2 full propane tanks on your trailer should be sufficient without carrying extra tanks. I have only filled my tanks 6 times in the last 4 years, and I do a lot of dry camping. When dry camping, water supply, waste water removal, and battery management are usually much more of a concern than running out of propane.
I think most members here, as well as the general camping community travel with the propane valves open to keep the fridge closed. Some tunnels and bridges might require you to shut the valves while traveling over/under the water. If your fridge vents are close to the fill tank of your tow vehicle, then you might want to shut the fridge down while refueling, also.
