  1. We just want to put on record our sincere thanks to Ashley and David for fixing our well out of warranty van at their significant cost. Few if any other manufacturers would entertain doing this. Once again, great work Gall boys - take a bow. Gary & Lee

  3. Just back home in Victoria from getting the ATV 2 serviced in Brendale. The Kedron family go above and beyond in their service. Well worth the trip from Victoria besides it is a good excuse to have a couple of weeks break. A big endorsement to Kedron

  4. Last week when I raised the topic about the height of number plates on our vans, I was pointed in the direction of Kedron by both Chris and Gavin who said they (Kedron) were providing brackets that will allow us to comply with the regulations. On Friday morning I e-mailed my little problem to Kedron and within a matter of minutes (no exaggeration!) I was contacted by Robyn Eales from the service department seeking information about the van and advising that she'd forward a bracket that mounts between the tyres. It was late Friday when I eventually got the info and sent

  5. Hi Everyone, I think it would be beneficial to us all to collate a National Caravan Service Directory. Whether it be a standard undercarriage service or some unplanned repairs when you are a long way from home it makes sense to at least have a short list I am more than happy to collate and post a list but need your input The more input received the better the list For the sake of uniformity I suggest using the template below over to you regards Peter State : City / town : Business / Contact name : Address : Ph: Web

  6. Well, we went to the Brisbane Caravan show and have finally placed our order for a brand spanking new XC-3 Compact.The team at Kedron were really helpful as always and it was great to stir up the Patriarch (Baz) with my Qld jersey. Now, we wait until May 18 and in the meantime get the van's parking area at home all set up. Finally got the new DVD on Maytown - if you haven't seen it, it is the most extreme treatment for the van and the drivers that the Boys have done in 20 years of filming.

  7. Hi, I was just listening to the arvo programme on the ABC (Brisbane) Programme host started talking about a girl who was with her grandmother when she (grandmother) had a fall and injured herself. The granddaughter called 000 and the operator talked her through the process of downloading 'Emergency +' on her smartphone. This app gave the ambo's the GPS coordinates of her exact location, so they could attend and perform the marvellous work/service that they do! My suggestion, go to the App store do a search for Emergency + and download (its free) from this app you can

  10. My wife and I have cancelled three holidays for 2020 - for obvious reasons. Whilst self-isolated at home - we decided to plan our 2021 holidays. Having no real preferences where to go, we put a dartboard in the kitchen and attached a paper map of Australia. We decided wherever the dart landed, would be the location of next yearโ€™s holidays. My wife then threw three darts. It seems that we are spending our holidays behind the fridge next year.

  14. Hi All, long time since I posted on this site. The reason for todays post is that I have finally after 10 years of trying fixed the dust Ingres problem that I have had with our van. The answer was that the pressure on the inside had to begetter than the pressure on the outside. This has been achieved by installing a CaraFan in place of the exisiting Fantastic Fan. The CaraFan was created by Lyons Air-conditioning in Perth. It provides high volume filters air into the caravan cabin keeping the inside pressure above that of the outside pressure. I had it fitted by the Kedron people at the factor

  15. We are camped in the South West Of WA, just South of Margaret River, in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. The campground is called Jarrahdene. This is a drop dead gorgeous spot, set among flowering banksias and vines and ferns. Quite a few of the sites fit a good sized caravan and we have a nice big site with the usual wooden table and chairs and fireplace. Nearby are toilets and a covered kitchen with gas barbeque, and a dump point. And both Margaret River township and Augusta are short drives away. Equally important, we have reasonable phone and internet reception.

  16. You may be aware that the Kedron Owners Group makes yearly donations to the RFDS. It is great to know that we are helping such a worthy cause and that if there was trouble while we are travelling this great country the RFDS would be there to assist. Wishing you all safe travels over the upcoming festive season.?????

  18. Hello Pepper, I can assure you that you won't have an issue with Kedron. I reason I say this is because Kedron replaced our air cond while in Broome (No charge) when the van was 4 years out of warranty. I had a leaky sink tap while in Lawn Hill and Kedron sent us a new one ........No charge and the van is 6 years out of warranty. I broke the neck off my diesel heater tank (My fault) and they sent me a new tank ........ you guessed it .......no charge. I broke the flap of the outside power point and .............yes .............. Kedron sent me a new power point to Alic

  19. Hi Guy's, My two bobs worth.... Your choice/decision..... about the train coming to the 'east' side. Not knowing anything about your 200...... and its current service history....would like to think it's up to date, so a heap of spares may be unnecessary. My suggestion ... travel around the south east area of Qld...... for as long as you think is reasonable, then back to the factory to 'fix' up any glitches ....that may pop up. (Pine Rivers Showground) is a great place to stay only 10 minutes away from the factory...Helen & Eric are the caretakers there....ve

  26. The Brothel Parrot . . . A woman went to a pet shop where she immediately spotted a large, beautiful parrot. There was a sign on the cage that said $50.00. 'Why so little,' she asked the pet store owner. The owner looked at her and said, 'Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of prostitution, so it says some pretty vulgar stuff.' The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird any way. She took it home and hung the bird's cage up in her living room and waited for it to say something. The bird looke

  27. Yesterday we were travelling on the Western Fwy into Brisbane. Minding our own business, enjoying the drive towards the โ€˜factoryโ€™ we heard a noise from under the bonnet and an unusual smell through the dash vents. Moments later I lost the power assist from the steering and brakes.........luckily there was a verge on the roadside that we could make a hasty โ€˜safeโ€™ stop. Upon stopping, after opening the bonnet, I found that the A/C compressor had seized & thrown/destroyed the serpentine drive belt resulting in loss of steering & braking assist.

  31. A truckie walks into an outback cafe with a full-grown emu behind him. The waitress asks them for their orders. The truckie says, 'A hamburger, chips and a coke,' and turns to the emu, 'What's yours?' - 'Sounds great, the same,' says the emu. A short time later the waitress returns with the order 'That will be $9.40 please,' and he reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change and pays. The next day, the man and the emu come again and he says, 'A burger, chips and a coke.' - 'Sounds great, I'll have the same,' says the emu. Again the truckie reaches into his pocket and pays with exact

I thought what the hell is that. Has something got in the bag, I thought I could see a little pair of eyes peering out at me. I was driving so I leaned forward, picked up the bag, put it on the passenger seat and there it was again, more rustling and little eyes looking out behind the prawn crackers, I thought its got to be a rat or a mouse or something, so I carefully pulled the bag down ...

It was a great few days and Kilkivan Bush Caravan Park was a fantastic location for it to be held. It was good catching up with the members new and old ...................."old" ....meaning long term (maybe). Well done everyone. Cheers Steve & Kerry

  38. Hi Joiners, just saw your post...call me slow! We put our order in for the XC-3 Compact at the show and expect delivery in May 18. We hummed and ha'ad for some time, but opted for the Compact because of the ease of towing and the ability to not have to shell out for a bigger tow tug. Having done a lot of camper-trailing and tent camping the smaller van won't be an issue, I expect. See you out there somewhere.

  41. Hi to all, I thought I would share a conversation that I have recently performed on our Kedron. We got sick of being unconfortable with our Cafe style seating. First I removed the cafe style dinett from the van, which meant that there was damaged internal paneling. I removed this and took the van to Kedron who replaced the panneling and built a new wheel arch cover. Great job by Ashley and the crew. I purchased two Nordic 21 chairs which in my opinion were a little low for the van. I raised these by 45 mm as by installing a block of wood as showmen in one of the photos. The chairs were posi

  43. I have already provided advice to Danno elsewhere on our experience with Kedron and our two vans. (We are onto our second van). But in light of previous comments and allusions here in posts above I will say clearly that we are delighted with our van/s and with the service offered by Kedron through the Gall family and factory staff. The van is strong and structurally solid. It has been well thought out and is an end product of a lot of testing in a real life situation by the brand. Now I add that I am not one eyed about Kedron. Can they be improved? Undoubtedly; no

  47. Hi Ricky, Welcome to this forum, & good on you for thinking about purchasing a Kedron. For my two bobs worth, I would be very hesitant in letting my Kedron out of my sight........even to my best friend! Every Kedron is custom built with as many features & extras as requested by the purchaser. I don't know, you haven't indicated if you have caravanned before, if you have & enjoy/like the vanning lifestyle then I'm sure you will enjoy the benefits of owning a Kedron. If you haven't vanned before, can I suggest that you do a Google search for hire vans & follow that line. It's goo

I had put a trip report over in the Owners private section and normally do not place trip reports in the more public section. But I absolutely should place the report here in recognition that this is where I asked for advice! So thank you for the timely reminder. We travelled on the track from 3 to 9 June.
