it is a bit of a big beast for sure
i think the chassis is an alko maxi chassis or something like that, it has 6 wheels and is tag axle
the engine is the 2.8 td one and is around 175hp, it has been chipped and has modified intercooler etc
i am told it will cruise nicely at around 80 if it needs to in europe
it will hold its own against smaller motorhomes but tend not to race around as bits go flying everywhere, plates, cups, etc etc
it does handle nicely (or not as bad as you would think!!) for the size thanks to the chassis and tag axles at the back and works well on windy days etc as is quite stable
300 td hp pusher would be nicer
here is the model
ps they are plated to 5.2T on the motorhome outside and 5.5T on the chassis!
