Hello all,

Over the last few months I have been asking a lot of questions in my quest to purchase a 4wd or motorhome.
With all the replies I received I finally bit the bullet and bought a pajero with 75000kms on it and two years left on the warranty,no problems.
So once again thanks for the input from the forum.

Now I have to decide what to tow!

Because I will be traveling alone there is one van that interests me, a gold stream crown the one where there is no beds poking out the ends.
Any feedback on that one, or something similar appreciated.

New subject:
When taking into consideration the loading of any van/camper, would it be wise to load up the tow vehicle to the hilt,keeping the load in the van to a reasonable weight?

Thanks in advance,

It doesn't really matter as long as you don't exceed the vehicle and camper load limits. When loading the camper try to keep the bulk of the weight over the axle. Make sure you upgrade the suspension on your Pajero. I once chewed out a brand new set of tyres on the rear of my previous vehicle (Pajero). When loaded up I was running most of the weight on the inside edge of my tyres. It something you need to watch out for with the Pajero's independent suspension I'm afraid...
I loved my Pajero but I opted for the Triton the next time around for a couple of reasons including the one I have just explained. The Triton doesn't have independent suspension. But you can get variable springs fitted to the Pajero which will stiffen things up in the rear when you are loaded. Cheers Ray
