One consideration – and a major on at that – is the road use law for Sweden in regards to old vehicles.
The environmental laws are very tight & restrictive for commercial vehicles & large trucks, so I am looking into that at the moment.
Tax on the other hand is looking good. Vehicles over 30 years old do not require road tax, so our 1977 Series 3 88″ petrol Land Rover is tax exempt.
If we go for the Bedford MJ, that would also be tax exempt – but might be restricted as to where it can travel. I am waiting for some answers from the Swedish transport department on that.
Meanwhile, after a ring gear failure, ‘Frank’ the Landy is undergoing surgery, and at the same time will be serviced & modified to deal with Swedish roads & weather better.
