Caravan summary

What's good?

Fantastic space - massive payload. Also once you are sited you have a vehicle to tour around all day.

What's bad?

nothing

Would you recommend it?

Yes

Style & comfort *****

Do you like the way it looks?

amazing looks - constantly get comments (and viewers) on sites.

Is it comfortable?

Extremely Comfortable - a real home from home

Ease of towing *****

Is it easy to tow?

It is a lot easier than a caravan - you do not get any pitching/snaking etc that you get with caravans.

Reliability & water ingress *****

Anything to look out for?

Nothing - as you would buy direct from the manufacturer they will help with any issues you may have

Practicality *****

Does it meet your holiday needs?

Extremely well - total comfort and space

Any modifications?

We had a television on a lift built into a desk - with printer etc. As it is a family run company you can ask their design team to accommodate any ideas that you may have.

Buying experience *****

Did you buy it new or used?

new

Where did you buy it?

Privately

What was the seller like?

The seller is also the manufacturer and we found them very friendly and helpful at all stages of the process. We even had 'baby pictures' sent to us as it was built!

Great to see a review of this on the forum, I wondered if anyone had one as we are interested in them.  But the weights are massive, did you have to get the Navara plate uprated?

Hmm,-- 4.3 tons on a muddy field, could be interesting !

You have to get the Navaras uprated to 6500kg MTW but this done by the supplying 5th wheel company but that will give about 600kg payload. Dave
