    Think the twin wheels on the back of the Merc makes the difference, think our single wheel Hymer could struggle.

    For those of us who go to the Alps skiing thats a regular occurence. My tag axle front wheel drive Hymer never ceases to amaze me where it'll go. Do have winter tyres and do carry chains but very rarely need to put them on. Twice I think in 10 years and we've been in some tricky situations. :xThumb:

    Respect all round to you snow mohos. I don't think I would risk it - in a car yes, not in the van! I once bottomed a Triumph Spitfire on snow driving in someone's tyre tracks in North Yorks. the wheels were off the ground. The Mother's Pride van men pushed me all the way (1/4 mile) to the A1!

    I got stuck in a car a couple of winters ago as I was following the snow plough coming back from a hospital appointment. Didn't realise the snow plough had given up ploughing due to depth of snow....... I did manage to push the car off so the wheels were back on the ground and then had to reverse for over a mile.

    These days I am a wimp and tend not to go out at all in bad weather - mind my definition of bad weather might differ from yours. Bad weather is when you can't see the car because of the snow.
