Sorry to see it happen to your new vehicle.
But so glad it was well wrapped in steel, those bloody things do some really expensive damage without it.

Its all good mate :thumbsup: - got it looked at by insurance company today, booked in and parts all ordered, 5-7 days for them to come in and then about 3 days turnaround on fixing it up again, should not slow down the prepration much (I hope:pray:)

Saw the roo today - he hadn't moved since our meeting on Wednesday, so on balance I came out of it a lot better off than he did

No - it still looks pretty untidy. Spoke to the panel beater last Friday and he is expecting the rest of the parts tomorrow, so with any sort of luck it goes in first thing Tuesday and I pick it up on Friday.

The roo should have been good enough to jump right over.

With only a week to go before we head off to the desert, spent the weekend doing the last minute stuff. The roo damage was all fixed the week before last, so nothing major was outstanding

My slider/steps arrived from Wasp4x4 in Adelaide during the week, so fitted them up:

They fit well, and are quite strong - tested them out with the hilift and they did not budge at all so they look like they are up to the job.

I fitted a pair of jerry can racks to the back of the camper in the place of the second spare tyre mount:

So I am pretty ready for the trip, the camper is packed, all the non-perishable food is packed already, just got to pack the perishables next weekend and some clothes and then we are off :biggrin:
