Jayco Caravan

Competition – BMPRO &  Brisbane Camperland Prizes

(See blog below for more details)


Brisbane Camperland is located in one of Brisbane’s eastern suburbs – in Tingalpa. That’s just a 30 minute drive from the CBD.

They’re located just off the Gateway Motorway – so, the chances are that you’ll be able to drive your new ‘pride and joy’ most of the way home on a nice wide road north, south or perhaps on the Logan Motorway west.

Dayv’s History with Brisbane Camperland

Yes, I have had a vested interest in Brisbane Camperland since early 2000.

We were out looking for a caravan to see the two of us and our two (then) young kids on our holiday adventures and travels.

We fell in love with a 16’ pop-top caravan with a north-south double-bed (for the length) and two bunks in the front.

Then salesman, Josh Carnavas, was the guy who looked after us and he soon had us squared away for our first trip to Bundaberg and Bagara over Easter.

Now, some 21 years later, our kids have grown up (and away) and Josh is the Managing Director of Brisbane Camperland.

Then, only last year (just before the COVID closures), we bought our new van (a Jayco 19.61-2) – again through Josh and his team.

Interviews with Josh from Brisbane Camperland

In keeping with my offer to help camp and travel businesses get the good word out, I offered Josh the ‘chance of a lifetime’ – for me to interview him and share all the good goss’ on Brisbane Camperland, Jayco and the caravan and motorhome industry generally. Ok, I was pretty damn excited too.

From what was a longer chat, I’ve developed a short series of separate videos which will take you through such topics as:

Part 1

  • The Carnavas family’s history with Brisbane Camperland;
  • Jayco’s history in Australia;
  • The highs and lows of the caravan industry over the years; and
  • Caravan style changes over time;

Part 2


Part 3 – To be released

  • Brisbane Camperland’s divisions

Part 4 – To be released

  • Understanding loads and tow vehicle capacities;
  •  What’s next in caravan and tow vehicle design; and
  • What’s next for Brisbane Camperland.

Watch them all, watch them in order or just watch the ones that most interest you – hey share them too if you like them.

I hope you enjoy these discussions as much as I did.

I also look forward to see you out and about; and I invite you to join me and others on our Facebook Group ‘In The Tent’ – https://www.facebook.com/groups/501769664591972/.

Only Registrants ‘In The Tent’ on the web (www.campandtravel.com.au/engage) OR those in the Facebook Group ‘In The Tent’ (www.Facebook.com/groups/501769664591972) are eligible to simply send me an email at dayv@campandtravel.com.au and tell me if you have a BMPRO Control Node 103 unit fitted to your Jayco caravan or motorhome OR if you simply own a BMPRO Control Node 103 unit fitted to another setup.

Entries will remain open through until 6:00 pm 31 July 2021 and the winner will be drawn at random from eligible entrants living in Australia. My choice will be final and the prize pack will be posted to the winner.

Note: First name drawn with a Jayco caravan or motorhome AND a BMPRO Control Node 103 get the lot. Alternatively, the first name drawn who has the BMPRO Control Node in other than a Jayco wins the Sensor Pack only – in which case, the Brisbane Camperland Welcome Pack will go to the next Jayco owner drawn with the BMPRO Control Node fitted.

Good luck and thanks to BMPRO and Brisbane Camperland for your support and the great offer to those ‘In The Tent’.
