Good morning all.
Well after using the mighty Trak Shak for the past 8 years to,explore some of this great country and, at times struggled with 1/2 an acre of wet canvas, earlier this week I finalised payment for a 2011 built AOR Quantum super camper. As you will note, it is 4 years old and has done some 35k all,over Australia but is in "as new" condition thanks to the previous owners and the service department at AOR,at Caloundra. Quite a few options to make life more comfortable with hot,water at the press of a button, diesel,heating when it is a bit chilly and reverse cycle air con if the weather should be a bit warm. Had it checked at the factory yesterday and was told,that it,is in perfect health with all factory upgrades done at the last full service.
Taking a few days to get home via Nanango (my brother lives here) and then catching up with friends at Inglewood on Monday next week before home on Tuesday.
Hope to use it as I have joined the ranks of the grey nomads a bit over a week ago. See you on the tracks

Cheers

Well done John
We had a Quantum that was fantastic, 2 years ago we decided to upgrade to a "Off Road Lotus Trooper"(a bit more space and comfort). Big mistake!! Although the trooper chassi and suspension built like the proverbial brick dunny, the top is the same as a on Road van. Our fist trip it leaked dust badly after covering up all likely entry points, on returning I spent many hours sealing every likely spot, helped a bit.
The good news we were able to sell and now own a AOR Matrix (s/h but as new). Very happy??
Cheers

Hey John


Some of us would reckon the mighty Trak Shak is Glamping - lol.
Enjoy you newly found luxury.
There is a lot of difference between
‘Human Being’ and ‘Being Human’.

Had a Trak Shak for 12 years. Only 'got rid of it' when the kids left home.

Might be half an acre of canvas but very quick set up/pack downs for overnights stops.

Hi Derek
Mate whilst the TS was quick to setup for the overnight stop, while you are still undoing clips to open the suitcase, I'll have the Quantum open, the kitchen out with the kettle on for a cuppa and enjoying a quiet drinkers.

We've still got a TS. If you feel the need to reminisce I'll be only too happy to swap for a weekend or three. We are starting to look at hybrids ourselves but might be a couple of years off yet.

P.S. ours is a '96 model with 'flash' upgrades like running water. It's been around the country 3 times and carried the tinny up the cape more times than that so it smells like a real one too - convinced?

Lucky you John and well done. We have had many very happy Quantum owners here, it seems all the AOR products are very well made and have not heard a bad word about them.........Maybe the price of them! But still if they last and have good resale value you can't go wrong! Cheers Toni
