    Missed one going the other way on Beach Road this morning.
    Distinctive dark coloured pop top and maybe signwriting on the side.

    You don't see that compo especially the one in the front towing the one in the back. If it was two jaguars:eek: you expect to carry your own spares by having to tow complete second spare car.
    T4 that bad :(o_O:eek:

    Now I'd be pretty convinced that the towed weight exceeded that of the towing vehicle even with more glass in the towed one;). That be not correct in NSW:(. Imagine trying to stop that in an emergency:oops:.
    I 'liked' it & then 'unliked' it as I don't want to encourage stupidity that I didn't do!

    Reckon the reason for that rule is so they don't swap ends as you stop but I'm guessing the pirouette must stop somewhere & that not be healthy for other road users:mad:.

    Braked towing capacity on a T4 is 2000kg (depending on model/spec).
    So perhaps a little over depending the trailer weight.

    Most commercial vehicles will have a towing capacity higher than the vehicle weight provided the trailer has brakes. The regulations are quite specific, so need to understand the rules in detail to make sure your legal. It also varies state to state.

    T4's are good buying at the moment, stick a few in the back yard and sell off in 10 years time :D

    Compare the sale prices of a 92 T3 to a 93 T4. :eek:

    Hard to tell if the first of the forward engine, front wheel drive Kombis will actually be worth storing for 10 years.....o_O

    If you go that path, look for 98 onward T4’s, that had the earlier issues sorted. ;)

    I "upgraded" to T3's as I never expected them to go the way of T1 and T2 kombi's in terms of cost to buy.....
    T4 do have a good following in the UK. Not sure about USA.
    T4 Syncro's are about also if you keep your eyes open, and ex Ambulance ones had a rear diff lock!!

    Would a T4 last ten years in storage.:confused::rolleyes: little loan worth more in ten years,Like any long term investment you never know unless you do it to find out.
