    :Angry: Boy, am I p****d off. I've just spent an hour messing about with trying to fit Gas bottles in the Gas locker. :shout:

    It has 2 x 6KG bottles and an Auto changeover unit fitted. One bottle is empty and the other half full or half empty depending on whether you are optomistic or pessimistic?

    I have an 11KG Spanish bottle and a 13KG bottle. BOTH FULL. Can fit either one in the locker? :shout: No way Jose. Blinking eck and blumbing Norah. I will NOT get a 6KG refill. Instead I will use a 1.5 metre hose and stand the bottle outside. :thumb:

    Sorry. RANT OVER FOR NOW. :Wink:

    Think I read that this was one drawback with this van lack of gas bottle storage, you have just proved it. Still the rant made you feel better, I hope:Doh:
    Make sure you fix bottle well, they can make matchsticks of furniture if they get loose.in the van
    Then you would need another rant, only bigger.

    :Smile: Thanks Dave. The Garage is fantastic, but WHY they skimp on the Gas locker size is stupid. I'm used to carrying spare bottles. I have 4 Spanish bottles for our Newmar. :Wink:

    Bite the bullet and fit a 70 ltr tank between the accommodation steps and the rear spring hangers. The throw the portable bottles away.

    The difference in weight is not that great and the convenience is worth the work.

    3/4 full timing you get your investment in about 5 years.

    If you want more info and photo's send your email. but be quick we are off and out of this dump in less that 2 weeks.

    :Smile: Thanks Doug. I have considered that route, but I only use the Suntor for commuting and while in the UK. 2 Bottles should last me a fair old while. I just don't like the rip off charges for an exhange 6KG. Especailly as I mainly use the CHEAP 11KG Spanish gas for most of the time. :thumb:
