    Hello
    Have you got experience of having an LPG tank fitted underneath? e.g. who did it and about how much? It has been suggested £750 by a well known supplier ; which I think is a bit steep!
    Thanks Andrew :Wink:

    We made enquiries about having an underslung LPG tank fitted whilst at the Peterborough Show. We were quoted £700 - £800, supplied and fitted. We decided to stick with our Gaslow system.

    My last Hymer had a tank already fitted and it was the best ever. It even had a take off for a BBQ.The price seems fair, and the gas locker becomes extra storage,maybe that could be the wine cellar.

    We had our underslung tank fitted by Autogas2000 Ltd whose advert you will find down the right hand side of this page.

    Ours was fitted very professionally and to a very high standard.The tank is supported by a purpose made steel frame and not just steel bands (known to rust away) like some.

    Apart from the convenience of just topping up lpg whenever we want, there is a contents gauge in the cab, the gas is cheaper and we now have a spare locker where the bottles were.

    The price you mention is about right but give Chris a call ..... he don't bite and he is extremely knowledgeable!

    All the previous good advice. However when I changed vans this time I opted for Refillable bottles as these are easily transferred.

    There is a complete system available and the garage would fit it but cannot certify it. They do fit these tanks to council tarmac lorries so do know what they are doing. However as they said you would need to get it checked by a gas safe engineer to appease your insurance company. They are commercial vehicle fitters. In Witheridge. I could give them a ring for a quote if you like.
