If you canít justify spending the money, thatís fine. You may need to get 30years or constant use to see the value, thatís only because $90k is a lot of money to you.

Wouldn't $90 grand be considered a lot of money by the big majority of people?

Yes, but that's not the point. For some people, it's not a lot of money, so they're quite happy to drop $90k (or much more) on a 4wd, then head towards the horizon and see where they end up. Having a brand new, state of the art, off road 4wd helps them enjoy their time - they're not spending all day every day worried about its depreciation. If it has Toyota badges it may not be depreciating that much anyway.

Agree. You'd be pleasantly surprised at how much some of the builds that come out from Boss aluminium or patriot campers cost. Cost becomes quite subjective. And some of these guys actually use it as it's meant to based on their instagram accounts. At the end of day, spend money towards what makes you happy. It's not like we can take it all when we leave.

There have been a few reviews on this particular product...

https://www.productreview.com.au/p/iveco-daily-4x4.html
https://expeditionportal.com/forum/t...-fails.192087/

There are a few question about this vehicle in regards to these reviews, but a couple came into work with one that had a camper on the back.

That story again just makes me wonder what is this world is coming to.. half of a 4wd is pure marketing & not designed for longterm offroad use. Life is too short for that nonsense.

Until Toyota make a real civilian 79 dualcab that can carry 800KG in tray over 1000's KM of corrugations with enough leg room in second row for adults I will never touch a new 4WD.

Yes, I have to agree with you there, but this is a conversation that I have been having with members of my 4wd club..

Setting the iveco up with a whole setup on the back to me is completely nuts, just how commercial touring is sickens me. Basically putting a caravan on the back. Might aswell be virtual outdoors. As if the stock vehicle alone didn't cost enough, all that work & money for a vehicle that probably will last just 15years of touring before it needs to be disposed of?

To me personally no matter what setup you can put on the back of the iveco costing hundreds of thousands, it won't come close to a good camper trailer which is a fraction of the cost.
also its said this thing will go anywhere, again really? Will it go in some serious rutty offroad tracks with all that setup routinely? My guess is within 100meters something will break costing 1000s.

My only interest with the this was to have a basic canopy, drifta style kitchen with all my gear thrown in the back for a mostly full external basecamp, for times when camper trailers can't be taken. Not even the 79 singlecab can do it. It's grossly outdated 1200KG payload is really only 700+ after the tray & alloy canopy are added.

No matter what you do, touring is far too professional & the actual real enjoyable camping is non existent.
