It looks good Ian, I assume they are your new tyres on the Mazda? Just a bit more fiddling to keep you occupied!!

When I went to pick it up from the dealer and saw the size, I wanted our old Swan back. Of course weight is the worry, its a bit unfair there, as our vehicle rego was incorrectly filled out as a CVM of 6500kg, but it is only 6000kg, lost half a tonne just like that.

Its a odd build, with recliner arm chairs in the front. Very comfortable. Getting more confident with towing and backing.

If I won tats would I buy another that size - never. Note no WDH, tows well, rigs is sitting nice and level. Solar power is an issue ATM with alarms going off at night. Hopping my Tutors on the forum will help sort it out.

Hi Ian , it looks a tad down on the ball in the pic , with that much weight on the ball ( a guess of 260ish) I'd definitely be fitting a weight hitch . apart from that congrats on the new van looks a treat .
