    2020 Black Series HQ 17 Caravan-Sleeps 4

    Well is should be 5,000lbs BUT I have tha 2004 Airstream Westfalia and I have a heavy 4wd system on it. So sadly it won't pull it. Short of replacing the engine and tranny I'm stuffed. Be wonderful if anyone had a fix but so far the best and brightest tell me to either get something that will...

    Damaged MAN Expedition truck

    There is another MAN in this country the guy was trying to sell. I looked into it. He stayed too long over his 1 year visitor permit. After multiple inquiries I was told that that these trucks that overstay their 1 year permit in the USA are subject to fines and possible seizure and that...

    Damaged MAN Expedition truck

    It's a deal for sure on a very capable rig. Easy $350,000K running. Probably looking at $50-$100K in parts labor/shipping. Maybe you could swap out the MAN engine and tranny for something USA but then you can't legally register it anyway, although I'm sure someone on here can.

    2020 Black Series HQ 17 Review Part 2

    Psea have to agree. In the past I've done my own thing. I hoped in 2020 they'd fixed their issues. I've pulled out all of the Chinese crap. Today the TV they put in stopped working. Not that I need a TV but if you are going to put one in at least put quality. Shame and as you say they have...

    2020 Black Series HQ 17 Review Part 2

    That all sounds great on paper but attention to detail is just not there. I know I bought one! It arrived with screws floating around in cabinets, sawdust everywhere. Their customer care is rubbish-no inventory on parts-6 weeks for a replacement faucet. No owners manual. I would say Raspy...

    Tricking the Air Suspension in a Range?

    Several years ago I converted a RR Sport into an Overlander. Instead of replacing the suspension I bought an attachment that tricked the air suspension into staying up. It was brilliants just a couple of metal clips. I want to know if I can do it to a 2019 Ranger Rover? Anyone have any...
