Today we're going to be taking a look at part number CAM40565. This is the Camco RV Propane Tank cover. This cover is going to protect your propane tank from dirt, rain and flying debris. It's designed to fit one 20 pound single tank. Here on top we're going to have an attached lid. This is going to open to have easy access to your valves and regulators. All you have to do is un-thread or loosen up this thumb knob and it pivots out and then allows the lid to open up and you can easily gain access to whatever it is you need to on your tank.

And then it's very to secure, you just put it back and then tighten it back down. It's going to keep that lid closed. The heavy duty custom molded polypropylene construction is going to offer premium protection from the sun's damaging rays so you don't have to worry about fading. Very easy assembly and installation. The cover is actually two pieces, a front piece and back piece. Then all around the seam on both sides it's going to be held together with screws and lock nuts. Take a look at the inside and here on the bottom.

You can see that we're going to have the bottom tabs and bungee holes so that's going to let you attach a strap there. That way you can secure this around your tank. This cover is black in color so it's going to streamline the look of your RV. The product is made here in USA. If we take a look at the overall dimensions. From outer edge to outer edge it's going to give us an overall length of 18 inches long, right around that measurement.

Overall height from bottom to top is going to be about 19 and 3/4 of an inch. And then the thickness or the depth, that's going to give us a measurement of 13 and 1/2 inches from side to side. That's going to do it for today's for today's look at part number CAM40565.

Camco RV Polyethylene Propane Tank Cover for (1) 20-lb Steel Tank - Black - CAM40565

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (289 Customer Reviews)

This heavy-duty polyethylene cover keeps your propane tank free of dirt, rain, and debris. The lid opens for easy access to your tank. Cover snaps on underneath (1) 20-lb steel propane tank. Black color complements your RV.


Purchased to cover a single tank on a 22' travel trailer. Easy to assemble the two halves together. The door on the top allows for easy access to the propane tank valve and there is sufficient room to accommodate a propane fuel guage. After a year in the weather, there is some slight fading of the color but a quick wipe with Armor All or Rejuvinate and the shine returns. It was a tight fit between the battery box and my Bulldog electric jack stand. I had to rotate the stand 180 degrees to make everything work. My only dislike is the tabs on the bottom (to secure it to the trailer)which require you to get on the ground to unhook whenever you need to change out the propane tank.



Fine. As mentioned, the black plastic fades in the weather but a coat of Rejuvenate brings back the sheen. I still dont like the tabs on the underside of the cover.


I bought the single tank cover and I rated the cover with only 3 stars for two reasons that I was unawarenof before the purchase. The method of attachment to the frame/bottle is via two small holes at the bottom of the cover and a bungee cord of your choice. You could make a sturdier connection via a homemade piece of flat bar but that makes it harder to swap bottles out. The second issue involves connecting the propane hose to the bottle. I have two choices on my trailer which are a) buy a longer hose that will go under the cover and back up to the tank connection or b) cut an access hole in the back of the cover. The longer hose is obviously more expensive and the hole would need some sort of grommet to protect the hose and keep out heavy rain. So, I think Caamco needs to modify the design. FYI, my hose is still too short if I tried to enter via the top access panel.

After one year, I had to replace the top-mounted access door because the screw apparently was not tightened enough and the wind blew it off somewhere in west Texas. If I had to do it over again, I think I might try one of the various soft covers for a better fit and no modifications.


Finally found a single 20 pound tank cover. Again, etrailer had what I wanted. This was so easy to put together and it looks good on my trailer. I have bought a lot of merchandise from etrailer and not once have I been disappointed.


I had asked in the question section if this would fit a 2018 Viking Epic 1906 pop up camper with pic. I measured my tank situation and decided to order it. IT FITS! I did have to move the tank a little, but it fit perfect! Very happy with etrailer. See attached pic.


Awesome propane tank cover could not find a single tank cover till I found your website works good looks good thank you very much a plus


I purchased the Black Camco RV Polyethylene Propane Tank Cover to match the black stone guard on our travel trailer. It looks really good and offers protection for the propane tank from road debris. Additionally, it helps keep the tank clean during storage between camping trips.


It was fast and easy, very happy


Happy with my purchase. My only suggestion would be to improve the lid latch, it can be easily broken.


Just what I ordered. Fast delivery too.


Always on time and great quality products. is your hook up for all your trailering needs.


The order was incomplete. The package contained only the two halves of the tank cover and did not include the hardware. I called customer service and the issue is being rectified. The customer service rep, Jessee, was outstanding but confused about the missing hardware. I suppose these occurrences happen from time to time, but it's still a bit of a hassle to deal with.



Exactly what I wanted. Seems durable. Many folks have the double propane tank covers but etrailer was the only one with the single tank covers.


Quick easy clean look!


This propane tank cover was great on our new travel trailer. We had to get one big enough to go over the brackets and this was perfect! Super fast shipping, too! We are very satisfied with this product and


If you are lookin for a propane cover for a trailer with a single tank on the front, this one is great. Had it for a year and still perfect condition. Looks great, protects great, and easy to install/remove. It’s a no brainer.


Great products, awesome selection, always fast shipping


The glue that stuck the parts inside made a huge mess & won't come off. We've already assembled/installed it so probably won't take apart to do a photo. The adhesive held the bag of bolts, etc but was gloppy & excessive. Not a big deal as it's now hidden but detracted from a sense of high quality. No worries.


Good product the only improvement I would make would be to have a factory hole in the back so that you would be able to pass your propane hose directly to the valve I had to cut my own hole


The product arrived in short order. It was very easy to assemble and install and solved the issue of having a single tank exposed to the elements. I did have to drill a hole in the back to access my propane hose but that was easy.


Cover looks nice but was too small in diameter to get the LP hoses inside. After I cut a hole in the side for the hose to go in, it worked well


I am very pleased with shipping and the quality of the Camco tank cover. Easy installation and it looks really good on my camper.


Very fast shipping, awesome product not many places carry a single tank cover very happy , highly recommend, thanks again.


Excellent value for the price. Assembles easily and installs easily. Works and looks fine.
Thanks again etrailer.


Excellent product and a very reasonable price. Fits perfectly.


was a snap to put in Lovett add flair to my travel trailer I am completely satisfied

  • Will the Camco Propane Tank Cover Part # CAM40565 Fit Over a 20Lb Tank with Regulator and Bracket
    In order to clear the leader hose and regulator mounting bracket on your 20 lb propane tank with the Camco RV Polyethylene Propane Tank Cover part # CAM40565 you would more than likely need to rotate the tank so that the backet and leader hose are facing the side of the trailer where the larger part of the cover is. We have not yet tested this cover on your propane tank with the regulator mounting bracket but so long as the unit does not exceed 18-1/2" wide x 13-1/2" deep the cover should...

  • Can Camco Cover and Base for RV Propane Tanks both Install at Same Time
    The Camco Cover part # CAM40565 and the base part # CAM57236 both can't install at the same time. You'd have to decide which of these two you'd want to use. Basically there isn't room in the cover for the base to also fit.

  • Do All 20 Gallon RV Propane Tank Covers Use Same Lid
    The replacement lids for propane tank covers aren't universal so since you aren't sure that your cover is a Camco (sounds like it's not) I can't guarantee this would work. Instead your best solution that we can provide would be an all new cover like the # CAM40565.

  • Replacement Lid for Propane Tank Cover
    We do offer a replacement lid for Camco RV polyethylene propane tank covers like # CAM40565 that fits a single 20-lb tank. The replacement lid is part # CAM40567. The lid is black and measures approximately 12 x 5-inches. This lid is specific to this particular product so I cannot guarantee its fit on another cover, but we do have other replacement lids. All covers and all lids are shown on the linked pages.

  • 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 # CAM40532 which is Colonial 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 on this cover that you can also check out.

  • How to RV Propane Tank Covers Mount to Trailer
    Typically what people do to mount the propane tank covers like the part # CAM40565 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.

  • Parts Needed To Switch From Dual 30LP Propane Tanks To a Single Propane Tank On RV Camper
    You can mount the Single-Bottle Liquid Propane Gas Rack # 2020-JR to your current tray holding your propane tanks. You will then be able to replace your current changeover regulator to the Regulator # 37207-30375. You may end up needing an extension hose depending on how much additional length your current hose has. We also have a Single Tank Cover # CAM40565 but you will still be able to use your current cover since the cover will strap around the base already on your trailer.
