Ahoy from SA!!
« on: August 05, 2012, 01:33:49 PM »
Gretings all, stumbled across this Forum during the week and just wanted to introduce myself!!

Not an owner of any sort or type of CT, infact in the past Ive been known to be of the attitude that those who own/use such devices to be a little soft.

Well, maybe Im getting a little "soft' myself as Im getting pretty interested in CT's and the benifates in owning/using one!

Liking the UEV490's, and the "Echo" type/brand of CT's at the moment, found a couple of cool threads here concerning them.

I drive a 96 HZJ75 Troopie powered by (if you can call it power)  a 1HZ Engine.

Nice to be on board!!

G'day troopmaster,

To Myswag.
Have you thought about an after market Turbo for you old girl?
Some of the guys on Lcool have got fair results from fitting one on their 1HZ's, Just a thought.  ;D
Sorry can't help you at all with either camper.
I'm sure someone will be able to help you.
Hope you enjoy your time here.
Happy & Safe travels.
You don't use magic to disappear, all you need is a 4wd & a Swag ;)

G'day & Welcome.

Any fool can be uncomfortable has been my motto since first using a camper trailer, I reckon you'll enjoy getting soft. Good luck in your search.
