our current setup is the 105 series towing the "half an 80 series" trailer. (it just tows sooooo well behind my cruiser)

but 2018 is a ways off...

prefered (upgrade) camper would be a 2nd hand Tvan.

Though a Breakaway w/dinette would be on that same list too.

Hopefully a new van will be ordered later this year, looking at a Evernew off road. Have to sell the Aussie Swag first.

Currently have a patriot X1 but I'm beginning the build on the touring camper soon so it's ready for 2018! Want something more suited to longer term travel so have a custom design in motion.

We went from an Aussie Swag to an Evernew. I wouldn't call it 'going down' but rather 'staying equal'.

El cheapo has been raised from the dead with a new paint job, kitchen and a Trackabout tent top.  It survived its test run up the Cape so should be in good nick to head to the Kimberley's.
Do not PM me for technical advice - start a thread.
