    Jim and I hiked to a beach camping spot in Colombia
    It is about an hour hike and you get to the secluded beach spot and you rent a tent that is already up

    Well it was about 38 C and tons of bugs...........may have been the worst night sleep I've ever had in my life

    Not to mention all the young kids all hooking up with hot ass tourists that made me jealous as hell 5555

    Wow.
    Some good posts here .

    Its recent history here on Phuket how Chinese were arriving with their new campers and the locals were quickly annoyed. 555
    They had to get the authorities up CM , CR way to put the mockas on that idea !
    I mean , them only eating out of 7/11 is bad enough , but who wants Chinese who dont even need to rent a room or catch a taxi ??? lol

    Like boats, there is no one perfect vehicle for all occasions. Campers are great in Canada where there is lots of wilderness, and you can be over 300 kilometers away from ANY accommodation. But, we seldom have the extreme heat that you get elsewhere in Asia and Australia.

    The pickups with accommodation are a great concept Hatari, never seen that before.

    ^ it's a strange concept ... like to know where they sourced the trucks from, all different models from same era

    Lots of new vehicles in Chiang Mai..... AND THE FUCKERS THINK THEY NOW HAVE THE RIGHT TO PARK THEM ON NARROW SOIS AND BLOCK THE ROAD!

    I'm turning into a grumpy old fart and have to keep reminding myself... Calm down, Ian. You aren't on a set time schedule. This is Thailand, and Thais think it's perfectly okay to inconvenience others. 555

    Hi all well i have been looking at cars online for sale in thailand all pie in the sky really but keeps my minf active , just wondering about getting a ute /pickup whatever people call them in there own country .Had a look at a few the toyota vigo , nissan navara ,mitsubishi triton ,ford ranger bit exxy all in the dual cab setup .
    A guy i follow on youtube has a nissan urvan done out as a mobile home type setup and i asked him if nissans were hard to get parts for , unfortunately he said yes i dont think he is mechanically minded or really wants to get his hands dirty ,anyway i showed the wife and her first reaction was ugly ugly i look at a vehicle for its practical uses not how pretty it is or who might look at me when im driving it . in my driving life i have owned two sedans both lasted a maximum of 6 months before i sold them .

    Now im not into these big wheeled devil dog machines that you see around as they are not for me and really ive owned 4wd vehicles and you dont really use it very much so two wheel drive is fine . Seeing nissan are a bit hard to get parts for according to this bloke toyota would be next just wondering what others drive , they would be second hand but ive noticed that the milage is pretty low on a lot of them ,when i was there last a guy in the next unit bloke from the wife used his car once in the month i was there ,of course this was in bangkok where at times it is quicker to walk than take the bus when it gets caught in peak hour traffic trying to get to victory monument on sirithorn road .

    Anyway what do thers drive as i said i look at a vehicle for its practical use not how pretty or flashy it is ?

    I think it depends on where you want to hang your hat in Thailand. If I was living in Bangkok I think it would be better to rent a vehicle any time you needed to take a trip with the family. Driving a car in Chiang Mai would be bad enough, but Bangkok would be a nightmare.

    Yes i dont see myself living in bangkok unfortuntley the wife works there at the moment , that is another thing i do is look at property around thailand and the price differences can be somewhat strange ,was just looking at the bt50 mazda and it is cheaper in thailand for a double cab 4x2 than it is here in au , i have to admit the engine is smaller than most of the others ,most are 2.5 and they run a 2.2 dont know if its a good or bad thing oh well keeps me mind active looking hahaha.

    Its not a good pic , but the grey ute on the right is what I drive.
    Like your neighbours I may take it out once or twice a month.
    Its a Chev Colorado 2.7 lt turbo diesel.
    I had the canopy put in in Songkla later on.
    It was a year old when I bought it in 2008..

    It had 13k on it , and IIRC it cost 388k baht.
    It now has 116k km on the speedo , so its done 103k km in 10 years.

    Its been a reliable and tough car , gets along very well if you wind it through the gears , and its only issue has been the clutch and not so much that it needed a clutch replaced at 80,000 , but that Chev fcuked up the fitting and so it gave me probs for a few months over my very periodical driving of it. It has a small amount of rust in the tailgate.
    In the days it was built , many of its parts were interchangeable with Isuzu , and that has been fortunate because Chev dealers are few and far between.

    So I wouldnt buy a Chev on that basis alone.
    So yes , I'd buy a ute again , in fact I have to in order to carry my Thai Ladies rental scooters on occasion .... but I'd buy Isuzu , Toyota or Nissan. 1 and a half or twin cab.
    The tg thinks its ugly/old , but Im of the "If it aint broke , why fix it ?" School.
    So it will do.

    In fact Im with IF above.
    If I lived in Bkk , I wouldnt own a car.
    Even now , I oftyen think I would be better off renting a car when I need it ( except for the tgs business ).
