    Ciao fellow campers. Am contemplating having a fixed LPG tank fitted. Some people told me to have one with aluminium tanks fitted as they are a lot lighter. Can anyone recommend a good installer in East Midlands area please. Many thanx

    weight is only a problem if you are short on payload as once fitted you will not have to lift them

    I suggest calling Autogas 2000 and see if they can recommend someone. They are a leading manufacturer of these systems. Based in Thirsk.

    Autogas 2000 did mine. We stayed on the premises on the Sunday night and they did the fitting on Monday. They took us to the station and then we spent the day in York to be picked up and then shown how it works. Back to Derbyshire for a late tea.
    Great service and product

    Why not go to Thirsk, they'll fit it in a day, I lived there for 40 years. Lots to do,great Wetherspoons, and Harry Lees (butchers) have best pork pies in the world. long walks on the flatts down by Cod beck.
    They are actually in Carlton Minniott but just a miles walk past the race course into town.

    Supply and fit, they don't manufacture.
    Edit: Chris does make custom tank supports

    We've just had twin Alugas refillable tanks fitted by Chris Wise and his team at Autogas 2000. Cracking job, I'll post pics later. Not only that but SWMBO had an excellent kip at one corner of his yard (in the van!) while I had a lovely walk over the fields behind. Just don't make the mistake I did and turn into his neighbour's drive. I did manage to get seven and a half meters of motorhome turned round between his neighbour's cars without going onto his lawn, a tribute more to the Sprinter's turning circle than my prowess as a MH driver....

    Just returned from Autogas 2000 today with ...........
    Stayed overnight in the yard waiting for delivery of the 14Kg cylinders which arrived this morning.

    Tanks and in-cab led display very efficiently fitted, filled with 56 litres lpg and we were away by mid day.:clap2:

    Icing on the cake is the discount given to subscribed Funsters.:BigGrin:

    Conrad Anderson again.
    Fitted a gas tank to our first M/H, several years ago now, but did a good job.
    We stayed in their yard overnight.

    Richard.
