Nissan Navara replaces Land Rover as new work vehicle

The Trust has acquired a new work vehicle to replace the on-loan Land Rover that was returned to Harwoods after a relationship spanning several decades.

The Land Rover Defender delivered in December 2011 was the last of its line and was returned to Harwoods in Pulborough in October, prompting the search for a new pick-up truck.

A five-year-old Nissan Navara has been chosen as a replacement. It can tow up to 3.5 tonnes and carry up to a tonne, as much as a Land Rover. The four-wheel drive Navara also has room for a team of four and boasts air conditioning.

The Nissan was sourced through specialist company GWA Cars & Finance, based in Bognor Regis, West Sussex, and has been funded thanks to a generous donation.

The Trust first received the keys of a long-wheelbase diesel-powered Land Rover on ‘semi-permanent’ loan from Harwoods of Sussex in 1995 and the company has kindly updated our Land Rovers at regular intervals since then. We are extremely grateful to them for their generosity over so many years.
