The Covid-19 travel restrictions have unfortunately defeated our publishing schedule, and we have had to push back the next issue of Roam magazine by one month. Apologies to all our readers who were hoping to get stuck into the next issue in a few days time.
With all Caravan Parks, Camping Grounds and National Parks closed for the last two months, the ability to travel around Australia, take new caravans out for a review, and generally perform all the other tasks required to put together a travel magazine were pretty much taken away from us
Amidst all the mayhem however, we consider ourselves here at ‘Roam’ magazine very lucky! While we continued to work where we could, we have watched many within the caravan and camping industry suffer reduced trading, temporary closures, having to let go of staff members, and in some cases having to close the doors of the businesses for good as the costs to continue were just too high.
So as things start to open up again, if you can, put a weekend or two aside over the next couple of months and book yourselves into a local caravan park or campground and spend a few dollars in a country town. If you are lucky enough to have not been affected with your job and you were looking at a new caravan or camper, now is the time to visit your local dealer and place an order. And if you are coming to the end of your favourite caravan magazine subscription, there isn’t a better time to invest $49 on a new 12-month subscription!
We hope you are all coping well during the crisis and are working towards your next big trip!
The ‘Time to Roam’ team.
