Camping Gaz 907s etc

Having recently changed campervan and with the new one being fitted with a refillable system, I now have some gas cylinders going spare.


I have a couple of full Camping Gaz 907s - £30 each.


Could be collected from south Cumbria, when you come to the Lakes for a winter weekend!

So what are you really trying to say?

I thought Camping Gaz had nothing to do with Calor. Are you actually saying you are not interested in this, or that the pricing is inappropriate? My understanding is that a 907 refill costs £50, although some places may discount to around £40 - such as : http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/calor-ga...-refill-p95486
Or have I been missing out on some better deals?

All I can say is "good luck" to you at £30 each, that may well seem a reasonable price in comparison with many retailers but from my experience it's not low enough to attract buyers.
I had a few of these about a year ago and sold them locally via "Gumtree".
I started at £25 each thinking that was a fair price but eventually had to reduce them to £15 each before I managed to find any buyers.

Help someone out when they're in trouble and they'll remember you when they're in trouble again.

Thanks for the explanation. As it happens I've had one on eBay for £35 for a few weeks and just yesterday have sold the two locally for £65 that way - so maybe starting optimistically and being patient can pay off! Or probably I just got lucky....

It just shows the power of Ebay to attract customers.

I didn't bother with Ebay on the basis that they weren't suitable for posting (and I had quite a few of them) but I'm glad you got a result.

I bought my 907, at my local Calor Depot, and the "cost" for the canister was £30, plus the refill charge.


Well done for selling them. Glad you got a good price.

There's any amount on ebay for a tenner, and if one looks at 'sold items' they often go for less, I saw one at £4.50.
You can exchange for a full one for £23 at Huddersfield Gas.
