Just bought a year 2013 used Navara 3 litre double cab and canopy 4x3 5 spd automatic. ex lease, 58,000km .

Bought to replace a Mercedes camper van, Toyota Corolla, and my old Çamel' : 1994 Hilux flat deck.
Will be used for general running and to tow a 5m caravan ( at realistic speeds up hills! )

I guess I will have questions here from time to time :)

Hi Whistler.

North Island, Warkworth - about 1 hour north of Auckland City.

Whakatane - Big game fishing in the Bay of Plenty ? A lovey spot with its own active volcano! lol


Spending the day here reading the Navara Owners Manual' - but next project is to modify the caravan to 'self contained' status. Far more flexibility for freedom camping in NZ.

Yes, fished White Island. We would anchor there. Which side depended on which side the wind was blowing. Lots of volcanic ash.
Left on 30 of December,arrived there January 1. No New Years Eve!
Great country!
