That’s A Big One!

This is Edwin’s whopper of a rig, a Mk4 3.8 V6 Pajero tugging a Flagstaff caravan. He tells me the Paj is 4.9m and the caravan is 9.9m (including A-frame). By my calculations that makes a massive 14.8m in total, or about 48 feet. Try doing a 3-point turn with that! “Tows like a dream though”.

Edwin, Pajero and Caravan

And this is no ordinary caravan, he’s currently converting it. Here are the specs so far:

5 cameras (1x rear Paj , 1x front Caravan , 1x rear  , 1x view over door area for nights & 1x Black water waste (so I can see at what point to stop when dumping waste )
7′ GPS  floating in from  dash & 10.2 inch (switching) camera monitor on drivers sunvisor Etc …
that way I am able to see the que of traffic behind me , need it with that thing hanging off my Arse ( Ooooops …posterior )

Oh did I mention my pull down 69″ screen & DLP projector & computer desk in the van , yea I know ..real overkill …typical Edwin ..nothing 1/2 measure

Pajero and Caravan

Thanks for sharing Edwin, and watch out for those dips in the road!

  1. This black detail on the front bumper, front radiator grills and hood with the nameplate Pajero fit very well. Where is this Pajero from?

      Perhaps Edwin could answer if he reads this.
