With Noodle getting her new caravan recently- I thought it'd be great to see who else has a caravan, is awaiting a caravan or is dreaming of a caravan- so lets hear it!
I'm due to take delivery of my first home away from home in 14 weeks. I've never owned a caravan, camper trailer or even a tent before! I'm a single women with one DS and we haven't had a real holiday in over 2 years! We're so pumped.
We're planning a few short trips with the prospect of some longer ones down the track.
I've bought a whole stack of stuff for the caravan, including towels, dinnerware, cutlery, bbq tools etc etc

It appears those that do have caravans are out enjoying being able to use them. I'm only jealous this much *holds arms out as wide as they can go*.
That's ok, I don't mind talking to myself- I do it quite regulary actually so typing to myself should be no different.
So, I got my dinnerware. Corelle plain white, I then painted it with inspirational words- now I just need to seal it so we're not eating paint while eating our BBQ steak and salad.
I also got my ok for my holidays. 2 weeks in October and 3months in February 2014- don't get too excited), so that's great news.
Other than that, not much else. Still trying to squirrel money away whereever possible- unfortunately there seems to be a leak in my account but we're getting there.

Re: Caravan Owners
The family has had it for ages-it was mum and dads but they converted a bus and gave the camper trailer to us.
No recent trips I'm afraid as I bought a new car and forgot to get the tow bar :screwy:

I have achieved 50% of my saving goal
And yesterday, I bought the Camps 7 Australia Wide book. Great book- I can't wait to sit down with it and plan out of holiday a bit more. I also think I'm going to get the Caravans Australia Wide book as well- this will help when there are no low cost/free camps in range to search for a caravan park.

We have settled on getting a camper trailer after trying wind ups, caravans and tenting. I am getting a camper trailer with electric brakes and a booster fitted to the 4wd as it makes it so much safer especially when you consider the loaded up weight of the van.

Yes, the caravan has electric brakes and have had the electric brake system fitted to the car (which has been upgraded to an Xtrail- LOVE IT! )
BUT! So annoying! Got a quote a few weeks ago for caravan insurance. As I am picking it up tomorrow, I go to pay the commence the policy and begin the insurance. WELL! We are in a listed postcode for new policy embargos due to the bushfires so I can't insure it until that is lifted! ARGH!
