RE: Roadtrek's ProMaster "B"

Jayco Australia uses three chassis. The IVECO supports a 28ft 3slide, 6,600lb towing. The Mercedes and Ducato have fairly low towing capacities http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a186/RobRyan7/imagejpg1_zpsc3f65806.jpg

RE: Let's fix football....once and for all

I would like to see all the equipment discarded. Aussie Football and Rugby players do just fine, as far as I know. The NFL players can show off their skills....and even more so... I noticed the Seahawks are now using Rugby Tackling a lot more effective than the helmet and block method used by other teams

RE: A very secure load

I'd like to know how they got those cars onto the pickup bed ??? My guess is forklift If they could afford one. More likely a lot of manhandling

RE: A very secure load

I'd like to know how they got those cars onto the pickup bed ??? Probably dragged them on a ramp onto the bed, then turned them on their side

RE: What you've been waiting for,,,Transit campervan

Been tried here... didn't sell. Only lasted a year or two. Yeah , they have made a few. Unusual base to start with and it is 4x4, like Sportsmobile Normal HiAce Capervan conversion , the cupboards etc swing out of the way http://digiads.com.au/carsales/used-cars/car_ad_photos/digiads_car_ads_139178_1.jpg

RE: A very secure load

The first picture is photoshopped. The rest are hilarious. no, not photoshopped, but saw stuff like that in places like Bangadesh. Most of the other overloaded shots would get you roughly 5ft here, before the Police would fine you into the ground

A very secure load

You do see scenes like this in 4th World countries. Ancient midsize Toyota, doing its bit http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a186/RobRyan7/imagejpg1_zps99613c71.jpg

RE: What you've been waiting for,,,Transit campervan

Door prize but that is it! Lived in Japan 8 years--space to park, drive on roads and camp are critical, more so than here. Know what people will survive with and wont... We have to get some new ideas based on Transit & Promaster chassis. I think we can do better than these two efforts. The Aussies produce some nifty rigs too as Ryan has shown, down under!! AL This is a new Company, that produces some very unusual Motorhomes. The one based on a Toyota HiAce,others are on fairly heavy Toyota and IVECO Trucks Toyota 4x4 Off Road " Autarky" Motorhome. Basically a Class B with a rear slideouts http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a186/RobRyan7/imagejpg1_zps43e995ab.jpg http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a186/RobRyan7/imagejpg3_zps50cd310c.jpg http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a186/RobRyan7/imagejpg4_zpsd347b16a.jpg http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a186/RobRyan7/imagejpg1_zpsf95c03a5.jpg

RE: Who has converted their Class C to 4X4

Ductape I know a person who uses a four cylinder diesel Isuzu cab over for his landscaping business. He also thought it would work for hauling large objects to his cabin. It seems the Isuzu is geared for city driving. No power at freeway speeds and horrible mileage on top of that. I think it would be good to use for short trips for camping or driving about the desserts. But I can't see how these people take them to South America etc. Really rough ride at speed. Understatement, they are basically delivery vehicles in a crowded Urban environment. Yes larger ISUZU/Hino etc work, but are not sold in North America. Largest I can see for Hino is a 33,000 GvWR Conventional Cab Truck, not really suitable for Off Road excursions.

RE: Who has converted their Class C to 4X4

Last trip I saw a really nice rig with a truck camper mounted on a cabover like the Izuzu NPR. He had toolboxes on the bed under the sides of the camper, so lots of storage. I have seen those kinds of trucks in 4x4. Probably pretty good on fuel, but maybe underpowered for the typical driver that wants a lot of pep. They the NQR version used here for Off Road. They are very good Off Road, negative would be the suspension, that needs to be modified. They use European MDT's like MAN, that have considerable towing and load capacities

RE: Who has converted their Class C to 4X4

Can be done, here is an example rvtrader.com/listing/2008-Host-Class-C-Motorhome-330-4WD-QUAD-SLIDE-113395675 He would not be going too far Off Road, that overhang would kill even of thinking doing that

RE: Let's fix football....once and for all

No more offensive, defensive and special teams; players play both ways and are out of the game if substituted for. Do away with big time sports at the college level, it hasn't hurt the University of Chicago. One problem I have with US Gridiron,or Americanized Rugby, is the extreme specialisation. One Now retired Rugby League player while doing University in Hawaii, ended up playing as a Defensive Lineman for the College team. He lost interest in playing because of the specialisation. My son and oldest grandson tried football in high school but gave up on it after one year, switched to rugby and never went back. Son and son in law still play old boys. Now all the grand kids play including the girls, but it is a popular sport here at the school and club level. No pros though. leaving New Zealand today after dropping a bunch of money on the latest All Blacks gear for Christmas presents. Speaking of ALL BLACKS they played at a sell out crowd 62,000 at Soldiers Field in Chicago, with very little publicity for the game. I was in NZ, 3 Weeks ago, my wife being the chauffeur this time, went from Wellington to Auckland

RE: Looks like the 2015 Ford F-150 Could Be a Game-Changer

This looks like an excellent truck. My pick would be the 3.5 turbo 4x4. That would easily handle my camper. Glad to see all of these now have a decent payload; I just don't see the point of having a pickup truck that can't pickup anything meaningful because of its limited payload. Hopefully it will also mean that those people who buy one then decide they want a truck camper won't be as disappointed as previous half ton pick-up owners when they found their 1500 lb or lower payload was a real limitation when considering a camper. Steve. Steve agreed, the 1500/1600lb payloads, is pretty light. Even so I still think most US TC owners will go for something a lot heavier I.e. Like. A F550 The 3,300lb payload only refers to the HD version of the F150. The Ford Ranger has a max 3100lb capacity

RE: Maverick Capri Campers

I hear they're under new owners and have a "new attitude". I read it on the internet. I can appreciate their simplicity. You might want to verify weight of the unit, after adding options, before signing on the dotted line. Very crude looking things. I have seen one off Truck Campers here in Australia, that are vastly better than those Capri's
