    Having hired a fair few motorhomes over the past 5 years, we finally took the plunge and bought one ! Son does motorsport commentary and the hire costs and/or hotel bills were killing us so we are now the proud owners of a 1996 'leaky' kontiki 640 :Wink:

    So far so good, except for a slight crack in the shower tray which we are scouring the web for solutions to. Seems like hubby has a job to do taking it out and filling underneath unless any of you guys have a better suggestion ?

    Other than that, we road tested it last weekend and had a great time until the leisure battery failed. New one now bought and all is good there :Cool:

    Counting the days until our France trip next year as its big test but hopefully any teething problems will be sorted by then and it's off to the Aires again - yippeee :thumb:

    Hi,
    I have a 97 Kon-tiki 650 which doesn’t leak at present, although there is some evidence that it did in the past. Co-incidentally our leisure battery failed on our first outing. How do they know?

    Anyway welcome to this great club. Lots of help here for a new owner.

    Thanks for the welcome and definitely thx for the shower tray leads. Am guessing we will be on our way to a show very soon, although o'learys think they may have a replacement in stock if we can get the old one out........ Hmmm that is going to be fun - NOT ! :Eek!:
