Second A'van

published

Our original A'van purchased in 1998 served us extremely well over 17 years and we have just updated to a new one. The build quality is good but I fear the quality of the actual chassis will not live as long(Chinese steel) Think this is general across the industry now. We had a double bed but advancing years made it difficult during the night!! Now with singles, much better. Water tap on the front draw bar good idea and the hot water system for the round bowl sink is a great improvement. Annoyingly I, a 162 cm female,was able to easily put up the roof on our previous model, yet I could not lift the new one (and this is from one day to the next) - must be weightier in the construction.

Floor Plan2 single beds (at either end)

We bought our Avan Aliner after taking a year to research what fitted us. We started thinking about a Toyota Hiace and this grew to a Daf 4 tonne truck but luckily we narrowed it down to between an Avan Aliner and a Jayco Swan the Avan won. It has no wet canvas to repack or to blow in the breeze and the Avan is fully insulated and can be put up by my wife in 3 minutes. After 16 years and over 100000K and having slept in it for over a year we still love going away in it.

Done five trips. Update.

Still good. Keep gas.

Still good. Put on a fold down external table. Excellent idea (also superbly executed, hum!). Bought ten dollar four way wheel brace at pawn shop. Also good. Still small, but still good.

We are contemplating getting another Aliner. Have tried a larger caravan that needed a larger vehicle and now with a Forester the Aliner is the best match.
Excellent unit for two people. We found storage not a problem and ample for our needs.The extra space under double bed most useful. We had ours from 1998 to 2004
covering trips tp Queensland, prospecting in WA - being towed by our then Liberty waggon proved an excellent combination
The condensation from roof joint, mostly overcome with vents slightly open

Great for two..

We have a 2004 CruiseLiner with many extras and find it an excellent proposition after a Jayco Freedom .. The Avan is easier to tow and much more sensibly designed. The only drawback compared is the annexe assembly but once you become familiar with the routine it adds just a few more minutes to dropping the awning. Allup a fantastic unit!!!
Towing ease, sensible storage
Annexe assembly V rollout awning

Ticks all our boxes-easy to use/fits in garage/easy to tow/no canvas! Just pullup at any pleasant looking spot, and before you know it, the kettle's on, and a snack is on the way.
Solid, easy to set up, easy to store and tow. Plenty of natural light, and innovative design.
You must be minimalist with the gear you take and keep everything tidy and be disciplined with a place for everything & everything in its place as storage is at a premium

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.

Aliner

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 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
