Well, which one was it then? ;-)

Normally at this point I would dive in head first to sneer at the Jap-crapthat's been mentioned so far,bang on about how wonderful Land Rovers are and how brilliant the Disco 3 is (when it's working) but as the OP is a caravannist and has five stinking mutts (WHY??!) I wouldn't like to see such a wonderful vehicle subject to such treatment.

Therefore, my advice is - go for an Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne or BMW X5. :D

I dug-up this thread, searching for advice on 4x4s.

How the f8ck do LandRover do it? How can you make a Discovery and not have height adjustable seats? And how do you make such a big vehicle, with such a small amount of space inside?

The Freelander was worse, I'm too tall to drive one. I'm only 5' 11" and my eyeline is level with the top of the windscreen.

I think I'll stick with my original choice(s), SWB Patrol, Landcruiser or Trooper.

:D Must admit, if I had 5 mutts I'd be driving them 'round in a £500 banger.

I love the new Discos, much nicer lookers than the current Range Rover (which has been ruined by the sales rep 'Sport' model). :love:

Still,a good 90% ofroad-going 4WDs are huge and unnecessary Tonka trucks - IMO, YMMV etc.
