Propane Tank

7:52 am:
I would like a propane tank to be mounted to the bottom of Box Van's floor. There is an open area there just perfect for that purpose.

I am thinking about the Manchester #6829 tank [Link].





8:23 am:
I slept like a log in Grandma's attic last nite. Scampy's mattress fits the attic very well. I got up there using the step ladder.

Our solar panel was put in front of the pass-thru. This was done so that the lights inside Box Van would not give away our presence.

Little iPhone captured this view from Grandma's attic.



9:46 am:
Eating out for breakfast on Sunday is kinda crazy. So many people do Sunday breakfast! I drove by Denny's and Broken Yoke cafe. Their parking lots are jammed! The same with McDonald's.

But Jack In The Box had lots of parking. I brought back to Box Van a Sausage Egg Biscuit, hash browns, and coffee.


4:12 pm:
Heading to Dixieline Hardware to buy some hardware for a clothing rack.

My temporary clothing rack which uses a jury-rigged Bessey clamp is a disaster!

Temporary hanger mess!

  1. Hi George.... that type of tank is preferrable to those upright tanks. Flying-j and other gas stations can easily fill them. The larger size means longer use and fewer times to fill in a year. Much safer imho. Probably a plus when you change your insurance to RV status...
    Btw, do you have any concern about causing people to commit the sin of envy?😁😁😏😏

    1. Ernie,

      Do you mean envy for Box Van?

      Or perhaps, envy because I am having such a fantastic time with all-of-this?

  2. Should that be Grandpa's attic?

  3. You might want to hang a opaque curtain in the cab behind the seats to cover the hole. Something artistic so it would look like it was there for the sake of art as opposed to hiding you cut-out and wide enough to look good. An American flag or something.

    1. Squire,

      That's a good idea!

      It's a temporary fix until the sliding door is installed!

  5. Usually those propane tanks are mounted to the main frame rail, not to the floor of the box. Makes for a more secure connection that may be a factor if you're (heaven forbid!) ever in another accident like you had with Miss Tioga.

    1. Thanks for mentioning this, I wanted to but sometimes how I state things come across a little harsh.

    2. Lou,

      You are sooooo correct!

      Thank you so much for pointing that out to me! 😎

    You might want to consider cutting 2 smaller holes in the wall near the floor behind each seat and installing a blower in each to move some cabin heat/AC to the rear area.

    Looks like Scamp 13s sell pretty fast on the Fiberglass RV site. I haven’t seen you advertise there yet. Don’t think that site is as prone to scammers as Craigslist and some others.
    I am enjoying your new project and think it might be fun to try myself.
    Good luck and have a great day!
