    If one just circumnavigates Australia on Highway 1 with no off trips its around 15000 KLM. So the average car pulling a van may get 7 KLM to 1 litre.

    7 KLm into 15000 = 2142 Liters in fuel x Average 1.80 per litre. = $ 3857 Just for fuel.

    Add car servicing, breakdowns, tolls and what not, one is looking at some big money just to run the car. Pray to god one does not breakdown in the middle of outback Queensland and needs towing. Fuk me, better just to burn the foking rig.

    I'm being conservative here as most punters crank 20 K KLM going around and way up north fuel can run at $ 2 per litres. In the cities around $ 1.40.

    Add Caravan Park fees, food and lots of piss one drinks on the trip its advisable to have a shite load of cash assigned to the road trip and not worry about the cost.

    Just spend freely and enjoy, If one worries about what it will cost just don't bother going. In Cairns City the main caravan park charges $80 per night in high season just to park ones shitty van.

    To be cost effective the longer one is on the road the much better as it all pans out.

    Also these days there are many brilliant free camps where one can bunk up for the night for free so outside the cities many make use of these.

    That's my go, I can just camp anywhere as I'm self sufficient with my rig.

    I do my own oil changes as well so there's fair money saved there.

    Oh yes, the great Aussie road trip. Ain't been around Australia for 18 years.

    I'm going again. Far North Queensland is the go.
    I do not give Patsycat " The Horn " thank Fuk.

    seems he's well known in margeret river Kalgoorlie and port headland his act is the spoons,and he pays people in casks of kaiser stuhl, to come watch himself make a kunt of himself............

    The level of accommodation that Terry57 finds acceptable is fucking appalling.
    He is Trip Advisor in reverse, look at his travel threads find the flea pit he has been staying in and avoid at all costs.

    He should open a website "dosshouse.com".

    Whilst in Phitsanulok I stumbled across the hovel he called home whilst there - atrocious, my cat has had better accommodation when I have been on holiday.

    I would advise him to upgrade his little travelling love shack if he wants to attract in Australia the type of trade he plies for in Silom Road.

    Just trying to help Tezza.

    Firstly Icearse,

    I'm very happy you are assisting me in this thread. It's gives me a warm squishy feeling deep inside that you do care.

    Now,

    Firstly we must get the facts sorted and that is when I go camping in Australia its a bint free trip end of story. I'm a nasty anti social road warrior when traveling and avoid people like the plague.

    I get pissed off looking at myself in the mirror. It's a ghastly fookin sight mind you. Maybe not quite as ghastly as your hideous dial but ghastly all the same.

    My Camper is packed full with cartoons of Coopers Sparkling Ale, bottles of scotch,
    plenty of food just in case someone drops the bomb and a few ounces of top quality hydroponic mull used for medicinal purposes of course.

    So there you have it, simply no room for a Hand bag.

    That said, when I come back to Thailand I take my Handbag on a nice road trip and stop in Hotels.

    She's a lucky girl my hand bag. Loves me long time.

    That said, in 97 I took a Hand bag around Australia on a massive road trip, her parents lived in Townsville so that was the half way mark.

    Pain in the fukin Arse mate, For her it was all about getting up to Townsville and then back to Perth. ?

    For me it was about everyday on the road experiencing the trip.

    Lucky we had plenty of top class drugs to get us through. I would of done an Ivan Millat on her.
    We split up after 7 years thank Fuk.

    Now that leads me into an observation of the great " Grey Nomad " as they call them in Australia.

    So bill works 45 years and retires with a massive wedge of Superannuation and decides to buy a new 4 wheel drive and new caravan and go on the road with his fat ugly wife who he don't like that much. She dislikes him more though.

    Can't fuk the bint off, bill is shit scared of losing half his Super so he hangs in there.

    So we have all these old fuks banged up with there bints 24/7 in a small confined space. I pity those poor bastards. A fate much worse than death this one.

    Na, no bints, be free and power on down the road.

    What it is to be squeezed between those twin perils of Terry's fears, the clashing rocks of Scylla and Charybdis that represent entombed in a dull marriage or rendered impecunious by an escape.

    If we were all like Terry, society would cease to function.

    Everyone has a different idea of the rig they need, for me it's light and simple and able to set up within 15 minutes so this is my ideal rig. Also I don't go off road, no need to so I use a road car and van. The van above is the new version of mine except it folds out at both ends to create the extra bed. I don't need that so was very lucky to source a very rare van that slides out on one side only. I payed 5.5K and spent 1 K modifying it. The new version is 18 K. Not bad I suppose, they hold their value.

    Na, you got it fuked up again Thegent , marriage is a brilliant institution, I respect it but it's not my go. Don't mind shacking up but that peace of paper don't mean a pinch of shit to me. When the gigs over its over.

    What I don't respect is the weak arsed Males who stay within that Marriage when it is clearly fuked. The world is full of these poor miserable tards.

    And if more were up front about what they consider is the correct way for them to live more would be contented like I am.

    You hate that Eh Thegent. I'm free as a bird and you're stuck here hating every fokin minute.

    Suck it up mate.

    These are quite popular with the small car owner. Quality canvas keeps these rigs bone dry in a storm. Most important part of these rigs is the quality of the canvas, never buy cheap canvas.

    This rig is the Rolls Royce of serious off road rigs. South African made fully imported and worth some serious dollars. If one is planning serious off road travel one would be wise to buy something like this. Outback roads will destroy a normal caravan in Days.
    Need a serious 4 wheeler to tow it as well. My mate bought a second hand one and laid out some serious cash. He loves it.

    My dear chap, we're all prisoners of our own circumstances and doomed to wend our futile way towards perdition. I quite like some company along the way and have the perfect wingman. Your solitary perambulations in the bush wouldn't appeal but horses for courses, as they say.

    Still, perhaps you could clear something up for me which has been a source of puzzlement for years when I spent hours in traffic jams caused by those bloody caravans. Why do they always name something so mundane and ugly as these gauche boxes on wheels with oxymoronic model descriptions such as, in your case, the " Swift " or the " Firestorm " and, even more preposterously, the " Marauder " ?

    Originally I was toying with the idea of buying one of these roof tops tents and mounting it on a box trailer. Glad I did not because what I have now is perfect.
    This rig is set up for motorbike touring. Bloody great idea, plenty of storage and very light. Well priced at 2 + K.
