RE: New Rockwood 2910 TS AC not cooling enough

This camper seems to have found a roof unit that works for him. I looked it up on the internet. It was designed and made in Australia. It looks intriguing. It's sold over here as the Atwood Air Command.

RE: God love the Queen!

I know, I know, nothin' to do with RVing; but I just have to congratulate Canadians on what a class act you've got in your Queen, Elizabeth. What a great lady! Past eighty, but sharp (and good humored) enough to pull off what's being referred to as one of the greatest photobombs ever: Walkin' right into the background of someone else's "selfie", grinning from ear to ear. Story here Love love LOVE it! :B http://assets.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.1878539.1406212685!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/gallery_1200/queen-elizabeth-photobombs-australian-hockey-players.jpg width=400 Girls are Field Hockey Players at the current Commonwealth games in Endinburgh

RE: Euro slideout

Only Trakka has done slides on a B, but a Sprinter rear slide Roadtrek here in North America tried a rear slide on a Sprinter. It was the short 144" WB called the SS Ideal. I guess it never caught on. http://www.rv-boondocking-adventure.com/image-files/sprinter-rv-slide-out.jpg only for the bed area not a full slide

RE: Tow me Down

Interesting article, but I'm puzzled by the several references to a "60 mph speed limit" when towing in Europe. That's really only true in a very few countries over there- most restrict towing setups to around fifty mph. Link A very sensible approach to the whole stability problem, I think. theoretical in the UK and some other parts of Europe.You do see 70pmh plus. Yes supposed to be 55mph

RE: Tow me Down

I didn't necessarily mean the European/US standard difference, but some of the physics behind dampening forc e / oscillation / sway and different speeds was pretty interesting if accurate. A bit of exaggeration, but Euro Caravans can be pulled at 70mph with the proper friction damping

RE: Euro slideout

I think that design would be a big hit here in the states. Slideouts on Ducatos common in Australia. Trakka here makes a rear slide for a Class B+ http://www.australianmotorhomes.com.au/SiteFiles/australianmotorhomescomau/umh/3707U/gallery/Sunliner_Motorhome_02.jpg This a Class C you are always comparing Class C's to Class B's. :S WHY? Only Trakka has done slides on a B, but a Sprinter rear slide

RE: Videos Of Off Road Caravans

Robert, could you give an idea of the price of the ones in the videos? In USD? Expensive to US Buyers, from $50,000 to $70,000. They the manufacturers are constantly adding new features i.e Disc Brakes, Fuel cells, Electronic ABS, Sensatrak braking,new composites structures, improved suspension and hitch systems, one touch control panels, pop up TV's LED's etc Sensabrake new braking system

RE: Videos Of Off Road Caravans

Be nice if we could import the chassis and pop it under our existing one. Chassis's plural, very different from what you would find under a US TT. Several different types

RE: Wi Fi availability at RV Campgrounds

I am an "Aussie" that has traveled the US and Canada extensively in a fifth wheeler between 2003 - 2008. In those days WiFi was existent but not in all campgrounds and mostly the Rv'er had to pay for the use thereof. Is WiFi prolific nowadays and is it free at RV Campgrounds? I am planning a trip from LAX to Vancouver, Jasper Cannmore Yellowstone, Tetons and Colarado Rockies in May/June 2015. Just cannot keep away from touring your country. One Aussie innovation that is very popular worldwide. The CSIRO developed it and now is everywhere. CSIRO and the invention of WiFi

RE: Best TV mystery dramas....IMHO

while it is not a mystery, anyone watch Doc Martin ? our favorite shows are Call the mid wife - Doc Martin - and of course 'Downton abbey' - Midsommer mystery - just to name a few. if you watch Doc Martin, do you think there will be another season? Call the Midwife sums up 1950's England very well and some strong story lines

RE: Best TV mystery dramas....IMHO

Not gonna argue about Longmire. Love the show. Funny that Robert Taylor is an Aussie though. Sure has gotten rid of any accent he may or may not have once had. The legion of Aussie actors either gradually get rid of or dramatically get rid of their accents. Magically reappear when off camera

RE: Rugged Aussie trailer

When we lived in OZ we owned a Goldstream pop top off-road camper. Like stated by others, the unsealed roads can be quite corrugated, and would tear up a standard trailer made here in the States. We moved back to the States in early 2014 and sold our 1995 trailer for $10k AUD. Goldstream make some nicely finished and strong Pop Up Folding Trailers and Caravans

RE: Rugged Aussie trailer

That is cool, they have some real unusual RV's in Australia. A north american trailer would not last 5 minutes on some of the roads down there. You could almost tow that thing through the Darien Gap. Actually South African but sold in Australia . As RoyB knows quite a few builders in Australia build something similar A listing of some Campertrailer manufacturers from lightweight to UEV standard Australian CamperTrailer manufacturers

You can get similar interiors here for the coach conversions http://assets.cougar.nineentertainment.com.au/imagegen/p/800/600/assets/traderspecs/2013/04/02/misc/trakkaway700_6.jpeg Horizon Motorhomes Cloth or Leather Seats http://assets.cougar.nineentertainment.com.au/imagegen/p/800/600/assets/momoads/2014/05/21/24/5006827_7674_10.jpg
