That was euros but still. The VIN is in both ads. Wasn't sure if this guy was a US reseller for these.

it seems the US-Defender.com is authorized to sell or is a sales agent to River House Mini.

Converting the euros to Dollars, it is 63k compared to 85k..

I am guessing the shipping of the car and duty fees and lets say 10% to 15% commission fees is included in the 85K but you still have to pay taxes towards the 85k after purchasing it..

They are? I saw this truck went to Switzerland but it's on this site listed with the same vin but now a v8.



I'm not against them selling these trucks, I just wasn't sure if they were indeed selling them or showing the pics as they will create the same thing.

From looking at their website, they have posted pictures of cars for sale from the Mini House back yard.. Almost all photos are from holland..

I think No one is against it, for sure I am not. Everyone has the right to do what ever they wish hoping they are straight forward with information..

I dont see that they are creating the same vehicle. US-Defenders must have some sort of connection with Mini House, like a middle man that has taken care of the shipping, duty fees and etc..

Same truck but what a difference in price. 55k and 85k?

It was priced at 55000 euro excl freight and shipping , at todays rate that is roughly 64000 usd plus about 5000 in shipping, handling, import and clear US title.

Anyway, it is sold and delivered.

This is a very nice Landy! You guys didn't miss a beat on this one. I've never seen one quite like this. This is definitely my fav, so far! Thanks for posting.

US-Defender.com is not a sales agent from RiverHouse. They bought one truck from us, but probably needed some pictures to fill their website.

I prefer to deal direct with end customers to keep the price down.
