Hi and welcome to Outsite TV. Today we’ll have a look at the most expensive piece of gear I’ve tested so far. My new favorite piece of gear. The height is like a great sleeping pad and the length… Like 5 tent in a row. Lot’s of space inside for you and your friend. With all the room you need for your gear. When we’re driving to the trail head on imposible small roads we can get stuck in our everyday car. I’m in a forest not far from the city and the road was already a bit bumpy. In my evryday car, a VW Polo, I can drive this road at 10 km/h. In the Amarok I can drive it at 50 km/t.But that’s not the whole point. The point is to chose a car for the activities and hobbies you have. Other hobbies than hiking choses their cars after activity and here the Amarok is a great example. You can get the Amarok as a Hunter version. You’ll get everything you need for your hunting activities. The Hunter version is sold a lot, so you might meet them on your way. However… why don’t us hikers buy cars after the activities we do – like hiking, camping and so on? Everytime I’m on a hike there are 12 small everyday cars and not a single 4×4. Trouble is if the snow or heavy rain comes, most of us are in it to our knees.In hilly areas I’m in trouble in my Polo but the Amarok does the job with no problems at all. It’s funny isn’t it? Why don’t we choose a car that fits our needs? I’ve borrowed this Amarok from VW so a big thank you to the guys at VW Frederikssund. It made my job so much easier. I’ve just been hammocking in the southern Sweden. There the roads can be challenging when we’re looking for the perfect hang. In my car I can’t really get to the fun places. If the weather is like today, the roads are safe and dry. But in heavy rain the roads gets muddy and that can be a problem in a low 2-wheel drive car. The feeling you get, when sitting in the Amarok is awesome! The view you get is a 360 degree point of view.Furthermore you get big mirrors, rear view camera and so on, that’ll help orient you. The feeling after driving many hours is not like when you have to get up in the morning. It’s more like the feeling when you’ve had a nice conversation in some great furnitures with a friend. It’s another great advantages with these big 4-wheeled cars. Inside we have room enough for everything and there are plenty of cup holders, USB sticks and so on.You can charge phones in 3 chargers and the entertainment center
work like a charm. When comming from a Polo to a Amarok, it’s no secret that there are no comparison in the spacious cabin. But I did get surprised of just how roomy this car is. In the back it can hold two of the TNF duffle bags. Compared to my Polo where there can only be one… So double up in space. It’s really so big, that when I’m driving, it’s uncomfortable to touch my wifes leg.If I want to, I’ll have to stretch all the way over here and thats not a nice driving position. So this is almost a disadvantages of big cars – you can’t touch your wife while driving… Sure, there is also a big step between the comfort of a Polo and Amarok on small roads. In my Polo I can drive 10 km/t (6 mph.). In the Amarok 50 km/t (31 mph.). And right now we’re on a bumpy road that is not comfortable… or it wouldn’t be in a Polo. But in a Amarok… You can drive like you want. So, am I only trying to sell you an expensive car with 4×4? No. I’ve been searching for a long time for a reasonably priced car with 4×4. This version is showed with some extra bling bling for the camera But check the price in your country – you might be surprised. Keep in mind that the Amarok is also doing some ok milage. 12 km. on one liter (0,26 gallons). Compared to our family car, an Opel Astra that does 14 km in one liter.This is much bigger, has 4×4 and a feels like a million – I would chose this one! That’s it, thank you for watching. Also a big thank you to VW Frederikssund. Subscribe to get reminded of when we review a much different kind of tent next week… .
