CARAVAN WEIGHTS EXPLAINED
I reckon it can be anywhere in this woop’n big country.
I reckon it’s the dream of thousands, or dare I invent a word, woopillions of Australians.
I reckon cooking over a campfire adds so much to a meal, the simple act of cooking together around the warmth of the fire, the conversation you have, the laughs, discussing the days activities, a drink or two, not forgetting the smokey flavour … it just tastes better!
The Flinders Ranges, will we ever tire of it? … never!
Will we back? … absolutely!
This is a journey we highly recommend … discover!
It’s about time us vans made a few resolutions, throw a few hints to our owners and get Australia On Track!
I don’t know about you, but I have trouble remembering my vehicle’s registration.
it’s Christmas here in Australia, good cheer, that’s what we will share.
Most well presented parks would (and should) provide this service.
A place to prepare, cook and consume meals, or simply gather for deep and meaningful conversation with fellow caravanners and campers.
Will ya stop at Wilcannia?
I am catching up on social media and see questions asking if it’s safe to stop?
First impressions of driving in probably count for a lot of the queries.
Talking Solar with Steve Moore from Redarc at the 2017 Let’s Go Caravan & Camping Show in SA
Not too many kids will remember their best weekend watching TV, but you can bet they’ll tell all their friends about the weekend by a billabong.
So what drives us, inspires us, or incites us to want to travel the open road?
Something that can be often overlooked is the water content simply because it is a necessity of life and its importance usually outweighs its actual weight. But at a kilogram per litre it can soon add a significant amount to the laden weight of your van. But there is in fact a greater impact water is having on vans than just sheer weight. Its force!
We prepped our filter appropriately, hooked up the water supply and walked away happy in the knowledge we would have an endless flow of crystal clear water from the van tap system for the duration of our stay. Until it stopped after just a few days.
Refrigerators – Compressor or 3 Way
Do you have adequate solar?
3 Way was in your van at time of purchase … why change?
Is gas more reliable?
What’s the cheapest to run?
Well … our preference is a compressor fridge, and in our podcast you’ll find out why.
We spend heaps on a shiny new van, then often scrimp on the extras needed for towing it.
Let’s talk mirrors … strap on, magnetic or the big elephant ears, permanently mounted extendable style?
Getting prescriptions filled … I have read so much on social media about restrictions Australia wide, I wanted to find out more.
Pour a glass, press play, sit back and enjoy the next 13 minutes, perhaps like me, it’ll remind you of what an amazing country we have.
Please read more for our opinion.
A few adjustments, wheel bearings re-greased, a good look over and a pretty good report, we were happy. But it does raise the questions of what happens in a service, how often should we get it done and what is one of the most common faults detected?
