Jay,

We'll be going the other way around the same time, so will keep an eye out....for a BT or a Boroma???

Cheers,
Matt

Ha Ha

We will be making our last trip with our BT Land Yacht. You can rest assured that we will do it again in our Boroma with its off-road package. As I have said many time: they are both great vans. We are simply changing our lifestyle a bit!

I think he just wants more room in the next one. Some scale down as they get older, but many van owners scale up for more comforts.

Well, it certainly wasn't weight! When you have a 21' BT with a TARE of 2900, and the expected TARE of our 25' Boroma is assumed to be 3300 what more can I say?

A square rear rather than loosing the space to the skid plate, a separate shower as part of the ensuite, an inverter type reverse air conditioner that quietly provides cooling and heating, larger overhead cabinets, and a new layout.

Brian, only time will tell whether older is wiser!

Cheers, Jay

No, Jay, you can't fool me. Jac just wanted a change of internal colour scheme and move the furniture around and Jay wouldn't do it, isn't that right Jac LOL?

Hi Jay and Jackie,

we have a 7.3m motorhome on order. After you viewed our two Boromas in 2004 and 2006, you couldn't resist the temptation and you had to order one! Will this mean in a few years time, you will cross the ditch, look over the Hendo motorhome and upgrade from the 25ft Boroma ! LOL

I wish you well with the Boroma they look a great van, we looked at them before we bought our's, and have been looking at them again but for New Zealand, so that we have a van in Aussie and one in New Zealand instead of shipping each year, not that we would go as large as you our have thougts would be to keep it around the size of our van now 21, but it would be a lot lighter as most of our stays in NZ are now in CP.
Boroma are just down the road from Sanctuary Cove so when we are home we always pop in to keep up to date with what they are doing.
Have a good trip we also will be going the other way to you, off to chase the bone fish in the West.
