Who needs a car...
« on: 30, July, 2013 - 17:18:00 »
...when you have a C5 ;) Used as my daily transport for the last 18 months and will continue so in the near future, covered a good few thousand miles so far and will undoubtedly cover a few thousand more in the next couple of years. Me and a few friends are planning a weekend away camping in August and, naturally, the Sinclair is the vehicle of choice to carry all the necessities. Namely, our 6 man tent, a few air beds, sleeping bags, first aid kit, fire extinguisher, plenty of gaffer tape etc., with some ingenuity everything fitted during the trial packing today. Here's a picture for you lot to laugh at ;)

Gertk, try stopping it. Think it's missing a carrier across the front of it and perhaps a trailer, lol. Sorry

To carry on this theme of ridiculous loads on the back of a C5, how about this? A standard car bike rack, oddly, it feels much more stable on the back of the C5 than it does on the back of any of our cars..  ;D

I thought the front was already light enough, whats the steering like?

I've only taken it up and down the close so far, steering wasn't brilliant to be fair, felt very, very light at the front. Although it was better with the camping equipment in as I had a fair bit of weight on the 'centre console' as well as on the back.

Part 3 of ridiculous loads on the back of a C5 coming soon..  ;)
