RE: Impossible List of Requirement?

You can have extreme, a growing segment here in Australia, but not that practical in the US, maybe if travelling to South America. Camper element is about 5000lbs. Vehicle has Unimog like gearing https://i.postimg.cc/qMWdWbqL/image.jpg

RE: Impossible List of Requirement?

Four wheel drive Cs are aftermarket only...because they would make lousy off road vehicles...too low, too heavy, underpowered, too high, too wide etc. I disagree and my Tiger proves it. However, I don't want to hijack this thread. Not here, you can get a " Tiger Provan" type of rig, that are pretty comfortable on fairly rough off road tracks,as well as paved roads. Depends on what you want to do. Larger 2wd units are limited to mainly smooth dirt roads https://i.postimg.cc/4xJp6hMg/image.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/Yq2S8fpb/image.jpg

RE: Ram 1500 Hemi or Ecodiesel?

Diesels are made to pull. They are made to last for high mileage. Living in Wyo those are the two things to pay attention to. It will pay for itself in increased mileage and reliability. Correct

RE: Ram 1500 Hemi or Ecodiesel?

"Supposed to be 12,650lbs towing capacity in the US, but RAM Trucks Australia has only a 7,700lb rating. Huge difference in the hype to the reality" Whatever dude, Crocodile Dundee just called and said get off the forum! PS I thought all you had were Utes that could tow the world down there. Maybe Aussie pounds are heavier because they're more full of ____ than US pounds! No the ADR does testing here for Europe as well so they test all Pickups that MAYBE sold there

RE: Ram 1500 Hemi or Ecodiesel?

We’re in the market for a Ram 1500. A friend owns a Hemi and loves it. He recommends against the diesel, citing lots of problems, lack of towing capacity and poor fuel mileage. I’ve read about some of the problems. Local dealer has eight 2018 Ram 1500 diesels still in stock and might do a great deal on a trade for our 2015 Frontier. The trailer is a steel flatbed hauling a 4-seat UTV, GVW 3000# total, 3500# single axle and tires, trailer brakes. Any thoughts? Compare GVWRs, and payloads. Then make your decision. If it can't carry the tongue weight. Stay away from it Did you actually read what he typed? There’s not a normal 1/2 ton truck made in the last idk how many years, probably 50, that isn’t rated to handle a 3500lb trailer. Supposed to be 12,650lbs towing capacity in the US, but RAM Trucks Australia has only a 7,700lb rating. Huge difference in the hype to the reality

RE: Is the EV transformation of the market over hyped ?

I lived in Regina and i doubt a current ev would be able to go anywhere in the winter as all the juice would be used to run th heater non-stop. Give the Geography it's due where it is no EV friendly you will have little sales

RE: Is the EV transformation of the market over hyped ?

It's totally immaterial to argue over it. Nobody will convince anyone else, and EV's work well in some markets and not so well in other markets, and are non-existent in still other markets. They aren't going to be a majority any time soon. Maybe 10 years they'll have a significant foothold on either coast, with slow encroachment in the midwest, and midsouth. Overall in the US and Europe it is a 2% take up, 0.02% in Australia

RE: Is the EV transformation of the market over hyped ?

Interesting article about IC gas and Diesel and Electrical Vehicles. This would also include tow vehicles. EV vehicles market domination over hyped ? In some ways I think the manufacturers are giving us mixed messages. GM says that they will introduce about 20 new EV vehicles by 2023, yet on the other hand have just introduced a new 3 liter , 6 cylinder diesel for their 1500 truck series and new..or at least revamped 6.6 liter IC gas engine and 6.6 liter IC Diesel engine for their 2020 HD pickup truck line. So what gives, as we used to say in high school ? Europeans are doing the same but they are making LPG, EV, Diesel as well as Petrol versions of the same vehicle. Hedging all bets

RE: You know your in the Australian Outback

Drop a trailer off the truck, sub moose and deer for the camel and emu, add texting drivers, and that sign suits our fly over country too:) Add 1500-2000 miles of dirt roads. No Road Trains in the US, yes you can see texting drivers as well if the Internet connection can be found. The fact that people have died on these roads because they became lost, makes it somewhat more challenging than US Roads I’m not in the USA except when I visit there. Have only been to the Rockies in Canada, the sluice Lake , name escapes me with the New Zealand like turquoise water, womans name...Lake Louise

RE: You know your in the Australian Outback

Well in the Aussie outback so-called reality shows I've seen so far (Outback gold mining and Outback trucking) ... a lot of the Outback roads are at least way more level (albeit covered in thick clay/mud at times) than where we've traveled in Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho, and Nevada. We also carry a satellite communication device with us cuz the good old Internet is indeed not available everywhere in the U.S.. As far as traveling "fast" on washboard roads in the Outback -> that's probably due to vehicles carrying on business out there and time is money. Here in the U.S. - other than maybe out in the gas well fields where we have explored in our MH - it's mostly folks out there recreating, so they're not ripping it up on our remote washboarded road surfaces. Moseying along when out and about in the U.S. so as to enjoy the views and not destroy one's non-expedition RV ... so far still works well. Your comments are based on TV shows about Australia :S Then you give dangerous in formation on how to drive in Australia.

RE: You know your in the Australian Outback

Well, with all those warnings, it's at least comforting to know that the road works. That is what they mean by that one statement, isn't it? And, as to U.S. roads, there's also "you may fall off the road if you're gawking at the scenery and not paying attention" in some states; and "carry survival equipment in winter so you don't freeze to death" in others. In a few, both warnings apply. Basically if the road goes through extreme elevation or is primarily in an all desert region, the travellers should be aware of the dangers

RE: You know your in the Australian Outback

Robert Ryan - You guys have anything to do with this AIR OPUS that is being sold here in the USA... Sure looks like one of your OUTBACK trailers haha... Has pull out kitchen drawers and even your independent suspension wheels haha... https://i.imgur.com/ZIFwQvC.jpg height=300 Google image ADDED NOTE - After readings some reviews I see the AIR OPUS is made in Australia hehe... Roy Ken https://i.imgur.com/SoQ6BfGm.jpg height=45 It is an English RV. They mainly make Caravans, bit of a departure for them

When you see this. A lot of the very remote roads are being paved, but rough roads still exist https://i.postimg.cc/FKNDpf7D/image.jpg

RE: Class C's are growing in Australia

Interesting that's it's a Jayco. You need that big bumper for all those big ol Kangeroo's that jump in front of you. I think they call them Boomers ? I've looked at the established RV's that are offered down there. Very high quality. Australians like a clean modern look in their rigs which I find appealing. But their quite expensive also. I like the big diesel ones that are on an Iveco or Mitubishi chassis if I remember correctly. Jayco has nothing to do with the US Brand that is now owned by Forest River in the US, Jayco is still owned by Gerry Ryan . You see " Winnebago's " that have been owned by AVIDA and now Apollo Motorhomes,( that have Apollo and Star RV Rentals in the US and Canada Dream in Canada Tourism holdings a New Zealand company has El Monte Rentals) Not Boomers but " Bull Bars" as well as Kangaroos , you may have cattle, Buffalo or worse case scenario Camels! IVECO or Truck based Isuzu or Mitsubishi An Apollo Motorhomes owned " Winnebago" https://i.postimg.cc/2yPwVpfp/image.jpg
