For approximately 18months i have been exploring the world of Motorhomes, intending to purchase a used vehicle when i find the right van. I have been looking at sub 6m vehicles, both low profiles and van conversions. Recently i have seen a Dethleffs Fortero 5975 advertised for sale but have not as yet viewed it due to it being some distance away. I would be interested in the views and opinions of anyone who has experience of Dethleffs, in particular this model or any of the similar low profiles that they produce. (they seem to produce quite few!) Most of thier similar sized low profiles based on the Ford Transit (Globevan, Summer Edition and other Fortero Models) all share the same shorter wheelbase of the Ford Transit. However the Fortero 5975, although having the same overall vehicle length as the previously mentioned models (5.9m), uses a slightly longer wheelbase, resulting in a shorter overhang beyond the rear wheels and hence a smaller garage based in this area. As it appears to be thier only model of this length on the slightly longer wheelbase i wonder if there are some negatives that resulted in the shorter wheelbase being preffered on all thier other models. The only other obvious difference i can find between the Fortero and the other similar models is that the Fortero is listed as 2.26m wide as apposed to 2.15m wide for the globevan. Is this width difference really noticeable in real terms? I would appreciate any remarks, comments or advice from all you knowledgeable people out there. Thanks for your time.
