Hi TB like ya rig can it seat 3 ? I was living in Tanami in 97 and it rained for 3 weeks .It was amazing waterfalls everywhere, billabongs full of water and then the Desert came to life from burnt red cour to brilliant green it was a sight for sore eyes.Pitty my eyes and the 10 or so Aboriginals in my 4wd didn't see a massive hole on Tanami Rd which swallowed my Landcruiser up to roof.Had a few children land on top of me It was twilight and the guys in front with me said difficult for them to see at that timeof day..But jeez during day they can spot a Goanna 100metres of the road while I was driving at anout 80kmh

Yes full time 4wd with low range and rear locker. Weren't interested in putting shower and toilet inside as we have 4 seats 2x 65lt fridges, one set of double bunks, a single and a queen bed, have a porta potti though. It would be easy to fit it all in, move one pair of seats back and turn the one on the other side around and stick a table between them, remove the 3 kids beds and there is all the room in the world to put in whatever you want. Flat floor 12 + 24v lighting, solar, 3 water tanks. The 4 burner house size stove and sink are on rollouts in the side lockers under the 6m awning. As a bus it was $340k new only has 112,000km we will sell for $175k

Tell me about it. We came back from WA via the Great Central Rd to Uluru then to Alice via the Mereenie Loop only to discover that Tennant Creek had its coldest July day on record (about 10 degrees). The one night we stayed in Alice was -3. Couldn't wait to get back to sunny Melbourne (lol).
