“Home is where the heart is”
and with this being the case our home is on the road. We continue to make our “home” as comfortable as possible.
Our 4WD is a 2011 Holden Colorado LXR, Automatic. We fitted it out with the following accessories and modifications:
Our Storage Rig:
One of the fantastic things about being married to a Boiler Maker is the custom-made storage system Shaun built for the back of our 4WD. The system is constructed out of aluminium sheet which was pressed and folded for extra strength while still remaining lightweight. The storage system consists of one large, utility drawer in the centre, two side storage compartments with hinged lids. These lower storage areas create a false floor on top of which a fridge slide carries our 40L Engel fridge and 40L of water plumbed to taps located on the front of the slide. Both the fridge slide and the drawer run on Find-it ball bearing slides rated at 250 kg each. To polish off the cosmetic appearance of the system the aluminium sheet has been finished with marine carpet.
Our OzTent RV-2:
Even though we are soon to be purchasing an off-road camper trailer we will still be carting our Oztent around the country. It is our simple answer to overnight, off the beaten track camping. It goes up in less than 30 seconds and fellow campers look on in awe. It’s sleek aluminium frame and rip-stop polycotton canvas makes for both easy set up and keeping you out of the elements.
Our Camper Trailer:
Our brand new camper was purchased at the 2012 Melbourne Camping Show in March. After much deliberation we finally decided on an MDC Off Road Camper manufactured in Brisbane, QLD. Our Camper is named Cooper after one of our favourite destination Cooper’s Creek. More details to follow with features and modifications.
