Yep, now that my baby is here, they are old old propane tanks. I've decided to get 2 new 30lb aluminum tanks. Open for suggestions about where to buy them. I saw them on the vintage airstream site? Has anyone purchased them there?

Vintage Trailer Supply has them: Vertical Aluminum Propane Tanks

You might try Worthington directly to see if they have someone local you could get them from - shipping might be cheaper. On the other hand VTS has free shipping until the end of January!

If you buy used make sure they have the new style valves or you will not be able to have them filled.

If those original cylinders are aluminum, and they are in decent shape, I wouldn't bother getting new cylinders. Recertify, refit with OPD valves, fill them up, and use them!

I had new valves put on my aluminum tanks last summer, it wasn't too expensive - far cheaper than new tanks.

I'm guessing from the rust that those are steel though.
