Hi all
Currently considering the purchase of a new eco tourer off road with ensuite, don't plan to take it where very serious 4x4 off roader's go, but do plan to take it to areas which a capable softroader will go (land rover freelander2 sd4 diesel 140kw & 420nm torque) Has anybody out there got one and what is there opinion of them the ecotourer that is not the landie. Plan to use the van for a 11month circuit just 2 of us.

Cheers TerryM

I have one and have taken it thru many dirt roads, some good and some real shockers. Technically it is an "Off Highway". They are around 2,000kg loaded, 200kg on the ball so make sure your vehicle can handle it.
For more info go to Yahoo Ecotourer Group

I liked the look of them and gave them serious consideration.
The only negative comment I heard was from an owner, he said definately get a roof vent as airflow in warm weather can be an issue.
Apparently it can get a bit stiffling down the bed end. Other wise, they raved about it.

So far so good nobody has come back with bad reports, thought they might of, as the eco tourer is made in China, not sure if it is assembled there though.
Did hear that the Chinese tyres were rubbish, but that is easily fixable, no buy until known brand suitable tyres are fitted.
