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.

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 .

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.

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 caravans and motorhomes etc, might be worth a look.

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.

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.
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 have a TE but , all that extra bar work, unnecessary and they are not as wide as the ATV's (not by much) it does factor into internal space. No final plan as yet, that should happen soon when we go back to see Graham the designer at the factory next couple of weeks.
If you guys want to call Nev about anything he is always happy to have a chat. Happy to give you his number, usually works Thursday and Fridays.

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%.

You could try large mower shops for a fuel cap .

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 .

N. Q. Truck Align.
53 Sturt St
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 .

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 .
Posted November 21, 2016
Hi 32 Kev,
You should be getting 5 years or more from your batteries . With AGM you need to keep them above 12.2 volts . When they get down to 12.2 volts you have used 50% of there power . AGM are designed to work down to 12.2 volts and then recharge to about 13.8 volts .

Have a read before thinking about buying a tow vehicle

I spoke to the guy with the snorkles , if you look at the fitting instructions the air box is different to my 2012.
The snorkel looks like it fits the profile of body (guard) , you would have to do your own plumbing under the bonnet .
That would be a very big job , if it works.

They are in WA , they posted to Cairns for us when we were on the road in 2012 and works great .

What a great time , left home (Brisbane) and travelled to Old Bar , Sydney, Bendeela Reserve Gathering and home via the Putty Road and New England Highway.
The Silverado was fantastic , to Old Bar set cruise on speed limit and set back and relax . Old Bar to Bendeela a bit slower as we were in a convoy of 3 Kedrons.
Bendeela to home set cruise on speed limit , we averaged 20.2 litres per 100ks for the whole trip.
The hills , what hills .
Down hills the exhaust brakes are magic .
The 200 series Cruiser was a great vehicle , travelled over 60,000 ks towing the van.
The Silverado is just so much better all round tug.
I purchased the Silverado second hand ,2012 model with 60,000 ks on the clock.
First thing I did after towing a Topender for 650 ks was change the rear shocks to stop the rear from bouncing along the road (the way the yanks like it). The only way to stop the rear from bouncing when towing the Topender was 30 psi in the bags. I can adjust the bag pressure from in the cab.The vehicle already had airbags fitted . I have to wonder why fit air bags when the problem is with the shocks . The shocks on the vehicle are not heavy duty enough.
On this trip I played around with pressure and 10 psi worked for me, any lower not good for the bags I believe .
Next change front shocks . Don't buy shocks from the USA , they maybe not heavy duty enough .
Posted February 9, 2016
When I drove my 2012 Silverado that purchased about 5mths ago I found the same sort of problem . I found that about 30 psi in the bags helped . The biggest difference was when I put better shockies on the rear .

I had same problem and I would turn the fridge off for 30 seconds every month, this worked until 5 days ago , woke up in morning and 14c .
We had problems from the start , fridge whisper twice . He tells us working fine , yes it works for about a month.
I believe this RPD 215 are not made to use continuously . I know of other vans with same problem .
Best fix take it to the dump where they should all be and buy a RPD218 which is made for our climate.
All you need to do is cut the opening 20mm higher.
