Hey all,
Is there anyone here with any experience of the Chieftain G. We've decided it's the right next van for us, & would love any info good or bad please?

Cheers, Creaky:thumb:

I have never owned the Chieftan but we had the Arapaho which is the same except we had a U shaped lounge where the G's bed will be. The build quality of the interiors and the tag axle chassis are great. I think that payloads are well in excess of 1.25 ton which beats many USRVs! An excellent choice of motorhome IMO :thumb:

Intreasting post foe me as we have been thinking of changing our Hymer and we have though of an Arapaho. But we can not afford a new on so it would have to be a 2 year old one on the 2.8 Fiat.

What do they drive like when loaded, do they need remapping to get up the hils ok?

We currently have a 2007, 130 BHP Transit and it can realy fly along, last week we went over the A66 East bound and never dropped below 60 MPH and were never out of top gear. I would think the big Arapaho would be struggling a fair bit?

Our Arapaho would took us on couple 3000 mile round trips, fully laden, towing a trailer and 75kg of canoes on the roof, honestly it would fly along. Loads of power and a massive payload that you can use without detriment. :thumb:
