You're absolutely right re Cars Geoff, and bikes of course, the unsprung weight thing is a great positive, but I think the suspension itself can be lightened too, removing even more weight.

Most trucks these days that carry weight such as bulk carriers have alloy wheels but this is to save overall weight, I don't think they worry about looks or handling.

Well, we've got the Twin 600 SP and its brilliant. Its a 2016 with 13k miles one owner and pretty much mint condition. I think we've got lucky and bought it well but it took some searching and bargaining .Quite a step up from our history with multiple VW vans. The alloys look great and were a relatively cheap change as we stayed with the 15 inch size swapping on the original tyres. We've ordered the new Kenwood Android type double din Stereo / Nav/ Rear View Camera system for Friday this week. Its having a set of Thule Roof rails and a high rack mid month and the solar / TV guys are checking it all out tonite.
We've been looking at the Avtex pro TV or the Apple TV but think the Avtex will be better in the real world as long as we can use an adaptor to get internet based TV to supplement the digital free stuff.
Some little tweaks to do to add 12v outlets for my extra portable Dometic compressor fridge inside and out and some extract fans to help the Thetford absorption type fridge when its hot. We also need a couple of USB points in the bed area for charging all the tech stuff we seem to have.Got to get a new gas supply pipe and connection for the CADAC rather than my old close coupled bottle.
I have also bought an awning wind break panel and end panel together with a centre brace and tie downs for windy days, drew the line at the Thule telescopic ladder ...going to use a e bay sourced 2.3 meter one with a simple magnetic support I can easily engineer at 1/3 of the cost all in ....
So happy with it .

not sure about the bolt pattern but the wheel supplier should know that


barry
In 2014 Fiat introduced 16" wheels with 5x118 spacing as an option on the Light Chassis [as opposed to the Heavy chassis which has 5x130 spacing].
