There are a lot of gas dealers in your location. You could have them look them over and make suggestions.
I like aluminum. We use our 30 lb'ers for the grill, the Airstream and when we run out of gas in the house tank (Laugh, but sometimes it happens even on auto fill). The 30 lb'ers are easy to move and last a long time. Just don't leave the grill on.

Thumbs up steel

the ones i currently have are steel unfortuantely.
looks like campers inn is my best bargain, and lowest refill fees too.
but the aluminium ones will have to come down the road. i would love to have them though.

All good advise on the tanks. However, don't get too negative on the winter camping. Granted, I may be a little off center, but I love to winter camp. A few years back I just hated the thought of camping season coming to an end. Therefore, I just made a few adjustments to camping style and now camp at least once-twice a month year round. Of course, it doesn't get as cold in Missouri as those of you who live in the north and east (coldest I have camped is -5 degrees). Snow is great, but I try to stay in port when there's ice. Totally different things to enjoy, buy still most enjoyable. As others have stated, the 30's have always been more than adequate (summer and winter).
