Hi there Mamag49, I think essentially, we are all RV'ers. From what I have seen travelling in Canada, most RV'ing activity is done with fully self contained Winnebago style vehicles, or the massive 5th Wheelers that hook onto the back tray of a large SUV. In Australia, as in the UK, the main form of RV'ing is the "Caravan" which is pretty much like the 5th Wheeler unit, but is towed around connected to the towbar of a car or 4WD vehicle. Winnebagos and 5th Wheelers are growing in popularity in Australia, but are still in the minority.
What can you tell us about the small by American standards but, huge to me - I used to own a slide in Truck Camper for the pickup truck.
I think they were motorhomes well (more like an 18foot long camper with a Fiat or Citroen Diesel engine that get around 70 mpg with a manual transmission. Any chance you have them in OZ - I'm drawing a total blank on name - well, maybe Roma-something or other.
They kinda reminded me of what were sold over here by TOyota back in the 70's - with a samll truck body and a fiberglass attached Chinook pop-up camper. I know I've seen such a creature in Florida it was imported from the UK and actually was roomy with a small cassette type toilet.
ANy idea what they're really called. And have you seen these beastie's - either at your dealership or in travels. They actually looked like fairly sweet looking rigs. Major reason for my asking would be the mileage, and I love a diesel - Have two greasers (used McD frying grease - converted to BioDiesel) - car and truck. - plus I'm frugal. Like the idea of a smallish vehicle for my type of camping far removed from the avg. camper.
