    Hi

    We've had our trigano tribute 550 for two months and have already blown the electrics...:cry:

    So u have to be careful how much power u have on...
    This is our first motorhome so we're completly dumb..:RollEyes:
    The loo is a bit tight so my hubby is gonna have to watch his belly size!!:Rofl1:

    Been past Malcs 2 Tributes in there possibly yours being got ready at the front. They are a super looking Van. Malc is a lovely bloke and more importantly a Motorhomer himself. My only issue with the Tribute is some of the poor quality products used but no doubt Malc will see you OK. Hope to see you driving about the Potteries. Tell him Dave no roof says hello.:Rofl1:

    I did a feature on the 650 here, which has a few comments in the editorial.

    There have been some owner comments about the cab seating being rather high and furniture not being too robust, plus the issue of water getting into the engine bay (lots of comments on the forums about that!).

    Overall the 650 looks good, both asthetically and as value for money. Hope you do well with it !

    thank u

    Hi

    I,ve found that the screws in everything are really short....and things keep falling apart and we've only just got it...
    We use ours as our car which works really well...
    I think for the money I paid compared to other van conversions is really quite good and u can put up with the little things ...
    We are both 6ft plus and we have no probs with the seats although we sleep with our feet on the cab seats.
    Just wish the bathroom was a tad bigger!! hubby needs to loose his belly!!!
