We made our way to Australian Motor Homes at Bennetts Green to have the ladder, which had suffered a too close encounter with a power pole, repaired. They were quick, efficient, skilled and their coffee is something to write home about (if we had a home, that is).
At Lardner Park, I had seen a Mazda T4600 motorhome fitted with Firestone air helper springs being shown by a guy from Rutherford near Maitland. We decided to call in there to check them out. The specs seem to be just what is needed to overcome the limitations of the original Mazda suspension.
The Motley is booked in for the addition of a little bit of aerostatic support on Thursday so we travelled to the nearest non-slum caravan park
