About PEDRO

Hi, thanks for your interest in booking our van.
PEDRO is a 2018 Pop-top Expanda. He sleeps up to 6 and has everything you need for a family holiday... right down to the games. All you need to bring is food, clothes and bedding (fitted sheets supplied but no blankets or pillows. Those you must bring)

PEDRO has been fitted with a 100 amp hour battery and a solar panel should you want to try one of the many beautiful 'free camping' spots. PEDRO also has a hot and cold outside shower for those times that you need to get rid of some sand before you get inside the van.
Please note however, PEDRO is NOT an Off-Road van and therefore OFF ROAD USE STRICTLY FORBIDDEN! Travel on gravel roads MUST be with PRIOR OWNER APPROVAL. Gravel damages the van and this van is an ON ROAD van only.

Special Towing Information

Also see Safety Information section lower down.

Towing Mirrors - You will require mirrors. A basic set of towing mirrors can be supplied for an extra fee of $10.00 per hire. However, they may or may not suit your particular vehicle. If unsure please provide your own mirrors.

Tow vehicle - To Tow this van we recommend your vehicle have a towing capacity of at least 2500 kg with tow bar able to match this. Compliance with towing loads and capacity is the hirer's responsibility and legal liability. If unsure consult a towing specialist, your vehicle manufacturer or automotive specialist in this field like a tow bar supplier and installer.
Test pre hire hitch up:. The owners will be happy to do a "test" hitch up before a hire term provided a suitable time can be arranged. This "test hitch up" DOES NOT confirm weights! It only confirms lights, indicators, fit to tow ball, tow ball height, fitment of towing chains to vehicle hitch. The hirer is STILL responsible for compliance to towing weights and compliance with legal towing requirements for his vehicle and its use. A test hitch should be done at least one or two weeks before hire in case you need to make any changes to your vehicle. Please discuss with owner if interested. Turning up on the day only to find out your vehicle is NOT compatible with the caravan will ruin your holiday and the owner will NOT release the van if your vehicle is NOT suitable. It is illegal to tow with an unmatched and unsafe set up.

Brake Controller: For a fee of $50.00 per hire we can supply a brake controller
fitted to the van which will require the hirer to download a free App onto their smart phone.
Make sure your mobile is charged and up to date with access to the network. During towing the phone must be used ONLY as allowed by legislation! Usually this means in a cradle as per mobile phone usage laws whilst driving.

We will supply you with an information package and checklist of important points prior to your taking delivery of the van and any questions or concerns by yourselves or us will be addressed then. We encourage a pre hire test fit of your vehicle with the van. Please discuss this with owners Before hand.

Some important things to consider are:
SPEED LIMITS: Speed limits are to be complied with at all times and the maximum speed for a towed trailer is 100 kilometres per hour even when travelling on a road with a limit of 110 km per hour.
DRIVING SKILLS: If you have experience towing this will help. If you are inexperienced in towing please know towing is dangerous and requires lots of attention while driving.
OTHER ROAD USERS: Many drivers do not appreciate your load when towing and so they can be impatient and follow too closely which can be distracting. They will often cut you off or cut in and this is challenging at best of times. Even harder to stop or slow down when you weigh an extra two tonnes or more!! You will need more patience when towing.
REVERSING: This one is challenging especially for the inexperienced. If you are unsure of your reversing skills, especially in a tight and busy place like a caravan park we suggest you do a towing course. It is an investment into your own skillset.

Towing Capacity Safety:
Check what your vehicles maximum towing capacity is as well as the maximum download your tow ball can receive.
For safety reason we suggest your vehicle have a towing capacity of 2500kg and a tow ball down load capacity of 200kg. Less than these figures starts to make your margin for safety very small.
This Caravan has a Ball Weight of 150 kg unloaded, and an ATM of 2309 kg. The ATM is the maximum load of the caravan with payload and must NOT be exceeded. If you are not sure of your vehicle capacity consult your vehicle manual or manufacturer or towing specialist. As above, consider doing a test hitch up beforehand. If your tow hitch is too LOW you cannot tow this van.

Additional Information

If you need the van(PEDRO) to be taken to your holiday spot, depending on the circumstances and timing we may tow him and set him up for you. However, distance and time may be a factor so Please discuss this with us (owners) if you wish to consider this as an extra service by the owners.

BBQ, tables, chairs and towing adaptor are EXTRA costs upon request. Pedro has 12 pin flat plug wiring harness for connection to towing vehicle. Owner has a 12 to 7 pin flat adaptor and is an EXTRA charge if required. Check the wiring connection on your vehicle for compatibility to flat plug!

Pedro is an immaculate van that is perfect for families, we had 2 adults and 3 small children, to take away and is in showroom new condition.
Geoff and Sabine are very helpful and accomodating when planning and setting up.
The van comes with comprehensive instructions which makes it simple for even first time vanners.
It comes with comprehensive inclusions, the only addition I would suggest is an additional privacy screen for the awning.

Beautiful clean van that was very comfortable and well equipped. Caravan contained everything we needed and more. Lovely to tow and easy to set up/use. Geoff and Sabine went above and beyond to help us out with getting set up and organised. Detailed instructions were provided for every aspect of using the van which was an amazing help! I would definitely hire from them again.
