    Just 'cause there isn't a thread yet. Who's going this year? Plans? Dates/Times? I'll be doing it. Taking all the deepop's on a 2 month tour - no, not a 3 hour tour ( I expect we'll be back at some point, not the Gilligan version). 2 weeks at Goldy for the Comm. Games and (seeing we're...

    Bugger - guess who's winch didn't stop winding in?

    Bugger, bugger, bugger! Released the in button to have it keep winding until it pulled through the fairlead, bent the bar slightly, the number plate as well and then kept pulling the rope tighter and tighter until I got to the power cut off and killed power to the whole unit. I'd suggest a...

    Cub forward fold

    Can everyone please go through the bad bits to good bits of this manufacturer and style. See link to new brochure. I think it would be perfect for me - and I am encouragable! With a bit of internal re-arranging it could work...

    Triple (3 car) garage - Free to good home (conditions apply).

    See below ad on ebay for details. I'm trying to sell it but if no one buys it there it can be yours for free (or you can buy it on fleabay if you really want it). If it doesn't go the demolishers will crunch it into little bits. This hurts to lose it but the block must be cleared...

    Beach or bush camping spot between Robe and Beachport

    G'day, heading down this way with the family shortly. Just wondering if anyone can give me a heads-up on a good beach/bush camping spot (fires allowed) somewhere in this area. Thinking to base camp for a couple of days and drive the area so somewhere in between? Can you collect firewood...

    Forward fold campers - do I really like them?

    Think I like the forward fold camper. Q bed - keep SWMBO happy. Room in body of trailer for two sets of bunks - keep 4 mini pops happy. Live outside for the rest. Sounds good to me. Who's got one? What's it like? Good and bad points? Who's researched one and decided not to...

    Seat covers - what do you have/recommend?

    So, looking for seat covers for the front seats of the cruiser - kids can continue to suffer the indignities of leather. Notice the leather gets pretty hot and sweaty very easily - was thinking about sheepskin for this reason. Or is canvas better? Why? This came about because the...

    Looking for a metal fabricator to do some work on my trailer

    G'day all, Does anyone know a metal fabricator or trailer manufacturer that can do some cut and shut work on my trailer. I have some steel lock boxes welded onto the sides of my trailer - see below. With the larger tyres (to match the cruiser) the guards will interfere with the tyres...

    In-line fuse holder

    Righto all you electrical guru's, I believe I'm missing something important here. I bought some in-line blade fuse holders (the ones with the little red led light on them). Knowing all about this stuff I soldered it into the power supply line for an accessory cig. plug socket in the front...

    Cowombat Flat - Head of the Murray River

    Okay, Anzac weekend this year Sschmez (Steve) and I took our finely tuned, lean and fit temples (and our Mt. bikes) on a second attempt to locate the head of the Murray River. We made it to the intersection of the Cobberas Trail and McFarlanes track on the Thursday where we were to begin this...

    Free - natural gas upright stove and matching rangehood

    Just came out of my kitchen. All works (except one auto ignition burner). Probably do with a clean up. Matching rangehood works fine. Obviously pick up only.

    Leaving your campfire - tips

    Okay, so this idea got a bit lost in another post and is quite topical at the moment. It's also hopefully going to prompt discussion on the best way to put out and leave you campfire. I'll start - here's a couple of points I've thought of. 1. Water (or a lot of time) is the only way you...

    Jockey wheel install on oversize trailer

    So I have an enormous box trailer (at least I didn't say deck in a Kiwi accent) and felt the need to put a jockey wheel on it (don't ask why because I don't really know - yes I do, it was there). Due to the fact that it has 2 (obviously over-engineered) 70mm right angle section lengths of...

    Drilling a hole in a length of right-angle steel

    G'day, I've got a cheap 5 x 4 on road box trailer (lucky me!). At the 4wd show amongst other little odds and ends I bought a new jockey wheel commensurate with (matching) the value of my trailer. The drawbar on this trailer is just two lengths of right angle (looks about 70mm). Now, my...

    The cairn at the source of the Murray River!

    Ok, who's actually walked out to the cairn? How, where, when, why? I'd like to get out there but I found rocking horse s@#$t easier than finding any information on getting out there. Where to start from? Marked trail at all? Woeful info on what should be a target destination for...
