Hey all,
Just checkin' to see if any of you folk might be attending this event.

http://www.roav.org/

I'll be there with my family and our P38 and Classic. First time for us at this one. Looks to be fun. Dusting off a lot of camping gear... it's been a while.

It was a blast! Great people, great weather, beautiful location, fun time. Out of the two hundred or so vehicles I counted four, maybe five P38's, one 322, and a ton (maybe 50?) Classics. Nice to see a showing of Range Rovers.
Long drive, locked myself out of our P38... but none-the-less, an adventure worth repeating! :thumb:

Im sure Rovers North wont mention the RR. My favorite is a quote from a one of their articles when they put Range Rovers in the "Other Vehicles" catagory. :naughty:

It's funny to see the stratification amongst Land Rover vehicle owners. It drives my wife nuts when other LR owners don't wave, and kinda give you that "look". Classic's, I've seen, tend to be looked down upon by the crowd as the cheap entry vehicle (sorta like the trailer trash from down the road folk... :roll: ) The P38's are just looked at in disbelief. (what's that doing here... really?) There's just not enough L322's coming to the few rally's, that I've been to, to cement any reputation, but the one that was there had no fear and held it's own with the rest :clap: . The Series and Discovery guys seem to be the most non-judgemental of the group. Unfortunately, and I can't undestand why, the Defender folk really seem to act the elitists of the group. It's just a Classic with a rough ride and no amenities... :wink:

Anywhere else in the world we could buy a Defender for cheap and the RR is the expensive choice. Only in America do people owning a farmers/workers truck are considered lucky. `)

Defenders have better resale values than Range Rovers over here once they get to about 5-6 years old.
Bear in mind that the RR was a good chunk more when it was new...

Thats surprising. Most places RR sell far more than Defenders.

2001 Defender
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2001-51-Land-Rove ... 1283wt_937
And a 2001 Range Rover
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2001-51-RANGE-ROV ... 1357wt_937

2006 Defender
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2006-Land-Rover-D ... 1452wt_937
Which has dropped about a third of its value.
And some Range Rovers from '06 which have dropped around half (or more) of their value
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2006-Land-Rover-R ... _986wt_937
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2006-56-RANGE-ROV ... _600wt_933
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2006-56-Range-Rov ... 1063wt_937

Two reasons; the Defender is almost exempt from ant-4x4 feeling as most people feel they must be working vehicles and also the Land Rover diehards who moan about niceties such as wind up windows (and slate the Evoque) keep the values up.

I believe you. You didnt have to do all that. In the South American and African markets is where Im use to seeing the price differences.

Defenders do seem to command a hefty price, well over double the same year and mileage Range Rover. However, consider this... We just drove about 1500 miles (round trip, with family), in comfort and style, to participate in this off road event. Hard to beat the versatility of a Rangie.

Not many people will argue this. Defenders are overpriced work trucks.
