We're on a lap of Australia in our Toyota Land Cruiser 200 Series 2011 Sahara. We bought it second hand, and have now added all of the extras and accessories we believe we needed to tackle anything on the big lap of oz. Check out the tour of our tow vehicle, which tows a 3.26T Caravan.

      If you want to tow a 2.8-3ton van in a 200 you need a GVM Upgrade to be legal. It is a shame that Toyota dont have that available as std.

      Great video, one tip, best not to leave the taps in place on your 20ltr water containers when travelling, one knock and you loose the lot. Get some bungs, then there is less chance of this happening.

      How good is the quality from the rear view mirror image from wireless cameras? Any drop outs or problems?

      Perfect and super clear. They are Sony Dome Cameras at rear. Check out our external caravan tour to see them. We now use them for reversing out and monitoring the road whilst travelling and they are realy accurate. 👍

      Loving the channel 🙂

      Just some quick questions I thought of. Do you guys carry any spare oils / coolants for the cruiser? Also with the GVM upgrades, once it's been registered you can still upgrade the GVM but what's the thing you can't upgrade? I'm also from Victoria.

      When towing, how does the big cruiser do with fuel economy and range with the longer distances?

      We just got back from Adelaide.... was indeed very hot! We are making plans to visit the peninsula... looks amazing! Too late now I know but the Adelaide hills and the town of Handolf are magic.

      Hope that makes sense 😊. We're really enjoying your channel!

      Cheers,

      Paul.

      Hey Paul - cheers for the feedback. It's greatly appreciated. We don't carry any oils, but we do carry spare fuel and air filters. We will rely on regular servicing plus roadside assist if needed. I've practiced changing the filters, so comfortable there, not too much experience on oils other than to get it serviced as and when needed. Regarding the GVM/GCM the laws are different everywhere and seem to be changing. We have the Lovells upgrade, done pre-rego. Ring Lovells as they can tell you what you can and can't do. Thanks for following along and getting in touch. Stay tuned on the Adelaide Hills and Handorf - new Episode about to drop! :)

      Do you have any vibration with the Milenco towing mirrors?
      I agree I think the Clearview mirrors are expensive

      Clearviews are great once fitted you won't go back for towing. No more vibrating clip ons.

      Only minor mate, enough to be able to see those wider spots. We have them on super tight though as we had friends who lost one passing a road train! They are expensive, but definite benefits if you can squeeze them in.

      I suppose you know when you disconnect your caravan, remember to remove the extension mirrors before driving the car on its own, I'm pretty sure it's illegal to have them on when not towing.

      yes I have Clear View mirrors, had a long thought and research before getting them.

      Cheers Peter! Another vote for the Clear View mirrors for sure, such a pain to add and remove.
