Hi there, I have been a lurking member for a long time and really enjoyed reading of the American members experiences. After contacting the Administrators with a query I was encouraged to participate in some of the forums even though I am an Aussie member. I figured the best place to start is in the Introduce Yourself forum so here goes! Now retired, in 1986 I emigrated to Australia from the UK where my wife and I had enjoyed camping under canvas with our two boys. Initially we camped in Australia with a trailer tent and enjoyed many interstate trips, as far north as tropical North Queensland and west into South Australia. It was not until 2014 that we bought our first Popup, a Jayco Dove. This was one of the smaller Australian Jaycos, but with 2 pull out beds it was ample for our needs. By this time we were no longer travelling with our lads and so the second bed became useful storage space. After 2 shakedown weekends away we set off on our longest single trip (11,000 kilometers / 6,800 miles) up through the centre of Australia and across to the East coast and back following the ocean to Melbourne. This took us 3 months.We covered a total of 20,000 kilometers with the Dove. Unsuccessful surgery on both my shoulders failed to overcome difficulties I had pulling out the beds and in 2018 we changed the Dove for a Jayco Penguin. This is pretty much the same size as the Dove but has a double bed which is a premanent fixture within the rigid body, i.e. it is no longer necessary to pull out the bed. This has made a huge difference, and our early concerns about the reduced storage room have been unfounded. To date we have covered 13,000 kms with the Penguin, much less than we would have liked due to the covid restrictions of the last 2 years. Throughout our camping life we have relied on the same tow vehicle, a trusty 2002 Aussie built Ford Falcon which has served us very well. I cannot imagine towing with anything else, and when this finally expires that will signify the end of our popup camping! I will attach a few photos of the Dove and the Penguin, knowing that the models will be unfamilar to the US based members, and hope they are of interest. Best wishes to everyone.
