    It's funny really, because of my job i know roughly how much a new box is worth at cost, and they are nowhere near that much. The robbing gits.

    Well due to a family gathering I required a little more space on the drive, so I got to test the awd out, with very pleasing results......

    It's pretty steep as I've never manage to get the tractor mower up there in the dry, but Volvo conquered it in the wet ......

    Well despite some mixed weather last weekend the Ocean Race was drawn to the sea again for a little spur of the moment camping trip to the Welsh coast, she swallowed the load with ease when I packed far too much stuff for the one night, most of which I didn't use and needn't of taken in the first place. The only issue we had was that I forgot one set of poles for the tent which were still on the bench awaiting repair after last years York meet.....doh!.....we got by with out them, the tent just flapped a bit in the wind....lol

    the front of the tent should have the same pole set up as the back pictured here....lol

    Is there any weight in the back of your XC90 in that pic, ours always sits arse up, whereas your's looks more level. Though, with half a ton of cement in the back it drops down.

    I've not noticed this before Steve, I will no doubt be scrutinising every one I see now, to see how many have squatted down at the back, mine did have some stuff in it but not massively weighted down though.
