    I would put in a good word for a Renault Master van*.

    I recently came back from camping at Bathurst for the fifth time.

    Roomy, 110km speed a breeze. Towed an 8 x 5 caged trailer with lots of gear, two fuel stops. Dual air con, nice.

    The auto is magic if running right, expensive if not.

    * Mine is a 12 seater bus, based on the original van, intended for camper conversion when I get too old to party on the mountain.

    Did I do anything last night that suggested I was sane?

    Nah, I put the bus away once we got the camp set up and just caught the commuter bus to the top of the mountain.

    Best effort last year was when a couple of the guys went down from the top of the mountain on kids scooters ..... you get up to speed on the back straight .... They survived but it could have gone wrong in so many ways.

    I had a rental VF SS-V Redline from Melbourne to Canberra - I wasnt just surprised, I was giggling like an idiot the whole way. Used a LOT of fuel...

    Hi
    Today I spoke to a Telco technician working "at pit" He was driving a short low Traffic with a modest load too I would estimate. He was very happy with it, no problems, had it a year. Nothing had gone wrong. Went OK with good economy. Worst problem was the silly mag wheels which were badly marked with gutter rash. Would be happy with steel wheels And he did not like the stop start either, too hard to turn it off also.
