And it's all legal I have the engineering certificate.

best part about it being classed as a truck is a lot of car regulations don't apply.

Wish my '86 2.5 diesel could do that! She's got 267,000 kms. on the clock, and her first 5 or 6 years were as a construction machinery cargo van... then the guy who used to drive it bought it from his boss, and converted it to a camper... I got it off him 4 years ago - with 240,000 something on it - and have travelled all over Spain - mostly bike meets - since.... She's taught me to stay in the slow lane, and wave BIGGER trucks on by!!! (Not used to going so slow... but then again, not used to NEVER breaking down, either! My Ducati Darmah just won't let me sleep peacefully!)
