As always, my intention is to keep em long term so i do all the maintenance up front.

However, i've learnt to never say never (as i do like a new challenge every now and again) - but it cant go until i at least show it Wales and the Lake District.

Thanks Steve, but a bit too aggressive for me - i'm holding out for BFG AT's.

Testing the new AT's (clearly, not deep here, but managed to find a few snow drifts on route).

Ah, yes, this is the 7 seat version of the SWB Shogun.

Well, what can i say - the SWB Shogun was brilliant at pulling an 1800Kg caravan - loads of power, very stable (even in the various storms with very high winds) - but, just not enough space inside/in the top box for the entire contents of the house that we seemed to "need" when going away in the van (according to Lin).

So - waved goodbye to it this morning, its off to a new home.

However, replaced with the following (as i missed the old one) - i'm sure there still wont be enough space inside this one, but short of a full on van, Lin will have to be satisfied.
