Looks a treat mate! I reckon it looks better than the Windsor too.

Regal are considered a good van so hopefully this one should serve you well.

Cheers!

So what's it like towing a block of flats? Wink

That annexe looks fairly new.

I reckon it looks better than your old Windsor.

Cool

Tows ok mate but geez the cruiser uses the juice. Roll out awning was apparently was replaced with a new Dometic/A&E under insurance 12 months ago, got damaged in a storm. Its great as it came with the walls,a tarp for the floor and marine carpet to go on the tarp. Also came with a second anexe that has full shadecloth walls that mounts on the other side of the van although in C/van parks siutes are probably not big enough to run everything. It does look good Scol but I miss the Windsor, I loved that van.This although 3 ft bigger does'nt tow anywhere as good as the Windsor as the Windsor had Full independant suspension (Safety Tow). This comes in at a fraction under 22ft

Yeah she's a biggin. I have'nt scrapped yet but yeah on uneven ground I reckon it would as there is not much clearance. I'm waiting for some better weather to put the walls on the annexe up and if there is enough length I am going to undersling the axles as its too low.

Not as far as I know. Never have before. Do you have to let the DOT know do you?

My understanding is that it is illegal to do it without the manufacturers consent.

If you go to CF and do a search on 'underslinging' there is a myriad of info there which will confuse you as they tend to argue a lot.

In Qld ANY modifcation has to be reported and inspected. I had a chassis rasier put on my Jayco but didn't worry aboout getting the DOT to check it as it was nicely hidden and was not underslung.

Good luck
