    We bought a new sprite major 6 in 2012. Just had its second service and there is 60% damp at the front end?this is so problem for us to return our van for repair as it’s on a seasonal pitch with a full awning .

      I also purchased a Sprite major 6 TD in July 2013 took it back to the dealers in july 2014 for its first service and very disturbed to hear that on the off side by the toilet there is 20% damp.
      This is not good as it is stored in doors and has only been used for 20 days since purchase . so all the other time it has been stored in doors.

      the service centre said ” bring it back in January 2015 and if the damp has got worse we will then be able to have a look , but we cannot do anything until it reaches 25%.”

      sorry this is a new van that has only been exposed to the elements for 20 days, from the day of collection.

      has anybody experienced damp in a new sprite major 6 TD.

    Hi Steve, we have a 2005 Kia Sorento 2.5lt Diesel, tows like a dream.
    use to tow it with a Mazda 6 2.2lt, but was very unstable, hence the Kia, feel really safe towing now.

  3. Steve says:

    Alistair, can I ask what your tow car is. I’m looking to buy the same van,we are kind of down sizing from our Elddis Crusader as the cost of towing it especially with the price of petrol is getting horrendous. We will be down sizing our car as well as we won’t need to run a range rover any more as the difference in weight between the two vans is a lot….comments welcome….cheers.

      Hi Steve,

      We published an article on the SsangYong tow car a few months back – some of the comments that came through may be useful to you. Click here and scroll down to take a look.

    I have owned the new 2012 Sprite M6, for around 3 months now, took a bit of getting used to the length, as my old Bailey van was 10ft shorter, would advise having an ATC fitted, as 24ft on a single axle can be a bit unsteady, make sure your weights, and tyre pressure are correct, however very pleased overall with the van, have had a few problems within this time, the minor ones, speaker grill inside was rusty, lock barrels breaking, thou have been replaced foc as you would expect. However two major ones in my opinion, front window is going to be replaced as fracture cracks have formed along the whole of the bottom edge, this has stemed from the screws in the window levers been done to tight during manufacturer, another recent problem fridge light got stuck on resulting in internal lense melting and fridge not getting cold, have disconnected this while waiting whole fridge replacement under warrenty. Storage great, beds great, looks great, overal very pleased with purchase. comments and questions welcome

    Just keeping you on your toes guys!

    It is indeed the wrong floorplan, not sure how that happened but have changed it to the correct one now.

    Thanks for letting us know,

    It would be useful if the floor plan matched the photos, which is right?

    Think you are showing the wrong layout plan?
