Hi All, after 2.5 years of ownership I'm considering a change.

98k miles
Galvanised chassis plus upgrades below. Lots of history and invoices. Regularly use and runs very well.

Worst point is the roof which has lacquer peel and a few dents here and there on the body panels.

Since I bought from a forum member I have done the following:

New LED's all round - originals available although headlights were crap
New grill - original also available
New wooden steering wheel - original available
New stereo with reversing cam added - think I chucked the replacement
Proper check over involving various new bits and pieces to sort a stalling issue
Removed heavy and useless LPG tank
New double S stainless steel cat back sports exhaust which sounds amazing
Replaced headliner but it is sagging again so will get that redone if there is any interest on here
Added a lot of sound proofing dodomat which has made it pretty civilised inside
New BFGs
Added spacers
Back on Original wheels
Removed spare wheel carrier - still available just didn't want to carry that weight all the time

I have added a few miles each year as a weekend toy but recently have been towing my daughter's dinghy to and fro so mileage creeping up. I think a better long-distance cruiser needed hence thinking of selling but I also know I will regret it hence the half-hearted query on this forum.

Paid 25,000 in 2021, spent about 4k on her since so with the galvanised chassis, being under 100k miles (98k at the moment) and with a few tasteful upgrades I'm hoping for offers around 32k.
Tomb Raider 90 rusting on the drive but I'm fighting back - Sold to Scotland - fair thee well
Loving the experience of GB 296
