hi Mark, we couldn't afford a huge F truck or preferably a dodge ram, the price of them down here is ridiculous. Plus I wanted to be able to take a 2nd vehicle with us for the missus if we stop somewhere along the way for an extended period of time or there is some sort of emergency. I really wanted a dual cab, but at the time of purchase we were on the other side of Oz and had to pick the caravan up and get home. So we found the one pictured, bought it and put the missus car we drove over with on the back and picked up the van. I am looking at selling this one plus my old motorhome (bus) that I am fixing up and hoping to be able to purchase a 4x4 dual cab Isuzu truck. My preference is a NPS300 4wd dual cab. little bit smaller with the 155hp engine but will still pull the van fine. I can also be able to go off road with the truck and see the hard to get to parts of Oz.
The truck is a FRR500 single cab, but still fits myself, missus, daughter and the dog in ok. It's only a 175hp engine, but being Isuzu it is strong. The suspension being all heavy duty spring front and rear is a bit stiff, but isn't too bad. Apparently you can get different spring set-ups to make for a more comfortable ride or the best option I've seen another small Isuzu truck owner with 5th wheeler do is a full air bag conversion. Though I highly doubt I could afford either. Heck the drivers seat if a suspension seat, and with a load on the truck rides better.
