windsor reborn

After a couple of false starts earlier this year — thanks to the wet weather we had been experiencing and the start of the show season — I finally found myself at the headquarters of Windsor Caravans at Northgate in Brisbane. Thankfully, on what could only be described as a glorious summer’s day, the weather wasn’t going to be a problem, so we hitched the Windsor Genesis 196MD up behind the D-Max, checked the tail-lights and safety chains and pulled out into morning rush hour traffic. TOW TIME Thanks to the relatively low tare of 2031kg, with little fuss we were soon merging onto the M1 at Nudgee and making our way north to the idyllic surrounds of Bribie Island for our day of testing.

Us South Aussies can still hang our four-wheel drive’s diffs up, if we so desire; it’s just less likely down here as we’re better at picking lines. I’m an absolute sucker for the pine-scented air and crackle of dried needles underfoot at Mount Crawford. Breathing here is like performing a prohibited yoga move conducive to ultimate wellbeing. I’m sure we could all do with a dose of air like this right now, but…
