Disgraceful

published

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.

Purchased in November 2019.

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

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!

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Terry

How do you stop the top roof domes from coming open during travel? There is no locking mechanism on the inside, just the winder.

Sorry to hear about it, but it was the cheapest way they built the van in the cheapest possible way same with the suspension it's lousy if you want to go off road a little bit but for the rip I suggest put some the elastic banned around the winding knob to stop it from unwinding itself it could help when you shut it put elastic band closest to the base of the winder and that should help as it rattles loose on travel and slowly opens other than that you need to put latches on the outside off the Dome but you need somebody to do that.

Hi Tina, that is a simple one to fix. the reason why they come open is the spline on the butterfly handle is stripped, when you wined down the roof vents you will notice that the butterfly handle keeps turning when they are down instead of stopping and locking. the reason why the spline strips on the butterfly handle is when you don't open them for a while the roof vent lid sticks to the black rubber and if you keep trying to put pressure on the butterfly handle it strips, you should always open those roof vent lids when the van is down when they have been closed for a long period. not hard to do. they are only about $6 each.

Hi Julie, that's an easy fix just use a small door stopper jam it in between the handle and the side of the dome base then the handle won't come down when your travelling along. regards brett.
