907 Campingaz


Recommended Posts

Hi Ian, yes they are available on the broads, Kingfisher, being a French boat was equipped with it from new and we never had any issue finding it, normally at Jeckells but it seems most places you can get it. The main difference between it and Calor is you must buy rather than rent the cylinder. Kingfisher takes the slightly smaller one and we have two to use turn about so as not to run out ever. As it happens somebody gave us an empty 907 that will not fit in the locker and you are of course welcome to it. :-D

Hi Ian,

We use Camping Gaz too, Think it has something to do with availability in Europe but it is a major pain. Bottles are too small, gas is Butane only so no good under about 5 degrees and very expensive compared to Calor.

We fitted Propex heating to our old Sealine on Camping gaz, heating was brilliant, far easier to install than eber's and webo's, worked perfectly but Camping Gaz prices and cappacity on board has pushed us to install a seperate diesel tank just for the heating on this boat.

We have found Brooms to be consistantly lowest in price at about £15, varies a lot accross the broads have paid upto £27 at Ludham Bridge Boat yard, now we make sure there is always a spare full bottle on board.

HI,

I have 2 907 canisters that we use when camping, the regulator as Antares said just screws on, I usually take the pipe off of the rugulator and screw it on, not having to spin the canister itself. The best way to purchase them, is to buy an empty canister, I got one from ebay, about a £5, then exchanged it for a full one for about £14.00 total less than £20 for a full canister, normal cost when buying from camping shop £55 or so. If you do get one, make sure it has the carry handle that screws where the regulator goes or you could have a problem changing it for a full one.

As David says the +5 thing is not set in stone, we have found it works fine on the cooker and hob but the pressure drop meant that the heating didn't work on White Lady if it got below about 2 degrees, presume it is because the propex unit was more sensitive, not much comfort when it is freezing.
