Yep, been done with Landrovers. I'm sure someone else could be more helpful.

Eurocraft used to display one of there white water rafts at the boat shows with a Volvo 740 inside it. The advetising blub also pointed out the raft would go inside the 740 too.

They used to use large Avons in the Camel Trophy event to cross lakes and rivers - would carry a 110 Defender no problem.

What an event - anyone who watched one couldn't fail to be impressed with Land Rovers - wish they would bring it back.

Some awesome videos here - good old youtube.

Watching the original Range Rover in action is awesome - 8 jerrycans on the roof and a load of other kit - high speed driving across rough ground - on 2 wheels and they still don't go over!!!



No doubt one of these videos will show them using the boats - will post the link if I find it.
