Kevin,
I am sorry to hear of your misfortune. We at Bushtracker wish you well in straightening it out... You have a very nice van there, a shame you have to sell it.

For anyone wanting a new van, this is about as new as you can get without having to wait to have one built. It is certainly worth the look to see if it suits you...

Good luck Kevin, and tell us if we can help you in the future in any way. My only advice, is take it to Perth or some major population center for an airport and such... Perth is bursting at the seam with the mineral boom, and you should have no trouble at all selling it there. Funny, even things like Fords seem to sell for more in Perth right now..

Best Regards and good luck... Ranger

I am back off Koolan Island now and am fast making plans to head back to Tassie.

There have been some interest in the van and I will say this upfront that the Van is worth every penny of the $86000 and I would rather work my guts out to keep the van if the price is not reached and tow it back to Tassie and fix the problems with the farm and later on when I am back to square one continue my trip, but this could take 2 years and it would be a shame to see the tracker not used for that time.
Thanks Ranger for your concern and I truely wish that I could just keep travelling, but things happen when you put trust into people to look after your assets (farm) so please genuinly interested people request information.

Thanks and to all the lucky ones happy travlin.

Cheers and have a good day
Kevin

Kevin,
That is a very nice van.... And I see that you have gotten a good answer on your tow vehicle... My only advice is that if you like the layout and size, don't hesitate..... You would be lucky to even GET a second hand Bushtracker !!! Many people call on Ads, the first day they come out, only to find it already gone. Two months ago, for the first time in 10 years, out of 3000+ vans in the Caravan Trader Website and magazine, there were no second hand Bushtrackers Nationwide!!

If you like it, don't hesitate, it is a nice van and well equipped, from concientious Owners... Regards, Ranger

Hi everyone

Just to keep you informed, I am back in tassie with the van had a very safe and enjoyable but fast trip from Broome to Tassie.

Back on the farm trying to get back in some sort of order, having fights with insurance, working off the farm to help pay the costs.

The van is stll for sale if anyone interested, and the only reason it is for sale is that we cant use it and get away for at least 2 years and it is a shame to see this beauty not being used.

Kind regards to everyone and safe travelling.

Kevin

Kevin,
Sorry to hear about your farm troubles as ex-farmers we know the issues surrounding employing people - bit like running an adult day care centre! The right people are hard to find and worth tenaciously hanging onto - and you don't often have that opportunity in the farming game.

I hope you get it sorted and can continue your draem in a couple of years time

Best wishes

John and Jean.
