    Hello Tony and Irene, In the past we have received a book, chopping board and vegetable knife, both which have been well received. We also have received other gifts that have not been so useful or enjoyable. As some live in their vans, space is also an issue. I personally always enjoy something we can eat or drink. 🍷🍷🍫🥜🍾 Look forward to meeting you and all other members attending. Cheers, Sandra and Clive

    An update. The springs have arrived. Hallelujah. They only took 11 days to get to Perth from Brisbane. Val drove down from Merredin to pick them up and got home about 4pm. He was greeted by me saying I thought a fuse had gone on the solar panel system as we had had no power coming in all day from the roof solar panels. So he got out of the car, exhausted, and had to fix the fuse. It never rains but it pours.

    Karen & Paul are a lovely couple, with their local knowledge they will make your down time less frustrating. Just don’t get Paul to help Val with the spring replacements....he won’t know which end of the spanner to hold....sorry Paul!

    Ideally it should be related to caravanning but doesn’t have to be. Some good ideas I have seen before have included a led light which adheres to the outside of the van; a lanyard with a key holder so you carry your keys around your neck; any secret key holder which can attach magnetically under the van; have a mug made up with Kedron on it; a lightweight melamine nibbles tray; a knife guard to protect sharp knives in the drawer. Is that helpful?

    On Friday we were joined here at our campground near Bencubbin by fellow Kedron owners who live in Merredin. We had never met before except through this forum, but they took pity on us and thought they would come up to keep us company 😍. We have had a wonderful time together, sharing outrageous (and probably mostly true) stories over cups of coffee and cold drinks. So we have decided to go down to Merredin tomorrow, travelling slowly and with Karen and Paul keeping us in front of them in case of any mishaps. Then Val will have a clear run to the city when he needs to pick up the springs. Hopefully that will be sooner rather than later. It pays to be a Kedron owner 💕

    Hi Jaap, Any ‘new’ vehicle is always going to be daunting, wether it be size, handling, braking......with time comes experience and confidence in your new ride! I have no qualms driving my GMC through peak hour city traffic.......but being truthful the turning circle is certainly greater than a 200 or similar....but with experience & familiarity with the vehicle it will become second nature! My vehicle is now in its third year of ownership (from new) I had a couple of conversion related issues (minor) fixed at the first service. Since then I’ve had two exhaust temp sensors ‘fail’ and they have been replaced under warranty....no dramas! Would I purchase another Chev/GMC yes in a heartbeat, BUT I do miss some of the creature comforts of Toyota, that sadly the yanks don’t fit as standard. Our vehicle now is approaching 70k in just over two years.....no unusual traits or funny things happening. But when you go bush in a jap vehicle, I maybe had a false sense of security knowing that you could by parts at the local chemist (almost) if you had a problem with the yank truck (regardless of brand) that feeling of security sadly isn’t there....for me anyway. Being a qualified mechanic, I can service and repair my vehicle with NO warranty implications, Not that would know what dealers are charging for servicing....that’s one cost (@retail) I don’t have to worry about. Can I respectfully suggest you during your research on your proposed purchase, consider getting quotes on insurance comprehensive and third party and other ON costs just to compare with what you are paying for your current vehicle.......remembering your really a jumping into another class of tow vehicle. Towing my Kedron, I REALLY am getting better overall fuel consumption figures than what I was getting in my 200....we are at Chinchilla at the moment (heading west) dash display showing 17.2 lts per 100k’s......around town figures are slightly higher than the 200. Go ahead....take the plunge, you won’t be sorry! Cheers

    The new spring (and a second one to replace both sides at the same time as the other is likely to be similarly affected too) has been ordered and being sent from Brisbane to Perth. There are none in WA, as the unit is a strong spring for the rough roads a Kedron is exposed to... Apparently it will take between 2 days to 2 weeks for it to arrive..... In the meantime we are waiting at a nice bushcamp near Bencubbin, a small Wheatbelt town. A couple of Kedron forum members have generously offered their assistance and that is heartwarming. Thanks to Karen Slater and John Geling!
