Not sure I would paint it black if mostly parked in the summer sun.

It is Australia. Maybe being upside down makes things backwards as well?

4 fresh water tanks? That's, ummm, interesting.

Pointing out obvious flaws isn't "trying to tear them apart".

What's really too bad is the way some folks overlook major problems with solar systems, simply because they want solar to work as well as the alternatives.

The emperor has no clothes.

Yes it is in the factory. Like an extreme 4x4 Pickup is usually on the showroom rather than the outdoors


As the person who photographs the cars we sell on our used-vehicle lot: things always photograph the best, in shade. More detail comes through - and if I was selling something this interesting, I would park it in the shade too ;-)

I LOVE the idea of an all-electric RV. Thanks for posting that.

No one has yet answered the perennial and obvious question: why does Australia have such a wide variety of "boondockable" trailers, while the USA does not? One would think that our much larger population would justify a variety of niche manufacturers.

Someday soon, some smart person is going to figure out how to import those wonderful caravans in bulk and will make a lot of money.

Very cool. As usual, the Aussies produce another outstanding RV.

Same thing happened on here with the Bolus.
I hope Robert keeps posting new and interesting stuff from down there.

Yes, it is the " tall poppy" syndrome

It appears manufacturers in Australia are starting to produce and export them to the US

They the 48V Caravans are starting to appear. As well the chassis can help the tow vehicle move the Caravan as well
