  1. Hi Gordon & Chris, if your arrival day is now Wednesday 22nd, just let Caretaker's know you are with the Kedron group, so we can all be close together, we are not actually planning to arrive until the Thursday or Friday.

    The number for the caretaker is  0438849948, just call when you arrive and they will direct to a good spot.





  2. Very sorry you won't be able to make Kenilworth,  look forward to catching up another time.


  3. We have put a 3 kg front loader in our new Kedron AT5, wanted a 4 kg, but it wouldn't quite fit due to where the wheel arc is located. Camec website have the dimensions of their machines.
  4. Sounds good to us, had a great time last year, love that it is a week earlier, won't class with grand-babies birthday, lol.
  5. Our batteries are 7 years old , I don’t worry about percentages of battery use . I don’t let them go below 12.2 volts . When the batteries were new 12.2 volts was 50% used . Now that the batteries are 7 years older 12.2 volts is 30% used . Nev
  6. Nev & Penny arrive 15th and leave 19th , powered site , wine tour 1 , dinner 2
  7. Don’t be scared of the size of a yank tank , we have a Silverado 2500 and have no problems parking at our local Coles and Woolworths and even the good shops like BCF and Bunnings. My wife drives it all around Brisbane. Cheers Nev
  8. Hi Cheryl & Wayne We live in our van and found the Kedron supplied mattress not the best. After various store bought mattress toppers, egg shells etc we decided to get a new mattress. Makin Mattresses at Nundah, custom made us a made to measure Belissimo mattress, extremely comfortable with an excellent warranty, but a bit on the heavy side, quite expensive and makes the bed very high. But I am glad we have it, so much better, excellent and well worth the money as I said we sleep there every night. Now I see they have a new range called Matilda especially designed for carav
  9. Castlemaine is indeed a beautiful town, very quaint, lots of old buildings, the museum/ art gallery is worth a look. A must try is Castlemaine Rock in a round yellow tin, a yummy hard candy peppermint . I was fortunate enough to have been born there, my grandfather was the town dentist. Cheers Penny
  10. Yes indeed lots of thinking we have revised, altered, re done plans over and over, there are a few things that are must haves and we want more room at the table so it's a bit bigger and a bit wider where you sit as well as maximising storage etc. John and Maureen seem to have made their decisions pretty quickly, but I guess they have been travelling for so many years now that they know what they like. So many things have changed, improved and are now included from when we got our current van 6 years ago. Have fun, it is very exciting. Cheers Penny
  11. Hi Guys, how are you both? It's a wonder you didn't run into Nev at the display yard at Kedron, he has been spending a lot of time there recently. He has been going there several times a week always with pen, paper, plans and a tape measure. We all found Paul to be extremely helpful and he has had a lot of experience at Kedron. As Tony said we are in the process of ordering and designing a new van, as are John and Maureen and another couple who are good friends of ours ( they came to the Xmas gathering). We are going with ATV for weight reasons, although with the Chev we could

  18. Hi , This place can help .https://www.facebook.com/roosystems/
  19. When you buy 240volt chargers always check that they are set to charge your type of battery , same goes with your solar regulator . After my van was 2 years old I realized that my regulator wasn'tset to charge at 14.2 volts , only 13.6 so it would take longer to get to 100%.

  21. You could try large mower shops for a fuel cap .
  22. When my fuel tank cracked ( 3 years old ) around the fitting hole , I thought this was a design fault . I went to Dometic at Brendale with proof of purchase ( caravan purchase details receipt ) and they gave me the updated model tank . They said they had problems with the caps as well .
  23. Queensland N. Q. Truck Align. 53 Sturt St Westcourt Cairns. 40517457 0418777246 I had a wheel wearing really bad on the van after getting a wheel alignment in Brisbane before we left for The Cape in 2015. I found this place on google and Justin Bench did a great job . And only $55 .
  24. Hi 32 Kev , We also live in our van and have 4 x 120ah batteries and 660 watts of soar . Yes they do have so many cycles , the less you drain everyday the longer they last . Cheers Nev
