Great to hear mate. We've just returned to Caravanland after enjoying our stint with our CUB. It's not a Jayco, or even an expanda-esque style van so not sure it really belongs on EDU... But it's an older 2010 van (Kingdom Memento), a few dings and bruises but allows us to be a little more comfortable in our adventures.

The Patrol loves it though, and my only regret with the Big Datsun so far is that I didn't own it when we went around the country. No disrespect to The Rock Truck, but this thing is next level.

Hope the fam are well. Need to get @17triton to organise another Beaufort get-together I reckon.

It would be good at Beaufort but most free weekends are spent in @Crusty181 s warehouse camping indoors lol gets a bit smokey in there when we fire up the 44 gallon drum with a bit of petrol we burn anything he doesn't need
