  1. Where are you right now?

    We are currently at the big 4 in Mackay, enjoying what Mackay has on offer :}
  2. Are you happy with your Kedron?

    HI All Its been a while since we've posted to the forum. We decided on purchasing an offroad van, we researched the market and decided that we would by one from the opposition, we went to the caravan show ready to sign and pay money, we stood in the stand in the sight of the sales man (as they were busy) for about 30 mins waiting for someone to come to us, during this time we decided to check out the vans on display, needless to say we were disappointed, a big white chain up only allowing us access to about a meter inside the van, you were not allowed to open or close any cupboards or drawers, I couldn't even go to the other end of the van to check out the bathroom. Getting pretty frustrated we decided to move on and decided to do the transaction at the factory. On our way out of the show we had to walk through the Kedron display, Glen Gall was there and straight away came upto us and wanted to show us his vans, we explained to him that had already made a decision on the brand of van we were wanting, thanked him and went to walk on. To our surprise he said, thats ok but can I show you anyway. We then spent the next 3 hours with Glen, he showed us the ins and outs of the top ended (as this was the offroad equivalent to what we wanted), we were so impressed with not only the display, workmanship, sales advise and service we bought a Kedron Topender, now we are still working and dont get to use the van as often as we would like, but we are planning our big lap and will be on the road in about 18mths. Just my 2 cents worth Regards Di
  3. Anyone rent their van ?

    Hi Ricky We are new to Kedron Caravaning, in fact new to caravaning full stop, We have done plenty of traveling with a camper trailer. I can tell you that we researched caravans for nearly a 12 months before we made the decission, it is a lot of money to spend and you certainly want to make sure you are getting what you pay for. We purchased a top ender and although our van second hand and we love it. Coming to the Christmas gathering in Canungra would definately give you the opportunity to meet other kedron owners and pick their brains... They say customer testamonials is the best way to get the truth about the product they have purchased. Hope to see you there.... Di
  4. Hi All Just wondering if anyone else is has the 79 series ute as a tow vehicle and would you be interested in sharing your modifications you have done to your ute. We just pick our up, so far we are very impressed how it drives, however, we did try and hook our van up only to find the WDS we currently have is not compatable with the ute because of the lift it has, so we are having to purchase a longer hitch and heavy WDS to accomodate the height of the truck. We are fitting the new hitch this week and then hopefully (fingers crossed) we can see how the cruiser will perform towing. Would love to hear what modifications people have done to make their vehicle more comfortable and compatable for towing. Our list so far: Dual battery system 12000lb winch rear heavy duty air bag suspension on board compressor 4 in lift 3" exhaust looks like we have a oil cooler fitted for the gear box ?? not sure but thats what it looks like Clearview mirrors Thanks Tony H Cab roof Rack Light bars and HID spotties HID upgrade to headlights 6 start Electronic rust prevention electric brakes Roof console UHF radio Soon to add Remote Central Locking Reversing Camera Pyro and boost gauges In cab air controller for airbags Maybe, change the passenger seat from 3/4 to Bucket Canopy Fridge slides for 2 40L engels canopy battery and solar setup for charging and a partridge in a pear tree....... Look forward to hearing your feedback. Regards Andy & Di Grant

  7. Clearview mirrors

    Hi Tony Thank you for your message. Yes 2007 79 series. The fridge slide needs to be big enough to home a 40lt engel. Sorry I don't know the exact size. Thanks Di
  8. Clearview mirrors

    Hi Tony can you I please get a price of you for the clear view mirrors, we have a 07 landcruiser cab chassis. is there any cost difference between black to chrome or indicators to no indicators? Are the Mirrors the only thing you have access to from clearview? I am also interested in there fridge slide. Thanks Di

    Hi Peter we did run our generator on the slide, we previously had a honda/engel 1kva, we have just upgraded to the 2.4kva and as you have stated it is rather heavy so we have sort a different slide same as the one in the photo above and we will be running the yamaha on that slide too. hope that was helpful. Regards Di

  12. Generator & BBQ slide

    HI All we are newbies to caravanning, we have travelled quite a lot with our camper trailer but age has got the better of us and we have now purchased a topender 21ft. we are planning our next long venture in 18mths to do The Outback Way. but I am sure there will be many more shorter travels before then. We are looking forward to meeting like minded people and hoping to creating new friendships within the club. I do have a quick question - what sort of slides are people using for there generators and bbqs? we have a weberQ (middle size) and we have just purchased the Yamaha 2.4kva generator. we put the genie in the box on the drivers side of the van and it only just fits with no slide so I was wondering if anyone else is using the same genie on a slide?, I plan on putting the weber in the storage box on the passenger side and wondered if anyone else is using a swivel type slide for the bbq? I have been researching but there are so many different types its hard to choose the one that will do the job. Thanks in advance. Andy & Di Grant
