Yet I have no plan neither I do have the right vehicle but mostly I´m searching for companion, I mean nice company, humorous people with a great respect for the nature but crazy enough to go offroad.
I just like driving, twice travelling around Australia, 10 weeks over all,33000 km, these experiences infected me so much that going on the OTT became my lifedream.
From this website I became the first time the Info that it might be a possibility to rent a vehicle for the OTT, until now I thought no one would hire u a car for this road, so I was convinced to buy one.
And that opened up a lot of questions. is it a good idea to buy it in Germany and ship it, yeah, that would make it easy to get it insured and registered, and I think a Hilux is much cheaper in Germany, but as in Germany no one needs an offroad vehicle so the offroad accessories here are rare and lower standard than in Australia, that starts up with a roof tent and the winch. Also I think the engines for Australia might be more stable as they are not that overloaded with accessories for lowering emissions. So you see, I do have millions of questions.
Can anybody support me by getting a hilux ute with winches, snorkel, a tray for camping and offroad staff and a good hifi, which I might kill on the OTT, (hopefully not) but in case I have a second plan, I could ship the rest of it to Germany to get all the staff used on a new one.
But is there anybody who could imagine to spend some time with one borne 1962, still in a good shape, just the small print is a problem, waiting for answers
