  2. Hi members, At the 2020 AGM a committee was formed to look into our uniforms. At the 2021 AGM it was decided to go with iron on badges. Sample and info attached. I will be sending an email out soon to all members to request if they want one each free and additional at $5. To save wearing out the internet please email the kedronownersgroup@gmail.com and advise if you require one/two to be mailed out and deposit $5 each into our bank account with name and memb no. for the additional ones. Any queries please contact me Bill Fawkes

  5. Three elderly ladies were sitting on a park bench minding their own business when they heard a rustle coming from the bushes. Suddenly, a man jumped out of the bushes and flashed them. The first lady yelled in shock and had a stroke. The second lady yelled in shock and had a stroke. The third lady’s arm was too short to reach.
  6. On his 74th birthday, a man got a gift certificate from his wife. The gift certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby reservation who was rumoured to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction. After being persuaded, he drove to the reservation, handed his gift certificate to the medicine man, and wondered what he was in for. The old man handed a potion to him, and with a grip on his shoulder warned, "This is a powerful medicine, you take only a teaspoon, and then say 1-2-3. When you do, you will become more manly than you have ever been in your life, and you can perform as long as you want." The man was encouraged. As he walked away, he turned and asked, "How do I stop the medicine from working?" "Your partner must say 1-2-3-4," he responded, but when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon." He was very eager to see if it worked, so he went home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited his wife to join him in the bedroom. When she came in, he took of his clothes and said "1-2-3!" Immediately, he was the manliest of men. His wife was excited and started throwing off her clothes, and then she asked "What was the 1-2-3 for?" And that, boys and girls, is why we should never end our sentences with a preposition, or we could end up with a dangling participle!
  7. Yep....sure is Pete. All I can afford after paying for the gearbox rebuilds....lol
  8. Hi Tony and Annie. Is that red ute with the camper extension a replacement for your GMC !!!!! Cheers from Pete
  9. Thanks guys, some very useful information there.
  10. Welcome to KOG, I believe you will find us a friendly group & generally very proud owners of the Kedron product. There is lots of Kedron & general 'caravan' information on this website, if there is something you cant find or not sure of.....just ask! Looking forward to meeting you down the road one day. Travel safe! Tony & Annie H
  11. Hi Allan. We have a 2020 compact with an extra water tank (260L in total) and grey tank. So far we have stayed off grid for 10 days with no issues re water. If we fill all tanks we have very little payload (about 150kg). Generally we leave the drinking water tank empty (giving us 200l of water which is heaps), depending on how long we will be away and what sort of payload we require. Re the power: we have 300ah lithium, 1600w inverter, 240w solar and slimline compressor fridge. The fridge uses a lot of power and when there is poor quality of sunlight it does become a problem. We have considered getting a generator. As far as price is concerned, I believe CP5’s with scrub pack are around 120k ish, but I think you probably need to talk to Paul at the sales centre for a more accurate quote.
  12. Thankyou Sandra and Clive, good after sales service is reassuring to hear.
  13. Welcome to the group Allan. We are on our second Kedron van. We too owned a Jayco and took the plunge and bought our first Kedron in 2001. Updated to our current van years later. The main thing that has impressed us over the years is the after sales service. Good luck and fun times ahead planning. Sandra and Clive
  14. Thankyou Tony & Irene for the response. I will do some research on the Aussie Traveller lightweight annex. I think my wife and I will go out to the yard and ask some questions. The weight is certainly in the ballpark. Allan
  15. Hi Allan, We have a 2018 Compact and just love it. It has a tare of 2100 and can go up to 2750. We do have a 3 way fridge so cannot comment on off grid time - we tend to spend most of our time off grid. We have a 100L water and 60L fresh water tank - we do have a grey water tank as we like to go to national parks etc and a lot more places now ask for them. We have an Aussie Traveller lightweight annexe - it is easy to put on / pull down. Easily stores under the bed and a great annexe. Sorry I cannot comment on current price range but give Paul at the yard a call and he will be able to answer all your questions - we found him very helpful when we were looking. Hope this helps, Tony & Irene
  16. Hi all, After watching countless videos and researching online trying to educate ourselves on the Kedron Compact range, I still have a few questions please. First a bit about our needs just for some context in case it helps the replies. About 2 or 3 times a year we do some fire trail/track work into private properties and stay for a week. Some of the tracks are pretty extreme steep and are impassable without clearing first etc. The rest of our towing is mainly caravan parks. We have a 2011 VW Amarok which we purchased new. It has towed our van for the last ten years without one single problem, apart from a headlight bulb, one battery, and a set of tyres. It is an early model and only has a GVM of 2800 kg, and GCVM of 5500kgs. Which is not a problem with the Jayco as it GVM is 2200kg. If possible we would like to keep our Amarok as it’s never let us down and is so economical. If we have to we will upgrade to a 580NM V6 model, however the 4 cylinder has been doing the job so well for 10 years, so if it ain’t broke why spend more money. Can you please please confirm.. What is the Tare and GVM of the compact range? How long can you run the van including the fridge off grid in rainy weather? We are used to a gas fridge so power has never been an issue for us in the past. A lot of our remote camping is during the March/April wet season in SE Queensland, and we also run a large Engel freezer outside the van. We normally carry extra water in the back of the Amarok and top up during the week. What is the total water carrying capacity of the Compact? Can you have an extra water tank instead of the grey water tank? Can anyone recommend a good annex to suit the Compact. Are they simple to set up and pack up? And lastly, I cannot find any pricing on the Compact range? I understand it will be considerably and you get what you pay for, but an approximate would be useful at this stage. I understand that I could probably call a salesman and get most of my answers, but I am interested in owners first hand opinions based on experience with the Compact. Thankyou in advance Allan
  17. Good morning all, my name is Allan. My wife and I are not Kedron owners (Yet). However we are trying to plan ahead a little bit and will be looking to upgrade our current Jayco. At this point the Kedron compact seems to stand out ahead of the pack. Thankyou
  18. Hi Leeance, still love our 200 series, and have found that driving around town is great .No body roll and very responsive. Always a pleasure to drive including when towing. We just completed a 8000 km trip up north, dusty roads so she had a birthday done professionally looks like new again . Congratulations and enjoy your new ride . John
  19. Hi It's over 12 months since this thread has been contributed to, my question is.... we have purchased a new GXL 200 series and are keen to understand how the gvm upgrade affects the ride when not towing/loaded up for a trip. What are your experiences? Thanks
