Apache 600

I have been thinking about a Apache 700, but just found a 2002 600 locally, that sounds good with low miles. The only thing apart from reduction in size is that it only has 2.0l engine, has it got enough power for this size of motorhome?
Thanks

You don't indicate the weight!
My Tracker, 3500Kg, has been over most of the Swiss area passes and over most in Scandinavia with the 84BHP 2.0L engine and no trouble.
However, if the Apache is 4000KG I would be a bit wary depending on where you intend to visit in future.
HTH.

I try and state simple facts in a nice way.

Plenty if you drive sensibly and use the gearbox as it was intended, but it's no pass stormer.

I thought my post was very unbiased, the 2.8Jtd/Hdi is the one to have in the older vans though
EJB and EJB like this.

Thanks for the replys.
Still trying to get to hold of owners view.

Due to the weight the 600 will be below C1 Licence requirement.
Anything in particular I should be checking when I get to view?

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
