keeping fred's vision alive

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are three times more likely to be blind than other Australians. Most of this vision loss is preventable or treatable, but a third of Indigenous Australian adults have never had an eye exam. Inspired by the work of the late Professor Fred Hollows, the internationally renowned eye surgeon and humanitarian, The Fred Hollows Foundation works tirelessly with their partners across Australia to ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples can always exercise their right to sight, good health, and self-determination. Fred knew that the only way to deliver eye health services in Aboriginal communities was to have community members at the heart of that work. Equally, The Foundation knows that to close the gap in eye health and achieve lasting change, Aboriginal and Torres Strait…

american overland touring on show

Every year, in November, the flagship SEMA show takes place in Las Vegas. Over 2,400 exhibitors gathered in 2019, showcasing their latest products to the world; while over 70,000 buyers, seeking out emerging trends and in pursuit of new products, explored the grounds. This trade-only show, not for the general public, may be based in the states, but one in four of its 161,000 attendees come from overseas. Some of these, from Australia. Australia’s own Patriot Campers did not exhibit last year, but Justin and Sarah did attend. SEMA stands for Speciality Equipment Market Association. The association was first founded in 1963 (with the first SEMA show following in 1967); forming its ranks are manufacturers, distributors, retailers, auto-restorers, restylers and others who have a stake in the automative and aftermarket customisation industries. The…

now and then

To be one of the first caravans reviewed in the very first issue of Caravan World all those years ago affords Viscount special status around here. So when we got the opportunity during these hard times to review a new Viscount van for our 600th issue through ARV in Eden, I couldn't pass it up. Eden is nearby to where I live and when we coupled it with a photo location at Frankie J Holden’s Tathra Beachside Caravan Park everything fell into place for a safe COVID-19-compliant event. When I showed Tom from ARV that original review, it brought a smile to his face. It’s not surprising that the young millennial would find the cocktail cabinet and terylene drapes amusing. You also have to admit that the option of a family version with…

like lightning

“With a hitch to tail light length of just 3297mm, this camper requires only a small footprint, and with its good ground clearance it would be capable of going just about anywhere” Manufacturers have changed how they market their campers over the past couple of years. We’ve seen the side-fold soft-floor fall from favour, the forward-fold explode in popularity, the hybrid increasingly accepted, and the evolution of smaller, more agile campers with rapid set-up and pack-down. Dropping straight into that latter category is the Conqueror UEV-310 V2. Conqueror rode to fame in Australia on the back of their larger UEV models, at a time when they were among the few hybrid-style campers on the market. But in recent years, they’ve expanded their range to include smaller campers. The smallest of these is…

a slide-out or two

Sunliner is a manufacturer that builds a wide range of motorhomes. It has everything from the Fiat Ducato based Rialta van conversion to the Mercedes Benz powered Olantas to the flagship Isuzu-powered Monte Carlo. Oh, and there’s a fifth wheeler too, the North Shore, for anyone who prefers towing. In between all that is the Switch range. I like the way it’s described on the Sunliner website: “the entry point into the Sunliner range of premium motorhomes.” It’s always good to read the full sentence because the price tag of this motorhome is around the $190K mark. What you get, though, is great deal of bang for your buck. One reason I chose the S494G model is that it comes with a couple of interesting features — an offside slide-out and a…
