Hi every one, I am new to motorhomes, after a brief outing as a caravanner. I am going to buy a new (2008 model) Trigano Tribute 650, and would appreciate any comments from owners or those associated with this vehicle. The model I am buying is fitted with air conditioning in the cab. What sort of fuel consumption could I expect with careful use.

Many thanks

Hi johncardiff

welcome to the Forum.

everything is a little slow at the moment, people taking advantage of the weather :D :D

There are several tribby owners and exowners on here, I'm sure someone will be along shortly to answer your questions :D

I would expect that your fuel consumption will be similar to my Adria Twin at 32mpg. That is fill up to fill up, the computer tends to give overall readings of 36 to 38. There have been several threads about the Tributes, it will be worth a search.

Hi and welcome to the forum -
I have a 2003 Tribby and am delighted with what I got for the price.
The new models have come in for a lot of criticism however, but most of it only niggly.
I believe you'll find a dedicated Tribute forum here if you check under discussion. I also seem to recall a 'Living With' article from a 650 owner in the last MMM. Very eye-opening and useful.
Good luck,
Jacquie

Hi and welcome.
I know that Tribies lok to be good value, but please look a little closer at other makes.
The only serious fault that I have heard about with Tribies is that the upholstery is total crap ( quality issue)
But value for money they do look good;

Wecome , you have got off to a flying start. Tribby looks good value for money. After all it is the same base vehicle as its competitors. I think the 655 with bed across rear offers more sowage space
Sit on the seats and see if your feet touch the floor.

Cheers

I agree with DTP Chemicals - sit on the seats and see if your feet reach the floor - I considered buying one two years ago and not being able to put my feet on the floor really put me off - I didn't buy one.
