Thanks mate, coundn't agree more, these are bomb proof. But this falls into the category of "Need" and not "Want" to sell it unfortunately  !!  We'll be sad to see her go after all these years but it's for a greater good ::)

None just yet mate, ...................we're trying to run two houses at the moment ( looking forward to retirement ) and the house at Burrum Heads needs a new roof ( insert lots of money here  ::)  ), so we need to redistribute our wealth to make that happen.
Trying to be brave and not cry......lol  :'( :'( :'( :'( , but it'll all be worth it in the end, all I know is that someone will be buying a much loved camper !!!

Talk soon mate  :cheers:

Why is this still available?

I've seen this camper. It's a beautiful example of a very impressive design.

"First to see will buy" hasn't been used here, but it has never been more appropriate.

Bloody hell, this thing still hasn't sold.....To those that are looking at this camper, while it may be 14 years old, it will still do any trip, road or half baked track in this country, these were designed and built by Ahern Metal in cairns for the electricity board in the far north for their guys to drag up through the cape, so they were built tough, as for parts, the shocks, coil springs and swing arm bushes were Pedders, the swing arms were built in house but will never break (and if you do you have other issues that are far more serious), bearings and brakes (12" marinized) were Vehicle Components, and parts can still be bought through them (I think I still have parts from our old 2004 deluxe explorer in the shed)....Oh and I have no affiliation with JK or cape york campers, just a former owner of one who was very happy with it and a wee bit dumbfounded as to why this camper is still for sale.....Hope it sells soon JK.

Thanks for the kind words mate, yep.......it's one of the best on the maket !!!!!
Times are a bit tough so I guess we'll just sit back and see what happens ( not breaking my neck to sell it, but kind of need the coin for another project ).

Cheers
