Because the seating capacity stated is greater than the actual number of seats. You can get the seating capacity changed by Vicroads making it legal, not sure on other states. I took the back seat out of mine and built a storage unit and fridge, had it like that for about three years then went back to a five seater

I understand, but how can they book you for that. So your 5 seater now only has 2 seats, that just means you can only carry 2 persons in the vehicle, the same as if hubby and wife drive around and never have any additional passengers. Stupid rule

General Discussion / Re: Bunnings Sausage Sizzel

My in-laws used to live in Gympie, before Bunnings arrived there they used to complain about the prices the local hardware chain charged the captive market it had, they were itching for the day Bunnings came to thier town, and when it did that's where they went....they were more then happy to stay away from the local guy in town who was there before Bunnings arrival.

I found that like Coles and Woolies did, they drove down prices, cornered the market and then put the prices back up....just like Bunnings.

I miss the small Mitre 10 store...you could actually buy a handful of nails...or rivets....and sometimes they stocked the not so normal stuff that you can never find at Bunnings.

Yes you can, same rule as Vic. The other thing is that as long as the vehicle is compliant with the state it is registered in you are good.

The key question that needs to be answered when assessing the removal of seats is whether the vehicle is permanently modified (the seats are removed for an indefinite period or are not expected to be refitted) or has it just been reconfigured in accordance with the manufacturers various options.
 
• For vehicles fitted with quick release seating attachments as original equipment, temporary removal of the seats is acceptable. A Modification Plate does not need to be fitted. This is commonly the case for four wheel drives and people movers.
 
• For vehicles fitted with bolt in seating structures, no approval by an Approved Person is necessary for the temporary removal of seats, provided the category of the vehicle does not change as a result of the seating reduction.

I know when I moved from NT to QLD I had to have a mod plate fitted to my troopy if I wanted to register it as a 9 seater because I had removed the rear seats.  I ended up fitting them to get registered and once done took them out.  Legal...dont know.

OK if you have the convenience of those other stores. Many people don't, especially since the days when Bunnings squeezed a fair few out of many towns.
When you want/need that little thing of a Sunday morning, 1/2 way thru a job......then you drag yourself down to the place and pay thru the nose !!   :'( :'(
i never said everyone has that many choices, i just answered the question i was asked. We actually have heaps more stores than those to choose from here in Brisbane, yet so many people still flock to Bunnings...obviously they are happy to pay whatever just for the convenience of getting stuff at one location. My in-laws used to live in Gympie, before Bunnings arrived there they used to complain about the prices the local hardware chain charged the captive market it had, they were itching for the day Bunnings came to thier town, and when it did that's where they went....they were more then happy to stay away from the local guy in town who was there before Bunnings arrival.

I don't understand how you can be booked for not having seats in place, i can understand for adding seats though.

Just asking, have had a lot of second hand chat about someone else's relo etc. being booked for not having the second row seats in the vehicle.
Using the second row for gear/water storage. 
I have a 105 Cruiser with folding/removeable seats in the 3rd. row, and they went into the shed very quickly.
I was wanting to move weight forward in the vehicle, by using the back seat area for gear, with the seats removed while Touring. 
Effectively creating a 2 seater wagon.
It's ok in Vic. if it's Temporary, and the seatbelts are left in place, as I understand it.
Just hoping someone, in Q'land., can help.  TIA.
