FINAL UPDATE... ON THE CRUISERLINER 5...FOND FAREWELL....2017
We have just sold our Cruiseliner 5 and she has gone back to Queensland quite near to the original owner!
The new folks purchased her with all the added must have, thousands of $$$ worth of extras. They have called to see us on their way home from Adelaide, still learning the how too's but happy with their purchase!
We have moved up to a 5th wheeler we had built in Wales & shipped to Australia ~ yes we love it but we still have fond memories of our little Noddy van & would never choose to miss that experience with our Cruiseliner, it's where ...
Questions & Answers
We just purchased a cruise liner with an adventure plus pack 2017 model its air conditioned but we found that it does not perform anywhere near what it's supposed to has anyone else had the same problem?
Just sent you a message. We got our cruiseliner last July and heating kind of worked but nothing special. Same now in summer it was minimally effective. I’m not sure they’re capable of anything better. Just had to cuddle up to a vent to get relief. We kept trying to change the setting but couldn’t get a whole lot out of it. Probably could say it took the edge off I guess.
We have a 2017 Adventure Plus and the air con works OK. Probably works better than our previous Jayco 2011 PopTop. During the summer when hubby was cleaning up the van after a trip (35 degrees). He said when going in you could definitely feel it was working and held its own. Will never be as good as a home air conditioner. This would have been on 240v so not sure if it is as effective if running solely off the battery. Get it checked out at the dealer!!!!
I have just purchased a new cruiseliner. The manual says that when storing for long periods you should jack it up to take the weight off the tyres. Where do you position the jack to do this?
A bit to the REAR of the wheels you should see a strengthening brace running across the chassis, next to this join at the chassis you should have a small welded plate and this is the place for your jack ( right alongside where the brace meets the chassis )
I am really interested in buying a new cruiseliner but the garage length is about 100mm too long is there any chance that the length can be modifiedduring the build stage?
Presume you are thinking of getting the model with the front boot. If you don't get the boot you'd probably be ok. We had the same problem (re garage fit) and decided to forgo the boot; working on the premise that the more space you have the more you will take. Having had an A'liner for 17 years ( since new) we knew we could easily cope without the boot in the new one. Good luck with your decision.
In answer to my own query, after thinking about it, I could probably take the spare wheel off when garaging and that would give me the extra space I need.
Thanks for your input Wonnie80 but I really want the boot model (Cruiseliner). Out of interest, does the Cruiser have any sort of boot at all, i.e. somewhere to store hoses etc?
By the way your long association with these vans is very encouraging.
