15 years of VW T 'ing
There is defiantly a bit of a "Donald" on topSeen a few new Crafters; they do look like a great base vehicle for "hybrid" motorhomes especially if they do a 4x4 one.
However real men don't need a bog, a poncy bathroom or a Trump style hairdo on the top of their vans.
I've been observing motorhomes here; they are much more popular than they are in the U.K; as you say most are Fiat Ducato based, 130bhp and FWD with 15" wheels; while I'm no fan of silly sized wheels, you need a certain size to have proper brakes; these vast motorhomes are wheezing up and down hills with no power or brakes; frightening. Even posh Hymers are often Fiat based.Looks like it may be confirmed as a "go-er" in the next couple of weeks or so.
We will have to see, but the VW badge will go down well in a predominately Fiat Ducato market place.
Well Spotted, that makes sence; and a new word for the oxford english dictionary "SPrafter": a unholy alliance from a collaboration forged in hell (or Wolfsburg/Stuttgart), and where proper rust proofing was completely dispensed with,Think the issue is that the Sprafter isn't wide enough for a transverse bed so they've raised the roof to put one up top
