Newbie Thanks for adding me.

Hello All 

My other half is already retired. I have 8 weeks to go but whos counting? 
we have been doing some research re travel around our beautiful country. This has led us to two caravan and camping shows to date. 
we are researching vans and cars to tow them. After a short trip to Kakadu this year (accommodation Style holiday) we are interested in exploring off the beaten track so we are looking at off road vans: working out what questions to ask and what is necessary. We only want a 15-16ft van for easier towing and less ball weight. A Toyota Landcruiser looks like the car of choice atm. 

We wont be buying until later 2020 so Lots of research time ahead. we are looking forward to learning lots from seasoned travellers and meeting people on the road. Thanks for having us.
