I bet you could find a fabrication shop that would cut them in half, make a rim to hold them together again, slip them over the actual 20 pounders and route the hoses out the bung hole. At the least you would have a set of very original tank protectors

When do I get off? Where do I get off? Can I get off? Will this flight ever end?
Parachutes are provided at the gate for non-stop flights, in case you want to stop before the plane does...

And they are still made the same way!!!

Oh oh oh

How about making kegs out of shiney new aluminum propane bottles???? Than you just have a second line running in to the trailer bar area. I bet the WBCCI would not mind that .

No one would be the wiser!!! I'm all over it.

So when they complane about the keg on the font of your trailer, you can just switch the bottle out and act all bumed out and late have a good time telling storys around the camp fire.

My twisted brain is really turning now!
I guess I will have to contact some of the beer distributers in the area to see what a used/defective keg would cost, and look into buffing one down 'till it shines! [After all, we have to keep with the Airstream look, right? ]
Since I'm on the Gulf Coast, I guess it will take several coats of 'clear-coat' to protect it from the salt air, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
First one to complete this project HAS to post some pictures!
The retirees have an unfair advantage over us working stiffs!

Rick--

--Sounds eerily like the lyrics of the immortal Kingston Trio, ". . .he may ride forever, 'neath the streets of Boston, . . .he's the man who never returned!"

How about a beer keg disguised as a propane tank disguised as a beer keg?
