When I was managing the (resident) RV park north of Lake Tahoe, we sold propane on site for the extra revenue. While this was great for the bottom line, it was nearly a full-time job for one of my people (650-spaces).
At some point I decided this process was too labor intensive, so we called our propane distributor and had them truck out a supply of 100 gallon tanks. They would top it off on delivery and then service this new route once a month during the camping season (6,000+ elevation - we were open May thru October)… and the tank would last an average of 3-4 months depending on useage.
The park still made the same profit (on the resold gas - we would bill it back to them), but we cut the labor cost to nothing by having the propane company do all the work.
Anyway… the point of this little story is that your homebuyer can probably get the 100 gallon tanks (along with the cost savings and convenience) if they call around abit.
