  1. We had lunch at Malcolm dam and camped at Giles Breakaway on the ridge terrific views there . Second night at old Great central rd lookout, meet a dingo there . I was taking a photo and heard a growl turned around and he was 3 meters behind me. Third night Dingo camp( no dingos ) about 100 klm from the Olga’s. We camped for two nights at Morris Pass on the Mereenie loop . Another great site parked on the ridge. Took a bit to get the van in but it was worth it. Only trouble there is the toilet paper in the bush . People must think that it may grow!!!
  2. Just completed the Great Central road west to east . The road to Warburton wasn’t too bad at all but things deteriorated from then on . It was very rough both the WA and NT sections . The dust was horrendous as causing us some drama but we did enjoy the trip over thanks to the Kedron. We also traveled the Mereenie loop which was fantastic drive following the Ranges into Alice Springs. Damage: one caravan tyre demolished and a leaking gas pipe on the water heater. Both repaired now . We were planning to do the Tanami track but chickened our had enough dust for a while so doing the loop up to Katherine then head west to the coast .
  3. Thanks for your report and useful information. John
  4. Thanks Chris but we won’t be going on the Plenty . Planning Great Central from west , on to Palm Valley then the Tanami track to Halls Creek.
  5. Busy means revenue for the city can’t be a bad thing. We are heading that way mid August Great Central road west to the Rock plus Hermannsburg then Tanami track . Can’t wait .
  6. We have a diesel heater in our 2008 Top Ender with no fuel filter and have never had any problems. Not saying you shouldn’t have one , maybe we’ve been lucky? John
  7. Hi John , we own a Top Ender with upgraded ATM to 3990 kg towing with 200 series with Lovell’s 3850 and 4t towing upgrades. Our usual weight is around 3.4-5 sometimes a little more and found that with the Hitch easy Hitch the van tracks better with the distribution bars . Just feels safer . Regarding emptying the canister sometimes you just may have to dig a hole . We haven’t bothered with a grey water tank but if buying new it probably would be a good idea. kedron in my opinion build a great caravan which will take you where ever you may want to travel , they are well finished with many features and top quality extras . The best is though the after sales backup and service is second to none. The Kedron team will bend over backwards to help you . John
  8. Just missed you . Spent the last two nights at Coalseam and drove through Mingenew this morning.The wildflowers are prolific this year . I did see a Kedron camped at the Breakaway site last night when I was on the phone ( only can get reception there) went back this morning but they were gone . WA private plates . John
  9. Thanks Merv , whilst I am happy with that , makes me wonder though, if it’s deemed not to be safe As of June 1, why is our upgrade ok ? You would think that it would have to be for all vehicles if it’s not safe .Doesnt make sense to me . I am very happy with the upgrades.
  10. Been trying to decipher the discussions on the other forums. What about the second stage 4 tonne tow upgrade which we have , is this also as well as the GVM upgrade still legal ? Prior June 1 ?
  11. Thanks Tony I will check it all out . You are right plus I have had a claim with KT, no problems at all . Dont really want to leave them . Apologies to Di and Andy for hacking your thread . Hope that you get things sorted out soon. John
  12. Hi all Ken Tame ? Have been insured with them for some time now but received the renewal notice this week and thought I Better compare prices . RACWA and Apia are both $600 cheaper!! Seems like Ken is going to miss out .
  13. Had a disaster yesterday. We are in Bremer Bay WA setting up the awning then crash. The cast iron bracket holding the roll on to the arm/leg snapped off . Upon inspection it no wonder as the bracket isn’t that thick . The best part is that I got a local fix it all man to fabricate a stainless steel bracket. Now it’s probably stronger than the original and he was able to make and install it within 5 hours .Total cost $100 .00 The awning is an Aussie Traveler Sunbust Eclipse if you have one may pay to keep an eye on this bracket. It’s the front or left one, top bracket which fits over the leg /arm and is attached with a roller pin . John
  14. It’s maybe a good question if your attachment point on your vehicle are small then you may need to fit a set of hammer locks first then rated shackles. Our 200 series have rather large holes and I am using 3.2 t shackles. I believe that I need 4 t ones but hey enough is enough I recon.
