LP Gas in Mexico/Central America

On two previous recent trips to Mexico, I've been noticing that the further I go South, the more often it is difficult to find a LP Gas retailer that has the proper adaptor to fill the two 30lb aluminum cylinders on my 2004, 25 foot Airstream Classic. I'd like to have my own adaptor made before my next trip. Would anyone know what are the two (Airstream and "Standard" Central American) connectors needed? Thanks/Gracias!

Any of the dealers in the big towns along the border should help you.

What Ahab said..
Also, remember this, what you're getting South of the border is most likely butane not propane..

One thing to remember about Butane. It is useless below 32*F. But, in warmer climates, it actually has more BTU's per gallon than propane.

Well, I've often asked and they've always assured me it was propane. It can get chilly during the winter in the mountains of Mexico and everything has worked properly!
