get an 80 series landcruiser for similar comfort and power, better economy.
economy will be the same as the v6 jackeroo, but less, much less power.!
comfort will be a backward step, as will power.
but simplicity to do the job trouble free 60series hands down.
i will recomend you look on lcool.
a 85 60 series 12ht manual, brown is for sale around 12grand.
the 12ht is a superb engine, ample power,torque to tow, fugal on fuel, around the 10ltrs/100.
i would strongly suggest search for this specific model as it would be a joy to drive on your trip, with power to tow your caravan.
extremely reliable engine that usualy has 400kms and still new, owing to owners care.
these are getting solid money 2nd hand but are worth their premium every day of the week.
i unfortunatly have never driven with said engine.. yet.
here is said vehicle.
haggle a deal, as his price might be negotiable.
i would happily buy it but i like white, and i have a 84hj47 soo im not getting a newer vehicle realy.
