Finally after having my campervan on the market for months I have a series buyer taking the train to Kalgoorlie from perth. I tried advertising in the Kalgoorlie miner, Sunday times, Quokka, Autotrader. The Idea was to get a few people interested and take it to Perth. But I got few calls and none sounded series or were bargain hunting (wanting something with under 100,000k and showroom condition for around 10k) So after buying the old girl for10k 5 years ago and 65k and after spending a fortune fixing things (new head,sideplate,master cylinder,freewheeling hubs,front and rear axle seals,brakes,tyres,shockersetc etc) hopefully I will be parting with her for 7k tomorrow arvo. My advice to anyone after a 4wd camper is to offer 1/2 what they are asking as they are hard to sell both for them and you

Hi Davoe,
Having a look at the page stats, it is so weird that this post has had to date 276 views, most other posts have had <50, hmmmmmm looks like everyone thinks you are giving something away.....based on the post title :)

I have found car buyers in general run when you tell them how many kms it has done. Really, if they have found a car more than a few years old, and it is showing less than an average of 20,000 km per year(40,000 km per year for a country car) - they should "smell a rat". Are they serious that they believe that the 10 year old car they looked at with 50,000 km on the clock is genuine? Hope the sale goes to plan Davoe - trouble is when you hold out for fair value, the vehicle just gets another year older and drops further in value. Motherhen

Ya could be right there. I'm sure I've called something along those lines by other EO's that I have upset.

Anyway I’m off on Saturday for a couple of weeks. The first week is to Mt Manning and then back to the Die Hardy’s – Faye Bluff. And then meeting up with a mate on the Thursday and heading east along the Diemals road and turning off to go to Galah Rock and Curragong Gorge areas. And I bloody looking forward to it. If I don’t see ya out that way then enjoy.

Gear's already packed, I havn't unloaded the roof rack since last weekend cos I'm going away this weekend too!!
We have my brother's Bucks night on Saturday and we figured what better way than to go camping in the thundery showers! ;-)
But don't worry all you noise natzies we won't be disturbing anyone, I've got the perfect spot amongst the Jarrah trees miles from anywhere!
The bleep will be flowing and yes the dredded car strereo will be playing.
But we will leave the place clean and if anyone rocks up near us I'll give them a fore warning that the drop bears will be out in force because of the stormy conditions. Lol.

Actually managed to get someone to go the vegemite behind the ears on the weekend (world famous dropbrear repellant). Gotta love creaking trees.

Where are you heading to davoe?

Hey Ben

Speaking on behalf of all us 14 year old female greenies on this site - I must warn you thast vegemite is not the natural food of drop bears and you risk giving them myxomatosis by exposing them to the smell even of vegemite!

Naughty!

Davoe (WA), In the c/van pk here My 1991 80 series with 225kms on clock has developed a power stearing leak, & so has another one Same year but with 445kms. It nothing to do with the c/van pk I might add but just the age of the seals not usage. Both 4WDs could be in same condition. but folks just look at Stats.
I'd say 20,000+ kms per year is normal X 10 years all adds up.
