I'm looking for a second hand overland truck in south/eastern Africa.. Is there any places or websites I can find these types of trucks?
I have to fit a music recording studio in it, so it has to be big
How about a converted Man ex-military 4x4 truck with just about everything you could possibly need. Already has the power supply. Sleeps 8 people I think. Tent on the roof. Boat, lifts down by crane from the roof. Quad bike. And lots more goodies. Certainly big enough to be a studio.
It's in Johannesburg at the moment.
Message me, and I'll give you the contact details.
the main UK disposal agent is well guilty of this, pedalling vehicles as good runners that couldn't even pass an MOT due to massive structural corrosion, so be careful!! The guide prices they give on their website for auction stuff is way over market value and because it is a bid by tender, it is impossible to know how much you should bid to secure your beauty, or if you should bid on more than one to be sure, it is a very crap system!!
Wow, thanks guys. I´ll check the things out. Please do inform about that truck in Cape town ´surfer´! And Jeff, I can´t PM you because I have too little posts... But maybe you can email me? it´s - removed due to spammers, but have sent you email address by pm for you - ]. Thanks, by the way, I really dont think I need a quad bike and a boat, lol, it doesnt even have to be a 4x4, cause its just driving from capital to capital...
We have some designs for a nissan patrol with sound and video suites in them. We were going to do Africa and film and edit on the run. Our gig rigs unforutnatley never got funded. So we opted for big SAMAG trucks but i think that would be far to big!
question is do you have to only take 1 vehicle and must it be combined for sleeping and recording?
We also had an external both for recording designed. So there are ways around having a huge truck.
If a Mog's too small the Pinzi will be too; it's even smaller.
Capital to capital? Surely the best and most natural music is found out in the boondocks where there's slightly less Western influence (mind you however far you go, you'll find a local listening to music on a hissy, tinny little radio)
I was on one of his trips so I know the guy and the truck.
He was trying to sell it for about £10k (including business and website), but I know that thebuyer recently (6wks ago) pulled out and I think a reasonable and genuine offer would not be refused.
Tim is now living in Holland, the truck is safe parked in Ghana.
