Just recently dug deep and purchased at Auction (Grays) a 2012 model with 33k klm on the clock, still with all mine signage, radios and aerials seat covers etc.
Unable to load photo at this stage, but found a thread around 15th September 2015
which has photos of one for auction in WA and a comment from member "chris j10" in which he describes the Mods he did to his.
So I am very interested in hearing from any one out there with experience of these units and especially from Chris j10 if he is watching so I may develop some plans for mine

Regards
Grant

33,000k's seems low for that age vehicle?

Yeh the one that sold last year in WA had 40k klm on it and the tyres on this one looks in better condition and rims also, body appears unmarked and I believe they
only were used to transit workers from accommodation village to mine site often on bitumen roads.

Hi Grant, we have one.


It was converted into a Motorhome by a Queensland company.


They did a good job. Check the front bump stops have around 45mm of clearance on level ground. Yours may still have the speed limiters active, also may have a GPS transponder that you may or may not want. Good trucks though and it really surprised me a couple of times this year where it would actually go, gobsmacked actually.
Parts are a little exxy from Fuso you don't have much choice ATM, I bought the obligatory spares and didn't need any of them on our recent trip.
Cheers, Kanga..................

Thanks Kanga,

Those pics are amazing, and I will certainly be checking out the front bump stops, speed limiter and GPS transponder.
I am thinking of exploring the fitting of a tow bar for our 21' 2500kg ATM on road caravan with view to still travel OZ, whilst generating an income seasonally in appropriate areas as an eco touring business.
Any thoughts/imput would be appreciated.
Would you consider providing me with the name of the people who did your fit out?
Many thanks
Grant

Hi Grant, the conversion to a Motorhome was done by Silversun in Queensland, they did a pretty good job of it. You'll have little rubber grommets in the tops of your diffs for breathers that will need to be modded to raise them. Talk to Dave at ATW, they will be able to supply a raised breather kit for a few $. Don't see why you couldn't pick up some work as you travel, it should already be mine spec and shouldn't need much if anything to comply with whatever relevant red tape may be required for your intended purpose. Cheers, Kanga...

While you are at ATW, get them to fit a set of their parabolic springs.
You will be amased....
It has probably got 285/70R19.5 tyres on 8 1/4"rims. I would go up to the 305s.

When you are in Yandina (at ATW) also call into Vanglas nearby and check out their light weight sandwich panels for the interior conversion.

Cheers,
Peter
