Hiya Buying an F35 pro Fiamma roll out canopy and wondered if someone can confirm the correct Fiamma brackets required to fit the Bongo please?

Re: Small trailer or rear mounted Storage box

All iam looking for is somewhere to stow the likes of a drive away awning and some smaller camping equipment outside the veh...

Re: Bike racks

Hi guys. Sorry if this has been covered somewhere - I didn't find it in a search. Is there such a thing as a bicycle rack that fits to the back of the Bongo and allows you to still open the tail gate? Only need to carry 1 bike, or 2 at the most As 'Muzorewa' says you can fit quite easily either the...

Re: More shuddering

Hi Bongonauts I wonder if anyone can guess at a problem I have with my Bongo? I'm getting feedback through the steering wheel, but the curious thing is that it's only intermittent. It's not the tyres, these are the correct sizes as recommended by this site. When I'm driving the steering feels a bit...

Re: The spare wheel issue

Pretty certain you'll have no probs fitting full size wheel in the space, although you may need to bend the bracket nearest the rear axle slightly. If you need me to pick up a wheel from Kevin at Southern Bongos let me know. If you're going to the Looe meet I could always bring it along. I do have ...

Re: The spare wheel issue

I've noticed the same problem having done some recent investigation. The size looks to a close match for Citroen 2CV, but I doubt you'd find suitable load rating! Certain Mazda 6's also used the same tyre, so that may be another avenue to explore. I did view a Mazda 6 spacesaver that someone was se...

Re: 3,000 mile trip round Europe....

We are hoping to do a similar trip next year - maybe drive down through France and into Spain and keep going. Or we may do the 1,600 mile round trip to our holiday home on Bulgaria's Black Sea coast. It's a nice run through Germany, Austria, Hungary and Romania. Done it before in a Shogun, but fanc...
