Horses for courses. A couple of years ago a retired couple were camped with us and they had a 4x4 Canter. It went remarkably well but was too big for some of the smaller tracks. Well set up thing it was too. Ideal for what they were doing and used within its limitations very capable.
You actually take notice of something said in an All 4 Adventure?
Bluestorm mafia and maybe one or two other vices.

Have driven 4wd trucks off road for years with the RFS. It is absolutely amassing where those things can go, the little canters are almost unstoppable. The bigger Isuzu's are a bit limited but still quite surprising where they will go.

The old man has recently bought a new Isuzu NPR 4wd cab chassis and is building a body for the back Earthcruiser style. As with every camping set up it has it's draw backs and there is no perfect all round set up. He believes it'll get into more spots than a big van and 4wd, but also realises it won't go everywhere. He mainly wants it for touring. Although he's going at a cracking pace he needs to get it finished so we can build my small offroad van!
Obviously Toyota wouldn't sponsor him!!Theres lots of people that consider Prado's "an expensive under performer". To quote one of the chaps in All 4 Adventure - "I had a Prado once. Sold it 'cause they're a bit of a girls car."

I was down the shops the other week and a guy pulled up in a standard parking spot in one of these. It stopped me in my tracks, and I just had to ask him for a look inside. Air seats, 37" tyres, 24 forward gears, 4 reverse, etc.
