GAS APPLIANCES AND THE LAW

When buying RV's or any type of gas appliance please be aware of the following Gas appliance requirement.

All gas appliances offered for sale in Australia must be:

• approved by a government recognised certifier and
• marked with an Australian recognised certification label.

When buying a gas appliance, ensure you ask the sales person to show you the approval label - see below for examples.
WHAT TO AVOID.

Gas appliances for sale without an attached recognised approval label could be considered unsafe and illegal and would render your insurance invalid. For your safety do not buy an unlabelled appliance.
Buyers should also be aware that overseas approvals of gas equipment are not recognised in Australia and should not be sold or purchased under any circumstances.
We have invested a significant amount to ensure our campers meet all Australian gas standards in all states and territories. All appliances in our campers have been laboratory tested and certified through GLOBAL-MARK above. Each appliance has a GLOBAL-MARK label/sticker attached which includes our compliance number. The certification belongs to our company and cannot legally be used by other importers.   In addition to this all our campers are sold with a gas compliance certificate after being fully tested by a licensed gas fitter.

MEN'S SHED

Our campers arrive on giant pallets which we cut up and give to the local wood workers club to make kiddies toys etc. As a thank you they made us a truck and camper from one of the pallets. We are all very impressed with it. We’ve now got it on display in our showroom.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR CUSTOMERS,  SHIFTY AND DEB SHELDON 

Queenslanders, Ian and Deb, have converted their new Isuzu NPS 300 4x4 into a much loved motorhome. According to Shifty, the pair chose the 4x4 truck so they could explore areas that regular caravans cannot. "We purchased the Isuzu NPS 300 4x4 for the reliability, knowing we can go off-road and return safe and sound. Only Isuzu is good for that," Shifty said.

"The slide-on body is a Palomino Camper from Palomino RV Australia and we installed ALI fuel and water tanks under the camper, which were built by Ley's Fabrication Aluminium in Queensland."

BRAND NEW ICE FISHING CAMPER - RELEASED ONLY IN USA/CANADA

 

We recently had a customer from Gladstone who wanted to trade in his well version 1968 Linda star slide on camper (or ET as we called it) which was actually manufactured just down the road in Caboolture. We wouldn't normally take a part exchange but in this instance we saw  an opportunity to purchase and donate to the local Hervey Bay historical society for restoration and the opportunity for visitors to the museum to appreciate camping in a bygone era. Here is an interesting link to information on these amazing looking campers Linda Star Campers
