    Welcome to KOG, I believe you will find us a friendly group & generally very proud owners of the Kedron product.

    There is lots of Kedron & general 'caravan' information on this website, if there is something you cant find or not sure of.....just ask!

    Looking forward to meeting you down the road one day.

    Travel safe!

    Thankyou both.

    Hi Allan. We have a 2020 compact with an extra water tank (260L in total) and grey tank. So far we have stayed off grid for 10 days with no issues re water. If we fill all tanks we have very little payload (about 150kg). Generally we leave the drinking water tank empty (giving us 200l of water which is heaps), depending on how long we will be away and what sort of payload we require. 

    Re the power: we have 300ah lithium, 1600w inverter, 240w solar and slimline compressor fridge. The fridge uses a lot of power and when there is poor quality of sunlight it does become a problem. We have considered getting a generator.
    As far as price is concerned, I believe CP5’s with scrub pack are around 120k ish, but I think you probably need to talk to Paul at the sales centre for a more accurate quote. 

    Thanks guys, some very useful information there.

  3. Hi all,

    After watching countless videos and researching online trying to educate ourselves on the Kedron Compact range, I still have a few questions please.


    First a bit about our needs just for some context in case it helps the replies. About 2 or 3 times a year we do some fire trail/track work into private properties and stay for a week. Some of the tracks are pretty extreme steep and are impassable without clearing first etc. The rest of our towing is mainly caravan parks. We have a 2011 VW Amarok which we purchased new. It has towed our van for the last ten years without one single problem, apart from a headlight bulb, one battery, and a set of tyres. It is an early model and only has a GVM of 2800 kg, and GCVM of 5500kgs. Which is not a problem with the Jayco as it GVM is 2200kg. If possible we would like to keep our Amarok as it’s never let us down and is so economical. If we have to we will upgrade to a 580NM V6 model, however the 4 cylinder has been doing the job so well for 10 years, so if it ain’t broke why spend more money.


    Can you please please confirm..

    What is the Tare and GVM of the compact range?


    How long can you run the van including the fridge off grid in rainy weather? We are used to a gas fridge so power has never been an issue for us in the past. A lot of our remote camping is during the March/April wet season in SE Queensland, and we also run a large Engel freezer outside the van.


    We normally carry extra water in the back of the Amarok and top up during the week. What is the total water carrying capacity of the Compact? Can you have an extra water tank instead of the grey water tank?


    Can anyone recommend a good annex to suit the Compact. Are they simple to set up and pack up?


    And lastly, I cannot find any pricing on the Compact range? I understand it will be considerably and you get what you pay for, but an approximate would be useful at this stage.


     I understand that I could probably call a salesman and get most of my answers, but I am interested in owners first hand opinions based on experience with the Compact.


    Thankyou in advance Allan
