Its a TLC, not a landy, last trip I carried about 550litres & 250 l of water & all the other bits for a trip to the Gilf, yes very overweight when we headed off into the deep desert for a couple of weeks with no resupplying possible, but no probs with the Toyotas at all,
I had 9 jerries & roof tent up top, this trip Ive ditched the roof tent
& various other stuff to help reduce weight to help compensate for the extra fuel requirements.
I will probably donate some of the empty jerries to locals when I no longer need them to save carting them about
Mind you, ours was nothing compared to our guides car which carried 25, 20 litre jerries full of diesel on the roof, plus spare wheels, mattresses & bedding,, table etc etc and the inside of thier car was stuffed full too...............Their TLC was on bog standard suspension !!!,
Yes we did get stuck at times, especially when fully laden, but nothing major
I know that this is not ideal by any means, and some may say asking for trouble, but it doesnt take long to use the fuel when clawing through soft sand, and sensible driving is a must. plus, its a great feeling getting back to the UK still with cheap libyan (7p/litre) fuel in the tank!!
There a couple of photos attatched to show the cars when fully laden (thats if ive uploaded them correctly!)
