Any one here have any feed back regarding redback offroad campers?

Looking at an 18 month old one with very little use. I have had a look at their website, was just wondering if there are any owners with feed back.

Second question, being quoted $1200-$1400 to do the clutch in the 98 V6 Pajero by a trusted mechanic, I just did a little recoil at the price, but its being about 14 years since I last did a clutch so maybe thats the going rate??? How much did you pay?

Cheers

Paj :)

Jokes aside the clutch job is fine.

What model Redback are you looking at?

Hi Paj

I did my clutch about 15 mths ago and the absolutely cheapest I could get a kit for a 3.5 1997 was $550. I also had new spigot bearing ($15), rear seal ($42), and fly wheel needed machining ($45) + 6 hrs labour at $60 per hour. totalcost $1100

I did find a cluth kit on ebay for 450 but with freight charges on top decided to use locally sourced one. If you are sydney or melb based it may be worthwhile to check online.

Pajpower,

What a bargin clutch!
Navara D40 clutch $2500 - 4000. Parts & labour. Would probably need 5 clutches in the life of the car to - perhaps more.

Go for it.

AT least the V6 does not have a Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF) & clutch setup. If you want a fright price one of those for the 2.8 or later 3.2 diesels.

Geniune clutch retail $ 645.00

Flywheel machine and spiggot brg $50.00

so if you're looking at around $500 labour its on the money

Check out the canvas thoughorly, it can be sus, the canvas quality is good but the workmanship can be bad, little things like walls not meeting, being shorter from one end of the wall to the other, stitching coming undone.

The trailers are very good and very strong, this is ours.
