    I chose Alugas because it's lighter - and I trusted the installer to put a hole in the side of our van :D

    oh I just love an Alugas versus Gaslow thread.. :LOL:

    Choose Gaslow myself because it is now conforms to R67 ... (Liquefied Petroleum Gas Equipment | UN Regulation No. 67)
    which basically means it conforms to the latest LPG tank safety regulations..

    main safety feature is it has an excess flow valve to restrict the flow of gas if the hose ruptures.

    I installed twin 11kg bottles with auto changeover ..
    whilst fitting, I took the opportunity and replaced the 'prone to failure' Truma regulator for a Clesse.

    After reading all of those threads - and other forums too - and my own research... I decided on Alugas...

    Mainly because the MH is german (Knaus) and is was designed to use two 11kg bottles of that type ... :)

    However, I haven't actually got around to having it installed yet... :)

    So still running off of two dealer supplied standard 6kg bottles

    I chose Alugas for the lightness and the excess flow/rupture protection...
