Donna already mentioned it in her report about her trip to Chilliwack.
The very last 5.0 Classic-Single Axle is SOLD, well maybe not tha last VIN number but at least as the actual last 5.0 Classic to leave the factory grounds.
and this baby goes to The Netherlands!
So that map on the wall in Chilliwack needs to be extended with a little piece.
This is the start of a journey with lots of hurdles.
1st hurdle to take is the shipping, we found Reace willing to put the 5.0 in a container and make sure it getīs secured in the proper way.
2nd hurdle to take will be to get i legalized overhere, 5th wheels are not to common overhere and we need to get a legal brake controller, replace the kingpin with a legalized type, adapt/change the lights to the legal standards and then some things.
3rd hurdle will be to get a Tow Vehicle with a 5th wheel hitch, again a road with some bumps overhere.
But we have our eyes on a beautifull Toyota HiLux.
Last but not least we will need to do something in order to make sure the fridge doesn't blow up when we hook the trailer up to our mains, beeing 230V instead of 110V.
Anyway, we look forward to our new 5.0 and the adventures with it to come. 8)
We will keep you posted in the process of getting the trailer overhere etc.
