    For winter camping, a very wise choice.

    Look on gaslow and alulite websites and ebay for prices.
    Not cheap but soon re-cooped in cost of gas saved.

    I would say yes very worth it in your case, and if you have the space under your van for a chassis tank then you will then free up your gas locker for other crap:D

    If you are into diy then I'd say you should be able to fit one yourself for about £400 but if fitted by a pro then add £200-£300 to that(y)

    As you are in Richmond have a word with Autogas 2000 near Thirsk about Alugas.

    Whichever system you go for get the largest bottles that will fit in your gas locker - or as posted above have a tank fitted. It irks me that I can only fit in 2 x 6kg bottles.:sick:

    go on the gas it web site for a dual bottle system and you wont get better on price, also I've done a lot of wilding in the last 18mths and the two things I did when I got my van was get the gas it system and a solar panel never needed to be on a site since.
