I loved the design, the ease of putting it up, the speed of putting it down. although the Annex was a bit awkward to thread up to the point of the roof, but once used to it, got better and quicker. With Annex and staying for a period of time in one place, it was great, with two teenage boys in the annex. Can be towed by almost anything, low ball weight, wouldn't know it was attached when driving, so easy. Easy to back and set up for the night. Had a few breakages before it got off the yard when we bought it, but they were all fixed and we ...left before anything fell off! Worth the buy overall. Great small caravan for travelling when you need to put it up in a hurry. Great to stop and put it up for a 'cuppa. Can be pulled by small 4cl 1600 car, yes really!! We pulled it with a Mazda Premacy, later by Nissan X-trail and you wouldn't know it was on. Not really good for more than two people, although we had one child travelling with us. No storage space for clothes, very little for kitchen goods and food, so awkward when you need to cook.
Can't beat them. The solid sides are a definite advantage over the wind up campers, not to mention the soft floor ones.
Can be put up in less then a minute. Easy enough to put up for lunch on the road.
Tows like a dream. Does not increase fuel consumption of my Prado when towing by much. Self sufficient with battery pack and Solar charger. Good build quality when compared with other wind up camper which I had before. No Canvas or flimsy roof supports to worry about in strong winds.
Good for 2 people - would not suggest to try with more.
This van beats all campers and caravans if you need only a simple way of camping in comfort. Because the roof is so well insulated the temperture inside is bearable. Add the top hatches that can be opened and "bob is your uncle"
The rear bumperbar is for tent poles, but like in our case its a permanent fishing rod storage.
This camper is soooooo easy to tow. I have to look in my mirrors regularly to make sure the van is still there. I am towing with a 2.2 diesel. Its so easy to set it up. It attracts most of the time curiosity with other campe...

Questions & Answers
Hi, We've just bought a 2005 Avan Aliner and would like to increase ground clearance a couple of inches. The rims are 14" and going to 15" with a higher profile tyre is an one idea. Before going down that path, can someone tell me if this is possible ie done it themselves and if there are any challenging consequences to doing this? Another idea is a body lift. I've no idea if this can be done or if a kit is available or who to contact to make further enquiries. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Kind regards, Brian and Leanne Kerr
There's some discussion of this on this very good video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yv9SQYVlC0&t=4s
Have 2001 ALiner - any suggestions of the best way to transport 2 adult Mountain bikes?
There’s companies that sell all types of bike rakes that would be suitable for A liners and/or look on the bike rack web page
Thanks Davo - the racks I've seen don't take into account the short drawbar and location of the twin LP cylinders - if you could - could you direct me to page where I might see what you are referring to? which bike rack web page are you referring to please? Thanks Curt
