Softroader Magazine


Hey all,

Thought id fire this up to see everyone's thoughts.

If there was a magazine available to buy along the same formats as the likes of 4wd Action or Pat Callinans 4wd Adventure but dedicated to the likes of Softroaders, with reports on trips, product reviews etc

Would you buy it?

Ive done a poll, but id like to hear your reasons for and against.

Thanks
Mants

Yeah I would probably buy it to check it out. Don't think you would get the followers to make it as popular as 4wd action tho

Re:


I would also buy it if it has realistic stories and reviews, rather than those provided by pen-pushers promoting certain brands and haven't seen any of them in real life emoticon

Re:


I would agree 4wd action has gone downhill recently I think, too much plugging products and Roberto g what it's actually about.

Do you know if there has ever been a magazine of any sort just for softroaders?

Re: Softroader Magazine


they sell more than compressors, side awnings frides, swags, camping gear the list goes on. I have purchased a number of things through them for cheap prices with free shipping. Al the gear I have used through them has been great.

I don't read the magazines but I do like the dvds. I enjoy the digital subscription.

don't know of any softroad magazines

Re: Softroader Magazine


A softroader magazine would fail dismally. Have a look at home many Prados (for example) or out there and the percentage of those that get used off road/those who's owners have an interest in off-roading. You do the same thing for softroaders and the percentage would be even smaller.
Jalal using you as an example as someone who is uninterested in 4WDAction mags. Why would you be? I believe it's been what about 2 years since you went on any sort of off-road trip? Not trying to have a go but clearly you are not their market.
As for a softroader market aimed at off-roaders can you imagine how tiny that market would be? And how limited the trips they do would be? What apart the articles on DIY or gear comparisons? I doubt many Forester or CX-9 driver are interested in DIY rock sliders or electric winches.
To answer the original question no I would not buy it nor would I have bought it when I owned my X-Trail. If you want an easy standard touring magazine the Pat Callinan has that market nailed.
