    depends, i have a 6kg, mate has just gone to a 11kg. wouldnt go bigger than a 11kg tho.

    plus when your van is full with water and equipment do you know what weight is left on the payload?

    ive got a 6kg already for my bbq, so could use that,

    how many day/hours would i get from a 6kg.......?

    i was thinking i would need a 13kg, but smaller the better as u say u dont want to be overloaded,

    if im on my own i have about 100kg free if ive got lad working with me i have about 15kg free,

    but wouldnt need to fill tank as i only uses about 250 to 300 litres most days when theres 2 of us as we do trad downstairs

    not sure with that heater, and depends what settings you have it set on, but we have got upto 2 weeks out of a 6kg, about 8 days work maybe a little more.

    it will take some getting used to to get it running cost effective!

    you will need a red bottle propane bottle, not the bbg/patio heater ones,
