Another Coaster Out On The Road

We picked up the coaster about 3 weeks ago and have had it serviced and Safety Checked with some repairs done with some more to do next Service.

We took the Coaster out for a couple of nights at Easter down to the Mole Creek Caravan Park in northern Tassie. It's about an hours driving to the caravan park. We thought we would try a powered site to start with and the Coaster with all its built-in equipment performed beautifully.

It's an old vehicle, 29 years old but it has had some TLC through its life. It's only done 43,000kms as Motor Home and previous to that it did 130,000kms as bus.

On the road it runs very well, lugs a bit on the hills although there are not many hills to that Caravan Park. 

The Coaster Bus turns into a large sailing vessel in the strong winds we noticed coming back home today.

The Coaster is all cleaned up and ready to take away as soon as we can get a break from work again maybe around Anzac Day.


Throttle manipulation is a dying art.

Good buy . Age of vehicle has little to do with enjoying this lifestyle. Keep maintenance up they last for years . Youâll have more fun in that than a new one . Suttle changes to your needs too . Enjoy .

Appears to have been cared for. You will get many years of nice times in it. Rod.

I was always taught to respect my elders,

but it keeps getting harder to find one.
