    We have just collected our Wildax Constellation from the makers in Elland after waiting since we ordered it in Febuary. We sold our Burstner in April as we didn't want to end up having trouble selling it now. I didn't realise how much i would miss the van all through the summer months. We love the Wildax and can't wait to get away in it. Any one know of the Wildax Owners club and the address to join.

    Hi.
    Go onto the "Wildax" web page,and i think there is a reference to "Wildax owners club",then it should be straightforward.
    However!!
    If this fails,and before you can get you the correct people,i may have been able to give you proper connections. We have a Wildax Europa........ Love it.

    We have had our Constellation for 5 years now, and have been extremely pleased with it. Also members of the owners group and have attended some of the meets they have, really good to meet other owners, hopefully we may meet you at some time.

    Hi.
    Love it to bits,our first unit was a Timberland Endeavour,on a Renault Master with the big lump in it,the Renault bit was superb,but lots of hassle with the rest. This was traded in for an Autosleeper Broadway,(EK?),on a Peugeot........ That went away quick,enter Wildax Europa,Renault Master proper..Inside ,really well put together back up from ALL at Elland faultless.When it was coming near to the delivery date,we had to get across to Portugal quickly,Duncan arranged to have it ready at short notice,but in doing so,said the proper GPL tank had not arrived,would we accept the smaller Gpl tank to get on with and he would fit the bigger one,"Whenever"LOL, we were back in England. This year,a year later,we let them know we were coming,it was booked in to suit us,tanks changed over,it disappeared for a few moments and came back with a full tank of Gpl.
    Only one fault.For years my mantra was, " There is no substitute for power!". My spurs have been hung up a few years now,and the first wife has endured miles/hours,of white knuckle trips around,so,against ALL my inner voices/intuition,i let her sway me into speccing the 130 engine. There is nothing wrong with this lump,..really..it scoots along easily at French motorway speeds,(And above),it is when i challenge our,"Continental Cousins" in their Artics fully freighted in the Pyrenees that i wish i had not given in to the fact.... How did she put it?. Oh yes," You don't have anymore deliveries for Yesterday,plus you are one of the O'er 'till mob now, (Old Fart to you)" And had the 150!! Have another ? At the drop of a hat,it really is very nice,thanks to all at Elland.
    Tea Bag (Capain to engine room...MORE POWER...)
    PS. To be honest,when fighting for first place on the Pyrenees with a Continental Cousin and we are eyeball to eyeball,i sneak a quick look on the cab as to what lump he's got under the bonnet........ 500 PLUS !!!! WHAT!!,so the 150 might have been,"Game on" as well. Stay well,stay lucky

    Just tweeted them on a glaring spelling error repeated several times on their website! Sad I know but otherwise the MHs look OK apart from the awful fake wood finish on some of the models. But they aren't the only ones guilty of that. :)

    Hi Tea bag, I picked my Constellation up at the weekend and the hand over by Danny was excellent , It is reassuring to hear all the good reports about Wildax.

    Hope you enjoy the new van and I totally understand how you felt about missing van, our new one has been on order since July when we sold the last one and it's like missing a limb

    We don't have an exact date just a rough one being the beginning to middle of December, they have told me I will get a delivery date this month.

    It would be nice to have it for Xmas so we can get away for a few days, if it's a few weeks late though I won't get to upset.
    I have it booked in with Eddie at Vanbitz for alarm, solar panel and other accessories for the middle of December so here's hoping I don't need to change the date.

    It won't be long now then , you'll never know until it's here! We are going to Devon for Xmas and New Year in the van. Are you going to stay down at Eddie vanbits for a few days after your van has been fitted out. Incidentally what sort of van have you got.

    We went up to Wildax in Elland last week when they had an open day to have a look at the Solaris XL - We really have fell in love with it, the kit that comes with it as standard is superb - just gotta start saving now as there is a 8 months waiting period :cry::cry:

    We have bought a Globecar/Possl Roadcruiser, we have bought it in Germnay so my plan is pick it up drive to Eddies and stay the night he does the work then drive home the next day as it will be on export plates until we register it with DVLA but thought it would be easier to pop into Eddie on way home to save a drive back down from Scotland.

    We've had our WildAx Aurora for 3 years now and love it!
    There is a WildAx Owners Facebook Group.
    I can't get on the Owners Group for some reason - I was on it but now my computer won't play nice . So now I use the Facebook Group.

    Very nice the Globecar gets very good reviews in the press, you will. Have saved a lot of money by buying it in Germany also. Hope it all goes well for you!
