Hi folks,
a year+ in traveling ‘around-the-block’ and now it’s time to return to NZ. Unfortunately most roads in NZ are only fit for sheep or Jaycos so it’s with great regret that we are letting go of the BT. A big thank you to both the public and BT owners forums where we researched our dream journey requirements. Also, a big thanks to attendees at the 2005 Copeton rally and all those BT owners we have met on the road for their friendship, help and advice on all things BT and traveling around Oz in general. BT owners are certainly a loyal and passionate group.

That sounds cheap, judging from the prices people have been getting... Some have gotten upwards of $80k and more... Don't know if it will sell just off the BOG, but an adv in "Caravan Trader" usually does the trick. The problem in the timing for the magazine... On the wrong timing it can take a up to two months to get the adv out. On one of our vans it sold to the first Caller of about 50 on the first day or so the advertisement came out.

Cheers, Ranger

If anyone wants a good buy, this van is Booked in to be here at Bushtracker on Wednesday to have a damaged solar panel fitted per insurance ... I will look it over for you if you like.

Look, at $68,000, my Office Manager Matthew comments to me this morning was along the line of "We should buy it, we could resell it for a profit.."... Too which I said: " Yea right, well will store it on the lot we just bought, where is that now? We also cannot be seen to taking advantage or gouging people by buying the good deals and reselling ourselves"... .... ..... But it is tempting.

If you are reading this, any where close in NSW or QLD, pack a lunch and get going tomorrow. It will be here Wednesday. You could do a lot worse, I can assure you..

Mind you it is not my cup of tea,
I would rather new and on Warranty...
But if you are going to by second hand,
This is a good value.

Regards from the Lone Ranger, tryin to look after everyone...

Hi Richard & Wendy.
Well I guess you won't be at Copeton now. Happy travelling where-ever.
We really enjoyed your little stop overs - Tassie & Anakie, & will miss seeing you about - untill we get over to NZ in a couple of years, anyway.
Keep us posted, on your whereabouts.
Regards Peter & Jennifer.
Regards Peter.
