Thumbs up FINALLY!!!!...a cover for my 20# Propane Tank.....

You can laugh - and that's OK.....but we all have our "buttons". Mine was seeing an ugly multi-colored "Charcoal Grill" 20# propane tank on the front of my rig where all the other gear was black-n-tidy......

I found a guy who does Custom Tailoring for RVs....he was offering covers for 30# tanks in white....I talked him into doing a cover for a 20# tank in black. He uses Sunbrella Fabric - the price was reasonable.....and I'm a happy camper.....

Sunbrella is some good stuff, had a cover made out of it for my boat not long after I bought it. Looking pretty nice I must say.

Mike;

The website is still up and he has the several ebay auctions running for same. The price went up a little since I got mine....but I'd do it again and again. Nice gentlemen...excellent work

Black is not the color you want on a propane tank in the sun. It's going to pop off on overpressure caused by too much heat.

Perhaps....if the temperature is over 120 degrees and the tank is overfilled.
