RE: Chinese Pickup towing a lightweight 5ver

Can you get those at Walmart? No, now seeing a lot of them. They are as big as the Ranger. Engine the twin turbo diesel similar to the Ranger. Interior is probably better than the Ranger . Of course new Ranger/ Amarok should be vastly better than theses

RE: Chinese Pickup towing a lightweight 5ver

Towing an antiquated square nose 5th with a Chinese short bed truck...what could possibly go wrong? Aren't those trucks electric? No twin turbo diesel like the Ranger. Others have used these Chinese Pickups to row these Lightweight 5vers. Chinese are trying to unseat Ranger and Hilux with these. These Chinese Pickups would the equivalent in price to the Ford Maverick in the US Agree 5ver is pretty old and cheap

RE: Chinese Pickup towing a lightweight 5ver

Could be just the angle, but that looks like it's squatting quite a bit in the rear, considering the difference in the tires in the wheelwells. No, no, no, don't worry the fiver is "1/2 ton towable" says the Chinese salesman.:) Probably would find that easy to tow

RE: Chinese Pickup towing a lightweight 5ver

Looks to be a China knockoff of a Toyota Tacoma. No Tacomas are only North American specific

Chinese Pickup towing a lightweight 5ver

They are slowly gaining acceptance as Pickup Trucks. Not a great fan of buying from China , but their quality is inproving in leaps and bounds their main attraction is a very low price. https://i.postimg.cc/TYDkS1ct/FB-IMG-1640326927800.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/4drJfnHW/FB-IMG-1640327487994.jpg

RE: Whats wrong with this 5th Wheel Tow Vehicle?

Right hand drive not allowed in Australia, unless 30& years old. Frank Exactly. Very good comments Frank on that other site

A TATRA Off Road Motorhome

https://i.postimg.cc/jd8DcZTz/tatra-4.jpgTrying to keep up with the builders of Off Road Motorhomes in Australia is getting difficult.intead of a MAN, IVECO or Japanese Truck base this uses a TATRA a Czech mining/ military Truckhttps://i.postimg.cc/HnqXSnwq/tatra-1.jpg

RE: IVECO Daily at Speed

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

RE: IVECO Daily at Speed

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. 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

RE: IVECO Daily at Speed

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? 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

IVECO Daily at Speed

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

RE: Whats wrong with this 5th Wheel Tow Vehicle?

The set up/body is ideal if it were not on an ancient truck. That is probably why the owner w a s selling it

RE: Whats wrong with this 5th Wheel Tow Vehicle?

While building the custom rear bed, the rear axle should have been narrowed along with the frame. What is wrong with right hand drive in Australia? Nothing bit different in the US

RE: Whats wrong with this 5th Wheel Tow Vehicle?

Well, to actually answer the question in the Title, nothing is obviously wrong with it, (in Australia) or the many other country's with the steering wheel on the right side. :h Yes you got it. Steering wheel is on the opposite side

RE: Australian all Electric Family Off Road Caravan

Too bad some folks can’t just appreciate some things without trying to tear them apart. Pointing out obvious flaws isn't "trying to tear them apart". What's really too bad is the way some folks overlook major problems with solar systems, simply because they want solar to work as well as the alternatives. The emperor has no clothes. I would guess that the Australian engineers know just a bit more about their trailer than you do. Just a guess, but I could be worng. Pretty well spot on. Do not know what he is talking about

RE: Australian all Electric Family Off Road Caravan

I would guess that the Australian engineers know just a bit more about their trailer than you do. Just a guess, but I could be worng. The "engineer" (if there even is one) puts in whatever the marketing department wants. The marketing department has absolutely no idea what actually works in the real world - only what they think they can sell. The RV industry is rife with examples of bad ideas, and bad implementations of mediocre ideas. If you think the mere act of introducing a product automatically makes it a good design, I've got some Chevy Vegas I'd like to sell you. No, this is a custom design built for apecific customers, nothing to do with an imaginary marketing department

RE: Australian all Electric Family Off Road Caravan

Yes it is in the factory. Like an extreme 4x4 Pickup is usually on the showroom rather than the outdoors As the person who photographs the cars we sell on our used-vehicle lot: things always photograph the best, in shade. More detail comes through - and if I was selling something this interesting, I would park it in the shade too ;-) I LOVE the idea of an all-electric RV. Thanks for posting that. They the 48V Caravans are starting to appear. As well the chassis can help the tow vehicle move the Caravan as well
