Modifications and Maintenance

Amesz Canter 4WD Modification and Maintenance

Occasionally we get asked if we had done any modification or large maintenance jobs on the Amesz Canter 4WD Motorhome. Our vehicle wasn’t 100% suited to us when we purchased it, which isn’t saying it wasn’t perfect for the previous owner, just not us. So we went to town customising a great vehicle so we could live in it for months at a time off the grid and so we could ensure we could access the types of areas we love to visit. This involved many areas of the vehicle including performance, seating and electrics. Today the vehicle is perfect for us.

Escape Hatch Seal Maintenance

Over the last 12 months when we have gone to tilt the truck cab we have found it firmly stuck closed. We have put it down to heat fusing the rubber on the under side of the cab and possibly thought a trip to Mr Mitsubishi maybe required to fix it. Luckily for us,...
