Hi Steve
You might actually enjoy driving a mighty Toyota and see the light.

We need one of you to swing back our way since old Nitro Eric has procured a NNNNNN that N word, one of those other brand thingys. I can't say it either.

Take care.

Regards

Come on guys - they're both good words. We're like the original advert. of the old farmer "Always been a cruiser man" - so family was surprised when we came home with the Nissan. Love driving the N; comfy, roomy, goes beaut on the open road, and tows well - no problems to date. Still got a cruiser trayback for the rough stuff round the farm though.

You might have lots of tools to carry, and in a TTTTTT, that T word, you might just need them as well.

Steve,
Mate purchased a brand spanking new LANDROVER, (there that wasn't so hard), to drive to the Kimberly for work, got as far as Mildura from Melbourne before it had a coronary. Dealer said it would be fixed and sent to Darwin for him to collect when he got there. They gave him one of those TTTTTTTT things to drive the rest of the way. Imagine one sour face and one unhappy partner from Mildura to Darwin over 10 days. Rolled with laughter when I heard. It's O.K. though, driving the T will make you appreciate the N more when you get it back, sort of like when they give you a Hyundai to drive while your BMW is being serviced, TRUE! :) :)

Steve,
Cruise to workshop in 5 series, get a hyundai white thing / auto / clunks and bangs, 2cm from the ground. Turn 1 speaker radio up to drown out driveline whine. End of day bring the clunker back, get 5 series and cruise home. Guess which vehicle we look for when upgrading??

Steve,
You just might find that by driving the TTTTTTT around for the day etc how easy it carries all those tools and the amount of space you have left for more tools.!!! and heavens forbid ...a front tow bar...hmmmmm must be really going to be a grey nomad :-)

goodday allan
no not a grey nomad (yet, no more hair though) just a mongrel drive way off back lane and the new van is about 1m longer than the old van which i could just squeeze in so i am hoping the front bar will give me abit more turning room

Where are you having the tow bar fitted
I have often wondered about this system
Is the ball being placed in the centre of the car , had heard some are fitted off centre so you can see down the side of the van
can i fit one to the bull bar , just for backing the van up the drive way

The only reason they give you crap, is so that when you get back into yours you will appreciate it oh so much more.

Why not just learn to reverse a trailer or van using yer mirrors. It's a bit wierd at first but once you crack it, it's easier than reversing by looking behind you. Saves all that neck strain etc.

Just look in yer wing mirrors and turn the steering wheel whichever way the trailer is moving in the mirrors. A slight nudge of the wheel here, a slight nudge there. Simple.

In fact it's simpler than a front towball because of the distance from the trailer wheels to the vehicles steering wheels.

I'm with you Bilbo. If you can't back a trailer round a corner you shouldn't be towing it forwards. It's only practice. You can also see both sides in the mirrors when backing.(you can't see the left side of the van going forwards) Steve, if you have a tight driveway to park the van maybe a ratchett jockey wheel is your answer. Cheers Craig..........
