Loving it

published

We bought a 2nd hand year old AVan Jensen 2017 model and love it. Great layout.
All caravans need maintenance along the way but our is minimal compared to the European Adria we had previously.

Bad design of flyscreens

published

Our van took in loads of dust over a couple of days.
My husband did manage to seal the spots where the dust was coming in and it has been fine.
The flyscreens for the windows and door are absolutely useless, at the first hint of even a gentle breeze they blow out and are of no use.
This is my main gripe, they are so badly designed.
Another issue is the pilot light of the fridge goes out with wind.poorly designed in my opinion
It is easy to tow and otherwise comfortable.
It was bought as a second hand van, the van itself was made in 2011

Purchased in July 2017.

Best Family Van on the Market

The build quality of my Avan Aspire 617 is perfect. It is fantastic having a seperate shower and toilet with a triple bunk in a 19ft van that has an ATM of under 2.5t. The WA dealer (Premier Avan) are fantastic, they are friendly, always willing to help and gave a through handover of the van on collection.

Best caravan we've had to date.

Poor workmanship

published

Bought this van as we thought it was value for money. Comfortable and easy to tow. TV antenna was incorrectly fitted to the booster, no reception, electrician found three different wires joined and replaced with one. Water pressure poor. Blew the hot water cylinder, what a job to remove and replace, van was built around it. Water coming up in shower was fixed by replacing outlet with a bigger pipe. Toilet pipe also came off and flooded the van. Fly screens hard to clean and now windows take a bit to keep open. Removed awning as was too flimsy to carry the weight of an annexe, but apart from no help from the manufacturers, we still love our van.

Load capacity

published

Happy with van and layout and all small problems fixed by either dealer or product warranty. Our main problem is weight as atm is well over stated limit.
We purchased van from stock at penrith it has oven air con and awning fitted presumably at factory which I would hope is include in tare.
We have 2 water tanks and coupled with the hot water this gives 200 litres so 200 kg this leaves only 100 kg for every thing else if as stated the air etc is included in tare
Has anyone up dated chassis etc to accomodate greater load capacity .axle rating is 1600 kg

Hi everyone. Just noticed blisters in the paint along the rear outside corner toilet side of our 2014 Frances. Anyone have anything similar? Will try get it to Avan for a look but can't seem to find anything online. Looks like water must be getting into back corner causing electrolysis?
Cheers Derek
