Our new home

Well we have ordered our new home.
An Aussie Wide 20ft.

We have taken a few shots of a similar van that was being built at the time we were at the factory to give you an idea of what we are getting.

The company web site doesn’t have the “Destination” model yet.

There was a couple of changes we have asked for which is one of the benefits of getting a new van.

We are getting a full oven so had to move the microwave over the fridge. The fridge will be smaller but a lot bigger than we have now. The stove top will be the extended bench not the glass top.

Adding a few more power points as well as the 12v adapter plugs for the laptops.

The table folds out to give heaps of room to work

The colours will be similar – just a few changes to the walls and cupboards.

I get my queen size bed and washing machine.

Chris gets his tunnel boot, as well as the front boot and a grill on the chassis for the hoses etc.

There is also a cupboard for the generator with slide out rails so that it’s all locked away.

We’ve also included 2 Solar Panels/Inverter, satelite TV, Gas/Elec hot water, extra solar batteries, reverse cycle air conditioning and we are still contemplating adding a deisal heater which many travellers swear by.

We’ll add a Reese hitch to the car for better towing as well.

Windows are all tinted with insect screens.

There is water filtration (we will add some extras to this), and  2 large water tanks.

Delivery will be in 4 – 5 weeks which is much earlier than we thought so we’ll now pull out all stops to have the uni job finished well before then.
