    :thumb: Hi
    After 20 years of caravaning we went to visit the NEC ( for the first time!) and have bought a motor home which we take ownership in JUne....4 months and counting:Eeek:
    Am going to book myself into a manorovering course as I am a bit nervous about driving . Will log on to this forum to get info from fellow campers...roll on summer

    congratulations and welcome to the fun.....

    just out of interest...why 4 months, it sounds an awful long time, is it being specially built to order?

    Thanks for welcome

    :BigGrin:
    We've ordered a swift Kontiki 669 and its due off end of May and we have asked for a towbar and satelitte fitted by the dealer hence the wait.
    Can i ask how easy is it to tow with an A frame?


    sandils:thanks:

    Hi ans welcome
    A kontiki will be quite difficult to tow with an A frame. I suggest you use the kon tiki to tow a smmall car :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    just joking have a great time and i,m sure you will love the new van. the kontiki marque has been going about 2o yrs or more and it a well tried and trusted design. It has stood the tests of time and kept up with the modern design concepts.
