car

I own a 2011 GLX Triton. The car itself has a number of up grades such as suspension , power chips, dual batteries and electric brakes , these are all essential for towing a caravan in the Australian outback. Other features included are a bullbat , snorkel, BFG AT tyres, a number of cigarette and USB outlets and a reverse camera .All the outlets are good for the children’s entertainment, phone charges and running a fridge in the back. Lastly I have an inbuilt air compressor, inventor and a set of black widow draws, which are great for  keeping everything organised. The connection between the car and the van is a small six pin plug and an Anderson plug which allows the alternator to charge the caravan battery , when driving. It must be added that I bought the car with all of these features in 2013. Cost $28,000
