After much messing around, cleaning the expanda, doing some repairs that I had been putting off, we have decided to keep the Expanda, not really ready to buy another van and would be settling for something if we change now.
Long time since I've done any mods to the old girl, but since we have completed nearly 50,000kms it was time to put some new shoes on, particularly since the old ones were scrubbed and I spiked one on the way to Qld. Decided to go with the Maxxis 980 Bravo AT. It is more aggressive than the original tyres but I wanted a slightly less road biased tread without going full mud.
Have used the McHitch a couple of times now, it is a one person job to hook up and unhook now, no need to have some one guide me. Unhooked easily on the odd angle that is our driveway, no more binding up
