    Default Gas bottle for Echo 4

    The older Echo trailers have a gas bottle compartment that is only 29 cm deep. Which presents a problem since all new generation gas bottles seem to be at least 32 ++ cm high.
    Even my old generation 5 kg bottle with regulator is higher that 29 cm.

    My options seems to be :

    1) find a gas bottle that is less than 29 cm high with regulator - does any anybody know where I can find that ??
    2) Fit an inline regulator - does that exist and where do I find it ??
    3) Fit a high pressure gas stove - any suggestions ??

    I need some advice please.

    Thanks

    Echo can refit the new plastic bumpers that take the new gas bottles. Or you go look at cash crusaders for the the old type bottles that fit (cheaper option).

    Look at the Pabar gas bottles, they make both a #7 and #10 size bottles which has very similar dimensions as the old Cadac bottles. The new Chinese made Cadac bottles rated in kgs do not fit the older brackets.
