Robert, I enjoy looking at the pic you post of the down under selection. I'd like to see more shots of the interiors. They are sooooo much nicer than in the American made trailers.

Robert, I enjoy looking at the pic you post of the down under selection. I'd like to see more shots of the interiors. They are sooooo much nicer than in the American made trailers. When they post on their FB page I will post them. Interiors for Caravans and Motorhomes are a lot better than the US ones Two photos from a Sunliner Navian Motorhome., very much Australian style https://i.postimg.cc/gjtpD4y7/mg0329mb.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/W4Tydggq/mg0568mb.jpg

RE: Aussie 5th Wheelers are getting more numerous and bigger

Thanks Robert, always enjoy seeing the difference in rigs down there Yes a lot of variety. On the FB page I got these crom everyone was very happy with their set up. US 5vers need electtics, appliances and suspensions chaned for Australian use.

RE: Aussie 5th Wheelers are getting more numerous and bigger

Biggest problem w/any cabover whatever, always 1st one on scene of an accident. Very much not a problem. Have you noticed that noone mentions pusher Class A's with the engine in the back? A Retired gent is first to an accident.

RE: Aussie 5th Wheelers are getting more numerous and bigger

Kind of an odd looking 5th wheel, a real shortage of windows. I wonder why. And the drop at the rear is kind of...different. Good question. Could be built for someone who is a travelling tradesmen. Think a lot of airconditioning as this was shot in Darwin

Aussie 5th Wheelers are getting more numerous and bigger

As well as having US Lightweight, High End US 5vers, Custom, local manufacturers, you are seeing more locally made large 5vers. Vehicle tugs are dvided 50/50 between US HD Pickups and everything else https://i.postimg.cc/QNJk2DHx/FB-IMG-1604965371871.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/66F2b1h5/FB-IMG-1604965429348.jpg

RE: Ford 7.3 v8

You all realize that the RV versions of this 7.3 drivetrain will not be appreciably better than the outgoing V10, right. It’s disappointing that the chassis models get old technology and less power. Less GVWR and GCVWR in the case of Winnebago Gas Motorhomes, which is surprising for a larger engine.

RE: Australian Off Road Caravan experience explained

See my follow up post on the new much heavier Caravan and not a Truck but a heavier tow vehicle.

RE: Australian Off Road Caravan their new model

Very tuff looking. Makes our US trailers look like sissies. Love that generator storage. TY for posting. Heaviest Off Road Caravan was released not long ago, a 12,000lb GVWR model

Australian Off Road Caravan their new model

I posted earlier his previous Off Road Caravan, this is his slightly longer somwhat heavier Caravan. This is his Youtube video describing it New Off Road Caravan that is condiderably heavier than the families previous one
RobertRyan 08/26/20 01:17am Travel Trailers
RE: Australian Off Road Caravan experience explained

According to the manufacturer he is now thinking of a 4 tonne 8,800lb Off Road Caravan.Their current range does cover rhat weight, so he will be going to someone else. What tow Vehicle is another question a US HD Pickup or a Japanese Truck? Many are now switching to the 4x4 Japanese Trucks because of their much greater payload capacity https://i.postimg.cc/HkWPSFNw/0001550-1000-jpeg.jpg

RE: Australian Off Road Caravan experience explained

I didn't watch the whole video, but I was really impressed by the suspension and brakes on the trailer. Looked like it could handle any conditions. I also really liked the custom storage body on the truck. I might watch other videos, I would like to see the rig in action off-road. I watched another of their videos, where they were on the road talking about safe towing speeds (100 km/hr) and all the idiots on the road. Just like the US, 60-65 mph is a good towing speed but there are always those who just have to go faster. Also the importance of good roadside assistance, which came in handy when their truck blew a head gasket in the middle of nowhere. Yes Off Road Caravans are now very common hwre. They had an online survey of OffRoad Caravans 54 manufacturers were listed. Masda BT50 a Global version of a,Midsize truck was the " tug". Engine is the Ford 3.2 Diesel that has problems seizing due to lubfication problems.Yes the custom storage body is very similar to others you can get here. Of course Idiots are everywhere

RE: Australian Hodge Podge of 5th Wheelers

Owner eventually downsized to a US HD Pickup version as he foubd he did not need the Mack/ Renault Class 8 Truck https://i.postimg.cc/k4BcYMkJ/images-jpeg-5.jpg
