SarahEC says: What sort of caravan do you have, Didi? Now and again I think this would be a brilliant way of seeing Australia but I'm not too keen on roughing it!
We only have a 15 ft caravan, double bed, fridge, gas full gas stove. When we stay at free places we have a battery in the caravan that run the lights, will last for 5 days before recharging, for cooking, gas, We have a pop up ensuite ($60) which we put our port- a -loo in. a couple of solo shower bags ($6each)which we heat the water. We are buying a 12 volt fridge and genarator for our future trips, so we dont have to stay in caravan parks so much.
If you can afford it, lots of vans come with these things, in the caravan.
Our first trip away we stayed in caravan parks all the time, so expensive. but was good. but meet a lot of people that free camp so the next trip got the camps book, for the free camp,
had a great time, met so many wonderfull people, only went to caravan parks when we had to.
I would recomened that you do it, its so stress free, i cant wait for Barry and i to be off again. We meet a lot of people that were like u, now can't keep them home. I could bore you for hours talking abou it.
Life is to short, so if you can do what you want, don't wait, Didi Reply
