    Going from stuttgart to lake bled, was thinking of avoiding go box and tolls
    Planned route on aa route planner for car and it showed 371 miles, that's ok I thought
    Just planned it on tom tom with motorhome dimensions and it's coming back at 475 miles!,
    Is there a good route down for a swift kontiki 679?
    Or do I just bite the bullett and get a go box

    Can't help that much with your route as we did Calais to Lake Bled last year, we went via Munich and would recommend the Aire at Bayern Munich's stadium ideal for visiting the city.

    Having paid 100 € for the privilege of carrying around a twee little orange and white box around Austria and then finding out on the way home there is no where within 20 miles of the border I would suggest you just buy a small plastic orange coloured box and velcro that in the windscreen !!

    The whole time we drove around it beeped about 4 times.. We simply avoided the motorways and witnessed some of the best sights we have ever seen in Austria (y)

    Oh and in case you are wondering, that helpful tip came from an Austrian plod who actually LAUGHED when I told him I had a go box as the van is 5.25 tonnes.
    His words were.. You British, you do love to obey all the rules .. and the laughed again !!!!
