Which chassis to choose?

#1 Beitrag von Magicvehicle » 2018-03-14 14:46:58

Moin
good morning to all! We want to decide on a chassis to make the purchase. To cover our needs, in our search there are two chassis that we like. The first one is the Mercedes 1017 AK

and the second one is the magirus (Iveco) 110-17 aw.

Apparently Mercedes is more expensive to repair than Iveco. But at least you have the possibility to find pieces all over the world! Maybe Iveco is not so well known worldwide. Assuming that money is not a problem, with which of these two would you stay for yourselves? thanks for the answers, greetings!

I personally like the Iveco, but I guess it doesn't really matter which one you choose - both types are suitable vehicles to travel the world.
You should go with what your nose/stomach/feeling tells you - if possible, test drive both vehicles and then make your choice.

Availability of spare parts is one factor, but despite the fact that some Iveco dealers won't sell you stuff directly over the counter, getting Iveco parts is usually not a huge problem. Mercedes fans might tell you something else ;)

Thanks for your quick response Wilmaaa, the truth is that it is not easy to choose either of the two are very good trucks, if I'm not mistaken both have a 6-speed ratio change ZF? regards

This is a deeply religious question :D and will lead to controversial discussion.
Short form of the discussion is that the mercedes fraction will bring the argument of
world wide spare parts supply while the Deutz- fraction will reply that their rigs don't ever
break down so they won't ever need parts.

If i had to choose i'd go for a longer test drive in both of the vehicles and pick by gut feeling.

(edit: If money was not an issue i'd go with something with a little bit more punch, MB 1019 or
iveco 120-25, but that was not your question.)

Thank you daily40-10wc, watching your nick will I keep in mind, :D The money is not a problem in this case! for liking me I want a Mercedes Zetros turnkey! hehe I play in another division :S, in Mercedes I like the engine om 366, I suppose that the one that is more fed with 200 horses or 240 would be much better. The sad thing is that in my area there is none to visit "(

Moin!
Thanks Udo for the response, I meant that in my area I can not visit any truck! to be able to drive it and try it!
And if of course, there is a very huuge area to visit!
I have not yet turned 40, and I'm not in a hurry, I think everything is perfect..
For me traveling is like a food for the soul, it is not a competition. I just want to feel other places, live emotions and experiences, maybe be a father outside the system, there are many reasons why I would like to live alone in the truck for long periods, or forever in this life! :)

Cheers

Im not 100% sure but you wont find a 6-Speed gearbox in both vehicles.
If really one implement, 6th gear is 1:1...

Hi Magicvehicle

it could be a schedule to meet trucks and their owners during a truck event, see Treffen-Kalender
and to check out in advance whether you might be able to try several trucks.

best regards
Udo

PS: do you insist in your nickname or could use your forename?

Hi, it would be great to be able to go to an event where you can see and maybe try the different trucks. I have planned to request a leave of absence in my job to be able to dedicate myself completely to the construction of the truck, and later to travel. We were thinking of visiting a meeting in Barcelona.

http://www.meetingcamper.com/#meeting-camper

But as you can imagine, even here there are more cars and vans, and few trucks. To see all the trucks we would have to go to a large concentration, like the Albentuer in Germany and others where there is a large attendance of trucks.
Going to Barcelona I can easily do it in a weekend, going to Germany would be more complicated for me. Well, this year's holidays do not match with the dates of that concentration in Germany. Country that we have already visited by the way!
Yes there is no problem! My name is Antonio or Toni

Thanks for the empathy and understanding because my difficulties with the languages ​​are evident! :S
I hope to see people from this forum in some concentration of trucks or maybe traveling around the world! :D
Rgrs Toni

Pd: Although I am aware of what vehicle we need.., we fall in love with the aesthetic of the legendary Mercedes! :blush:
