Carrying Extra Propane Tanks into Canada
« on: April 02, 2017, 08:32:06 PM »
Has anyone ever had any issue with carrying extra propane tanks into Canada? With the addition of the propane fire pit, our propane use has gone up. So, with a two week trip to Banff coming up we are considering bringing extra tanks along. Probably two extra 15lb tanks. They would be secured in the bed of the pickup. Has anyone done this before and what was your experience?

We carry a 30 lb cylinder that we use with our Extend-A-Stay for extended stops. We've crossed in and out of Canada many times, and it's never been an issue when we've been selected for a secondary inspection.

We carried extra tanks for our BBQ and fire pit when we traveled through Canada, but that was years ago. Nobody even asked about them.
