The Australian CamperTrailers Group's 14th national meet was held in the Bungendore Showground over the week from Monday 1st to Friday 5th October 2018. Bungendore is located on the Kings Highway around forty kilometres east of Canberra ACT in the NSW Southern Tablelands.

The week attracted eighty camper trailers, caravans, motorhomes, slide-ons & tents with one-hundred & eighty people from as far a field as the South Australia, Victoria, Queensland & Tasmania. It was great to see such a diverse group of people attending, from young couples, families, retirees to grandparents with their grandkids, all enjoying the camaraderie of like-minded people.

While the nights were chilly with a couple of frosty mornings, the days were mostly warm & sunny, however a cool change midweek & a few spots of rain didn't spoil the fun.

A big thanks goes to the Bungendore Showground for supplying the much needed firewood to keep everyone warm during the cold evenings. 

monday morning opening

For something a little different the opening was held on Monday morning. Kevin Phillips welcomed members & went on to tell of the groups beginnings in September 2001 & how the group has grown to the present day, owing to the popularity of camper trailers. The website has three medias for members to exchange tips, tricks & travel information, namely the long running Yahoo Group, a Forum & a Facebook Group.

Rotary Club Present Garry Cook welcomed the Australian CamperTrailers Group to Bungendore & wished all a pleasant visit to the region.

Rob Sanderson described the itinerary for the week with events & workshops hosted by members or invited guests on a variety of subjects relating to camper trailers & camping in general.

Jason Cox went on to outline the showground housekeeping over the week. 

Twenty Mister Hitches T bubble levels, donated by Steve Nicholson from Intertrade Holdings Pty Ltd, were drawn as lucky door prizes.

Joy and Dave Wilkinson finished the opening by hosting a 'Getting to Know You' session with members attending their first national meet introducing themselves.

The Australian CamperTrailers Groups 14th national meet was declared officially open. Members were then invited into the kitchen pavilion for tea or coffee.
