    WTD - family appropriate (2 small kids, 2 adults) shit hauler ~$5k

    planing on coming out to Aust in Jan with the fam, and will be in NSW for 2 weeks from the 26th october

    looking to get a car/ute/suv/something in that time, which ill park at my old mans, and will be ready to go for arrival of the troops from OS in Jan

    needs to run reliably for 3 months, needs to be sellable again (ideally quick and for minimal loss*) at the end of that

    would be good if it was camping appropriate (maybe a dualcab ute?) or a wagon/suv? dunno, not being picky

    what's on offer?

    based in syd/bathurst/orange. will travel or transport for the right car

    cheers
    ed

    *may be a little optimistic

        This may be the time when the AU on gas comes into it's own!
        Although I'd probably look more an a BF-II or even BF-III, and forget the gas.
        I don't think that if I had a family I'd want them on country roads in any dual-cab I could get for $5k, and if you're planning on driving for more than half an hour at a time the thought of being stuck in a 1988 Rodeo is pretty horrific.
        If you can stomach operating one on country roads (I'm guessing that for a short holiday the inability to overtake won't kill you), you'll get a 2nd-gen RAV4 for that sort of money, doubt it'd be too hard to sell after (but others may disagree).
        Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

            Can't you hire something for about $5 over three months. Drive, abuse, return?

              Another vote for the Terry, just like the Falcon only a bit taller......

              And would be easier to get than a Falcon Wagon as everyone on PF has snapped them up and put them into storage for the inevitable exponential value increases just around the corner.....

                      subaru is definately a contender havig surfed carsales last night
                      falcon/falcon ute also rated a double look
                      i hadnt considered a territory, will go have a look after work

                      anyone PF have something they want to offload? rather keep funds in the family than deal with fuckwits no gumtree

                      and rental - yeah, ive done it once for 3 weeks, but fuck 3 months. rather buy a car for $5k and burn it to the ground when im done with it

                          I’ve got a 323i e91. Great boot space and more comfort than jap cars.

                          It’s about to advertise for 10k and pf price is 8k as I’m picking up upgrade on Monday..

                            Subaru wagons seem to be the backpacker car of choice these days.
