Yes, Rob, we have an addiction . We also have a 1968 Volkswagen pickup (camion) and a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle . The pickup needs repair to run. We hope to pull the camper with the pickup.

Rob, do you know Babelfish? http://babelfish.altavista.com/ You can enter words or web pages and select the language to translate.

Rob,
I'm the husband of Cindy L. and thought I would briefly join the conversation. You asked if we pull the trailer with the Eurovan. Yes, we do, and it pulls very well. We had no problems even in the mountains at Yellowstone Park in Wyoming. The Eurovan also has a large back seat that folds down into a full size bed with very comfortable foam for the mattress. So, we could sleep two adults in the Burro camper and two adults in the Eurovan. Hope this helps!

Kevin

Yes, Rob, we have an addional bed in the Eurovan. We first looked at how to make the Eurovan into a camper but decided to buy a trailer instead.

We also have a 1968 Volkswagen pickup (camion) and a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle . The pickup needs repair to run. We hope to pull the camper with the pickup.

Rob, do you know Babelfish? http://babelfish.altavista.com/ You can enter words or web pages and select the language to translate.

Dear Cindy, you are a very fan of the old Volkswagen's car...
The beetle is very beautiful.... The italian's name is "Maggiolone"

You have made much good to buy the caravan, why it is like one house. the minivan alone they do not give the same emotions

...and then the caravan it is the much most comfortable one...

Thank's for the Babelfish's link... but the translation is often "pittoresca"... hehehe!!!

That is a fascinating piece of machinery! I would be interested in more information. Rob, I do not want to clutter this forum with details, so I won't ask for much description, but if you know the name of this design could you tell us? Or perhaps one of our other European members knows?

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Ciao Brian,
This is one stabilizing of the AL-KO much old one. It is not much practical one to install, but it works very better than those modern ones.
Questo uno stabilizzatore della AL-KO molto vecchio.
Non molto pratico da installare, per funziona molto meglio di quelli moderni.

Rob,

worry not about your translation. We are all using Babelfish, and reading back the italian I did for you, when converted BACK to english.. it is very funny.

We understand the bulk, and if a word or two are humourous, we enjoy anyway.
