It's great looking at all the different set-ups others have. I like the way the camper part of that Hilux S2 posted can stand on it's own. Meaning you can leave your camp set up while going offroading in a lighter 4wd for the day.

But I agree that you need a larger ute to be carrying all that safely. Whether it's extended wheel base Landcruiser, F-truck or Iveco, depending on what sort of budget you have.

Don't think so - at least $30-40K more than Iveco

Geez, at those prices, that fully equipped F250 4x4 at $40K with camper and the dual rear wheels and all looks more and more like "Grand theft - auto" than just "stealing" ...

$s saved could go a long way towards the cost of fuel if she was a thirsty demon.... Even a new engine if you happened to have the misfortune of grabbing a crook one. Only fella I knew that had one of those swore by it and carried heavy loads over bad roads for many years before he updated. Don't know if the ride is ok or truck like, but I reckon dr google would answer that question!

Best regards,

Drooled over an Iveco slide on Camper conversion at the Adelaide Camping show yesterday.
Manufactured in Melbourne by Trailblazers RV.
Excellent job of conversion on a twin cab Iveco 4WD.
3 litre bi turbo 4 pot diesel, 6 speed manual with splitters on both high and low, diff locks front, rear and centre.
AND to keep all happy shower and toilet in an internal bathroom.
Considering what it was the price was reasonable, a mere $230k.
Better look for that shelf stacking job........
