After what seemed like a lifetime of a wait the day finally came to pick up our new home on wheels.
When the house sold we spent countless hours online and weekends driving around looking at vans all over Melbourne. We were looking for a van with 3 bunks, ensuite and amazing storage. We had searched high and low for the ‘perfect van’
We then came across New Age Caravans located in Epping. We fell in love with their Manta Ray 22ft, Bunk Ensuite Combo. Wow, what a little home away from home. With all the mod cons that we could ever need, we knew this was the one! We had New Age hold it for us till settlement, we would then organise a day for handover. Finally 2 weeks following settlement came the big day! We sent Ivy off to school & Haddie to daycare and took the little man along for the ride to pick up our new home.
Upon arriving we saw it sitting there awaiting for us to hook her up. After a lengthy handover going over every little nook and cranny, what did what, what key unlocked what we were on the road with the big girl behind us. What a sight, after months of anticipation we finally had the van of our dreams.
We arrived home and had an entourage of people to welcome us. The girls were stoked and loved their new beds the most, to be a kid again hey.
We have since gone away for a night free camping about an hours drive away just out of Creswick, at a camping ground called ‘Slaty Creek Picnic & Campground’. We hope to go away a few times before the lap.
