Setup & Gear

We have always loved camping with many weekends spent away in tents with sleeping bags but, in 2014 Cameron's brother-in-law invited him along to a Boys 4x4 weekend to Mount Walker, NSW. Despite one of the boys blowing his front tail shaft, rear tail shaft and rear diff resulting in 19hour recovery / tow back to town, Cam had a great time and within two weeks had bought his own 4WD.

 

We started simple yet practical and within a tight budget but over the years our setup has had some massive changes as we worked hard to become more self-sufficient, added with some luxuries, especially once adventuring became our lifestyle.

Check out our setups from start to now below and we are always looking for ways to improve our home on wheels, if you have any suggestions. 

No Kids

4WD & Swag

Before kids we had the very simple setup of an 80series Landcruiser and a double swag.

We always had it packed & ready to go and it was surprisingly comfortable. 

One Kid

4WD & Camper Trailer

Absolutely you can travel with kids in a swag / tent setup but we decided to gift ourselves a new 2017 Ford Ranger & Black Series Dominator Camper Trailer for Christmas, just before we had Keira.

Three Kids

4WD & Caravan

We were very comfortable in our camper trailer but with twins on the way & our dream of travelling Australia full-time becoming more of a reality we decided to upgrade to a 2017 Jayco Basestation.
