Hi all,

I am thinking of attending the members gathering at Innamincka and I have a question about leaving my caravan.

I am looking at travelling up via Bourke and finding some ware to leave my caravan and then travel to Innamincka with my camping gear to attend the gathering.

What would be the best and safest place to drop my van for a few days, as after the gathering we intend to continue travelling.

I look forward to your replies.

We're towing our old Viscount (check rig photo) in to Innamincka for the gathering and don't expect any trouble. Might be a little more comfortable in the van on the cold nights out there, I would think.

Hi CC, I did not, but it has had an eye to eye left springs (look like LCs) with shocks, the chassis has been strengthen and the axle is two inch solid round and has electric brakes and 15 inch rims.
And inside the single beds changed to a east/west double and she is still under 1200kg ATM.
