    Hi All,
    Recently joined group and will be looking forward to getting involved.
    We have a Renault Trafic Autosleeper at the moment,but are possibly looking to up-grade to a coachbuilt unit with toilet and shower,cooker etc.
    We go to festivals (rock,metal etc) and need to have our own washing/toilet facilities as site ones are "not good"
    As said unit is Renault Trafic 1995 2.1 dieseland we have had it over 2 years,never let us down,started first time,every time.Cruises along at 55/70 mph quite easily.
    Going to upgrade to unit with power steering as wife now wants to be able to drive,so swb coachbuilt unit could be on the cards.
    Anyone out there have a 19/20ft unit?what are they like to drive in windy conditions?

    Hi and welcome.
    I sold my motorhome in the summer ( downsizing) I think that was about 19 feet. Think you call it low profile as it didn't have over cab bed. I'd no problems driving it and the first time I got off the ferry in Calais it was blowing a storm. I thought as long as lorries were still on the road I should be ok. And if it gets too bad, park up and put the kettle on.
