Strating to look around for a retirement bakkie for long term camping. Isuzu KB 250 base (good looking bakkie), is on special at vR 235 000 inc VAT, but oh the specs, only producing 58kw at 390 revs and 176 torque at 1800 revs and this on a 2,5 liter diesel turbo.

Are there any member on this forum that is using this verhicle to there satisfaction in terms of towing and caravaning ?

Commends please

Price is good but would'nt touch it for towing unless its a Venter trailer. Are those figures correct? Only 58kW and not even 200Nm???

Neewat het laasjaar 2 van daai bakkies se stelsels gedoen met batterye en moes albei ry, kom nie eers solo weg nie wat nog van karavaan sleep. Regte donkie. Ek het op stadium selfs die 3 liter gaan ry en selfs die 4x4 dag gaan deelneem.. eish.. 

MAAR, as die prys vir jou werk vir wat jy kry, dan is dit maar seker soos die manne wat met die Chinese goed ook tevrede is vir die prys wat hul betaal???

Hi Lance. Ek het n fleetline swaar gelaai gesleep met n GWM 2.5 diesel. Het n 2.5 Isuzu motor in.  Dit is nie n resies kar maar glo my ek self is vrek verbaas met sy vermoë. Nee wat perfek vir n sleep voertuig om die hammering te vat. Selfs n hele paar ander bekende bakkies agter gelaat en dit vir minder as die helfte goedkoper as die meer bekende bakkies. Toets hom, hak en sleep, besluit dan.

As jy op pensioen is, is daar mos nie tyd wat jou jaag nie.

 

As jy wil he jou drome moet waar word, moet jy eers wakker word.

Lance was looking at the 2,5 base model.   There is a higher spec 2,5 delivering 100KW and 320Nm torque.  It depends on what you want to pay.

Ek sal jou aanraai om die voertuig te gaan toets bestuur en indien hulle 'n demo het sleep jou wa met hom tenminste teen 'n stewige opdraande.

Dan as hy vir jou werk koop hom.  Maak net seker hy kan die joppie maklik gedoen kry.  Want dis nie nodig om 'n Mercedes bakkie se prys te betaal as jy gemaklik kan regkom met 'n Isuzu nie.

Proof of the pudding lies in the eating.  As die goedkoper item die werkie net so goed doen is dit mos nie nodig om n duur Tipper te gaan koop nie.
