  11. very rare i dont recall how many they made i only saw one when i was driving and that drove right around me as i was bogged down in a feild very good off road but as i recall plated at 38 tons and a payload of 21 ? tons so they never caught on when was the last time anyone saw one on the road

  14. be carefull mate i built a trailer to tow behind my 1980 z 1100 made to legal sizes it was a proper pig to tow the suspenion was way to hard rather than take the bumps out one side would take off momenteraly causing a very bad wobble i made my tow bracket myself but you could in those days
  15. thanks for your responces the hcvs seems to require you to have there insurance fair enough but im already insured ill have to look at it come renewal time the autohome site doesent seem to cover larger vehicles but your not the first to recomend them so looks like its on the phone moday morning thanks again andy
  16. i have what pretty mutch amounts to a spare scammell in the shed mate i just need to know i can get it back from the other side of the country if the worst should happen im hoping to do w+p this year thats best part of 200 miles away

  20. the heater on mine is fitted to the inside of the rear cab paneljust off the floor behind where your right heal is, its a coil of pipe fiulled with water piped from the rear axle oil cooler so is hot a 24 volt fan blows the air in the general direction of the winch operating lever it really makes no dicernable differance if you dont have 1 i really woudent lose sleep over trying to find 1 and any way proper drivers always have the front window open sorry not bright enough to post photos andy
  21. you will need a cummins L 10 mine was fitted by the previos owner you can look at younguns explorer blog to get an idea of what you up against andy
  22. a nice reliable MEADOWS diesel might you mean ? like , just for arguments sake the 1 from floyd :D:D
  23. if they are lumping moter caravans in with living vans and calling them vehicles are they talking about something self propelled and not purely a trailer
  24. ok i can clearly see from this that the carrage of goods or the ability to carry them needs a mot of the relevent class but ive long been of the beleif that living vans were mot exempt i know for perhaps 10 or 12 explorer owners towing binners brockhouse , sentinel , rubbery owen office / stores trailers soley for rally/ show accomodation not mot ing are we all breaking the rules ?
