Default RVs Down Under

A mass fly-in would be fun, but probably a stretch.

Do all you guys in Australia have to have inverted oil systems...since you're all upside down all the time and all?

Upside down from a UK perspective. In Oz they are in an approximate 40° inverted turn from the US point of view.

No, but we have to climb to reach the ground.

Default Down?
