    HI

    Just wondered if there were any other Elnagh owners on this site? and how you find yours good and bad?:thumb:

    I love mine excellent winterising, good payload 960kg, comfortable etc although i would have a different layout in future but still think it is a great MH

    I have seen the opinion "your third MH is the right one" more than once.

    One thing I'm sure of, there is no such thing as perfect. It's all a massive juggling act. Only Dr Who got it right.

    Hi,we have a Sea Newlife Ice LP,I think these are basicaly the same.Love ours too and also would change layout.Have a fixed bed which is great but find find dinette seats uncomfortable after a while and would be nice to lounge in evenings without going to bed.:RollEyes:

    Exactly our problem.

    I don't know if it helps you but I eased the situation by fitting a swivel to the driver's seat which now adds one comfortable to the mix.

    Extra cushions help too.

    I think one problem is the lounge seats are the 3+4 beds so the foam is mattress hardness not lounging hardness.

    Hi, We cant fit a swivel seat as it is obstructed by sink unit and back of dinette seat.The table and seats do convert to a small supposed to be double bed but still means sitting upright and one of our dogs has to vacate from under the table and that means a gsd and newfoundland cross laid in the aisle and causes problems getting anywhere,particulaly the alchoholic store,and not having that!!!:RollEyes:

    Indeed have all the same issues although the dog issue is not so great for us as we have a Cocker:Laughing:

    Have a wardrobe at the back of the drivers seat whch blocks the idea of the swivel :Sad:

    Frankie - you are right the Sea New Life is identical, same factory etc I beleive Sea owns Elnagh. I looked at a Sea first but it had been reserved and then they brought down the Elnagh as almost identical and frankly the price was appealing so went for it:thumb::thumb:

    I think like hilldweller says fit a swivel it doesn't have to be the drivers seat it can be the passengers as well my friend has this in his swift 630:thumb:

    Sadly the dinette is behind the passenger seat so can't go down that route, mind you it doesnt stop the enjoyment just thoughts for next MH layout:thumb:

    Got an Elnagh King. Its a German import we have had for just over 2 years.

    Five of us manage to get in it.

    Its in for a service and MOT tomorrow so fingers crossed.
