    Quite an easy answer old chap.

    They do it simply so they can piss you miserable old bastards off who are two tight to actually buy one.

    Fair enough huh.

    Ya gotta admit, terry, that when thegent goes ballistic, it's a scene to behold...Must be the result of that constant confinement with the wingman...

    He should take one of those safety courses on Confined Space and stay the fook away from sausages...Goes apeshit on that stuff, he does...

    Only paupers and pikeys would want a piece of shite like you have highlighted.

    No one in their right mind could call driving around Australia on main roads,on their own, parking up and sleeping in a fucking wreck such as yours enjoyment.

    Then to begin the same monotonous journey the next day has to be close to hell on earth as anyone could imagine.

    You must have an ulterior motive, rather than state my dark suspicions,I will let others make up their mind.

    Btw were you ever a scout leader?

    I have mounted a bike carrier on the back of my van to carry my Postie Bike. I decided against it and now the rack holds a very large tool box which has increased my storage space significantly. Sold the bike. If even want to pack a bike I'll just of load the tool box.
    I do not give Patsycat " The Horn " thank Fuk.

    Terry, if I had my way, caravans would be taxed annually at 5,000, banned from any road or motorway between April and October and confined to travel in other months between 0100hrs and 0500 hrs. Any driver who tows one of these things and jack-knifes it on any public highway should be summarily shot, assuming he survives the crash.

    They are a pestilence and only fit for folk who can't afford hotels. I always make a point of knocking back those stupidly large wing mirrors fitted to the towing car when I pass one on foot.

    Hate the fuckers, really.

    Na mate,

    You are talking about shitty fuking Engerland where pickeys and other low income paupers have no other choice but to freeze their balls off in some shitty old caravan park.

    Us bronzed Aussies do it for the adventure, brilliant scenery and the great out doors.

    But then again you Poms ain't got any of that huh.

    These roof top tents are becoming quite popular. Many of the companies that rent cars to Backpackers are fitting them.

    Every year in Perth there are two major Caravan and Camping shows. Great place to source bargains and see the latest rigs.

    I rather like them but if one wants to use the car one needs to pack it up. Na, that would get old real quick. Depends what one is doing though so there's a different set up to suit all. For long runs across country if on a mission they would be perfect.

    In past years I would head off with my box trailer and tent and camp out down South on the river. Happy days. I only decided to get a van after being rained out a few hundred times. Camped like this for many years.

    In 1997 I circumnavigated in this rig with my then Handbag. The best part was her new car.

    In this pik we are in Queensland somewhere, the rig was great when set up. Oh yes, the road trip is brilliant, just make sure you have the right person sitting next to you or just do it alone.

    You sure knew how to show a girl a good time, Terry.

    Why didn't you take her to Europe? Maybe the trip might have re-kindled some interest, spurred on by an injection of culture counteracting the dreary tedium of an antipodean outback odyssey from nowhere to somewhere back to nowhere. Too mean to spend those dollars, I suppose.

    Terry , why not swallow your pride and extend some good old aussie hospitality to the miserable old gent.
    Invite him on one of your trips around oz.
    With the old coont supplying the snags and your expertise of swinging off a fire house , you may both find there is no need for a wingman.

    Now this is awesome. Have you had problems with crocs staying so close to the shore? Looks to be a top spot for some diving
