Land Rovers
« on: December 14, 2015, 08:23:31 AM »
Hey guys I'm kinda new around here on the RV scene but not new at all to wheeling. Any of you guys and girls been bitten by the Rover bug yet? All I see here are Jeeps. I've been working on Rovers since the fall of my first home Oldsmobile.

I've been working on Rovers.

Isn't that the biggest part of wheeling with a Rover...you're always working on it...:)

Had I known that I would be getting a Class A motor home a few years after I bought my LR-2, would not have bought it.  Can't flat tow or tow dolly because of full time 4 wheel drive.  Can ony trailer, which becomes a problem when getting a site.  Also, while I love the little car, it is very expensive to fix and don't know that I would ever want to take it 4 wheeling.

I have a LR2 for my wife. It's got the 2.0 turbo direct injection engine. Kind of wish it was an older model with the 6 cyl. These trucks are very much Volvo. I have to get some diagnostic tools from the Volvo side of the dealership I work at. Wire colors are Volvo, the engine and drivetrain are volvo. But also very similar to the Ford Escape cause they owned all three companies at the time. It's great in the snow but I'm with you on not wheeling with it. I have a 99 Discovery SD for that. The original Disco, not the one BMW destroyed.

This board confuses me. I always quote the wrong person.
