    Re: Right fit for an overland newbie

    Pathfinder in a manual 2.5 is super strong. I towed my Xplorer for a number of years with one. It was a replacement for a 3.2 pajero and was a much better tow vehicle. But no DL and spares are...

    Re: Snomaster vs Dometic (80l)

    I have a NL 90Lt twin and a snomaster 60Lt single. As nice as the twin is its big, very big. But saying that, it's a lot smaller than 2 x 40Lt units. Power consumption is more on the twin but that is...

    Re: Snomaster vs Dometic (80l)

    The cf range are more power hungry as it's older technology. You would need to compare the cfx to the snomaster. Cfx is lighter to carry, the snomaster is cheaper on the wallet.

    Re: Off-Road trailer batteries

    Depending on where it is parked at home, you can link an intellegent charger to it and leave it to maintain, or even run it on a solar charge.

  6. Re: Can I tow a caravan less than 750kgs with my normal code B license

    No. Even if it was only 700kg on the weigh bridge, if the gvm is 840kg it is illegal for you to tow with a B licence
  7. Re: Can I tow a caravan less than 750kgs with my normal code B license

    Speak to the guys on the caravan forum. These guys have a wealth of knowledge, and will be able to assist with the actual weight.
  8. Re: Can I tow a caravan less than 750kgs with my normal code B license

    You need the gvm
  9. Re: Can I tow a caravan less than 750kgs with my normal code B license

    The plate on the caravan should have a GVM indication. A code B allows you to tow upto 750kg gvm, be it a trailer or a caravan
