    I have been researching Euramobil vans and in Particular the Activa 770 and possibly an Integra 810. They seem thin on the ground but so does a decent used Kontiki.

    I gather they are a quality van and may even be Barry proof. What I need to know is the payload that will be available. I will of course want to fit a scooter rack and quite possibly a new heavier scooter on the back. Its an Alko Chassis so I am guessing Armitage Trailers will be able to fit the same rack that they did on the Kontiki. Even though its a tag axles there is quite a long overhang which makes a big difference on the calculations for the rack.

    So questions are. What is the available user payload of both of these vans

    Are they as good as they are cracked up to be

    Are they difficult to get bits for or serviced.

    Anything I need to be wary about.

    There are only 3 770's for sale on Ebay and no 810's. None of them are near to me for a look round. Im in no hurry but at last it does look like I might have found a replacement for the Kontiki should a good one near to me come up.

    I had a Eura 770HS and it was brilliant. No idea on spares as it never needed any. It had over 1,000KG payload but I was flying solo so that probably allowed a little extra. Very nice to drive and very stable due to it being a tag possibly?

    It was very well thought out internally and nothing about the internal layout bugged me except for perhaps the towel rail above the toilet.

    If you have any questions about the HS please feel free.

    Thanks for the replies chaps. Sorry Loddy but I suspect MPG may be an issue.

    The two on ebay dont have a rear lounge which is essential Im afraid.

    Im not in a hurry though. Now I know they are good vans I will try and get a look at one when one comes up near us

    You could call it Hank the Yank
