    Weight issues....
    Reading the current spec on this van they rate it as 3500kg with 500kg payload... That's not a lot for a so called 6 berth van, especially as their advert say there is no allowance to carry water and advise to travel empty !!
    If the one you are buying is over 3500kg then make sure your license covers it..l

    Hello and welcome. Hope you enjoy the hire van and then the fun begins. For any specific question re weight or teccy stuff it's best to repost in the other sections, you should get better responses to your questions.

    :welc: Hi TinyTony

    That's how we started - hiring a motorhome in NZ for three weeks. Hopefully will give you a bit of an idea as to the layout you might like to end up with, plus a general feeling for the lifestyle. :D

    Hi @TINYTONY. Are you sure you want something that big if there's only two of you? I have a 165 and it's perfectly adequate for the two of us (Great 'van by the way)

    That big bulb at the front will cost you in terms of economy if you don't need it. AND, you'll notice the difference in the wind too!

    Have a great time in your hire van.
    James

    Hi TT, above is sensible thought, we are only a couple and went for the DEVON TEMPEST.
    Had no problem since the initial purchase but that was down to a bad dealer. You can read my review on the Dealer Review page of this site I would also recommend that you read the book written by Jim and available from Fun M. Remember dealers want your dosh so BEWARE
