Gas Tank / Heater

Getting rid of on-board Butane or Propane bottles have some more very clear advantages for your camper van.

Space is a precious commodity

Alongside our propex blown air heaters, we now offer an underslung LPG vapour tank with or without a BBQ hook-up point to fit onto your VW T5/T6 camper van. An on board gas tank for VW T5 or T6 can save valuable space and is much safer than on board tanks.

Space is a precious commodity inside your van conversion. Storing your gas outside underneath your van not only saves space inside your vehicle, but allows you to quickly and easily refill the tank at your local petrol station. Our local station charges just 0.72 per litre for LPG.*

Advantages of our underslung LPG tank

Getting rid of on-board butane or propane bottles and replacing with an underslung LPG tank has its many advantages:

  • Significantly reduce the cost of gas
  • Save valuable internal space (and pack more kit for your trip!)
  • Quick and easy fill-ups on many petrol station forecourts
  • On-board level indicator, so no need to carry a space bottle
  • No more freezing butane – LPG goes to -42°C
  • Reduced amount of gas drop out holes required, meaning less holes in your van
  • It’s safer as reduced amounts of gas run and connect inside your vehicle
  • Installed in line with UKLPG CoP11 and NCC CoP306

Controls and safety measures

Controlled from inside the camper van, our propex underslung gas container uses a handy on-board level indicator to tell you how much is in the tank so you wont need to use up even more space carrying a spare bottle “just in case”.

Before any fitting can take place, certain requirements must be ascertained. Tanks and fill points must retain a certain ground clearance and be able to withstand a high impact and pull force. (So bear this in mind before lowering your camper too much!)

If you have any questions or would like to talk about the specifics, please do get in touch with us.
