Looks like we will be taking the mighty tough country camper on the trip due to being unable to obtain finance to purchase anything. The joys of living remote as finance companies don't like to lend to people who live remote.

No issues as the camper will be getting some major upgrades over the coming year.

New large toolbox

Slide out kitchen

Finally fix the wiring set up

We looked at all styles from hybrids to off road vans. We did not mind the zone rv vans but decided to look at a jayco and then decided that its hard to buy one without the right amount of money. Both vans have metal frames.

I have to thank you because Greg & I FINALLY just completed your itinerary for the Cape York 2011 trip we were going to go on with you and it was UNREAL!  Our home made camper performed brilliantly as did the Triton that is now six years older than when we were going to accompany you.  People, places and weather were fantastic and we stayed in most of the places you mentioned.  CANNOT WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR.

Hi fellow Kimberley travellers.... Just run in our 2nd BRS Offroad Hybrid Van. We upgraded to the premium model which we will be taking to on the Kimberley trip. Just completed a 12k km shake down from Hobart to the Tip in Cape York. What an absolute awesome adventure and has wet our appetite for more... Bring on the Kimberley's!
