  3. Welcome to the forum. As you can see (Events - far right shows notification, in financial members area gives details) we have a gathering on the 14th to 17th of July at one of the Kedron Owners Group members private property's at Kilkivan. Since it is only in the financial members area you would have become a member first. Sometimes we do have gatherings for financial and non financial members. Enjoy your Kedron, we have had ours for nine years so far and done many rough/bitumen miles in it.

    RACQ wouldn't insure our van when we first got it. Must try them this time now that it is 9 years old and see if they will. Usually just go CIL
  6. Wanting to join the forum and keep in touch. Looking forward to meeting other members and maybe joining you at your next get together.
  7. Hi, webmaster - you might want to put AGM batteries instead of AGM as I thought someone had put one of our business reports here, not you were selling AGM batteries?

    May you share some thoughts on YOUI insurance? someone suggested it to me for insurance. So, it would be helpful to know more about it.

  10. Yep. As above. Stay longer if at all possible. Tassie is our favourite place on the planet. Couple of small suggestions: If you're thinking of the west coast, which is beautiful, check your rig dimensions and the size limits on the Corinna Ferry - see their website: https://www.corinna.com.au/barge-access-and-times. We can't fit on the ferry with our 18'6" ATV. Secondly, if you're taking the Lyell Highway towards Queenstown, take your time over the steep, windy narrow hill at, I think it's Gormanston. If you've got a UHF, I'd call up and check if there's any heavy vehicles coming over the hill before you proceed. Have a great trip!
  11. Welcome Marty, I can’t help you but I’m sure someone on this forum will be able to help. Perhaps ask at the Kedron factory as I think the timeframe would vary according to their workload. Sandra
  12. Yes - that's exactly what I meant - how long is the current Kedron lead time for them custom-building a new Kedron AT5 ? And what advice can others provide in going about doing that... M
  13. I am going out on a limb here, but I assume you do not really mean “build your own Kedron” but rather, you are asking how long the Kedron factory is currently taking to custom build a van?
  14. Hi everyone, I'm a new member as I'm keen to find out how long the lead time is on building your own custom-build Kedron AT5 caravan? Plus are there any pitfalls to doing so or things to watch out for ?? Would love to hear from anyone that's done that recently. Many thanks.

Improves the ride for both tow vehicle and caravan. You can google them but it is brilliant. Have renewed front window, 2 x large bedside windows and front bra last year. All original manuals and instructions are included. NOTES: We have owned our Keddie since December 2020. We have travelled about 10,000k’s both along the coast and western QLD and cannot fault this van. We have lived in it full time for 12 months with no need to connect to mains power. The Combo ensuite gives much more room inside and has plenty of room for Ross who is 6’2”. The only reason we are selling is because we have brought a rural property and our travel plans have changed. We are the third owners of this Keddie and it has always been well maintained and cared for. We have found Kedron owners groups and the Kedron company to be helpful and a world of knowledge if needed, it has been a completely good experience owning this van and if our circumstances were different we would not hesitate to pack it up and head around Oz in complete confidence knowing we could travel anywhere and be off grid for as long as we liked. We also have if wanted; Induction hot plate. Hardcore portable lights with yellow bulbs, EZYWASH Portable Twin Tub Washing Machine, VAST Satellite Dish, Decoder and Cables. A basic set of cutlery, plates, cooking needs which is enough for a starter kit. We are happy to answer serious enquires and help buyer with getting to know the set up. Can send more pics, videos or information. Has current Road Worthy Certificate and Gas compliance paperwork and is ready to go. Cheers from Ross and Leah 0428343922
  17. Hi Chris. I’m not sure where to start here. I have frequented Kedron numerous times over the years and have seen a number of vans being built. The vinyl flooring is laid in one piece and bonded to the timber floor underneath. Then the furniture/ cabinets are installed. I would suggest replacing the vinyl flooring would be a major drama. I haven’t heard of anyone doing it. However, like you, I sure would be interested to hear if anyone has. All the best with this project. Cheers from Pete
  18. Does anyone know how easy it is to replace flooring? Our van is a 2009 Top Ender, and quite a few knocks and dents are making the floor look old and tired. I am guessing it’s a major job, and it’s not one the factory were keen to undertake. The floor is the vinyl wood-look. Has anyone had their floor replaced?
  19. Irish Furniture Dealer Murphy, a furniture dealer from Dublin, decided to expand the line of furniture in his store, so he decided to go to Paris to see what he could find . After arriving in Paris , he visited with some manufacturers and selected a line that he thought would sell well back home. To celebrate the new acquisition, he decided to visit a small bistro and have a glass of wine. As he sat enjoying his wine, he noticed that the small place was quite crowded, and that the other chair at his table was the only vacant seat in the house. Before long, a very beautiful young Parisian girl came to his table , asked him something in French (which Murphy could n o t understand) , so he motioned to the vacant chair and invited her to sit down. He tried to speak to her in English, but she did not speak his language. After a couple of minutes of trying to communicate with her, he took a napkin and drew a picture of a wine glass and showed it to her. She nodded, so he ordered a glass of wine for her. After sitting together at the table for a while, he took another napkin, and drew a picture of a plate with food on it, and she nodded. They left the bistro and found a quiet cafe that featured a small group playing romantic music. They ordered dinner, after which he took another napkin and drew a picture of a couple dancing. She nodded, and they got up to dance. They danced until the cafe closed and the band was packing up. Back at their table, the young lady took a napkin and drew a picture of a four-poster bed. To this day, Murphy has no idea how she figured out he was in the furniture business
  20. Welcome to our group, lots of information and please if want to know anything, just ask on this forum. Someone will be able to help you.
  21. Thanks for approving our membership. We're currently shopping for a used van. Have not yet decided on a Kedron but is on the shortlist. Just waiting for settlement from insurance as our last van and shed were burnt to a crisp. Will be working through owners observations to learn as much as possible about Kedron vans.
