There were 10 caravans parked at the Serviceton Football Club from last Friday to Sunday, members in that time appointing Trevor Hueppauff from Millicent as their new branch president.

There to officiate the announcement was Naracoorte resident and ACC Sundowners president Therese Gregory who is also the organiser for the October 13 first SA National Muster at Lucindale.

Mrs Gregory and secretary Deb Bott encouraged other caravan and RV owners to join the branch as something fun and social.

The idea is that if you are travelling around that you can join other musters, its about friendships and common interest while using our vans more often," Mrs Bott said.

"We are finding that are looking to join the group because they don't go on long trips but are looking to meet other caravaners.

"It's all about freedom and exploring Australia and the warmth of meeting other people - its almost another community."

The Australian Caravan Club is a national body and membership includes owners of caravans and other RVs including campervans and motorhomes.

There are 30 branches in every state of Australia including Tasmania. Members of any clubs are encouraged to travel and meet with other branches.

Not only is it about fun, but the ACC is active in lobbying all tiers of government to maintain and improve facilities for all caravan and RV enthusiasts.

The Limestone Coasters is the third SA branch and had its first meeting in May when it formed before the board was appointed.
