I'm looking at options fr a bigger vehicle (the missus wants a bit more comfort than my landcruiser 60 can offer!!)
One of these is definitely in the frame as a cheaper alternative to a unimog and smaller than a regular truck.
What kind of fuel consumption are people getting with these? I know chris was saying on his site about 8.5mpg has been quoted but I am interested what people are getting in the real world?

Soon, I will be able to offer a complete set of 10 factory service manuals in English on CD-ROM.

If anyone is interested, please let me know by email.
Long shot, but has anybody has the repair manual in English?

MAN 8.136 PTO Instructions

Anybody out there have instructions for the PTO driven winch on an Ex-Danish 8.136 4x4? I got power @ the controller all the way to the winch box but no movement of the winch when switching the hand controller in/out. I can see the "switch" changing polarity on the winch box and movement of the plunger and the dash light comes on and both air actuators are working. I know I'm just missing something silly.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
