I am thinking of installing Gaslow to my van and have been looking at prices of a twin bottle set up 11kg &6kg.

The price of a twin system from Gaslow UK is £587 but unfortunately for me Gaslow UK don't post to France.

So I price up the twin system from the French supplier and the price of same twin system is €931 which at the current exchange rate is £821 :eek::eek:.

I would love to know how the French supplier can justify a £250 price difference. No wonder there ain't many French vans with Gaslow installed.

Looks like a trip to Gaslow in Leicester is on the cards, even with fuel and tunnel I will still save around £150.

Happy New Year readers..

@elamessa I am currently at a French dealers buying a new ( to me) van and having the Gaslow system fitted at the same time as they are an agent for gaslow. No idea on price, I have negotiated it into the deal, but they are super people and may be worth a call. The boss is Jean Michelle, and Engin is also helpful. May be worth a call, By all means mention my reccomendation if you call, I'm the one parked in my van in their premises for the next week!!!

Narbonne Accessoire are agents for Gaslow (recent I think) and have displays of Gaslow at Angouleme and Bordeaux I believe, unless memory is playing tricks. As they are a nation-wide company, I guess they have the same at all branches.

The hoses will be rubber not stainless which will reduce cost of kit gasit 11kg cylinder on its own £8 cheaper than gaslow the 6kg gasit is more expensive than the gaslow by a couple of quid

gaslow does seem to hold very good used prices though

They mostly still work on £1= 1,50/1,60 .
Try looking at Uk car prices compared to EU a 20k car in uk is 30-32k euros. . Never changed .

You are correct, Narbonne do sell Gaslow http://www.narbonneaccessoires.fr/nos-accessoires/gaz/r/r-p340221-gaslow.html
But again €359 just for a 11kg bottle with no filling kit is way to much.

Narbonne prices are horrendous. Nearly 1000€ for a two-bottle DIY installation. I once queried the filler price with them at a show and was told that was the price (plus mark-up) as supplied by Gaslow.

Had I known I would have brought two over for you in the van when I came. Too late now but there might well be somebody else who might do it for you

Update. Purchased the Gaslow system from Hamilton Gas Products - thanks to those who mentioned them.(y)
https://gasproducts.co.uk/caravan-marine/gaslow-refillable-gas-cylinder-systems.html
Good service and delivered here in France in 3 days.
Fitted system myself and filled with gas (wasn't keen on this bit but it filled ok) and whole system took 37.5 liters.

Just need to clip the fill hose to side of the locker. Took just over 2 hours to fit.
