WE KNOW YOU'VE kept an eye on Betsy the retro van, our massive RV giveaway, since we launched the competition a few months back.

But we thought we'd better shine the spotlight on the other big (and we mean BIG) prizes up for grabs at some of the magazines with which we share our stable.

The first comes from our sister publication, Camper Trailer Australia. If you've ever considered subscribing to this adventure-packed mag, now is the time: you could score yourself a brand new Vacation offroad camper, valued at over $21,000. The rig comes with its own Engel fridge, ARB Portable Twin Motor Air Compressor and ARB Premium Recovery kit – that's just about all you need to get off the bitumen.

Our mates over at TrailerBoat magazine have also been working on something special: the team purchased a Savage Jabiru and proceeded to completely kit it out, with the aim of handing the helm to one lucky reader. Bazziru, as the project boat is now known, just scored a brand new stereo system, so the lucky winner can listen to bangin' tunes while hauling a catch with a little help from the GME chartplotter/fishfinder. Not a bad grab.

On the subject of boats, and project ones at that, there's an insane giveaway happening over at Trade-a-Boat magazine (otherwise known as the boatie's bible). Ralfy V is the name of the editorial team's pride and joy – a Mariner Pacer 760 from 1976. Ralfy's brilliant original fitouts hark back to boating days of yore, while updates like the MerCruiser 350hp Stroker engine, Sovereign barbecue, Waeco fridge/freezer, Raymarine GPS-chartplotter and VHF radio, and brand new Sirocco tender ensure its new owner won't be left behind in luxury on the water. This prizepack is valued at a whopping $70K. Enter here.

Of course, we have a soft spot for Betsy – her revamped original interior and unwavering 1960s spirit – but any big toy is a big win, and we sure wouldn't say no to a prize camper or boat to welcome in the new year.

Good luck, all.
