Good luck getting a spot.


Spirit of Tasmania ferry passengers will be able to bring their car or motorcycle at no charge for a period of four months under an expansion of the Bass Strait Passenger Vehicle Equalisation Scheme to be announced today.

If you can get a booking, the price of adding a caravan might be a shock ??

Repco today ONLY

(Last day... only became aware of this deal late last night)

Ark XO 750 jockey wheel
https://www.arkcorp.com.au/product/xo750-jockey-wheel-copy/

40% off

No... I’m not drunk

$310 listed on their website. No mention of a discount. (but "a guy" on a Facebook group I'm a member of was adamant that it was legit)

Phoned up my local branch and was told “yep, that’s part of the sale”

Just walked out with one and paid only $186

Don’t look online, just phone your local store(s) and ask

This is the most useless thing you could buy if you want to use it as a shade.
The moment there is a hint of wind the suction caps blow off leaving you sun exposed. Not worth the money
