    As far as I am aware external BBQ points are standard and a bullfinch connector is usually supplied.

    "oh no there not" :) in my best panto voice.
    More recent Autotrails have the Bullfinch connector, that's common and standard on a lot of newer vans.
    Older AT's use a clip in connector and there are 2 sizes. My 2005 van had that type but sorry can't remember the size.
    So all depends on your van and what socket is fitted.

    This is the type I have currently and had on my previous van which was an Autotrail.

    Sorry Mike it appears that you weren't enquiring about the usual regulator but something else!!

    Mine's an older Autotrail 2002, the BBQ point is recessed, so awkward to measure.

    The fittings you posted images of look like for compressed air not LPG
    2002 is awkward, was it fitted in 2002 or 2004 onwards as gas pressures changed and so did the connector

    Totally correct, I assumed they were similar fittings, I guess that was wrong then.

    None of those, they are airline connectors.
