On RV point, quoted as a 17'6", which is a common mistake.

It's a bit hard to tell, but it looks very like my 16 footer.

Have you changed your van Willie?

If so what did you get?

Have you been getting my email Progress Reports?

I am keeping the 16' van, but getting the new upgraded 200 diesel. I am waiting for the dollar to go up a bit more, to bring the price down.

I saw you photos and it looks very nice.

You'll love the 200 Willie.

My 20' van came out with a tare (dry weight) of 2660kg and it tows beautifully behind my 200.

May I suggest you resist the urge to upgrade the suspension and just put in Polyair bags. I put in the OME 200kg springs (lifted the vehicle 80mm) and it complicated things when it came to choosing the corect Reese hitch.

I just have a standard AT-35 hitch and do not use those weight distribution arms. Will I still have these problems you speak of when I put in the HD suspension ?

My current 100TD has airbags and ARB HD suspension and I like the setup.

Did you get that new KDS (?) suspension option on the car ? I was thinking of giving it a miss as I am happy with what I have now on the 100.

Yes, I got the KDSS. I would recommend that, it's great ON and OFF road.

The issue was lifting the suspension caused me to have to buy a special 150mm offset hitch to get the towball down to the same height above the ground as the std suspension.

WDH may not be necessary with a 16' van. I didn't use it with my Trakmaster but our friends do with their 16' Trakkie and they reckon it's pretty good.

Personal choice, I reckon.
