"Carapace" the coaster's website.

carapace   \KAIR-uh-pace\, noun:
1. The thick shell that covers the back of the turtle, the crab, and other animals.
2. Something likened to a shell that serves to protect or isolate from external influence.

Kim and I bought the Motorhome from a New Zealand couple that had just finished a six month tour of Queensland and were heading home. We gave it a good service and a good going over to get it ready for a " 'round OZ trip". We have all the receipts etc. We have enjoyed taking it away on several overnight and short trips to test it out and get it just right. We love it.

We now find ourselves with a serious illness in the family and have decided to move to melbourne to help out etc. We will have no room in Melbourne and we will be there for awhile so it is with reluctance that we put "Carapace" up forsale.

We only want to cover the cost of the unit and the major outlays.
We know it is a reliable, safe and comfortable unit that will bring lots of easy, relaxed motoring.

Below are some pictures and the specifications of the unit.
