Hi,
My wife Louise and I have recently acquired a new Tischer 260 RS from Nolan who has been wonderful during the planning process. We previously had an 8.8 m Concorde which we used for four years but realised that getting away from it all was less difficult and some of the roads in Andalucia last year were very narrow which made travelling down them pretty difficult.
We prefer to wild camp when possible and there are some beautiful spots all over Europe which have not been overpopulated by the dramatic increase in Motorhomes .
So we have gone from nearly 9 m to 4m plus bed!
We have 100kg left on rear axle as loaded in the picture. Air suspension next
Thanks

We have a Defender 130 double cab HCPU which we are currently having to air up as the Tischer is a tad heavy with the extras on it. We looked at many campers but eventually liked the options that Tischer offered such as the North / South enormous double bed and the option of diesel Truma heater. We have decided to go 12 v, solar and diesel with just a refillable gas bottle for cooking and BBQ . We experienced difficulty in obtaining gas in Southern Spain and in the UK BP have removed all their Autogas pumps in our area dure to lack of demand.
We see the demountable as the ideal solution to the caravan / Motorhome debacle that many people go through allowing use of Aires all over Europe as in a Motorhome but transport if pitched on a campsite like a caravan. Having just returned from an RV trip in America demountables are everywhere but loaded on to very large twin wheel pickups to comply with the payload .
We will let you know how we get on once we have the unit and vehicle ready for a winter trip to Austria.

Hi Richard and Louise

Interesting story, and typical of the ways people get into demountable campers. Welcome to the group, we all started somewhere and there's now several hundred years of demountable experience in the group. If you have questions, ask away. Conversely, if you've worked out your own ways of doing things, there'll always be somebody else who might benefit from your experiences.

Try and get to our next big meet-up. Richard will be on later to fill you in.

Kind regards, K33F

Yes any ideas you've had (usually space saving are most popular) and there will be something over Summer though not sure where or even when right now

I'm Northampton in fact myself which only reinforces a misplaced belief its truly a good idea :)

Hello and Welcome. Great looking setup you have there. I have an S.Karosser presently but the Tischer Trail will be my next demountable.

Hi Richard and Louise

Welcome, certainly very nice Tischer.

We have a new Tischer 240 Box ourselves from Nolan, our third demountable from him and very pleased with it.

Your Tischer 260 looks great and on my wish list one day:)
