Viking propane cylinders


Has anyone considered using a Viking propane cylinder? They are considerably lighter than a steel tank. Their website can be found I here: Viking Cylinders – 22-pound vapor. The 22 pound cylinder is 22.5 inches tall, which should under the front bunk with a couple of inches to spare. The tank itself only weighs 12 pounds.

Hi, I looked at these a few months ago and then mentioned them together with the link in another forum post only yesterday. I would certainly buy them when I'm next looking to replace my 30# tanks. Yes, they are more expensive but I have read they are longer lasting as well as being lighter and transparent so you can actually see how much propane you have left.
I have also found them on sale for much less than the official website.
