    Good evening

    Has anyone crossed on the Conran ferry with a low chassis?

    I used it last year with my Sundance and had no issues but have now changed to a Benimar which is much lower and a bit longer, so a bit worried I might ground out.

    Having had no plans at the time to change the van, I didn't note how much clearance I had, especially when getting off the other side to Onich which seemed the more risky side.

    Popping back up for Easter and may need to use it to get around, it's a long way round if can't and Air ride is not high on the list of things to add just yet.

    Went over last year in our Eddis Autoquest which is low with no problems coming and going and it is 7.3 metres long and a decent overhang.

    We used the Coran regularly when we were on Mull, cheaper that way than paying the Craignure-Oban ferry. We are 10m with long overhang and did have to plan our departure with a higher tide. The last time we left we had been held up by weather cancelations and the tide was lower than I would have preferred, drove on at an angle but the tow bar gouged a grove in the slipway.

    RET, 'road equivalent tariff' came in from last October so the Oban-Craignure ferry is far cheaper than it used to be, under half the price so that could be an option if going to Mull.

    Update.
    Had no issues on the Corran Ferry , so OK there, if anyone needs to know, we crossed to Mull from Lochaline and the cost for a 7mtr van and two occupants £27.20 I think, less than £28 anyway.

    Used the ferry many times as we have friends who live at Strontain. When the tide is out it can be awkward half tide to full no problem
