    A class v coach built



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Just looking for opinions on A class v coach built.
    Like everything else there will be advantages and disadvantages, some like cost are obvious.

    I have always fancied an A class and I am thinking on the new Roller Team Pegaso 590 just out in September. Itís the only A class done to British spec under 6m, the spec looks impressive.

    All opinions welcome

    Cheers

    If we all agreed there would be no discussion, and it would be a dull boring world.

    I do like the idea of A Class as well

    However is it under 3500kg and what is the payload..

    If both are good then yes

    However we prefer a fixed bed

    Cannot be Ars** with fussing with the bed every night for 5 months (which is our usage)

    It’s under 3500kg, payload 650kg and the bed is made up.
    All you do is fold down cab seats and pull down bed and your done, and because the bed is brought down from above the cab, you still have the use of the lounge.
    I timed myself and it took 45 seconds to set up bed.

    I like it, except it is a FART and the auto box is another Gnome under the bonnet. The lack of fixed beds makes it short and much lighter. For two people and maybe a kid.
    THE HAB DOOR IS CORRECT SIDE and there is a DRIVERS DOOR for the DRIVER.

    Thatís a nice wee van very impressed wae the layout think the difference is being able to utilise the front seats properly and most a classes are a wee bit wider usually with a decent size garage under back full time bed my vans nine meters and that wee roller team van has just as much lounge area great layout for a couple.

    Bavaria have a nice range of smaller A Class and Coachbuilts.

    Despite their name, they are a French company.

    Looked at the 1600L, but with the engine upgrades I want and extras itís over £10,000 more expensive.
    Also it is not set up for our roads, but nice looking van.

    What on earth is British Spec .. Sounds like something a Salesman would come up with. You don't want one of them foreign vans ours are British Spec.

    Read up well on Roller Team. I know of two vans that have had to go back to Grimsby to have a whole side panel replaced due to warping. One of these people is a friend of mine whose van is under one year old and is a coachbuilt. It is going back in the next few weeks. The other is a member of the motorhomecraic forum whose van is just back. Type Ďback to the factoryí into their search facility. To be fair, Roller Team have held their hands up with a bit of encouragement of threats of trading standards.

    I suppose though most marques of vans will have faults to entertain us, but whole side replacement and of 2 vans in a small place like N.Ireland and a low volume manufacturer is a bit concerning.

    One of the biggest influences in my choice of van irrespective of A class or coachbuilt was to look around and see which brands had numerous quite old vans still in use. I chose Hymer.
