How does the exchange process work for retailers?

Little Kamper retailers receive shipments in cases of 12 cylinders. The same box is used for return shipments of empty Little Kampers from exchange transactions. Little Kamper retailers are credited for their exchange tanks to offset the difference between a purchase and an exchange transaction. 

How do the cylinders get delivered?

Federal law prohibits the air shipment of propane so we ground ship everything. The good news is that ground shipping is remarkably fast and reasonably priced to help us keep our prices as low as possible. 

How many times can a Little Kamper be reused?

SUPER IMPORTANT QUESTION!

First of all, don’t worry about it – that’s our problem. We retire old cylinders when you exchange them so you won’t get stuck with aged-out tank.  

Having said that, the Little Kamper is DOT certified for a 12 year service period from the date of manufacturing. Unless the tank is subject to unusual wear and tear, there is no limit to the number of times it can be re-used in that period. If you buy 2 Little Kampers and use them 5 times a year for 10 years, you’ll get 49 refills out of each. That’s a lot of tanks that won’t be ending up in a landfill or left in a park!

Can we refill the tanks in our stores?

The best part of our retail program is that we handle all of the dull, dirty, and dangerous work for you. Refilling propane tanks requires certified training, a safe place to do the job, and personal protective equipment to prevent accidents from becoming injuries. We have trained people using the proper equipment in a safe place so you can focus on helping your customers! 

May I buy a Little Kamper refill valve?

We do not offer the equipment required to refill a Little Kamper for retail sale. Dispensing propane is hazardous and we only allow trained employees to handle that process. The cost of Little Kamper exchange is deliberately set at an affordable price so that you can save on propane and avoid the hazards of dispensing gas. Leave that to the trained professionals.
