I'll be helping the in-laws move to Keller, TX the week of Osh, but hopefully I can steal a car for a morning and come out to see some RV's. If there are any around that week...

Wow thanks for the replies guys, thought maybe us Aussies are not popular for some reason.
I'll touch base wth you guys when I arrive into DFW July 8th, coming from a cold place here in Oz I'll warm up fast I'd say!

As others have said, Hicks Field and Northwest Regional airports have lots of RVs. Jay Pratt at Hicks always has several RVs being built, and Northwest has Walt, Randy, and Doug's hanger.

If you go to Northwest Regional, you should stop at Roanoke to grab a burger at Twisted Root, or get some BBQ at Hard Eight. If you want a Chain Bruger then Whataburger is the official Texas burger place (according to my son and his friends!).

Have fun looking around! I would take time off work but just came back from an 11 day trip flying around North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama and have to catch up on work.

Default Hicks Airport (T67)

Is also a beehive of RV talent. Jay Pratt may be absent when you arrive (he may leave for OSH early for volunteer duties) but ask around for plenty of RV people on the airport. Check by my hangar #230 and I can refer you several RV8 owners and introduce you to a Texas-size burger at the local Beacon Cafe.
I'd love to visit OZ again - last time was in 1977 to Amberly RAF Station near Brisbane during my first life as a military pilot.
