Hi,

We recently sold our 649 Kon Tiki and are looking at one of these vans on the Iveco chassis. They seem rare, but we are a big family of 5 with bikes and a scooter. I’d like to do away with the trailer and tow bar rack so a big payload and big garage a must.

Any owners or anyone heard of any reviews?

Thanks in advance

Since 1996 we've had Elddis, Swift, Rapido, Rimor, Chausson MHs and Autocruise & Globecar PVCs
That's gonna put a heck of a lot of weight on the rear axle so you might be best looking at tag axle MHs.

We ordered on at the Paris show about ten years ago, spec'd it as RHD, Auto, with Dometic TEC27 Generator, twin air and tow bar

We bought it from a French dealer who is no a friend but sadly retired, and had no issues with it

The UK importer told us that we couldn't get RHD Auto and couldn't have Genny option

Had the van for about 18 months and had no issues with it what so ever, well built van.

The van he is talking about is Iveco twin rear wheel so will have a good payload and rear axle payload.
Our Iveco twin rear wheel is rated 3100kg on the rear and when I weighed it(garage empty) was just over 2200kg.

Ah, I didn't realise it was twin rear wheel, I thought it would be single rear-wheel drive.
