Morocco Overland routes - vehicle size limits
Hi All (Chris?)
I'm off to Morocco in April (for 10 weeks) and have been looking at the routes in the Morocco Overland Book. I was wondering if there are any routes that I will not be able to do.
I have a Defender 127 Ex MOD Ambulance (hopefully pic is attached).
It has the same track width as any defender, but at the rear has vertical sides up to 2.7m, the full width of the vehicle (ie no arches). Total length about 5.2m. I was wondering about tight hairpins and rock overhangs.
I've read the section in the book about vehicles and not sure if I fit the description of a 'small truck' and should therefore avoid routes MA1, 3, 6, 7, and MH5 as suggested on p38. What do you think?
Vehicle is well prepared, with new HD springs, twin shocks all round, underbody protection etc. With full tanks it weighs near its limit of 3.4 tons.
