Re: Colorado or bust 2016

Thanks from me too Ian. Great pics and looks a wonderful trip.I am hoping to do a similar trip in 2017 with some family. My Dormobile is pretty much identical to Zuma except it's green but unfortunately too expensive to bring over - I'll probably hire something similar to Robin's in the States when ...

Re: Carawagon in NSW?

There was a 'Wanted - Dormobile or Carawagon ' ad on Gumtree under Land Rover in Australia back in June. Hopefully he has an alert going and sees this.

Re: Searching for a Dormobile in Australia

Colin/Jerry - there was that one in Tasmania on Gumtree a couple of years age - also green - probably nearly impossible to trace now.

Was in pieces but saveable from memory.

Re: SWB Carawagon for sale in Australia

Yes same here - he may have said a deceased estate ( not his father's ) but he did seem a little vague about it all.

Re: SWB Carawagon for sale in Australia

Hi Jerry

I spoke to the owner - seems it was his deceased father's project among others - the son was a little evasive about its condition. It's on the Gold Coast so I'm tempted to have a look but the spouse would be more than unhappy if I bought it.

Looks pretty good though.

Re: CASPA - sixpot info

Thanks Mick and Calum - I wasn't really after any figures - I just remember there were a few tips like "run it to 850rpm and ease back the mixture til it sounds like your mother singing you to sleep" or something like that - it then went on to say that this setting never burnt the exhaust ...

Re: Scotland by Carawagon

Hi Calum - in 1975 I worked on the oil rig they built in Kishorn opposite Plockton before the Skye bridge was built. I drove there from London in a splitscreen VW camper after hearing from a Dutch guy in Amsterdam that there were jobs going there. I was employed as a cleaner over Christmas 1974/5 12...
