I think this one has been for sale a bunch before. I believe it is on its 4th owner now (so next person will be the 5th owner). I wonder why it changes hands so often? One thought Ive had is that it might be too heavy for the F250 chassis. Maybe the handling on the short wheelbase is not good.

Correct. Search here for Malayan LT, and there are previous threads. #1 from ?, #2 from Vanc BC, #3 from Malibu CA, #4(current) is a Tiger aficionado in SLC, UT. Seems that #3 and #4 didn't use it but for 2 trips and just the trip to UT respectively.
Cute lil' F-Series mohome, but is getting porky at ~11k(?) wet.
For the new buyer, recommend doing some research on Malayan roof leaks and assembly quality, both here and on Tiger forums, just so you know how to best take care of it moving forward.

It's small, but no worse than the old Tiger XLs they used to build on the Astro/Safari platform. I'd be very surprised if it couldn't be made right, if anything were wrong with it.

More than likely, the problem is a mismatch of expectations. Tigers aren't Earthroamers (especially this size one), but they aren't Winnebagos or 40' diesel pushers either.

Agreed, cool but I think right price is sub 90k based on what I”ve seen in Provans Used inventory. The big benefit is short wheel base compared to alot of the builds, would be great in our east coast forest service roads.
