Hello all - joining the DAF T244 club

Postby Tom_DAF » Tue Aug 08, 2017 12:34 pm

Hi All,

I've been using this forum as a resource for months and now that I've begun my own project, it's time to start being more active, starting with me introducing myself.

My significant other and I have bought a 1995 Leyland DAF T244 and have begun the process of converting it into an overlanding vehicle.

We are preparing for a 1 year trip around southern Africa. We decided not to try and keep it under 7.5t so I've done my LGV already, and we are building directly on the load bed - no torsion free subframe. Still in the early stages but I've addressed the killer-dowel-pin, DVLA registration, and started construction of our frame.

We are based in Warwickshire and are looking forward to the AO show at Stratford in September, perhaps we'll see some of you there (unfortunately we won't be bringing our truck).

Glad to join the community,

Tom & Kim

Hi Tom

Welcome to the group. Plenty of DAF guys on here to help out.

Don't worry about not having a Truck for AO17. Bring a tent .

It would be great to meet everyone .

Welcome to the group Tom and significant other!

It is a great group and everyone is friendly and helpful welcome to the steep building curve!

Will be good to see you at the show, all being well we should have a large BBQ and sort of tent cover, all compliments of Stan, bless him, so bring some food, a sleeping device and you are all set for a good time.

Brian.
