I built a under body box for storage and my 2-20lb tanks, one is hooked up for the appliances, the other is the spare or for the BBQ, I find it better to use the 20lb tanks, you can exchange them for full ones just about every where, much easier then trying to find a place that will pump propane to a frame mounted tank, also you don't have to worry about you tank expiry dates,

I built mine using uni strut mounted to side supports & thru the floor, I read that uni strut is rated at something like 2700lbs, I could be a little off it's been awhile since I read it.

They actually setback farther than it looks in the picture plus I have supports connected to the side of the bus body so in theory if it ever gets hit in that area it will push the tanks in.

I've been using this exact mount under our bus for over a year. It is plenty strong and holds our single 20lb tank tightly. I've put ~15000kms with a propane tank mounted under the bus with no incident - which is a good thing! I also lock the tank to the bus with a cable and pad lock when travelling. It keeps the tank from walking off and would hold the tank well above the pavement if the mounts broke while underway.
