I had cognitive behaviour therapy about a dozen years ago and it helped me enormously.

Finishing up swapping over my canopy from my old work ute onto the new work ute this arvo....i removed all my tools from it yesterday morning, called the neighbour over to help get the compressor out, then unbolted the canopy from the old tray and myself and the neighbour wrestled it over onto the new ute's tray (Was heaps heavier then I expected it to be). I then bolted it into position and we wrestled the compressor back into location, then i started putting the tools back in, but had a bbq to attend so called it quits around 3.30 p.m yesterday. Today I finished up putting the tools back in (more so installing the bolts that hold both the mitre saws in location from sliding around), then repositioned the 100mm pipe that holds the straight edges from on top of the canopy to under the tray, then made up a draw system for the back centre area of the canopy from left over ply sheet and heavy duty draw slides that I had sitting in the's all ready to drive to work tomorrow morning now, and a few things will be easier to access then how I previously had them set up 8)
What didn't make me smile...knowing I've spent most of my weekend getting stuff ready for work tomorrow :'(

Took the Jayco Eagle out of storage yesterday and opened it up for the first time in 2.5 years today. Happy to say it is as good inside as the last time we packed it up - i was a bit worried that it might have got a bit of mould but nope, still has that new camper smell.

Also worked out that I can just fit it, the ute and the missus' car on the street out the front of our house without encroaching on what my neighbour likes to think is a natural extension of his property.

So now saving myself $25/week and the camper is ready to take camping whenever the urge hits me.... win/win  ;D

Not sure I'm game enough to take it on the beach behind the Triton just yet, but would like to give it a go sometime.

Something us blokes aren't great at.

No, we're not :'(, but it's something you've got to do, & been there, done that & it helped immensely!

This sums up what the black dog does to you perfectly  :'(
X 100. Going through a little bout of something myself at the moment.  Undiagnosed, but I know something is not right. Getting the wife involved and getting it off my chest has helped.  Yesterday and today have not been great. Next step will be some professional help.  Something us blokes aren't great at.
Cheers,  Mike.

The market will dictate.
What was the asking price of top of the range KK? Prob similar.

I remember when I was looking at a new lifestyle soft floor 5 yrs ago, they wanted 25k for that. Be lucky to sell that second hand for 7k now, and would take six months to move it.

In 3 years time everyone will move back to swags and the hybrid market will be shot ;)

It's all about an individuals needs and wants. From what we have looked we needed a well built camper with a hard roof, shower, toot, good kitchen and storage. This is what we wanted. It needed to be strong, well built and capable of going off road. It needed to be light enough for 2.5 ATM and be able to fit in our garage of no more than 2.4m high. This eliminates a high proportion of trailers.

Could have gone a van (leave outside) but off-roaders start in the 50s (hybrids less) and these are made in China and assembled in Oz. There is risk associated with these units and I personally want to enjoy touring Oz with the limited leave I have each year rather than in a workshop attending to repairs, hence have bought an Aussie made trailer knowing full well it will serve us and built to Australian standards.

Those that believe these units are too expensive I do agree with, however only above the 70k range, ie AOR, CC etc

At the end of the day you get what you pay for, or just stick to your current 10 yr old CT.



Oh BTW sold the Modcon today 500 less than the advertised price, what a weekend!
