I brought a brand new Fairford plus with the new 9 speed auto box, tow bar fitted and satellite dish it has covered approx 130 miles so is as new.
I brought it to carry a motorbike but the gvw will not allow it so now it’s for sale.
It is advertised at the dealer I brought it from Morans in Ludlow for £61995.00 if anyone is interested please contact me for a deal.

Thanks John

Could you not increase the weight to 4000k. It should be a straightforward paper exercise and could possibly save you from a substantial financial hit.

Hi unfortunately some of the fiat chassis are now built on the lightweight chassis which only allows an upgrade to 3650kg.
This does suit some people keeping to the 3500gk GVW but not me unfortunately.

Check whether you can have the chassis upgraded - it could just need some spring or shocks changing. SVtech might tell you what is possible.

When you look into it you learn that the wheels are different and the axles are weaker, it seems a stupid thing to do with a vehicle that runs over 3ton all its life.

Looks like its a money saving exercise, I will sell and move on to a more robust vehicle that suits my needs more I know it will be an expensive mistake but life goes on.

Thanks for all the help and comments

Trailer for motorbike? No effect on your vehicle weight, don't have to use it when not using the bike (unlike the towbar bike rack?) probably a safer way to carry bike too?

Trailer can be left behind at a site if you want to use the mh, I could go on

Seems a lot to potentially lose just for a motorbike?

(Sorry, didn't notice previous post saying the same!)
