No idea!

But, hopefully, we'll be proud and excited one day.....if we ever get a new van order sorted.
I felt it would be a good idea to get a list of ideal requirements on a sliding scale of
  • must have
  • could be useful if cost and weight ok and
  • would like but can do without
And it's an interesting exercise, particularly when you really want to work to a specific budget!

I have a sneaking suspicion @peterg is working from a budget bigger than mine but he's finalised his....so I may be getting too pedantic. Will see.

:clap2:

About 3 months. Greatly dissapointed when we saw Kimberly Karavan in the flesh. Bushtracker and others were massively overpriced......the new Jayco offroader just didn't seem right either...too cheap and felt it....

Three months to find it seems pretty good to me....we're already at four months and counting.....but are not in a huge hurry.

When do you expect delivery? (You may have stated it but I can't see it)
