I bought this for camping. I have a heavy duty sliding shelf in the load box. On this I pack ammo boxes and my freezer. I had fitted a Hella plug and cable leading to the vehicle battery for the freezer. For extra packing space I have wooden shelves fastened to the base of the canopy. This setup serves my needs perfectly being on a tight budget. I tow a lightweight offroad camper trailer. Our favourate destinations Kgalagadi and Namibia. My average diesel usage 10,5ks/100km after 6000ks (includes towing).

Dot 3 should be fine but just to be sure wait and see what comments are still forthcoming from other Vigo owners. ;-)
