That’s good news. Im going to finally mount mine in my teardrop this weekend.
Very awesome, good luck to ya! That's the other thing I really like about this particular mounting bracket is it seems to have an insane amount of mounting holes, at least in the base. My next task will be figuring out how to mount it to my cheapo Surco rack but it shouldn't be too bad. You should post final mounted pics if you feel so inclined.

I finally mounted the propane tank in the galley of my teardrop. This niche is where an ice chest has lived for 13 years. Since upgrading to a fridge in thecopcar, I’ve been thinking how to repurpose the space. I’ve got several waterbricks that can be added to supplement the 11 gallon footwell tank in my rig.

Damn awesome! Looks great! These mounting brackets are so much better then shelling out $100+, so glad I found this thread. I also have the 11 gallon footwell water tank myself, can't wait to use it this season. Got a tankless water heater shower set up I'm itching to use on longer trips as well. Here's what I came up with for mounting on my rack for now. Stupid short garage door means I'll have to leave it off till I gear up for a trip but oh well, it's easy enough to get on/off with a couple bolts.

Some good ideas here. I usually take at least a 20lb tank with me strapped into one of my gas tank holders on my jeep. Here is SoCal you can't have a wood fire most of the year. I take a propane fire pit at those times of the year so a 20lb tank is needed.

That looks pretty cool. It’s nice to have that kind of rack.

I mounted my tank to my hi-lift jack, fairly simple brackets with the powertank mount.

This is what my wife and I came up with, I think the quick fist clamps and the craftsman ladder mount and a locking tie down costed around 60 bucks. I'll post up some pics with it mounted
