    Hi,

    What is the largest size gas bottle that people are using in this model. I currently have 2 x 6kg calor lite bottles. Would like to free up some space so am thinking about ditching one bottle and replacing the other with a larger one.

    Has anybody got larger bottles fitted, the owners manual talks about 11kg bottles but can't see any listed.

    Flogas do an 11kg bottle , but not Calor.

    https://www.flogas.co.uk/flogas-11kg-gas-cylinder-1

    It's also the standard size bottle in Germany ..
    German built vans generally hold 2 x11kg .. mine will also will hold 1 x 13kg + 1x 6kg Calor

    I now have 2 x 11kg Gaslow refillable.

    Thanks for the info, I think I will go with a refillable.

    Our Burstner take 2x13kg. We usually carry a red calor and a blue French one, it covers all the bases home or abroad.

    At the moment I am trying to generate more storage space so I figure with a refillable I can get away with one bottle(home or abroad) and use the rest of the locker for storage.

    Really - have you thought you may be carrying a load more than you actually need?

    Also have you checked whether you can store stuff in a gas locker?
    There certainly was a H&S requirement on our boat that nothing other than gas bottles be in the gas locker.
