We have a pretty reliable Discovery3 (I know, I'm tempting after by saying that), and we're intending to go to Morocco later in the year.
Having read stuff on various forums, I got pointed to this one and have already picked up a couple of great bits of advice.

I look forward to pilfering your minds for more info as plans start to take shape!

Hello, welcome to the forum! cheers

One of the guys on here had a Disco 3 for a few years, did a lot of miles in it too. Doubtless he'll give you a few useful tips.

Ought to mention in case you were unaware, the Adventure Overland Show at Stratford-upon-Avon Racecourse 23-24 September 2017. Don't know where you're based or when you intend departing to Morocco, but you'll pick up a lot of info at the show for sure, so well worth considering.

The seminars for instance are always popular - www.adventureoverlandshow.net/seminars

Happy to answer any questions you might have. A group of friends and I have done Morocco three times since 2012, the last time being October 2016. I drive an '86 110, but we have had a Disco on the trip once with no issues.

That 110 of yours Tembo could easily be mistaken for an SAS vehicle, no wonder the boder guards made you repaint it one year. White with a hint of pink, a new line for Dulux?

Always wondered, was it emulsion? If so it would have washed off anyway with a shower of rain!

It was cheap emulsion paint..and was starting to fade by the time we left Morocco. Not enough rain in the desert to wash it away I guess. But did help when I got pulled over by a curious customs officer getting off the ferry back in Portsmouth. He thought it looked suspicious and when I told him the story he had a good laugh and sent me on my way...reminding me to change my V5 or repaint soon!
