Despite my usual Bear Grylls minimalist camping kit, sometime we go a tad overboard.
This place is about 7 miles from home and catering for 20 so I had to up the ante from the the usual two Coleman stoves. And yes, unless its throwing it down we cook outside!

Morocco also uses the camping gaz type cyls but I would recommend you buy a cyl while there as you won't be able to swap them here easily

Local cyls are cheap to buy and cheap to refill as thats what the locals use, no piped gas supplies.

I can highly recommend a gas-it setup , have one in the Iveco , unfortunately the bottle is too big for the demountable, but I might fit a 6kg setup> Gas-it seem to be alot cheaper than gaslow and are very helpfull.

With a pigtail system you could use the gas-it as backup and a local cyl on the pigtail

On my Tischer I added a window on the left of the "capucine" ( where is the bed); i have installed a car radio and now i'm building a bike rack for a tandem bike.
