After working out what type of van we would live in, we researched suitable cars that could tow it. In the end we opted for a Ford Ranger XLT.
To be honest, Craig did all of the research while I just came along for the test drives. There are a heap of features on this car that you discover when you plan to fit it out for a cross country adventure.
An example is a snorkel is almost redundant if you are doing water crossings less than 800mm, as the diff breathers are positioned at that height! We still got one added though more as a filter for the dust than anything.
If you are considering a Ford Ranger for your trip, I will coax all of the worthwhile techo information from Craig and add it to this page. He’s not really a blogging kinda guy.
