Hi there, I need some personal input on a 2002 Mitsubishi Pajero ,GLX LWB, Turbo deisel in fair to good condition, not excellent ! has 170,000 on the clock,duel batterys, reverse camera,storage draw in the back with power for the fridge. The asking price is $21,500. Does this seem a good price for the unit ?
And the big question, is there any one out there driving one now that is pulling a caravan, how big a van do you think it will pull with ease, do you think a 18 foot van hooked on will struggle on the hills? I hope someone out there can give some helpful in put. Regards Glenore.

Make sure it's the 3.2 DID and not the 2.8. Heaps more grunt. Lots of people are using them as tugs. For the age and km it sounds slightly exxy. Have a look here for heaps of info : http://www2.pajeroclub.com.au/forum/

Seems pretty expensive for an 02 model. For example there's an 05 on the Pajero Club forum for the same price and it appears pretty well in the pics and description but it has higher Kms at 215,000
Here's the link.

Hi Glenore

It is wisest to buy the caravan first, work out how heavy it will come up fully ladens, water tanks, gas, supplies etc, then get the tug to match. Many who have done it the other way around have had to change tugs. Different types of caravans also come in at very different weights.
