    Autogas2000 have 14kg refillable gas bottles available.
    These are the same circumference as the 11 kg but taller.
    The collars are removable and are designed for German vans where the lockers are taller.
    Any questions, please phone them.

    Need to check your gas locker very carefully, I have the 14kg ones but my locker is in the garage apparently they won't fit in Hymer side lockers also checked my mates Carthago C-Tourer they won't fit in that either. The Chic's lockers are a bit taller but don't know the exact dimensions.

    Don't think they fit the Exsis's with side lockers.
    Having had the 14kg for a couple of years now wouldn't want to go back to 11kg bottles, probably because we are quite heavy gas users.
