Heavy-duty polyethylene cover protects your propane cylinders from debris and rain. Handy lid opens for access to gas valves. Fits (2) 20-lb or 30-lb steel propane tanks. Polar white complements your RV.


We had to replace our cover as it was cracking. Installation of the tank cover was very easy... once we remounted the rack our propane tanks sit on the hitch! Factory had installed it crooked and the edge of the cover would bind on the sway bar mounts. A little PB blaster on the bolts, some measuring, some drilling, remounting the rack and we are all good. (This is not the fault of the cover but the manufacture of our RV.) We look forward to using the tanks without taking the cover off. Love the access door on top.


orderd tank cover and came in with what looks like grease marks on it and was dirty on the inside there was a hand print from when it was put in to the box. , dont think i will use them ever again i paid for something new and i got something that was dirty.
THE SHIPPING WAS GOOD but the product came in bad


Excellent product. Easy to install. It arrived sooner than expected. Will buy all my camper products from here going forward! Thank you!


Easy to install and looks good. Bungie corded the two tabs at the bottom under the trailer frame to prevent the cover from flying off. Also drilled two small holes in the top of the lid and cover (on the hinge side) and tie strapped the lid to the cover to prevent it from blowing off if accidentally left undone.


Delivery was on time. Suitable replacement on my old mallard.


Thanks Rose, everything looks great!!!

This has not weathered at all, great item!!!! Still looks new.
Becky G - 05/13/2015


Just what I needed. Hope this holds up to the elements. The cheep one that came with my trailer only lasted a few years and fell apart.
I do like the top hatch that gives access to LP bottle valves. Etrailer service has always been great. This is the reason for my return time and time again. Thank you Etrailer

I will defiantly recommend this product. It is holding up well to the elements. The top hatch is handy when switching bottles. Wish the two latches were designed a little different. I have lost one of the locks already.
Cris H - 10/27/2015


Product was easy to assemble and fit the LP tanks on my camper perfectly. Product was as described, arrived promptly and the price was right.

No change in my opinions of the products or your company.Flawless.
Steve M - 01/19/2018


Holding up well. Gets full sun and no problem. The accessible lid makes this the ideal cover. I use short bungee cords to ensure no loss of the lid during travel.


Fine but too expensive. This unit is approximately $xx more than the same item from Camping [store].

If you find the same item for less online, you can submit a Lowest Price Pledge to customer service. Here are more details:
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 10/05/2021


Nice product. It is a bit bigger than it needs to be to fit over the tanks, so you need to make sure you have room on all sides. I had to move my tanks a bit to fit in the space. Sure makes the tanks look nice. Lots of small screws with lock nuts. I hope the top cover screws stay in place while driving.


Great product. Worked as advertised with fast shipping. I really like the instructional help video and PDF downloads with installation help and instructions that is on the E-trailer website. I will try to send another review once item as been installed for a period of time to review durability with use over time.


still have to install looks excellent


My products were delivered promptly and was everything I expected. I havve order several things from etrailer and been very happy with every thing I have bought. If I have needed to call a representative they have been polite and friendly. I plan on doing all my future business with etrailer.


The replacement parts I ordered arrived on time exactly when they said it would. Excellent packaging.couldnt be happier with the service. This is now my go-to place for my travel trailer parts. Thank you all.


The Propane Tank Cover was delivered in less than a week. Very fast service. Cover fit nicely over my 30lb tanks, easy to install.


Inept Delivery department sent only one side of this cover. Made me have to contact this company. Don't like problems


Only received the two half shells of the tank cover. E Trailer forgot to shop the hardware and the tank valve access door.


ETrailer shipped everything very quickly. Prices were good and packaged well. Will definitely use them again.


The nuts and bolts were loose in the bo x.


Easy to put together and fits over 30 gal tanks as stated. 1 small problem with the plastic hinges on the top. Be nice if those were a little more beefed up.


Still looks like new after one year. A quality product, will buy again when the time comes.


Was glad to find parts for my trailer at an affordable price. All items were correct and shipped fast! Will be buying from here again.


great service and excellent products


Assembled easy and fit great.

  • My Propane Tanks Will Not Stay On The Rack And Bounce Around
    The bottom of the rack that screws (usually with self tapping screws) to the trailer tongue may be loose so the tanks are bouncing around or the threaded rod that clamps the bottles to the tray is not long enough to hold the size of propane tanks you are using on the rack. The rod may be too short in that case you would want to replace the rod or replace the rack. A dual Camco Propane Tank cover like part # CAM40542 may help to keep the tanks together in the cover and helps protect them...

  • Will Camco RV Tank Cover part # CAM40542 Fit on 2006 Ragen Toy Hauler
    Yes, since you have two 30 lb propane tanks the Camco RV Tank Cover part # CAM40542 would be exactly what you'd need and would fit well. We don't have every trailer in our fitguide yet (working on it!) so while your trailer may not be listed as a fit for this we know it will fit and work well since you have the correct size tanks for it.

  • Is There a Cover for a Single 30 Lb Propane Tank
    In most cases, 30 lb propane tanks are used in tandem. Therefore, the covers for them are all designed to cover both tanks. That said, so long as you have space you can use a dual tank cover which also allows you to add a second tank down the line if you want. This will mean there is extra space inside the cover but you'll still be providing protection for the tank from the elements which is the ultimate goal. I recommend the Camco RV Polyethylene Propane Tank Cover part # CAM40542 which...

  • Replacement Lid for Camco RV Polyethylene Propane Tank Cover
    Yes you can, the replacement lid you would need for your Camco RV Polyethylene Propane Tank Cover # CAM40542 is the part # CAM40543.

  • What Dual 30-lb Propane Tank Cover Can Stay On While Being Towed?
    The Classic Accessories RV Tank Storage Cover # 052963797305 you were looking at is just slid over the tanks, no straps or anything holds it on just the tight fit of the tanks. Keep in mind this cover is for storage only, and will not work when being towed. For something that does work when being towed you'll want either the Camco # CAM40542 in polar white, or # CAM40532 in colonial white. These hard covers slide over your tanks as well, but being made out of polyethylene keeps them from...

  • Replacement Lid for Propane Tank Cover for 20 and 30 Pound Steel Propane Tanks
    The Colonial White color is being phased out so the only white lid that will fit your propane tank cover is going to be # CAM40543 which is polar white. The other option is to replace the whole thing, # CAM40542, so it all matches.

  • How Do I Know What Size Propane Tanks?
    The 20 lb. propane tank is the most commonly used propane tank, the 20 lb. tank is the standard size tank for barbecue grills, turkey fryers, and smaller size travel trailers and pop-up campers. The 30 lb. tank is frequently found on larger RV's. The height is 17”-19” for 20 lb. tanks and 23”-25” for 30 lb. tanks. The base of each is comparable. For safety and convenience, if you are storing/transporting a propane cylinder I recommend the Camco Stabilizing Base for 20-lb or 30-lb Propane...

  • What Keeps Propane Tank Cover CAM40542 Secured to Propane Tanks
    Typically what people do to mount the propane tank covers like the part # CAM40542 is to use a bungee cord like # EM06755 to secure it below the tanks. The cover has two tabs on the bottom of it that allow for the hooks of the strap to be attached to so that you can secure it.

  • Recommended Cover for 33 lb Propane Tanks on Travel Trailer
    I went out to the warehouse to measure the hard Camco RV Polyethylene Propane Tank Cover # CAM40542 and it was 25-1/8" tall at the highest point. Since 33 lb tanks are typically used for forklifts I measured one we use in our warehouse and it was 28" tall so the hard cover won't work. You could potentially use a soft cover for the 30 lb tanks (it will be short) but I believe a cover for the 40 lb tanks would be better at they usually measure about 29" tall. For your application I recommend...

  • Solution for Covering Two 40 lb Propane Tanks
    The only custom fit propane cover I know of for dual 40 lb propane tanks is the Adco RV Propane Tank Cover # 290-2114 but this has a vinyl construction. The 40 lb tank size isn't super common on RV setups which is why you're having such a difficult time finding a hard cover. If the vinyl cover above is out of the question then I've seen people talk about just resting a cover for 30 lb tanks over it, like the Black # CAM40539 or White # CAM40542, and just leaving the bottom section of your...

  • Recommended Replacement Lid For Camco RV Polyethylene Propane Tank Cover For 2 20-lb Steel Tanks
    I called my contact at Camco about the replacement lid for a propane tank cover. The replacement lid, part # CAM40543 is designed to fit dual propane tank covers # CAM40523 or # CAM40542. These measure 20 inches long by 5 inches wide and includes the mounting hardware. This is the Polar White cover. If you need a Black cover the same size you would want part # CAM40549.

  • Recommended Cover for Single 7 Gallon Propane Tank
    The only hard single propane cover we have available is the Camco RV 20 Pound Tank Cover # CAM40565, which looks like it may be a bit too small for your 7 gallon tank. As you mentioned, we do have dual 30 pound tank covers with part # CAM40539 in Black, # CAM40532 in Colonial White, and # CAM40542 in Polar White. There's no particular reason you couldn't use this for your single tank, other than the fact that it will just be a bit roomy inside the cover. I have attached a short video demonstration...

  • Recommended Dual Propane Tank Covers For A 2007 Trail Cruiser Travel Trailer
    The Camco RV Polyethylene Propane Tank Cover # CAM40523 is designed to fit over two 20lbs propane tanks so as long as you're using 20lbs tanks you should have no problems. If you'd prefer black you can use # CAM40521. If you have 30lbs tanks you can use the Camco RV Polyethylene Propane Tank Cover # CAM40539 or # CAM40542 if you'd prefer white.

    You can absolutely mount the polished aluminum propane tanks on the tongue of your Airstream trailer so you don't need to use a cover like # CAM40542.

  • Recommended Trailer Tail Lights and Propane Tank Cover for 2006 Trail Cruiser Travel Trailer
    For your 2006 Trail Cruiser Travel Trailer I don't have the dimensions of your original tail lights, so I recommend trying to match those with LED options. For instance if you have 7-1/2x3 inch lights the Low Profile LED RV Tail Light w/ Bracket - Stop, Tail, Turn, License Plate - 8 Diodes - Driver Side # RVSTL21 and passenger side # RVSTL20 are a great option.
