If you combine with the many rental units, there seems to be small explosion in their number. Saw this the other day. There are now 20 manufacturers of Class C, Expedition Vehicles and Class B's in Australia

Interesting that's it's a Jayco. You need that big bumper for all those big ol Kangeroo's that jump in front of you. I think they call them Boomers ? I've looked at the established RV's that are offered down there. Very high quality. Australians like a clean modern look in their rigs which I find appealing. But their quite expensive also. I like the big diesel ones that are on an Iveco or Mitubishi chassis if I remember correctly.

Jayco has nothing to do with the US Brand that is now owned by Forest River in the US, Jayco is still owned by Gerry Ryan . You see " Winnebago's " that have been owned by AVIDA and now Apollo Motorhomes,( that have Apollo and Star RV Rentals in the US and Canada Dream in Canada Tourism holdings a New Zealand company has El Monte Rentals) Not Boomers but " Bull Bars" as well as Kangaroos , you may have cattle,
Buffalo or worse case scenario Camels!
IVECO or Truck based Isuzu or Mitsubishi
An Apollo Motorhomes owned " Winnebago"
