Bombard Aerotech 380 or Ribeye TS370

Hello all,

I've recently bought a caravan and want to be able to take a boat with me.

I've looked at the various Sib options and concluded that the Aerotech 380 looks like a really good bet based on its low weight. Are there any other options?

Also wondered if i could put a rib such as a Ribeye TS370 (64kg) on the car roof Merc GL does anybody have experience of transporting mini ribs on the car, is it practical/realistic? could I maintain 60mph safely for up to 5 hours?

Any ideas or suggestions would be great.

That looks better than the Aerotech or the Ribeye?

Which will be the most fun?

All are very different craft, lots of opinions/reviews on here from different owners but you'd really need to try them to see what suits you best and narrow down your needs and priorities to see which offers the best compromise. Transporting on the roof (done right) is easy and works well depending on the suitability of the car of course.

I used to put my Aerotec in my caravan. Folded up in its bag I could just get it through the door and lay it down over the axle.
Towed the caravan to France with the Aerotec inside with no problems on many occasions
