Getting away from it all takes a special kind vehicle. A vehicle capable of many things. A vehicle that can be a comprehensive tow vehicle one moment, an off road explorer the next, and still be comfortable enough for a quick trip into town to pick up supplies.
The beauty of living in the South Island is that there are still many places far off the beaten track. These places, for those in the know, are well worth the hardship of getting to them. These days though, vehicles like the Isuzu D-Max and Isuzu MuX mean that the trip is a whole lot more comfortable, and safer, than it ever used to be, even towing a massive caravan!
We recently caught up with new Isuzu customer Richard Holland out at Rabbit Island with his new Isuzu D-Max and very large, and very nice home away from home - a twin axle 2 tonne Southern Star Caravan.
We stopped in on our way back from picking up Bowater Isuzu salesman James' horse and horse float in the new Isuzu 7 seater SUV, the Isuzu MuX.
The timing was perfect for an old fashioned rest area stopover, a good old cup of tea and biscuits kind of affair. The kind of stop we all used to have back when car trips were quite the adventure, and required a stop for a cup of tea every couple of hours!
The good folks at Isuzu have just released a brand new colour to the D-Max choices - Venetian Red! It is stunning, and will be a real head turner for sure!
The best way to experience this is not of course through a screen, but in real, actual life, so head down to Bowater Isuzu on the corner of Rutherford and Hardy to talk to the team and they will sort you out.
The Bowater Isuzu Camo wrapped D-Max was a head turner and certainly was a talking point where ever it went. It ended up going to a new home on the West Coast to be used like a proper truck! No posing outside the cafe looking all shiny, this hard core machine was destined to be used and driven to the best places in the country - out the back and well away from the roads!
When you are living this kind of lifestyle you need a truck you can rely on, and one that is up to the task, with proper off road pedigree. The new West Coast owners are loving the D-Max and using it well, as evidenced by the photos we recently received.
How cool is that! Not a road, or any form of civilisation to be seen AT ALL, and the horizon is a very long way away. This is the beauty of living where we do......
The 2013 Isuzu D-Max LS - a truck worthy of Davey Hughes respect.
This year it starts in your own backyard!
Isuzu have launched another D-Max hunt fronted by our generations Barry Crump - the legendary hunter, Swazi founder and all round nice guy, Davey Hughes. The competition is quite different for 2013 with the chance to win the D-Max a little bit more of a game.
But first things first - you will need to register to be a part of it all online.
Click here to get started but come back to this page when you are done and we will give you some tips.
Davey Huges has been busy and the boffins behind the scenes have come up with a slightly different formula this time round. Davey Hughes has hidden 9 Hunting Licences out there in the New Zealand bush – 6 in the North Island and 3 in the South. Track one down and you can win one of two brand new Isuzu D-Max utes at Davey’s big D-Max Decider in October. But to join the hunt you need to sign up first.
Stay tuned for more information as we guide you through the process, and keep you in the loop. Keep reading to learn just how easy it is. Wouldn't it be awesome if someone local pulled it off and came home with a brand new Isuzu D-Max!
