Just interested In what cars/trucks you fine folks are using for camping.

I just got a 91 Landcruiser. Later will be modifying a trailer to load more gear in. Started with a ford laser...that was an engineering feat loading that with gear.
ahh the good ol days..........................

Toyota Prado. Had a 4cyl Subaru Outback which we were very happy with, but decided it was a bit marginal to tow our wind-up camper.

Mitsubishi Pajero, but we have to load the trailer with cage on the back to take everything. Once you get 4 kids and 2 adults in it there's not enough room to pack everything.

Same as mytribe hooked up with a CT.

Used to have a RAV 4 but it really didn't like pulling the CT. As a result we bought a Getz and have found that as we only use our Paj for trips we actually save money on fuel in comparison to when we had the RAV.

Either the missus car (yay company cars!)


my car (once again - yay for company cars)

But it looks like i'll be getting rid of the MG ZT-T 180+ soon and replacing it with a GU patrol 4.2 TD (yet to decide if i want manual or auto though)

BTW - they arent photos of our actual cars - they are blatantly stollen from various sources (thanks google image search) on the internet
A place I'd rather be...

I to started with a new laser back in 81, progresssed to a new commodore in 91, then a Pajero in 2000, then a Pajero io in 2004 and now a new Suzuki Grand Vitara.

Thats not a lot of cars over many years.

Started with a super-charged VN 5ltr V8 that was so low anyway to tow anything. Then I grew up and bought a Mitsubishi Challenger 4WD.
Not the best kknown 4WD on the market. It's surprised a lot people with how it keeps up with the big end of town. It's a great place to start. Only had it 2 years. Had it three days and we pushed off the road by a hoon and nearly rode it off! 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Any man, in the right situation, is capable of murder. But not any man is capable of being a good camper. So, murder and camping are not as similar as you might think.
