    Hi,, does any one have any knowledge of Laika A class motor homes of the late 90s . May go and view one on a iveco chassis. Would you think it will be well insulated and any ideas of reliability of Ivecos with 2.8 engine. Thanks...BUSBY...

    Iveco are ultra reliable so long as you keep them oiled and watered (y)-Laikia well screwed together (y)-although some are dark :(All in all not a bad thing but requires all the usual checks :)

    We bought a 2003 Laika A class just before Christmas and we have only been out a few times so far, but have to say we're more than happy with it...
    Ours is on the Fiat though...

    We had a 2002 Laika 100 ecovip on the Iveco 2.8 (4.2 tonne). Well built inside although outside flaps for fuel/water/locker were a bit flimsy but I would have modded them had we kept it. As said above - kept it oiled and watered and it was fine although more like driving a truck than the Fiats we have had.

    We have a Fiat based 2001 Laika Ecovip 7r it's a great bit of Italian engineering. Well insulated, well built, would recommend a Laika to anyone. (y)

    Our previous motorhome was a Laika Ecovip 400i 2001 plate, Iveco 2.8 chassis. Lovely van very well built, and very reliable. As previously said it was more like driving a truck but as its on a Iveco chassis thats what it is ! And again needs to be used as if left idle the gears stiffened, but drove like a dream however.
