Good day all, my RV 30lb bottles have expired their 10 year term so i'm going the route of new bottles. See pic below of a couple local places selling them. Anyone have any feedback if these are good/bad or otherwise?
Any feedback is appreciated.

While you're researching prices, have you checked a local propane dealer to get the cylinders recertified? If they're in good shape that may be your best option. Not sure about Canada but in the US there are 2 different recerts that can be done - 1 is good for 5 yrs, the other for 7.

I've also read that the composite cylinders don't directly fit in the same way as the metal tanks. If you have a mounting bracket setup or foot that the cylinder needs to fit into precisely (I do on the front of my trailer) it may be worth seeing if you can see one in person before buying to make SURE it will bolt in.
fwiw, here locally I could have had the tanks recertified for 1/2 the cost of new tanks, but decided to go new since the old tanks were rusting quite a bit, and have the older wrench style outlet instead of the newer big knob type. I need new hoses anyway, decided to just upgrade it all to the current design. As an added bonus, I could now use them on my home grill if I ever run out of gas in the middle of a BBQ.
Plus, the recert is only good for 7 years instead of the 12 of a new tank.
