    Add to that about £25 for pipe and fittings plus about £70 labour for a profrssional fit so circa £150 ish +vat would be a good price
    less if you DIY of course:thumb:

    Had one fitted about 4 years ago by Avonbridge, Nr Fordingbridge.

    I told them where I thought it ought to go. They told me why it shouldn't go there and where they thought it should go. I went with their suggestion and they have been proved right.

    Can't remember the cost.

    Sorry it's not oop north Hampshire but it's not too far to go for a good job.

    thanks for all your suggestions I am not a great diy'er so will have to pay and grin and bear it. I was quoted £225 inc vat by my dealer which I thought was a bit dear but probally not a million miles out.

    I was considering an external gas point in May last year; did not go ahead as it happens. I contacted Mark at Central Leisure Services, who indicated that the cost could be under £100 depending on fittings and the layout of our our motorhome. This was quite clearly an indication, not an estimate, but you might care to contact him and see if he travels as far as you - his service is mobile.

    CLS is a trade member of 'fun'.

    I thought about one but decided to carry a small Calor bottle instead. The reason behind my thinking was that a fixed point limits you to where you can BBQ so if it's a windy day you may want to be in a different position out of the wind. :BigGrin:

    This has worked very well for me as I often move the the leeward side of the van to BBQ, & I can use the bottle as a spare in case we get low on LPG. :thumb:

    I have been using a small patio gas bottle but got a bit worried when the van was searched at calais last year. fortunately they did not spot the bottle in the garage. gas bottles should only be carried in ventilated lockers.
    I dont Know how fussy the customs are on this rule.
