Vapour 101 camper

If the gooseneck has any significant weight to it then I thought they were / should be designed to transfer a significant portion of the weight onto the tractor unit so that it actual gets some traction.

You'd probably find that without a second axle that there'd be too much for a single axle to take weight wise.

Beat me too it, I am sure it is weight related.

Personal choice of course, I've just seen a USA person enthuse over a S3 based fire engine with a rigid roof, on the basis it would make a good camper.

My reminder is that any LR with a chassis underneath will have a very high floor.

If any adult user is near to standard height, and never wishes to stand up, then there will be no problem; otherwise life will seem a little cramped.

Regards.

IMO they're not going to be much, if any, higher up than most motorhomes and conversions. But in all cases, the spaces under the floor can be used for tanks etc.

@Escape you don't need all that to get your Lotus to a track...

I can't bring myself to not like that, such a simple solution!
But I certainly don't want to be the one who has to drive the racer on there. Or drive the Series at anything but low gear and on the flattest and straightest road possible!

I once drove a 110 with an estimated 400kg of scaffolding on the roofrack and that was all but comfortable. For the record, the son of the boss had loaded it and then handed me the keys to drive it from the site to the warehouse, about 40km.

To be fair, that car probably only weighs 300Kg...

Yes, but a Series1 isn't that heavy either (ca 1200kg?) so there's a considerable part of the total weight high up.
