NEWBIES FIRST TRIP !

One of the many perks of being national sales manager at GoRV is that every now and then I get to test out the latest products and RVs . Although I have worked in the caravan and camping industry for over 12 years , my travelling experience with actual RVs is limited . My partner , Harvey , and I live in an apartment in St Kilda and drive a Ford Focus – this probably says enough .
We absolutely love camping with a tent , the outdoors and hiking though , so when AVIDA offered a brand-new Busselton motorhome for a multi-day test trip , I was the first one to put my hand up !
While visiting the New South Wales Caravan , Camping , Holiday Supershow in April , I passed the AVIDA stand to have a look at the motorhome that I was about to take out .
And boy , it is a big unit – 7.5m long , 2.32m wide and 3.13m high . Being slightly intimidated by the size , we asked our more experienced neighbours to join us on the trip . Surprisingly , the AVIDA Busselton can be driven on a standard car licence and marketing manager Billy Falconer ensured me that there was nothing to worry about .
