  1. Keep your eye on the 'Sale' section of the forum something might pop up there. Also on the Facebook Kedron page sometimes has vans. Read, read, read. It will all start to make some sense. Make sure it has a diesel heater. Toyotas are certainly the way to go for a car.
  2. Would be interested to. Ours is still working but 7 years old so no doubt will need to be replaced in next couple of years. Bugger they stopped making RPD218
  3. We have an inverter in our van and generally use it however for extended stays and lousy weather at times we have also used power banks as well. They can be charged whilst you drive to and from places in the car for the day or when you go to the next place. Ordinary small one will work on phone and ipad I am using Cygnett 15,000mah. Picked it up from a telstra shop in our travels. macbook pro requires a much stronger power bank. I am using Cygnett USB-C 27,000mah. Picked this up from Harvey Norman shop after much mucking around. These can be precharged and only have to be topped up when needed.
  4. This was sent to me. I hope you take it in the vein it was intended in todays social distancing. My first thought...some people just have to much time on their hands at present. What do you call a gathering of 30 people? Four weddings and a Funeral. gathering
  5. Just not sure how much longer they will allow us free movement so finding a place to stay and work out from there until things are more clearer
  6. Our trip to Tassie has had a strange twist. We have been here since Early November and were to go home Early May. Now that the boarders are locked we can't go to Qld or WA as we are considered non essential travel and would require 14 day isolation in at least NSW and QLD or SA and WA (not Vic yet I don't think). Some states do not consider isolation in your caravan good enough. Possibly because you would be in a caravan park or free camp where people are to close not sure. This is just how at stands as at 12 noon today. At this point we are leaving our options open and have left the sailing date stand in case things change for the better!!! Hope everyone stays well and we shall see how this pans out
  7. If you mean the very front boots (where the batteries are kept) we are also experiencing this problem after all the rain. We presume that because they lean that the channels get full and overflow into this area. Just pulled out 3 very soggy towels. Anyone come up with a solution we are all ears???
  8. My goodness you are getting a lot of people for the Australia Day Gathering.  Have fun

      Yes, it should be a good weekend, dinner at the pub Sat night and morning tea and games on Aust day, thong throw etc. Will post pics.

      Love following your adventures, enjoy Tassie, brings back great memories.




  9. Yes unfortunately people can be real pigs and not clean up after themselves.
  10. How and where do we replace the fuel filter tony - don't leave us hanging. You know some of us aren't as clever as you.
  11. What a great roll up. Well done Tony it certainly looks like your organisational effort was greatly appreciated looking at all of the smiling faces. Have a great gathering.
  12. So jealous I can't come. Don't forget to send me pictures so I can put on the banner - Have fun
  13. Hopefully this is the end of your van troubles and you can again enjoy your travels in WA.
  14. I hate it when Tony is right. I had to look up what a spanner was before I replied. Lucky Val knows what he is doing as my only contribution for his replacement of the spring was to show him where my local mechanic works. Safe travels Tony and Annie. Regards Paul.
  15. Yeah, scarce as hens teeth those cream buns
