2005 Nissan Patrol

2005 Nissan Patrol

Introducing the Patrol ‘MYRIG,’ who was our faithful adventure tour guide!

The tourer was kitted out with pretty much everything you can imagine. She got us from town to town, pulled us out of trouble, housed the mini workshop, kept us warm and dry (cool in summer) and towed our home behind her.
