Hi, just joined so thought i'd try everybody out!

How much is a new Gaslow system, installed with two bottles?

Many Thanks

This certainly is the most active Motorhome Forum which why I have chosen it. I did travel around all of Europe some years ago in a Motorhome when I was made redundant and interest rates were 16%, let out the house and cleared off for a year

Off again for two to three months mid March

Thanks again

I paid circa 687 for two 11kg Alugas bottles, new Anti-crash Regulator and associated pipework fitted July 2016 by Autogas2000 at Thirsk... Broke even in the first year.

By my reckoning, then you've only had it fitted bareley 5 months, you must burn a fair bit of gas, to get £687 back.

Dunno but look at hamilton gas for bottle prices and then check out other suppliers on hoses and fittings

And they can be removed and placed into your next van as and when, so even more VFM.

If you are the slightest bit handy the system is easy to fit yourself, as long as you buy a hole cutter for the installation of the filler that’s about the only metal work you will be involved in.

Why not get a decent response fuel a fire and ask what is the difference from fitting myself and continually unscrewing an exchange bottle there is always the in locker fill option or pay someone to drill a hole some think it is rocket science to fit yourself

Agreed.

A mate and I fitted ours. The only time-consuming bit was cutting the hole for the filler - because a N+B skirt is quite thick metal and his hole cutter was a bit worn(?) but it was quicker than driving 10 miles to buy a new one;)

Just use dilued detergent to test the connections afterwards.

Another vote for Autogas 2000 at Thirsk. You can camp there overnight if you need to, on their car park. Excellent, friendly service and after sales.

You do not mention what size bottles you can instal. If you can fit 11kg and are thinking of fitting two, have a good think about your usage and thus requirement of buying two cylinders straight away and save around £160. If you are going to be on the go all the time you are going to be a position that you will be passing a LPG station(especially in Europe). So just top up your bottle when fuelling the van.

Like many on the forum, I frequently am away months at a time being retired. We have room for two cylinders but just carry one. We have found that we never have issues about running out. Times when I know I am going to be using the van statically for some time amount to once a year, over the Christmas New Year in Spain. I then get a local bottle and connect up giving me extra supply to use.
If you are using the van in the Winter a full 11kg will last just over a week running heating and fridge.

If the question was asked to those who have two bottles I bet many keep them topped up so do not need the two bottles.

Dead easy to fit your own , we fitted Easyfil with no trouble, the Easyfil comes at a very competitive price.

Love our Alugas system. We only had one cylinder fitted thinking we'd put a second one in if we needed it. So far it's been fine (10,000 miles) as we fill when the gauge goes off the green (about half full at that point) or on the way home if we will have enough gas to last until then. It has never been an issue. There are apps showing where LPG suppliers are.

Remember that you get a discount at Autogas 2000 (near Thirsk, North Yorkshire) if you are a paid member here :)

Thanks for all replies, interesting listening to people who have the system and the ones who have rigged it up themselves

Cheers
