Charlie,
You will achieve better responses if you give the weight you can tow, and a price range.
I wouldn't leave home without my diesel heater.

good luck

We have a smaller version the Parkes 13. They are great value for money. Good luck in your search and happy eventual travels!

How offroad?
Dirt roads or 4wd tracks?

thanks guys got a 200 cruiser looking at upgrading towing capacity currently getting quotes.
ideally we want a self sufficient van that would go off road looking at the lotus or something like that
we ideally want to do tracks like gibb river and head up tip of aus like gove the cape etc..

The Gibb is a surfaced, corrugated and sometimes graded road.

Offroad in vans and camper trailers is a marketing term. Some so named fall to bits on roads like the Gibb.

You have to do a deep dive into trailer construction rather than relying on marketing bumpf.

Hi charliethewonderdog,

If you can pick up a second hand Kedron or Bushtracker, I don’t think you would be disappointed. Check out Caravansales on line.

Hi Charlie,
Whatever you get, make sure it is dust proof and water proof. Have a warm doona or two for chilly western nights, decent wet weather gear, a stove for outside cooking, and lots of patience. And some skin moisturiser.
You’ll have a ball !!

Cheers
Jim
