Try Wayne and Lola Bayley on
08 93432477
or 0417174104.
Their BT is a 20ft. Great van.
They live in the northern surburbs of Perth I think.
Don't think they read the BOG often and may be prepared to show you round.

Hi Rob & June,

You are most welcome to have a look thru our 18' BT with east-west bed; café dinette; divided kitchen (rear sink-side stove) layout; ensuite; 3 solar panels & batteries; inverter; etc. It's all SOOOOOOO comfortable !

Ours is a 2002 build and we know Steve Gibbs loves to show off the latest and greatest at the Works in Qld (and rightly so) but when you look at the real rugged construction which gets you around the NorthWest in comfort not a great deal has changed since 2002 - the BT does not need to be improved in those key areas! Some of the purchased-in items such as stoves and fridges have been improved since 2002 but not the real items like chassis, suspension, etc but you can get the feel of the build quality by looking at our BT which is 5,000km closer.
(However I am sure Steve G. will 'require' you to visit the Works to place an order for a new van.)

We back onto the Old Coast Road at Bouvard about 80km north of Bunbury. Phone us on 9582 1950.

Cheers from Martin & Christine Bunny.

Very kind words, Thank You...

But as to me "requiring" a visit here and interesting thing has happened of late... Based on our Reputation, we used to get an Order now and then, sort of several times a year up to a half dozen, where they would never even come here until they picked up their van. Well of late, I have been trying to help people even more, and it seems to be appreciated, and I have three this week going to Order, based on my care over the Internet and our Reputation. It may be something that happens more and more. Doing the right thing by people continues to be paying off. Regards, and Thanks, Ranger..

Hi Rob and June

Quite a collection over here now. Did you read FTP Tracker's post? They are travelling in the South West, and left us on Monday to head to Augusta Margaret River area - ring them quick in case they're passing through Busselton now.

You are welcome to come and look at ours (weekends best) - not a fancy and filled with 'toys' as the modern ones, but we have a 1998 18 footer. Ours is 'backwards' to most people's, bed across the back over the cutaway and cargo area, with kitchen and bathroom at the front. Heaps of room and storage space.

We are in Bridgetown area

Hi Rob & June,

Can recommend looking at a few BT's before you go to the factory, sorry ours is not ready until the end of March next year.

Before I went to the factory I took theoffer and hospitality of looking through Martin & Christine Bunny's, Roger & Jackie Bunny's ( these Wabbit are everywhere) and Grumblebum & Dragons BT's in and around Perth and they were most helpful and informative. I also viewed Dave & Liz's 22' who were cruising WA from Qld and the information I gained was extremely helpfull in my decision and design.

I would like to thank the above Boggers for allowing us to look through their BT's and you will not be disappointed if you contact these owners.

Hi Rob and June,

So you dont mind travelling!... How about a quick 1150km sprint to Lorna Glen Station (155 k NE of Wiluna) to see our 19' Bt in its natural habitat - out bush and doing it easy.

Many thanks to everyone who took the trouble to reply to our query regarding BTs. We are overwhelmed with the response. A big thank you to the wonderful people who have kindly shown us there pride and joy and those still yet to see. We are most impressed with the knowledge and enthusiasm of you all. So it now looks like a trip to Qld.
We hope to catch up with you on the open road soon.
Cheers, Rod & June.
