Yes to either carry a SUV or Garage on the bed. One the Hino shows a car. 5vers are a mix of American and locally built Tow vehicles are European, American( Freightliner) Australian built( Kenworth) but they are Japanese mainly plus anIsuzu 6 wheeled Ute and amongst the European an IVECO Daily Cab Chassis truck variant of a Van

It mostly comes down to the fact that hear in Australia vehicles GVM and GCM as set by manufacturer is the limit, and any trailer over 4500Kg has to have air brakes, at least those trucks already has this setup, to change a Ute to air brakes about $20000 .
Hi Robert long time no se. Currently sitting outside Darwin and can’t go anywhere because of lock down.
