I would like to thank everybody for their advice that helped me no end. This is the first forum I have ever been on and have enjoyed the experience. This internet capper is unbelievable. The good will shown highlights the positive nature of people that eventually triumphs over negative, mean spirited individuals.

Fatso, I think Bruce thinks you should possibly have a look at the rig pic here. Is a heavy setup though but all camp boxes are. So are fully equipped LC100s or breadboxes.

If you have been talking to Truckster he could give you some details or contact details are under the rig pix.
Cheers,

Fats,
Good choice. Thats what my mate with the Heaslip has.
The only problem with it for me, as being quite tall, it doesn't have the same 'room' for 2 people as the Toyota (IMHO).

Yeh Brad, you may be right. I am only a little guy at 6'4" and need leg room so avoided a Yota. There are some bigger guys in this forum. Two I have met taller than me. I won't name em.

My bed is larger than King Size in the camper.....
Cheers,

Im a mere pigmy at 6'0 and size was not an issue. However the amount of two wheel driving, I will be doing, and 8 grand, the nissan with coils won out.

Hi fat bastard , re your Question on my rear canopy ,I had a good look at the carry me camper and was impressed , two of the main deciding factors I went for the F/glass was 1) weight ..carry me was approx 300kg heavier and thats a lot before you even start loading
2) cost the canopy including racks and fully lined with carpet to stop condensation was neally $4000.00 cheaper .
I am really happy with my layout in the canopy I can access the fridge from the side window and it never gets moved , also even witha drawer system I built up front , we can fit a full size double mattress cross ways as the tray is 1.9m wide,and the boss loves sleeping off the ground .
