If I could afford a new Discovery every few years I would probably do the same!

I think we will be ok for a while yet, landrover seem to be concentrating on the models that make them money, so defenders should be left alone, hopefully

The first RIB (but the 2nd Range Rover) was on page 14.

E-reg 4 door which I converted to diesel. Bit gutless.
"Top Banana" probably the best RIB I've had. 6m Osprey / 150 Opti.

Photo from about 2002

I cant find a photo of the first or third rangie's towing a RIB

But here they are. The four door (1984 A reg, one of the first) I owned in about 1997.

My first range rover was the 1973 "ONM 146M" which we, er, modified slightly. Photo about 1996 as I think I'd passed my test the same year.

So then from about 2004 to 2010 I had a break from RIBs and land rovers.

Strangly enough aquired both again within a year of each other.

Even the landie cant tow this one though, too heavy :-( You need something like piccy No 3
