Well ...

After much deliberation and looking at allot of different trucks, including the one posted above, I had the chance of exchanging information with the builder and owner of this truck :

http://www.rovingdentist.com/index.html

And the only thing right now preventing me from pulling the trigger is engine choice. The 101 came with the 3.5 witch weigh in at 300lbs, now if I want to go diesel I dont know where to go ... 3.0 International would be my primary choice but a Cummins would also be cool but have a hard time to choose witch one, anybody have an idea they want to share ?

Also, question for Mike (from ECR) you did one of those in the past, how did you like it (driving it and working on it)

Thanks !

Pat

Well, that Yellow 101 truck we did now lives in Long Island and the guy loves it, but it is not his primary transport. Rumors that it rolled at an event in Canada are incorrect. A Yellow 101 did roll up there, but it was not the one we built.

I had fun driving it, but it is not a truck I would have liked long term. It was fun driving it like driving my dune buggy is fun. On the right day it is the best, but I couldn't take it for long on the road. I would not want a 101 to own, but is just my opinion.

The dash on the 101 was a PITA the capillary lines from the gauges meant you could only move the dash as few inches and you needed more to work on it.
The other PITA was getting parts. A lot of stuff we needed to order all was NLA and that was years ago. The specific 101 parts were very hard to find even back then.

Its a personal choice. I had fun driving it, but I was glad it wasn't mine. I'm a Defender guy...

Not sure if that helps or not.

I love Land Rovers, but it seems like you'd be better off with a MOG in this class of vehicle..

I don't think capacity will be a problem, but those aren't Mogs..

Those are actually trucks manufactured by MAN Nutzfahrzeuge - MAN Truck & Bus UK Ltd. I actually saw some of these when I was deployed to Iraq. We all took a picture in the front of one of the truck's grills because their logo is "MAN". We thought it was funny....but then again 12 months without TV will make you laugh at anything. The website is here: http://www.man-mn.co.uk/en/en.jsp

a good example can be seen in the left picture here: http://www.man-mn.co.uk/en/Fascinati...nation_MAN.jsp

Thanks Gren ! I did see that one on eBay UK.

As for Mogs, I still have to come across one that isn't the size of a monster truck and/or asking price is above 30k and still need a camper conversion.

Still have my eyes open for anything but I really don't want something that big.

As for MAN trucks, I saw them at the Dakar and wow if budget wasn't a problem I would be all over that.

Pat

A few pics of a camper converted Pinz taken @ zebrabar campsite on the banks of the senegal river feb 07 this was a fab vehicle the couple had traded in their mog as it was too slow, being limited to 55mph they traveled in the pinz from austria to africa every 6-8 months or so then toured for a few months before returning.

the photo of the all white truck in my last post is a mitsubushi 4x4 truck and is actually smaller than a 101.

At first glance, I thought the pic in the middle was a garbage truck !
