Well guys I've bitten.

Bought a 2003 northstar!

Now I just need to get a truck!

They guy I bought it off had it on a l200 but it overhung a bit. So that seems like a bad idea, what do y'all think?

We're having a bunch of people over to camp in our garden at the weekend so I'll get to give it a dry run.

Hi from us in Somerset as well. welcome to the world of demountables. The truck that it was on, was it a 4 door or 2 door? Or extra cab?
That would also hint at what overhang is acceptable.
Enjoy your new toy

it was a l200 double cab 2007 plate (new weird curvy shape)

So the bed is shorter than the standard short beds of UK pickups. The Long bed option for the L200 didn't come in until 2009 i think.
