hi and thanks for your replys they are strict on imports well they have to be rewired for 230 v and the entrance doors are on the wrong side.....plus the steering wheel ect moved to the (wrong) side...... the width of a motorhome is less than the us.....but all the motorhomes i mentioned are already here in australia and compliant so a bit like cuba we keep them running....we have a lot of buses that are converted to motorhomes if i had 500,000 oz dollars i would like a rexhall airbus but i will have to put that one on the back burner.....all the motorhomes mentioned were imported to australia and customs officers are definately to be avoided at all costs


what about the coachman miradas there are quite a few here


thanks for any help
