    After having sold the Pajero, we have picked up the LC200. Had the Lovell’s GVM upgrade and 2” lift before it was registered, have also had the ARB Summit bar fitted, UHF installed and will soon get the brake controller and wiring done. The Jayco just sold so we will be van-less until the CP5 arrives, hopefully late October. In relation to the CP5, we have chosen the colours, added some more options (including a second spare and the new pressure hatch) and now it’s just a matter of waiting and watching the videos of other vans being delivered to their new owners. October can’t come quickly enough😀

    I am going to replace the brake drums, plates etc on my Top Ender. I was planning to book into Cruisemaster (Vehicle Components) in Brisbane. On their website I discovered that they have a network of agents across the nation, including Cairns. Yesterday I visited Torque Tyres and Trailer Spares, one of the two agents in Cairns. To my surprise and delight I discovered that they have all the gear in stock and plenty of it. I have a booking there next Tuesday and I will report on the job they do. I thought that this info might be useful for anyone venturing up this way. Torque Tyres and Trailer Spares 180 Lyons Street CAIRNS QLD 4870 07 4230 0715 admin@etrailer.com.au

    Welcome to KOG David & Kerry, You certainly have been giving your new van a good run, trusting it is delivering all that you both expected. The inclusions (of your van) you have briefly described sound great, be great to it off at Kilkivan......hoping you can make it, promises to be a great gathering. Travel safe, Tony

    Hi all, Just joined up to this forum. We have ordered a TE5 for delivery pencilled in for December this year. We are heading up to the factory next week to finalise colours and some details. Starting to get excited now after first ordering this Van at the end of last year. Our first Van was a 21 footer from a manufacturer in Melbourne. It wasn't a bad Van but this Keddy will be our 'dream Van' and we have spent quite a bit of time researching various options. Looking forward to exploring this forum and to pick some brains. Look forward to meeting you up the track next year! Cheers, Andrea and Gary

    Thanks @TonyH I have thought of that and in fact have asked Graham if there was any chance we could coordinate handover with the Christmas gathering. Delivery hasn’t been scheduled yet so he couldn’t commit. If at all possible, you’ll see me there.

    Just a 'heads up' for you, if you do your own servicing...... https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/x4-12-TRAILER-CARAVAN-ELECTRIC-BRAKES-BACKING-PLATES-QUALITY-STRONG-MAGNETS/192832366955?_trkparms=aid%3D555018%26algo%3DPL.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D57481%26meid%3D948c0af19a69417e94259925e5d1b6b6%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D190702438279%26itm%3D192832366955%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851

    G'Day Tony, I have been using these aftermarket brake assemblies on my van & also vans that I service for many years with NO trouble from the std magnets. I am aware of the 'off road' magnets but could not justify the added cost. That's my experience anyway.....your call. So important to adjust the brakes correctly (bendix electric) screw adjuster up till wheel locks then back off 'twelve clicks' ! Cheers Tony

    I priced the Dometic / Ebersparcher diesel tank cap at $30 and was not prepared to pay that price for a cap that cost less than 10 cents to produce. I found two items at Bunnings that do the job perfectly and the cap is much better than the original cap. You need to buy a 40mm DWV PVC male fitting adaptor from the plumbing department. (see photos below) It has a thread on one end and is smooth on the other end. The smooth end fits perfectly into the inside of the fuel tank filler. About 3 metres from the adaptor in the same aisle is a one and a half inch black plastic cap with a Philmac brand on it, it has a hex shaped base to make it easy to unscrew the cap. You need to put a little plumbing primer and the blue plumbing glue on to the white fitting before slipping it into the fuel tank filler. Clean the inner of the fuel tank filler thoroughly to remove any diesel and rough it up slightly to allow the glue to grip the inner side of the filler tube. Any fuel resistant sealant or glue will do if you don't have plumbing primer an plumbing glue. Drill a tiny hole through the white plastic plumbing fitting at the base of the thread before gluing it in place so the tank can vent and does not form a vacuum whilst fuel is drawn from it . Glue the white fitting with the vent hole down to keep moisture out of the tank. The vent hole is probably not necessary as the cap does not have a sealing ring and will probably let a small amount of air past the thread but I can't guarantee it. Total price for both fittings is under $6.50! If you lose the cap again a replacement costs under $3.00

    Hi Andrea and Gary. Welcome to the Group, and congratulations on ordering KEDRON caravan. Before you visit the factory, compose a list of questions. You might find many of those will be answered when to go there. I suggest the main thing is to get a firm understanding of the specifications and any extra things you want. Also, ask Graham to send you some photos of the various build stages. Other than that, enjoy the experience and comradeship the Group can offer. All the best. Cheers from Pete

    Thank you Chris, very helpful trip report. It gives me something to think about for when we reschedule our Alice trip. I had planned on arriving and leaving Alice from the south, but doing a loop where we leave Sydney and first go north / west to Boulia, then visit Alice, Uluru and the surrounds and then come home via Oodnadatta sounds like a better option. This year’s trip was designed around having a Jayco which we wanted to sell as soon as we returned home. The Jayco is now retired (for us at least), detailed and up for sale. We pick up the CP5 in October opening up a new world of route options.

    For our wedding anniversary I bought a map of the world, put it on the wall. I gave my beloved a dart and said “wherever the dart lands we will holiday for 2 weeks!”. Well, now we are camped out near the skirting board in the laundry for a fortnight....

    Last night we stayed at the Kilkivan Bush Camp. It was so lovely. Update, the pool is open. Remember to bring your swimmers. Also they are in the process of adding a coffee shop and kiosk next to the office.
