a new convert
« on: June 15, 2012, 08:54:48 PM »
Hi all,
  My name is juzzy and I am new to campers.  My family and I ( wife and 3 youngins) love camping and we have decided to finally bite the bullet and get a camper trailer.  Hoping to gain some knowledge and a few laughs on here.

Thanks bud, and trust me you will either laugh or cry with some of the stuff we get up to....

We will be getting a VERY basic trailer package and modifying it as we go along, tow rig is a wj jeep grand cherokee that serves dual duties as the main family car so other than a small lift and bullbar/winch it isnt going to get modified.

Is there many members from central west NSW?

haven't decided yet mate, it will be a case of what is around when i have enough cash in the pocket.   I am a plant mechanic ( work on forklifts and sheepskin processing machinery) so grand plan is to modify the trailer as we get used to it.

Cool, plenty of good advise on the forum when you do decide.
Any camper trailer is a good starting point and you will never look back

Welcome to the show Juzzy,  Coming from a cold part of the country, you would have to have a good sense of humour.

I grew up down hastings way in Vic, we moved here 2 years ago to take the new job and to get the kids out of the burbs.  I dont mind the cold so much but the mrs hates it! lol.  It makes for some interesting times though thats for sure.

G'day & Welcome Juzzy.

There are plenty of members out your way. We had a small get together just last weekend at Coolongooba camp ground, near Glen Davis. Don't be afraid to put your hand up to organise a camp if you're keen.
