We're thinking of buying a Mitsubishi FUSO CANTER 2nd hand. We'd like to hear from owners of the same rig. It's a recent model. Are there any problems we should be aware of? Is there a good forum for this vehicle? We are also considering living in it for a few years but it looks like it will take a lot of preparation... Any hints? A specific forum? Thanks. EveW

Hi EveW, we have a 2012 4WD Fuso Canter that is converted to a Motorhome. Expedition portal is a good web site in this Sub forum


http://www.expeditionportal.com/forum/forums/72-Japanese-Heavy-Truck-Mitsubishi-and-Isuzu

Plenty of useful threads with enormous amounts of information/tips and mods.
Our truck was very comfortable and capable for the trip that we needed it for, we have no further use for it in the foreseeable future, it is listed for sale here.

As kanga said have a good read of the expo forum. Lots of info.

We have an Isuzu nps300 4wd and have built an expedition vehicle. The canter and Isuzu are the best pick imo and have good support. The Iveco is worth a look.

The Daily 4x4 is a very different vehicle to the Canters and NPS300. I had a NPS300 but had to get rid of it if I wanted a wife still. The ride even with mods is not a patch on a standard Daily 4x4. The Daily is great to drive, and even better with a few dollars spent to improve it. The Daily has its idiosyncrasies but if understood and modified is a great vehicle for an Expedition camper.

What ever you buy, make sure it is kitted out to your specs and with enough storage for what you need. Might as well be happy with it. Just be cautious of DPF operation especially when in spinefex country.
