Jenz now has a Trio .. 86 Trakka Bronco Deluxe 2WD


I picked up our newest edition on Saturday morning thanks to my ever alert mechanic Michael who knew I was on the prowl again

It feels weird but I don't have a name for him yet except for' d Trakka'

Trakka had been owned by one couple, who do to ill health had to part with him ... so that's the sad part :(

We can tell by all the extras...and from what Michael said...the miles they had covered, Trakka was much enjoyed in the 20 odd years they had had him

All that had to be done on the RWC was the Rear Brakes...the tyres would have made it through but I thought new light truck tyres would be the go to have it up to scatch from the start :kiss

d Trakka has two solar panels on the roof...hot and cold water...shower...shower annexe which clips around the lifted rear door/tail gate..a pull out side awning...all sorts of things that open and shut

The bed is so comfy...I was really surprised that I could feel the ridge in the seat when it was down :sandrine

Being a girl I didn't take pics of the 2 amplifiers it has to the drivers right under the dash to control the music...I haven't found all of the speakers yet but it will pump out some sounds..but may change it to a CD/Radio...I have no cassettes

We took Trakka to Mansfield for a run...I wanted to see how it ran and to get it all up and happening ...except for the hot shower and tent annexe at the back this trip

Hmmmm I had Mr Blod shake his finger at me as I was travelling at 120 along the highway...luckily he didn't turn around and I found that most people were passing me the next day on the way home so go figure...I wonder if my speedo is out :D

We haven't tried to swivel the seats around yet either....apparently the Trakka doesn't start if the passenger seat is not in it's right position for driving :rolleyes:

...last pick....my Trio...Bel...Dr Livington...and the Trakka

I felt like I was in a version of the Castle...move the Type 3 out...uncover the beetle...move her out...drive the Trakka in...Bel back in...cover her..and then my trusty daily driver Dr L guarding the drive and ready to zoom me to the station in the morn :thumb

Nice buy Jen.

With regards to your speedo, trakkas travel faster going clockwise so you were travelling faster there and slower on the way home!

baybuscamperkid small world isn't it...yep it's Dr L my every faithfull daily ride to the station each day...I get such a warm feeling when I spot him in the evening waiting where I left him...I feel home...I luv giving him a run on a weekend so he can actually get his engine warm and to feel the wind carressing him a little...he never fails me...starts first time, every time

Goodness the other week I was gazing out the train window as we came into Ringwood and I saw the Dr's TWIN!!! Argh!!! My heart raced...had someone taken him for a ride and left him at Ringwood??? Should I get out of the train at Ringwood...it had to be him...I was trying to see things that I might recognise??!!! The train moved out..I was looking back thining I would have to catch the train back...was it him...would the Dr be waiting for me...it was a bad dream ARGH!! Train approaches Ringwood East.... I felt like pacing the carriage with worry...we pass the boom gates...my nose is against the window as I try to spot him in the dark....There he was sitting where I had left him, I almost cried....it felt so good to open his door, sit in the seat...touch the wheel and tell him how much I loved him :kiss

I haven't seen his twin since...SPOOKY :alien


Squizy he is definitely a he .... only thing is is that Eddies bro is a Terry...but it's a great name... I might have people wonder why I didn't call him Simon or Evan..or Lionel or something ... can't have favourites :D

Tracey....and the bed will be SO much more comfy....goodness I had the worst night at Kennet River when the airbed kept deflating GRRRRRRRR

Mmmmmmm this is going to be so good!!! You know how if your've had a big night out and a long drive home n you just wish there was a magic carpet to fly you home...we have a travelling bed now!!!! Pull the curtains across and instant home....might even wake up in the morn near the place you wanted to go the next day... out side your fav cafe with an all day breakfast :yes:

d Trakka is definitely a great buy :tu:

... and I haven't!! The TRAKKA is on the market unfortunately, am in two minds about selling, still the best camper. Just got a 4WD to do road trips to NT to visit my son & his little family (partner & number two grandson), Simon said 'Mum you need to get off road', so we are, in a (hush!!) Toyota... cos they are apparently the most driven up there & parts are easier to get if you need them... and people know how to fix them if you do get stuck!! I'm still mechanically challenged & Eddie even more so!!!
