It is a model we will be considering as our next MH. We are on ur second A-T and like the A-T spec and good payload.
You sure about the payload, from the test reviews I've seen it is to say the least minimal.

I'll have to check that John. Normally A-T are very generous and I thought I'd read the same for these new A Classes. I'll have a look though cheers...

...not that there's any rush...we'd quite like to use our current MH tbh


Edited to add: It looks like the smallest has a low payload John but the two 8m+ variants seem reasonable. They only list the MIRO and Overall Weight on their website that I can see so provided they use industry standard MIRO the payloads offered look fine....

GF 70 - MIRO 3270kg - Max Gross Weight 3500 or 2650kg
GF 80 - MIRO 3750kg - Max Gross Weight 4500kg
GF 88 - MIRO 4000kg - Mass Gross Weight 5000kg

As you say the figures for the bigger one does seem good.
I had only seen a review of the smaller one (GF70) when they were first announced and the common theme of the reviewers was, how anyone would cope and stay legal in a van of that size and specification with only 230 Kgs. to spare.
Not seen any tests or reviews for the bigger ones yet.

I agree John - that wouldn't even cover Mrs GMJ's shoe collection!
