    Hi
    In preparation for retirement next year i would like to get a refillable bottle fitted so i can tour longer in France which has been a long held ambition for years. I do not know wether to get 2 new bottles or just one and keep one calor and i would like it fitted i do not feel like DIY has anyone done this. I have looked at both Autogas and Gaslow systems any preference anyone

    Neil

    autogas and gasit are the same as gaslow, but much cheaper. can be fitted in an hour so most companies do it while you wait

    i bought a gasit system single 11kg and kept a 6kg calor " just in case"! easy to fit took about an hour...:thumb: so far come nowhere near needing the "emergency" 6kg calor and thats after 7 weeks in France touring on a mix of hook up and gas for fridge.

    if weight is your priority then Alugas is your choice, if its price then its gasit ( same system as Gaslow only bottles are red not yellow.

    any basic handyman can fit this in an hour, just check your joints. ( gasit provide free a simple liquid solution for leak testing )

    Because of weight we had an alugas fitted by Dave Newall with funster discount. We can carry a spare calor if needed, but if going touring for longer would buy a country adaptor for where we were going to stay so we could refill there.
