Roadstar, Compass show comfort on the road

Roadstar and Compass had some quality rigs on show at their headquarters in the Melbourne suburb of Somerton at the weekend.

GoSeeAustralia took notebook and camera and headed for the display yesterday. We did some hard looking at the Roadstar, Compass approach to being comfortable on the road. 
Roadstar took the Trainer of the Year Award at the CRVA Conference in Surfers this month. They made it a  double success when Roadstar's Tony Bellamy won the Eric Hayman Award for Services to the Industry.
His personal and the company commitment to training skilled tradespeople was recognised.

There are factory tours for those who want to see what makes their products run. If you go to the Roadstar, at 260 Hume Hwy, (Sydney Road) Somerton. Please note it is 260 HUME HWY, Somerton, not Hume Freeway. If you come from the east, via Greensborough and use the Hume Freeway it is great quick run, but the freeway must be left at Cooper St. That takes you west to the Hume Hwy (31). Turn right into the Hume Hwy and Roadstar is on your right a few Ks up. It is not far from Apollo Gardens Tourist Park. There is some great design. For example have a look at the impressive lounge in the Magnifique on show.

Here of some shots we took on the first of the two open days.
Just hold your cursor over each picture to read the picture lines.
