    Re: Jurgens Xplorer Fan Club

    As far as I remember the 2012+ models were similar to the Xplorers, just without the front fold-out bed.

    It looks nice, but I'm always very cautious of black power coated or painted stuff. With some wear and tear it looks bad very easily where the plain version you don't see anything.

    Re: Do you like the new Defender?

    I guess that box's only reason for being semi nice about the new Defender is because he'll probably hint at getting one for free.

    The Goggas don't have that extrusion so it'll have to get fitted anyway so anyone can make that canvas to fit where ever you want it.

    Why not cut out the canvas on that inner section and pop the edges against the trailer? Then you have direct access to the trailer and the tent is nicely sealed with the trailer.

    We got about 8km between cars through hilly areas (around Garies) on UHF (with external magmount antennas). On VHF you'd probably get more. Charge from USB or cigarette lighter plug.

    That is the key thing causing most of the negative speculation. Resistance to change. Build a bridge and get over it. The Defender is dead; long live the Defender!

    100% my sentiment. It might look like a Defender, but it is a knock-off and has nothing to do with the Defender heritage. I'm also thinking this guy is thinking with his heart and not his brain.
