    I have been researching different vehicles and caravans, and have looked at the Oka, Fuso, Canters and Ivecos. The big problem for me is climbing up to the cab so unfortunately I have had to rule them out. The towing capacities are way better than a 4x4 ute or wagon so they are a serious option for a lot of people.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Haha, thought they had Izusu engines but by the sounds of it they had Perkins. With a Cummins they works be a great little unit you would imagine. .
