As well as having US Lightweight, High End US 5vers, Custom, local manufacturers, you are seeing more locally made large 5vers. Vehicle tugs are dvided 50/50 between US HD Pickups and everything else

How many US state and federal parks would allow that RV? Impractical! And cab over engine. Loud. That tow vehicle would make lousy transportation around the area.

Kind of an odd looking 5th wheel, a real shortage of windows. I wonder why. And the drop at the rear is kind of...different.

Good question. Could be built for someone who is a travelling tradesmen. Think a lot of airconditioning as this was shot in Darwin

Very much not a problem. Have you noticed that noone mentions pusher Class A's with the engine in the back? A Retired gent is first to an accident.

Yes a lot of variety. On the FB page I got these crom everyone was very happy with their set up. US 5vers need electtics, appliances and suspensions chaned for Australian use.

Robert, I enjoy looking at the pic you post of the down under selection. I'd like to see more shots of the interiors. They are sooooo much nicer than in the American made trailers.
