Also remember propane is heavier than air will collect in the lowest place on the bus. If that area does not drain it could be a fire hazard.

If some drunk T bones your bus, the lower skirting on the bus isnít gonna protect the tanks. Your going to have to build a steel cage to hold the tanks to protect them if your worried about someone hitting you.
