I spotted this Isuzu Fargo 4WD camper when I was out and about today – it’s a Japanese import and is an unusual sight in the UK. The Isuzu base vehicle looks to be very similar to the old Toyota Townace / Liteace and it’s pretty compact for a coachbuilt motorhome – it doesn’t show in the picture, but the parking bay was pretty narrow. A nearby Ford Transit didn’t fit between the lines.
Its licence plate made it about 20 years old, but Japanese imports are always in above average condition (low mileage and no corrosion, thanks to no salt on the roads in winter) and although it looked dated it also looked pretty tidy. Four wheel drive could come in handy on muddy campsites, especially as it had suitable tyres, too.
A quick Google reveals that more of these are imported to Australia and New Zealand than the UK – Isuzu is a much bigger name in the light truck sector down under than it is here (yet).
