Hi all
New to the forum.
Just need advice on tow ability of the sprite swing.
I currently have a Gypsey Royale 1996 which is a bit big for us at the moment, I would like something smaller that tows and handles easier. Want a island bed with 3/4 bed or dubble bed.
I would just like to know how much easier the Sprite Swing will tow. Also looking at the Gypsey Romany.
Heard it tows very easy and very stable, how much better is it than the big Gypsey Royale?
Any in put from experienced people will be appreciated

Welcome Jaco.
As i do not know the Royale, can you first inform the size, weight and hight of the Royale and Is it also a drop-top caravan.
The size of the wheells can also make a difference. 13" vs 14" in handling.

There must be someone else who knows better than me. This is my thoughts.
I love camping all year round

Ek dink dat die Swing oor die die algemene n lekker karavaan is om te sleep....hoor selde dat mense kla oor "issues"

Jaco

Welkom. Ek het n 2007 Sprite Swing. Hom gesleep met Hilux 2.5D DC en Xtracab (ook 2.5D) Sleep soos n droom. Moes 2 jaar terug noodgedwonge ander sleep voertuig aanskaf en het n Suzuki Grand Vitara gekoop. 2.4lt Petrol 225Nm torque. Ja dit was n aanpassing van n Bakkie na n SUV, maar nadat ons mekaar begin verstaan het, sleep die Suzi hom n hond uit n bos uit. Het Desember met my seun se kar gesleep. Hyundai iX35 diesel. Net so lekker gesleep. En glo my, my vrou kan daai wa pak. As ek nie keer nie sal sy die sitkamerstel ook inpak.

Ek kan niks oor die ander waens se nie aangesien ek hulle nog nooit gesleep het nie.

At last !!!!
