Beamish kin, all reports I have now just read are saying its rubbish. Shame as I like the look. I really don't like the styling of the Japanese
cars but seems I may have to sensible for now until I can afford my monster truck

Can't realy beat Japanese vehicles which is a shame as landrover had such a head start but didnt keep the edge like they should have done . Unfortunately British isnt best anymore

Yes, yes, yes
Before the Amazon I had a 3.0ltr Surf. Sold it with 176k, current owner now has over 200k on the clock and it still performs great!
I fitted a new head @ 125k but apart from that it was faultless!

(And yes, a new trailer is on its way)!!
What was rated at 1100kg? If it was the trailer then that's fine since the trailer will weigh more than 120kg itself and the axles will be designed to cope with that total weight. If it was the axles...then change them for stronger ones

Family has one in Cyprus, apart from the turning circle I thought it was ok. Always fun up the Troodos Mountains

But I wouldn't go for a jacked up car like the L200, I mean the seating position, being quite tall I like the disco leg room between the seat and the floor
