Caravan Car Pic

The Dodge Caravan is a family minivan manufactured by Chrysler Group LLC and sold under its Dodge brand. Along with its nameplate variant, the Plymouth Voyager, the Caravan was introduced for the 1984 model year. In 1987, the Dodge Grand Caravan long-wheelbase (LWB) model was introduced and sold alongside the short-wheelbase (SWB) Caravan. The SWB model was discontinued after the 2007 model year; and, since the 2008 model year, the van has been sold only under the Grand Caravan nameplate.

Farmboy and I are off to the Caravan and Camping Show today. We have a few things on our agenda including:
* Talking to some tourism people about the best and worst places for crossing the Great Dividing Range with a caravan.
* Collecting some tourism information for the places we’d like to go (and hopefully talking to someone who can help us work out the best place to see the Great Barrier Reef).
* Catching up with the salesman who sold us our caravan and getting some more of his business cards (we’re getting good at handing them out).
* Watching a Dreampot demonstration (I bought mine at the caravan and camping show last year and would like to watch them again now that I’ve had a bit of a play with it - there’s so much that it can be used for).
* Looking for a few bits and pieces for the van in readiness for our trip.
* Having fun looking through the various vans and dreaming of what we might buy next. We’d like to buy a 5th-Wheeler when our kids are grown - you can get REALLY flash ones!!! Not that we’d go flash but they’re fun to look at. For those not familiar with them, they attach to the tray of a ute. It’s a good way to tow a big van, especially if you prefer to have a separate vehicle when stopped.
It should be lots of fun to spend the day together this way. It’s our “early anniversary present” to each other.
Speaking of holidaying, if you haven’t entered the Way2Go competition yet, there’s still time. In case you missed it, here is a repeat of the details as originally outlined in this post:

You can find my first article “A Dream Is Born” on the website which details a little of our background story to the Big Trip we’re taking this year.

This Techart Tuned Cayenne Turbo CT running with 500BHP+ was able to pull this rather shapely caravan along at 230 kph? is this a record? Does anyone read FASTCARAVAN ?
