Hi Willie

BTi did make a few pop tops in the early days - in Post # 3165 Steve explains. This one must pre date my 1998 one; not only does it have the steel base like mine, but the logo on the front looks quite different (or maybe someone has re-painted it). Other than that it does look like a genuine BT, but i suspect very old. I note the advertiser doesn't say what year - a telling omission.

Hi there Mrs Hen ,

Thanks for that info . I was really surprised to see a pop top . If it had been a 14 fixed roof , I would have bought it straight away . That damn AL in WA got a 14' beauty and he is not letting me forget it . Curses .

Where are you now ?

Willie .

Rooster agrees - but with our luck, we wouldn't find any gold.

G'day Willie,

A full sized van would be better for a gentleman like yourself! After all we need to take with us the comforts of home and the obligitory equipment for pastimes such as detectors and associated parafenalia, fishing gear, communications and the list goes on. Surely you can't fit all that in a 14 footer?

Kind regards

Theo

Theo ,

Actually Theo , even though I am the perfect gentleman as described , I find myself going away with a near empty car . Everything seems to be in the van .

I think the only thing I might miss in the 14 ' would be the shower and a full height fridge / freezer ( Al - does yours have a little wee fridge or a decent one ? )

Geez I'm strugling with a 19 footer and with a shakedown trip to Peak Hill this coming week things are getting desperate! I mean the capuccino machine will have to sit on the floor or stay home (what a horrible thought!). I have grown accustomed to my frothy coffee in the morning and I don't really want to give that away just because we are now travelling in a caravan.

I know there are other that advocate spartan living when travelling and in fact they are looking for an excuse to leave modern living behind. This would off course be much easier if the bride was not coming but she is keen as mustard and I have to solve the packing problem. She asked me where on earth she would pack the iron - why would she need one of those? It is not a fashion parade surely!

Kind regards

Theo

Theo,
We spent 7 months in the van a few years ago. When we got home I found that I had packed an iron.Guess I didn't need it. But just in case you cross paths with the GG then it might be wise to find a spot. Each time we go away I make it a policy not to use it.Works well!

Regards
Dianne
