Winter Woollies Time

Weather-wise the last few months have been lovely in Pukekohe, nowhere near as cold as we are used to in the Wairarapa. It is almost fun to watch the weather and see a 10–12 degree difference in the overnight temperatures between here and there. We have been doing quite a bit of travelling recently, with [...]

This package really is quite intriguing; built in the USA by Airstream and shipped to Jayco in Australia for some extras to be fitted for the Aussie market, this North American brand is iconic for its aeronautical look with a retro pop-riveted aluminium exterior.

A recent stop off at RnRV in Silverdale to see the latest Carthago motorhome really got us going. It’s not often we step into a motorhome these days and see something that is new with regard to layout design and one that rings our bells as much as this model did. Paul and Rochelle were [...]
