I have fitted an Al-Ko Mammut mover to my caravan today.
Fitting is easy, the holes are already in the chassis, the wiring plugs together, there is no control box (the electronics are built into the motor units) and clips are provided to attach the wiring to the chassis.
The mover fits to the side of the chassis and no part of it projects below the chassis.
I have tested it up and down the drive, it is beautiful to use. The joystick is easier than the buttons of other movers and the speed is variable, the further you push the joystick the faster it moves.
OK it's expensive at a shade over 1400, but it is top quality and easy to use

Sounds great, but like you say, the 1400 price tag is tad pricey.

I mean I recently had a motor mover fitted, cost me 500 for the mover itself and 130 for it too be fitted.

To put the price into context, I paid about 900 for the Royal Atlas, It is no longer made but some (old stock?) are available at over 1000.
1000 for a universal Chinese made mover with limited ground clearance v 1400 for a bespoke German made mover with no reduction in ground clearance. To me it is no contest

looked at these movers several times and like the way they fit in line with the chassis, nothing to ground and damage.
if you have ever damaged your mover on road humps etc then it has to be a good buy even at this price.

1400 is 1400 however you justify it. It's a lot of money.

I have seen 1400-1500 incl fitting. I decided to fit it myself then I could fit it at my own convenience. Removing the old mover and fitting the Mammut took around 2 hours

Reversing in is not an option, the drive where the caravan lives is narrow and on a narrow road. Pushing is also not an option, the first part of the drive is cobbled and steep

I'd have to keep her somewhere else then lol! Seriously, glad you found something that suits and did the job. My OH was determined we needed a motor mover when we first got our caravan but had to manage without but she is in a great big compound with huge amounts of space to get in and out luckily.

I guess after trashing two movers due to limited ground clearance the cost of the Mammut became irrelevant.
The only thought process was:-
Which mover has most ground clearance = Mammut, can I afford it = yes

What sort of warranty do you get with a Mammut ?
