Under the pillow!

Not camped in my van yet but mine already has a bracket in the cab which I will use. I also plan on getting a fire blanket as well.

Default Re: Best place to put your fire extinguisher

Ours is fitted to the side of the passenger seat base, think it must have been fitted there when Auto Sleepers carried out the conversion
it appears to be easy enough to grab in a hurry but yet doesn't seem to get in the way (missis never complains anyway)

Just fitted an optical smoke alarm this morning to replace the older Ionisation type that was previously fitted.

Give me a chance I've still got the AA toolbox in the back! I think a methane alarm might make more sense for me lol.

i think a fire blanket is most important . if god forbid the fire got hold of you or a family member this would be the quickest way to put them out . smoke alarm , extinguisher (behind drivers seat ) and fire blanket blanket by my head end of the bed
