Van for a quick escape

published

Easy to tow and extremely fast in erection. No canvas and very watertight. Caught in an eastern coast blow in Byron (in my earlier 2003 model) and had to pack up in rain. Didn’t open up van for six weeks expecting mould and a big cleanup but clean as a whistle.

Bought a newer model this year (2013) with a/c heating and microwave.

Very very happy!

Shoddy finish

published

Sealant looks like an 8 year's old work.
Battery is starting to smell.
Small top vent cracked.
Lock on lugs on jack wheel don't line up.
awning is a nightmare.

Currently three thousands kms from home and all of these issues have surfaced.
We purchased this van second hand but it had not done 900kms so was virtually brand new.

We have a door lock problem with our Cruiseliner . Right from day one the lock was hard to operate,took it back to avan.They said no problem they are all like that.My partner cant operate the lock with the key.It also comes unlocked during transit.After recently having the first $280 service they still refuse to replace this lock. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Terry

Battery caught on fire

published

Lucky we were not in bed when battery caught on fire, caused a lot of smoke, not confident sleeping in it. Fire brigade put out fire and after 6 weeks GIO Eventually paid up. Not good enough!

Super van but customer service leaves a lot to be desired

published

I had a problem with customer service which they could have fixed no problem but they didn't and the reply I got was very very terse so if I change or upgrade I could well think again

We are now enjoying our van for short breaks away . The ease and speed of pack up is amazing . Fingers crossed for no more issues


Super easy A Van

Very satisfied with our second hand cruiseliner. Very reliable, tows beautifully. Perfect for two. Like all holidays preparation is the key. Correct loading, tyre pressures, brake checks and wheel bearing service all done before we left. Reading some of the less flattering reviews reveals more about problems with owners than vans. Cheers.

Ours is a cruiseliner

published

Love our cruiseliner - only put the awning up if doubtful weather never have used the annex. Our bikes fit in the back of the Prado (seats down) and travel there very happily. We prefer natural campsites so run the fridge on gas and share cooking over campfire BBQ (which fits neatly in the side hatch) and indoors. Love the big front boot. Only reason to upgrade is looking at shower and island bed. It is so easy to tow and will follow the Prado any where we want to go.

Gave up too hard

published

In the end too small alone and too hard to put the annex up. Traded on a 16 foot pop top Jayco. Will report. The A-van dealer was hopelessly unhelpful so went Jayco. Sorry. I meant she was a miserable cow.


replacing the battery

published

Great van. Only issue after 1 month with our 2nd hand cruiseline is the deep cell battery went flat. Awful smell, not the fault of the van. The issue we have is trying to get the battery out from the back corner under the bed! How? Any suggestions?

Problem solved. Undo the gas struts that lift the bed. Lift the bed higher and prop it up.


ok but not suited to my life style.

published

liked it for its light weight and easy to tow with my 2010 mazda bt 50 very easy to put up and down .it did not like rough roads or dusty roads and the seal on the door kept coming unstuck .the fridge and microwave do not work anymore and the replacement cost was expensive.Had a blow out which ripped off mud guard ,stability of van was excellent after blow out.sold van for good price.I plan to buy off road version.

Hi I bought a cargo door 900mm x 305mm $ 130.44, when I picked it up, I was told that the two keys were extra, they didn't say anything when I told them that it showed the lock plus two keys, so I had to fork out another, $ 57.00, I'm not very happy with them, has this happened to anyone else.

That just seems downright mean. It wouldn't give confidence in a company's ethics and penny pinching. I would have thought keys were an essential part of the package.

Hi Frank, You don't buy those access doors from an avan dealer you buy them from coast to coast rv services, I buy them from there all the time and fit plenty of them to avans and the keys come standard with them.

We bought a used Avan Cruisliner, it is not so easy to put up, its a little stiff. I think it was well used by previous owner, is there anything we can do to make it glide up easier. We have only put it up once, could be our inexperience.

Hi Janet,
You kind of get used to pushing it up with a little effort. I find it difficult as it is heavy.
Some people use a broom handle or such to push it up.
Not sure I can really help with this one.
Do you have an air conditioner?

Janet
Janet

Thank you, yes I think we need to use it a bit more. Her more practice. No air con tho.

The roof can be a bit heavy but is do-able for a lanky guy like me.
Perhaps you could use a small set of steps to help you get the extra elevation.

Don't let it put you off.
It's worth all the extra effort.

You should have ithe roof and sides erected in 3 minutes flat.
