This is the smallest version the 35C. Notice it as big as a Sprinter. 70C version is faster carries vastly a greater load.
These have replaced Sprinters as a Motorhome base for many manufacturers here.
Even so the 35C was hitting 103mph on the Autobahn, 70C version 110mphYou tube of IVECO Daily at 103mph on a German Autobahn

Is that kind of speed useful in some way? Are there autobahns or other types of high speed commuter freeways/highways in Oz where you could take advantage of 103-110 mph? Where would one use that kind of velocity in a motorhome? Late for your non-refundable campground reservation?


Mike. Comments are anecdotal or personal opinions, and worth what you paid for them.

2016 Sunstar 26HE, V10, 3V, 6 Speed (sold @ 4600 miles)

Oh my gosh that’s fast. Is there a constructive reason for going that fast? lol I’ve taken mine to 82 mph towing a Nissan Rouge on a dolly. It has a 2.7 l Mercedes’ diesel. Note it was no around, it only me. Never the less it was dangerous.

A places like the Northern Territory has no speed limit on many parts of the Territory
Basically I was trying to convey that people are not crawling along, bot maintaining 60-70mph cruising speeds without much of a problem

On German Autobahns and some other parts of Europe you have unrestricted roads. Not suprising to see a Porsche go past you at 150mph. Downside if you wreck YOU PAY FOR ALL THE DAMAGE

Fun fact: For trucks with a GVWR over 3500 kgs / 7700 lbs, the speed limit in Germany and the neighboring countries is 80 kph / 50 mph. This is enforced by a speed limiter which limits top speed around 90 kph.
The dual rear wheels are usually indicative of an elevated GVWR, but it appears you can buy a DRW Daily right at 3500 kgs GVWR, with a limiter at 160 kph / 100 mph.

Only in forward gears, as they're usually hinged at the front edge and open upwards from the back, like a roof top spoiler, so improved down force is increased, too.
However, 103mph in reverse may dislodge them.

Which does not apply in Australia. Nonetheless the 4x4 version is used by Expedition vehicle manufacturers
