Hello tps57 Welcome to the boggers forum. The discussions regarding weight both of what one pulls and carry will always be a topic for any caravanning forum BT or otherwize. We chose a 100series Landcruiser V8 petrol based on convenience (not so big as the F'trucks) and cost. Following advice from this forum and our own investigations, like 'tellembuggerem' we considered that these units represented good value for power and money as well as holding their value. As far as what equipment to carry with you on trips depends a lot on where your planning to go and for how long. We used to hire out on and off road campers and provided a basic set of equipment with our vans for both gas and 240V cooking, recovery equipment for the 4WD units, bedding of course, seats and fold away table. Clothing - select what you think you'd like to take... then halve it. Always include a first aid kit, a torch and spare battery and warm clothing no matter where you are going or for how long. Not sure if this is the sort of information you were seeking - but its a start! Cheers... Helen
