    Kon-Tiki tag 8.5m, 9.0 with bike carrier. Decent payload and no need of steadies.

    Had 1 got rid of it as traction very poor. Could not set off at a T junction going uphill, just got wheel spin and this was in the dry.

    Could not get traction on wet grass on the flat.

    Now got RWD twin wheels never had a traction problem.

    How very strange never had any traction problems with ours.:rolleyes:
    Use M+ S tyres all year around wild camp, park on grass even when wet, use it in the Alps in winter, if snow really bad will put chains on but always surprised where it will go.:cool:

    We have a Kon-Tiki 669, tow a Smart car on a trailer and never had any problems as yet. Traction is fine, and the length has not caused any major issues on sites. 8.57m The trailer adds another 3 metres.
    Had the Iveco 3 litre engine re-mapped to 200bhp, tramps on at silly speeds if you want it to, but the low end torque is why I had it done............and before all you guys criticise me for not saving the planet, it still does about 25 - 28mpg! :)
