I am quite impressed with the aliners, but dissapointed they do not come in a serious off-road format. To any aliner or cruiseliner enthusiasts, how strong are the bodies? I am contemplating building a chasis with independent suspension, trailing arms on air bags, and "attaching" the Aliner to this. Am i off with the faireys or do you reckon the body would take it. The few I have seen out and about were given a fair hiding over the gravel roads and seemed to handle it OK,
Any comments would be appreciated ...

I am told that the Off-road version of the Aliner is reasonably tough ..

Nearly got one meself but didn't really want to spend the extra cash above the price of my CT ..

I am selling mine on Ebay. I raised it by 75mm between chasis and suspension and another 50mm by fitting larger tyres.
Mine hasn't had any problems.

Hi glen
i saw that one, did you do anything to the chasis, or just the axle? I would like something that I could take on something more than just gravel roads, and something that could handle 1000's of ks of corregations. Where have you taken yours?
Thanks

The axle is mounted to its own approx 2 metre lenght of steel which is then welded to the chasis. This was separated and a lenght of 75mm welded between (like doing a 75mm body lift). Taken mine to Innamincka and Birdsville.

hi
I have a sportsliner....by A'Van a 2000 model
it has higher ground clearance, simply by the manufacture lifting the axle a little. I think it would take a fair bit but as for ral rough stuff ????
