The search begins…

I have been searching on the internet for pop top campervans for sale. The type we want seem to be in short supply. Maybe the good ones the owners love them so much they do not want to part with them. The ones I do see advertised are quite old and I think they are probably the ones the backpackers buy and run around the country then sell again every 6 months or there about. They are priced around $3000 but could be buying lots of problems. So will keep searching.

This weekend it was the motor home and camping show in Brisbane. Ideal we thought and hopped on the train to check it out.

Well, I think the “baby boomer” market was being catered for. The ones we hear belong to the “ski” club (spending kid’s inheritance). Huge caravans, Winnebago’s and all the accessories to make it like home away from home, and costing as much as a small house. In fact many do sell their houses and travel continuously. We want to get into National Parks, maybe park, unobtrusively, in back lanes and out-of-the-way places, for that we need a smaller van.

Our home on wheels is out there. Will just keep visualising it….
