    Hi Tim I am a Victorian based Kedron owner (7 Years) and would be quiet happy to talk to you and answer any queries you may have. If I was to replace my van it would most definitely be another Kedron Warm Regards John

    We are at Onkaparinga’s Pink Gums campground for a couple of nights. It is right on the edge of the McLaren Vale wine region, and not that far from the city. But it feels nice and peaceful. There are 11 sites in all but not all fit a caravan of our size. Most do, though.. We are nicely settled in, as you can see.

    Keep your eye on the 'Sale' section of the forum something might pop up there. Also on the Facebook Kedron page sometimes has vans. Read, read, read. It will all start to make some sense. Make sure it has a diesel heater. Toyotas are certainly the way to go for a car.

    Good morning I am based in MEL VIC and I spose like many VIC's in C-19 land, am doing all the research to but a van trying to cut through all of the hype/fog/garbage that is out on www. I am a first time vanner and focusing on the 18-19’ compact type KEDRON range however still lost in the fog and don’t want to but one and rock up to a camp site and be told “ hey mate you should have reached out to us – and we could have stopped you making all of these rookie mistakes” I have noted that the KEDRON club is for owners/pre ordered persons which I totally get and respect – and this e-mail is inquiring to if you have any advice for a rookie as I am sure that there an extensive knowledge and experience of forum/members that have gone through what I have started So where am I at? Have budgeted only 60-70K for a van for wife and self and have to allow $30-40 for a suitable tow vehicle and will probaly stick to a TOYOTA - as that will burn up the funds - as need $ to enjoy the lifestyle (thinking no more than 17-18' off roader around 2012+, single beds if possible) very much focused on a quality build and engineering and of course after sales service – Paul from KEDRON seems to be more than supporting to date Van wanted for local VIC/SA/NSW type 3-5 days tours at the start but want to be able to travel to WA and go up North – when I get leave from current job – and get more experience Want to ensure good resale value – happy to take the hit for fair wear and tear etc Not sure if I can service and maintain a KEDRON in VIC when everything is QLD focused I see Bushtracker have a huge following and an awesome members sales page but cant work out why as huge pricing model and when I look at the engineering – I see some of the wiring etc is now where near what KEDRON and pumping out Anyway – I am only 62 and want to start and enjoy the van life whilst still fit and healthy and any advice would be so much appreciated So forum - reaching out and seeing if anyone could offer a VIC rookie any advice

    Hi Tim, One area you will need to get your head around is the weight of the van and the weight limits of the car. There is a ton of stuff explaining this on the web.

    We are experiencing less water flow and water pressure when hooked up to mains water in caravan parks. I have been advised that it could be a partially blocked Shurflo Mains Pressure Regulator Water Inlet? Has anyone else experienced this problem? and if so, what are the remedies? Any advice and help would be greatly appreciated. regards Macca

    G'Day all, I am looking to get a bike rack for a-frame mounting. I'd appreciate hearing what you have, see a pic, and how it goes and what to be aware of. What brand or type you settled on. Thanks heaps. Ken

    Hi Ken I fitted a double Thule to the front of my van just over 2 years ago See attached photo. I carry an E bike that weighs in at about 20 Klg. have had no problem with it. I do turn the handle bars around sideways which makes access a little easier to all compartments.

    Hi Macca, We experienced the same issue and were told the same thing as you. So we replaced the inlet and had no change in result. We just put up with it now S & K

    That is a great photo of Kimbo. One that reminds me of many great times. He was always one for safety and taught me the right way to use a chainsaw. To this day when I pick up a chainsaw, his words of safety ring in my ears. Thoughts and hugs to Nerida and all his family

    The news of Kim Greenwood’s (Kimbo) passing is very saddening. As mentioned in previous posts he (& his wife Nerida) were founding members of the Kedron Owners Group (KOG). His passion for his family (including extended), & life generally is well known. Your memory will be remembered for a very long time and around many campfires. The thoughts and condolences of the Kedron Owners Group, goes to all of the Greenwood family at this sad time. Tony Heat President KOG

    A month or two ago we visited the Gawler Ranges NP in the far North of SA’s Eyre Peninsula. We are back again, although not in the national park itself. This area is blessed with granite outcrops known as Inselbergs, similar to those in WA. Where we are camped is at Pildappa Rock, not far from Minnipa. Pildappa is very similar to Wave Rock near Hayden WA. It has the same characteristic “flare” which distinguishes the rock feature. And the weather is wonderful!

    And these photos are from nearby Polda Rock. It was an incredibly windy day, but the views were worth the climb.

    Sadly Kimbo lost the good fight last night and passed away. He will not be forgotten as we shared so many good times not just as mates but being a part of KOG. Thoughts and hugs go to Nerida, their children and grand children. Darryl
