This is what I mean by too large for 2 persons:

I would agree with Devon Boy. They are pretty large items. We had one with our MH and it lived in the garage and remained assembled. When we switched to a caravan that option wasnít available, so we had to drop down to the smaller version.
One important thing to bear in mind is that the cooking pans/plates etc are BIG and donít fit into any form of sink on any normal campsite, so cleaning them can be a bit of a trial!
For two I would also suggest a Safari Chef, much more compact but plenty big enough.
Whatever you go for itís the low pressure version you require. An external BBQ socket is pretty much a vital accessory to have with one and, as has been said, get a decent length of hose.
One final point, the non stick surface is very good indeed, but fragile, so make sure you never use a metal implement with it, silicone, plastic or wood only.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)

We have one for the MH and like it so much we bought another one for the house. We have the Carri Chef 2.

Great piece of kit: simple to set up and use and easy to clean. A bit unwieldy when collapsed but I keep the legs separate from the carry bag, just tied up with a bungee cord. Having the CC2 means that you can easily cook for 2 and if you cook separate foods you can keep them away from each other on the plate to avoid them mixing (stop your fish getting touched by burgers or similar)

If you go for it I'd recommend the Braai plate version to start. Its the one with the half flat/half ridged plate, When we bought the second one it came with the plate with all ridges and little holes, which we never got on with so sold that plate and bought another Braai plate.

If you are a member of any of the big clubs (C&MC or C&CC) then it may be worth checking to see if they have any discounts on at the mo.

Donít argue with idiots because they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience. óGreg King

I've bought a Cadac Safari Chef 2 LP QR and now need to connect to the Gaslow system.
Has anyone done it themselves and, if so, what components do I need to buy and fit ?
Any help appreciated.

You now need an external gas point to be fitted. Not really a DIY job as I a, pretty sure any work on the gas system must to carried out by a Gas-safe accredited person. (About £120 fitted I would think)

Not a DIY task, unless it is certified by a GasSafe engineer with the LPG additional certificate.

If you have one fitted (as we did), get an isolating valve fitted inside so that it can be turned off from the inside in case of problems - that extra safety valve makes the whole thing safer.

We had ours fitted close to the main distribution valve next to the cooker / fridge, so that the actual take off point is close to the door.

Ploddy is right about the cost assuming not too inaccessible and, of course, must be copper pipe and compression fittings.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
