    Not bad off road, considering.

    Not something to be recommended without one of those steel sump guard thingies and some knobbly tyres! :eek: One thing I noticed on my 190 on very rough terrain was the great torsional strength of the basic body shell- very little " twist" compared to many lesser vehicles. :thumb:

    i was trying to figure out what bit of land would be suitable to build a house on... vehicular access is kind of important so walking wouldnt really prove much.

    I'm thinking of one of the Huf haus type builds so its crucial that truck loads of stuff can get there.


    The HUF House - HUF HAUS GmbH u. Co. KG

    huf haus very nice.

    Looks like a pleasant spot.

    Why not do a Grand Designs and post some time lapse photos for us?

    I would like to see them anyway.

    It's just a bit of a pipe dream at the moment... First I need to source the right spot of land... I know the exact spot but swmbo doesn't quite agree at this point in time.

    For a moment, I thought you were looking for somewhere to dump the car!
