Great van but it’s the little things that end up major

2018 Avan cruiser liner adventure pack.
1. Wheel came off when travelling 100kmph van had done less then 2000km I needed to replace axle hubs bearings$$
2. Locking on walls is terrible
3. Trailer brake attachment rattled off whilst driving cable dragging for a long time.
4. Pad on stabalizer broke .
5. Dome windows rattles open . Then front one broke.

The concept of the Avan is good but I am not convinced the quality of the build is from my experience with mine. And parts are expensive and customer service is terrible. Looking at selling mine and trying something else Show details

Smelly battery

We had the problem of the smelly battery, woke one morning and the van was filled with acrid fumes, found the battery under the bed almost melted and sizzling.
Contacted a battery specialist who said it was illegal to put lead acid batteries in an enclosed area, and recommended a AGM battery which we fitted ( very heavy).
No problems since, A-Van denied any liability and refused to re-emburse us for their not fit for use battery, have informed every A-Vanner we see as it could be a life saver.

Disgraceful

We bought a brand new A-Van Cruiseliner Adventure Plus.
Within days the door handle fell off in our hands. It is secured by very short screws.
A curtain fastener fell off
A screw to hold the gas pipe up underneath the van was missing.
The two vents were warped. From the reviews I see A-van have known about this for years but continue to sell an inferior product.
The Finch HB9000 underbunk air conditioner barely works. It cools the van by one degree. They have known about this issue for at least two years and yet continue to promote a van with air conditioning knowing full well it doesn't work in a Cruiseliner.
A-van keep referring back to the retailer. The retailer keeps referring back to A-van.
It is not integral. Show details

Some of the screws holding the bubble window on have now fallen off and we have still barely used the van

Van for a quick escape

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!

About the air conditioning and a line cruise liner

Shoddy finish

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.

After Sales Service Lacking

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
