    Hi all
    I am a newly joined member, having been a caravanner for some years, have decided to get a motorhome and decided on a 2014 6m Bailey 520 and just collected it yesterday (Friday).
    So have lots of questions when I remember them all.
    Firstly do any members have the same model? the related questions will follow.
    General question is if I have 2 gas cylinders on board, can I get replacements in france, spain and portugal, or will I need different adaptors?
    :)

    No. Most countries have their own cylinders. Not only that some countries can be tricky trying to buy because they demand an inspection certificate.

    Look up Gaslow on here.

    Or give AutoGas a ring near thirsk they are very helpful and very reasonable we have had two vans fitted with their bottles , its much easier and cheaper than messing around trying to find gas when abroad you just fill up at the petrol stations at your outside filling point.

    If you have an external barbeque point you can buy a bottle and regulator abroad and attach it directly to Barbie point and back feed into van.
