  1. Thanks Pete, the photos and description are on the caravancampingsales.com website, there is a link in my post.
  2. After moving into an over 50s resort at Beachmere we have decided to sell our ATV. We travelled full time for three years after purchasing it new in July 2007. When we bought a house in 2010 our van was always under cover except for perhaps one trip each year. Kedron class it as 19ft but internally it measures 20ft. It is in excellent condition and always well maintained with many upgrades undertaken, receipts are available. We are asking $49,000 and will also be selling our 2006 100series Landcruiser tow vehicle, if interested a deal could be done. For full details see fol
  3. How silly is Robert. Although the sound is annoying my main beef was that I could not get any program information (EPG). I discovered that the date was wrong, set at Jan 2010, no wonder it could not find any EPG. Made a change in settings to automatically update the time and all is now well.
  4. Any recommendations for a 12 volt TV? In Mid-2015 we purchased a Teac (LEV24A1FHD) TV and have never been happy with it. Can’t get any program information, and the sound is terrible. Time to change.
  5. Robert & Jane Jones will arrive Wed 6th & depart Sunday 10th, will be at AGM & the dinner. Thank you
  6. We are considering a trip over Barrington Tops in November, from Gloucester to Scone, taking our ATV towed by a 100 series. Any information on the road and points of interest would be appreciated
  7. Following a number of favourable comments about insurance through Ken Tame & Associates we have joined CMCA as associate members and had a very competitive quote for our ATV and 100 series cruiser. The policy wording looks good to us with a number of benefits not currently included by other insurers we have investigated. For agreed value insurance of our five yo ATV they require a valuation, has anyone any suggestions where this can be obtained in the Brisbane area, maybe Kedron themselves? The tow vehicle is at market value. Robert & Jane

  9. Hi Richard and Celeste. In answer to your query, yes, we went to Nhulunbuy in June 2009 to visit Jane’s son, and three grandchildren. It was about 700k from Katherine, and 600k of gravel road. There is a road across the top but we understand it is rugged. We got a permit from the Northern Land Council (NLC) in Katherine which cost nothing (surprise) and was good for one day; we took that to mean 24 hrs and spent one night camped on the track. The permit was to travel the road only, no permit was required for the Nhulunbuy lease area but other areas do require a separate permit, your daughter s
  10. Hi Bryan, When I first attacked the wheel alignment problem we were on the road full time but have since settled between Bris and the Sunshine Coast. The van had done 50K, much off-road, so after fitting new tyres, bushes, pins and wheel bearings I decided to take the van into Vehicle Components and have them do an alignment. It took a few hours and cost a little over $200. I learnt much, the first thing was they commented that the A Frame Hinge bolts were not tight enough. I explained I had torqued to 105 lbf.ft as per their drawing. They said this was an error and should have read 150 lbf.f
  11. Hi Bryan, there have been some complicating factors, including an error in Vehicle Components drawings. We are currently visting Vic and will reply in more detail when we return to QLD in about a week Robert Jones
  12. We always turn the Vitro off at the thermostat in our 4.5 yo ATV. The light does not go out so when not in use we remove the globe. We don’t have a plug, that is not normal for a 12 volt appliance. Maybe there has been a change over the years. Robert & Jane Jones
  13. Hi Gazza, We just completed the job you are talking about, having traveled 50K with much over rough territory. Not only was the silicon coming away but we had some screws falling out and some minor cracking. We were able to remove the whole unit without too much trouble and found that some screws were into only the thin ply sheeting. We did what we could to achieve better fixing, mainly using silicon. Sometimes it is better not to have the fixing too solid as there will always be some flexing. We had previously used Sikaflex-Pro to seal off the gaps in the Dometic window frames to stop insects
  14. We have decided to have a new skirt made in welded vinyl at ‘Not Just Canvas’ in Caboolture. We thought about relocating the studs but we would also have needed to add length to the ends. We were worried that further shrinkage could occur and our time, effort and money would have been wasted. The people at ‘Not Just Canvas’ said they had been using the silver material for years and generally had no problems except in two cases after which they now recommend welded vinyl. They surmised that there may have been a bad batch of material. Cheers Robert & Jane
  15. The skirt (van annex, not mini) on our four year old ATV has shrunk, it is now about 50mm short in length, so will need to get a new one made! We have only used it about three times during three years on the road full time. Has anyone experienced this, maybe we need to look at an alternative material? Robert & Jane
