#WINTER IS COMING!
We are building a Mountain Yacht that will be travelling in the mountains during all seasons, but especially Winter. We have M+S tyres, 4x4, low gear, differential lockers all around and a hydraulic winch, so we are all good to go? For most situations we are more than equipped, even for heavy snowstorms as our…
MAN HX60 COOLANT HOSE CLAMPS
Our Mountain Yacht has a playdate with BeBe from our English friends Jess and David (who took the picture above) and the HX60 from Margreth and Hans (NL). We have a great night with cheese fondue and tapas and the next morning we receive a tip from Hans: 'tighten the coolant clamps under the dashboard,…
THAT’S A WRAP!
We are busy transforming Monster towards our Mountain Yacht. We used the last two months for definitive planning, measurements and ordering the last bits & pieces.  We also started with the actual build of the inside: heater, water and electricity, we will write separate articles on every part of that in the near future. We installed…

You cannot rely on others to bring the sufficient recovery tools. Some recovery gear is for self-recovery and some is for getting pulled out or pulling someone else out of a messy situation. We…
CABIN REFURBISHMENT
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k50GzVttrTsAlthough the HX60 is a relative comfortable and modern vehicle, it is still a utility truck. Rugged, bold, harsh, very green and no sound proofing or insulation. In short: a real Monster!  We are turning Monster into a Mountain Yacht, so we decided to do an overhaul of the cabin and go mountain style all…
