I notice Ford now offer a 4x4 version [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

At 35 grand for the base vehicle a finished motorhome will be rather expensive, does anyone offer one yet?

Not quite answering your question, but VW have a similar shocking price to add 4x4 to their base vehicles too.

At £3k it doesn't look toooo bad, until you realise that they force you to have the 180bhp twin-turbo engine option as well, which brings the total to nearly £5k! If you want the DSG box too that's a total of around £6.5k. I did think about ticking those option boxes - for a fraction of a second...

Four wheel drive Transits have been around for quite a while. The emergency services use them.

I remember the old high riding ones, this newer version passed me by until the coal man was telling me about his new version. Introduced in 2011 I think.

A bit off subject but AS did make a few 4WD Talisman Vans when the Talbot Express was the main chassis. I did know of one in ASOC anyone on here got one
