After some great discussion with a trailer manufacturer we have agreed on the design of a trailer to tow behind the motorhome.

In lots of ways it is based on a tradies style of trailer but with lots of extras to our design.

Build will be over four weeks so will have it for the next COG.

The truck is off for it’s first full service on Wednesday. 

After having to get the Landcruiser serviced every 10,000 klm I was surprised that the service schedule on this one is every 12 months or 48,000 klm whatever comes first.

Hope I won’t need to take a mortgage out on the house to pay for it.  Grin Grin Grin

Big disappointment today.

Dropped the truck off at the Fiat Dealer @ 9.30 for the service and said they could keep it all day.

Got a call from them about 2.00 saying sorry they were unable to do it as they didn’t have the right oil.

Seems that you have to use a special Fiat oil that comes from Italy to maintain the warranty.

They will call me when they get some in.

Might pay you to take a bit of that oil with you on your travels.

I actually have a litre bottle of Penrite Oil in the trailer that I was told was the right one in case I needed to top up.

Have heard of lots of reasons for companies trying to get out of warranty but never in regards to using their brand of oil.

Finally got the service done today. I gave the other mob the flick and went to the East Coast Fiat Commercial Dealers at Acacia Ridge.

Got the right oil this time  Shocked
