    Towing with Toyota Cab Chassis

    Merv I need about 350 extra Kgs Probably won't be able to afford a new Silverado etc The Single Cab has a GVM of 3400 and a kerb of 2175 according to toyota The 200 I have now has a CVM of 3350 and a kerb of 2715 (real world weight bridge, full fuel no occupants 3140) There would seem to be a 300 Kg saving if one counts the tray as 250 Kg Queensland rego Can't get an answer to the question If I have the GVM uprated (ARB to 3580 Kg) does the van have to lose the increase 230 KG I wish I were a millionaire then it would be a new Chev/GMC for me !!!!

    Shovels are fun.....NOT!

    I think that it's a way to "hide" the lack of staff and "will" to look after those who wish to patronise these parks Seems that it is just another way to discourage visitation and use by the National Park bureaucrats who seem to think that parks are their private property and the public is just a nusiance. If you can keep people out then you don't have to maintain or provide the facilities etc However I would argue that as the national park is paid for by all we should be able to vist,traverse and camp in any park without restriction subject to the usual "tred lightly" etc practices and I acknowledge that there may be at times good conservation reasons to restrict entry similar to closed seasons for fishing etc Probably goes against the grain but protest to your local member(remembering the next election will be in March 2015) and/or civil disobedience(pay after using causes lots of paperwork)

    Landcruiser 200 Transmission Behaviour

    Allan The toyota system only allows you to select the highest gear the box can to go too For example if you move the s selector to 2 then the box will not go higher than second gear (useful when wanting some engine braking) or alternatively if you select 5 then the box will never go into sixth gear That said if you select 2 at 80km/hr the system will not allow the box to shift until the speed and revs and gearing match (thus protecting the gearbox and motor) but once it does shift 2 will be the highest it will then go The s mode is not like a triptronic gearshift (unfortunately) Hope this makes sense Regards Jaap

    RV Villages

    Sue Do your research throughly Are you buying a freehold lot or a lease ? If a lease 99 year or term of your life and what are the conditions should you wish to leave or come to the end of the road so to speak What costs are involved eg: body coporate fees, local authority rates and charges etc The above varies from State to State. Regards Jaap PS I never going there no matter how old I get
