A new competitor - https://www.campertraileraustralia.com.au/campertrailer-reviews/1807/brs-offroad-sherpa-review

A lot smaller and the suspension is pretty standard. Nice and light with good clearance though. Still in the prototype form so with some improvements this could be a cracker!

Had a guy with one of these at a camp not long ago,  they have potential but I found getting in and out through the door a bit of a hassle, I’m sure you get used to it, but the up top tent was simply a pain, there low on storage even by TVan standards it will be interesting to watch how they go in the future

And a Mountian of stuff I don't think we need but apparently it's vital camp equipment.

G'day,
We had a Mitchell pull up near us out around Kalumbaru I think last year. The owner came over to ask how much dust we got in and if the tvan leaked much. He was spitting chips that he'd bought option 2 instead of option 1 after I'd answered  his questions - but hey, they do look pretty!
Cheers
Jim

There was a Pioneer Mitchell pulled up outside Track in Bayswater when I was dropping off the Tvan to get the roof vent replaced.
Not sure who, or why he was there.  Was driving a Cruiser 4 door ute with a big box canopy on the tray.  Ute was a v8 and a Dk. Grey from memory.

I have it on good authority that he has since sold the Mitchell and has a Tvan on order!!

That's sounds like a very familiar rig. Good chance it's the same bloke. Lyn tells me we were at one of the stations off the GRR - should have remembered that because you wouldn't get a Mitchell to Kalumbaru!
Well, you might but you wouldn't get it back! (Wish I had some good emojis to add here but I haven't so I'll ust have to go with LOL)
Cheers

My brother in law has the Gascoyne,  Destroyed shockers,  struts, and water tank mounting brackets broken tank almost fell out. Not much competition really!
