A quick introduction from a down under newbie. I don't own a Sportsmobile but hopefully will; in the interim I have time to look around.
I spoke to SheriffDoug about his EB350 on the other side of this country and yes, the Australian government has almost made it impossible to import any vehicle from overseas with a few exceptions. It's OK if you're a major manufacturer however specialist vehicles like a Sportsmobile, the government really isn't helpful at all.
Anyway I'll most likely pick everyone's brains and search posts to help me decide although I already have an idea of what I want, only time will tell.
I'd like to get over there in 2019 when I retire and tour the USA and Canada, and then bring it back here and tour NZ and Australia. That way it can come into the country as a personal import. In the meantime I've e-mailed Doug, my engineer and Eagle Automotive (NZ).
