What is interesting is that the van pretty much stayed intact.
Had that been a UK built van it would have smashed to pieces.

What went wrong.

The unit didnt look stable, it was unsettled right from the first view. Speed looked to be excessive, but the minute he got into the snake, if you look closely, he stood on his brakes.

So, bad loading, speed and not skilled or calm enough to deal with a snake.

But thats an Aussie off roader van Built to take any terrain. Mind you it may not stand up to our pot holed roads here.

It will have loads of chequer plate and box section in the construction.
