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.
Was just about to buy one until I read the reviews
I’ve been looking for the right light smallish semi off-road affordable caravan with an en-suite.
Thought I’d found it in the Avan Jensen, a great looking van with a great layout and a great price, until I read the Avan reviews....
Unfortunatley been down the track before with other caravan manufacturers and their so called warranties, I’ve had the water leaks, rediculously bad wiring, aircond not bolted down and nearly falling off etc, not to mention incorrect Tare weights (your over Weight before you put anything in it) etc. The indus...try needs a big shake up, thought it would have come with all the competition out there but it seems the are all racing to the bottom rather than the top, it’s hard to work out who’s actually building a decent van at a reasonable price. You would think in this day and age of the internet and reviews manufacturers would get their act together. Thanks to the reviews you’ve cost this manufacturer a sale!
not happy with van
We purchased an Avan from the Port Macquarie Caravan and Camping Show, we have had various problems, windows not closing, air conditioner noisy, doors not fitting, and screen around microwave has broken in half, door to bathroom was not fitted at all, ensuite cupboards were not aligned, the upholstery had to be resewn by us as it was coming apart at the seam, also leaking water tank. Some of these things were fixed by the Avan site, but it is an hour drive there and back as well as fuel, none of which has been reimbursed to us. So all in all ...poor quality , looks good , and bed is comfortable , stove ok, but we are waiting for the next thing to break down, and also have sent an email to their H/O but of course no reply. Will not buy another van from this company...... We found the Avan dealer good and they were prepared to fix all these things, but as with purchasing a new car there should not be any of these issues. July 23rd 2018 Update: a mistake in buying this Van once again we have had to take the Van back as the Brake away brake battery was not being charged by the Van charger, also the Van battery has to be replaced. This is the 4th time we have had to take this Van back to the dealer at around 100 ks each way makes for an expensive exercise. The dealer has been co operative but bad choice of caravan , wish we had never brought this brand, never again. November 6th 2018 Update: Faulty front entry door The door simply fell off the hinges during our last trip, it opens half way like a stable door, however the top half fell off. Would be a good idea if the screws were checked before every trip, as one screw had fallen out and is lost and you can only tighten them up with an Allen Key. Stupid design !!!!!
