Default propane heated HLT, electric rims tube combo

I am thinking of a new brew stand / system but due to costs, and that fact that I already have burners and such, is it sensible to use propane for the HLT (manually of course) and use a RIMS tube (ala Sawdust guy)? Seems like it would first be cheaper and second would not require 240V.

That's how some of the Sabco Brew-Magic systems are. Why not?
