recommendations for and against IVECO AND MERCEDES motor homes.

Hi All.

I am looking to purchase a motorhome ,I have been doing a lot of looking at IVECO but Mercedes has some how come up as OK.Iveco has the payload i want but mercs are a bit down there. It will be my forever home so i just want some input from those who have either of these. the Luton peak is also a must.

Both Iveco and Merc offer chassis that support 7-8 tonnes and require a LR/MR licence. Actual payload is going to depend on layout and fitout materials of course. That seems to be an issue with many builds whether homebuilt or low end professional, they often use heavier material because it cheaper. There does seem to be a lot more Merc based Moho and campervans is the used market and if that's your arena then that could be the decider. btw New builds stretch to 12 or more due to base vehicle availability. My neighbour has a Paradise Iveco Moho and while it has higher gvm and payload than the Trakka Merc camper we are considering, most of the extra capacity is longer term not everyday storage. That might suit your needs.
