Certainly not bragging - It's like admitting you have a disease!

If I had all the money I spent on Rovers back in my bank ... I'd be out in my Airstream, not behind a desk at work!

Do you know why the British never built computers?




They couldn't figure out how to make them leak oil.

But we did love our Land Rovers (3).

I thought this would be a joke about the sizes of the fuses required to run it.

Still darn good.

It is a Love Hate relationship

No we do not use a LR as a tow vehicle on our AS. However we do have the hate love relationship w/owning LR's. Currently have DISCO 11, NAS D90, and 84 Series 111 88" RH driver under restoration.

Safe travels

Land Rover and Airstream..perfect

This is my 4th LR which I picked up almost 1.5 years ago. Iíve put 24k miles on it so far and just the usual maintenance and never left me stranded. I will admit she works hard in the hills of the smoky mountains but kept a good pace and never ran hot.

Towing miles, Iíve put just over 1800 miles and will start a 1k trek from Northern Kentucky to Bonita Springs FL after Christmas.

Plan spring/summer trek form Florida to Denver.

I would prefer the grap a RRS diesel but waiting for the right one with price/options and certified. But the LR3 is a keeper, shes a good looking rig in my opinion.Click image for larger version

7 months on the road and 4,300 towing miles over 148,000 ft of mountain passes we’ve taken our 2017 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Dynamic, towing our 2017 International Signature 27FB Twin loaded up with 600W of solar and 600Ah of LiFePO4 batteries. No issues of note, no code brown incidents, just happy smooth towing. Ignored the dire warnings of doom and gloom from the HD pickup truck crowd, tow at reasonable speeds (55-65mph), and looking forward to many more years of happy and comfortable full-time living.

We’ve also run into a few people in our travels also towing with Rovers:
- Crested Butte: L405 Range Rover LWB Supercharged towing 27’ Airstream
- Durango: L494 Range Rover Sport Diesel towing 25’ FB Airstream
- Sedona: LR3 towing 23’? Airstream
- Encinitas: LR4 V6 towing 25’ Airstream
- Malibu: L405 Range Rover LWB Supercharged towing 27’ FB

And we’ve seen other ‘non-traditional’ tow vehicles:
- Infinity QX80 towing 27’ FB
- Mercedes R320 Diesel towing 30’ Classic (was clearly setup at CanAM)
- Hummer classic here at Malibu towing what appears to be a 27’

Any complex/high end SUV is a crap shoot if it will be a gem, or unreliable. I have friends with Ram/Ford trucks whom have reliability problems, even when they never to anything.

Is the Toyo probably more reliable/less maintenance? yea. Personally, can't hang with Lexus styling.. with that said, I can't hang with some of the new LR styling.

A 3/4 ton pickup would be nice to have on long hauls and in terrible conditions.. A Ram is on my short list if/when we full time. But there is no denying the comfort, packaging, and capability that suits our lifestyle best with the RR. There are also some technical trails that a full size truck simply could not make it on.

My only wish is for the TDV8 diesel for greater range.. But for now, I never lack for power with 470 lb/ft and 510HP. We manage 11 MPG average with my off road 33" tires, roof rack and crap on it, 1.5" lift on RR, and 3" lift on AS, while nearly always being in/near mountains and hills.
Love the pictures and all the adventure. Reminds me of my favorite times enjoying nature at its best.

No disrespect for this thread and RR/LR owners, and I don't believe this would sway those owners as they seek qualities that the LC/LX may not offer. But you'd be more than surprised at the capability of the LC. I have 33s on mine as well which are a conservative fitment. And they are designed for a 25yr service life in the roughest of conditions.

Different angle to consider w/no disrespect. Many if not all that have or had AS's more than likely pick AS as it is the "Icon" in the industry and has been from its birth. Land Rover is of the same "Icon" status/following. Land Rover from birth is different than most vehicles w/the exception of Jeep. LR's went from work trucks to the start of creature comforts starting in 1987 w/the Range Rover Classic. Land Rover did not or has not abandon their birth DNA even w/to days model range.

Best regards and safe travels

No disrespect taken. I'm here on this thread because I do love LR and RRs. I think we can absolutely agree their style is unmatched. The epitome of the range for me is the Land Rover Defender 110. If only I could get my hands on one, restored with a modern engine and drivetrain. Like I said, I have myself a needy iconic European vehicle, in the form of a 911 Turbo. So I get the draw of such cars. I tinker with them endlessley.

In regards to vehicles with iconic legacy, I'll say that I am surprised that you are suggesting that the Land Cruiser is not? Most car aficionados would agree it's an off-road legend in its own right. Perhaps not as much in the US, but if you look to the rest of the world...

Enough said, and the intent wasn't to suggest it as anything better. We're all looking to enjoy the outdoors in the same way. Off the beaten path if possibe. The beauty in all this is we are all fortunate enough to have choice in how we go about our travels. I enjoy seeing all your rigs, so back on topic, let's see more RR/LRs doing their thing!

Hello and back at you. Intent was to tell some history of the LR's. Would agree LC's have history as well. Been a Porsche person from the 60's, starting w/the tubs. Me I am an air cooled 911 die heart, outlaws as well. There are many suppliers out there that do retro Defender 110's. Get your check book out. Like PCA there is also a culture and following on LR's. I had an early post in this thread as we have 3 LR's ages 1984 to 2000. Problem is we have a 2016 classic and unless you have a 101 forward control nothing in the LR family will safely tow.

Best regards, happy hunting, and safe travels..........

Have towed with an NAS D110, and D130. Neither ideal tugs for a 34'.
