A woman RVer stranded for two days in one of the remotest parts of Australia has said she thought she was going to die as she walked miles in blistering heat for help.

Beth Lawrie, 56, walked 25km in temperatures exceeding 40C to get reception on her mobile phone after her motorhome broke down in the remote north-west of the state of Victoria.

Her RV came to a halt in the middle of the Murray Sunset National Park, a huge area of semi desert outback, miles from the nearest settlement.

For eight hours she tried to fix her Ford Transit Van before deciding the only option she had left was to walk for help.

She said “I thought OK, get into survival mode and do what you have to do. And that means walk.”

The RVing Examiner today confirmed reports that workers at Ford Motor Company’s Claycomo, Kansas City-based assembly plant will build the iconic Ford Transit van – Europe’s best-selling commercial vehicle – beginning in 2013. The US introduction of the Ford Transit van chassis – which remains one of the top base vehicle choices for many European RV coachbuilders including Auto-Campers, Chausson, Tribute and Westfalia (CVC) – will help accelerate the RV industry’s push for smaller and more economical RV’s in North America.

The Ford Transit was judged the best base vehicle by Britain’s Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly (MMM) magazine in both 2008 and 2009. In 2010, Practical Motorhome magazine voted Auto-Trail’s Tribute T620 motorhome – based on the Ford Transit chassis – the best budget-buy motorhome and the overall motorhome of the year. The magazine also voted the Tribute T720 – again on the Transit chassis – as runner-up in the best family motorhome category.
