hi funsters, ha ha , just found out i cannot exchange calor gas bottles in france. that came as a surprise. as we are going for four weeks and trying out the aires we will be using more gas than with the caravan were we always booked on campsites with electric hookups. the weather forecast for france is not looking good for may, so my wife will require the heating on full blast, i.e.. more gas. next plan of action is to purchase a camping gaz bottle with an adapter and use it as a backup. this afternoon i will be having the air assisted suspension fitted, as recommend by a number of motorhomers. all i need now is a whip round the grandkids for some ice cream money. regards, pete.
