When we bought our Lancashire from new, we had a couple of Gaslows fitted (I can't handle the cylinders like I used to)it wasn't until after a couple of years of use i thought that I could use the gas locker for other odds and ends. so I phoned Mark at Auto Sleeper and asked if ther was room but he said no, not to be deterred, I went into Conrad Anderson, they took a look underneath and said yes, they priced the job up and said £700.00, that was a hundred more than what I was expecting, but within a couple of minutes he said it would cost me £800.00, always suspicious of sudden price changes, so decided to leave it for now

Hi Breakaleg,
We did have a post on here some months ago regarding fitting an LPG tank and I believe the price was £700 because the exhaust had to be straightened out to prevent the bends in it fouling the tank. On our van the exhaust is curved round in what is almost a coil, just where it would be convenient to fit the tank, and the member concerned told us that it took the fitter (some times 2 of them) a full day to sort everything out.

Hi Murph,
It wasn't the £700 quote so much as, he put it up to £800, when I didn't respond to the first figure, perhaps he thought that I am rolling in it?
However, £700 was more than what I was expecting, if the van was new, I may have had it done, but as it is 6 years old (we tend to trade at ten years old) and the only reason for doing it was to gain an empty locker, that we have managed without for six years, it didn't seem worth it.
Pete
P.S Happy new year to you all.
