I am going to try to have LPG "on tap" for my camper from the house. I figure that this group would have some good input on the hosing and connections to make this work.

Dan,
I'd like to suggest that you use "Gas" disconnects only for your setup.

gas-couplings

Choose "Gas Mate Coupling Series" from the URL page to see an example of the type of connector. They have a built in shutoff when disconnected and also have a thermal link to shut them down in the event of a fire.

I'd also suggest that you place a gas rated ball valves just before the connect on the supply side. Hoses? You could use CSST (Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing) - expensive, or use gas rated hose. Clamps? Do not even think about gear clamps. No way.. Use Oetiker stepless clamps.

Just my 2 cents...
