The problem is that the vehicle is an SUV and that temps are expected to reach 37 C ( 98F ). The inside of a locked car would be much higher.
I think the cylinder will vent at some temperature and I don't want my RAV4 to blow up.
An external cargo box - it might get just as hot, but can be vented and would not have people or an ignition source in it. The box can be on the trailer (if towing the trailer at the time), even if it is just a small box on the bumper or tongue (rather than the big Escape box in front). The box can be on the roof rack of the SUV.

They have a cooler with them. I suggested they put the tanks in it with some ice and beer.

Thought you might like to see the butane stove, or the remains.
