Storage above propane tanks

Made me a shelf that will allow me to store my power cable and a few other small items in the space above my propane tanks. Freeing up some room in the back storage of my 23D. Made out of a 1/2" piece of starboard.

It sets flat on top of the propane tanks. Very stable. Will not move due to cut out for cover brace

That's great! You should sell those. I'd be your first customer.

Very easy to make. Could be made out of plywood also
Just use your tank cover as a templet

Brilliant. So simple makes me wonder why someone else has not already come up with this.

It's possible that no one sells these because they restrict quick access to the tank shut off valves. Might be a code violation.

I love this one. Thanks for sharing. I would suggest one possible addition; a handle on each end to aid in lifting it up. It would be a easy lift "tray".

I don't see a code issue more than the hinged cover that is already over the tanks.

I keep my chocks on top of the tanks while traveling. I don't have a nice looking shelf like that though.
