Delivery quality and warranty poor

Following the caravan being given to Geelong Caravans for rectification of the grey water shower problem.
Even though we provided what would have been a quick repair. It took a further 6 months as a result of many errors by the engineering staff of Geelong Caravans before the caravan was returned to us. Geelong Caravans made us sign a document accepting responsibility for the work carried. We have since been away in the caravan and everything was ok. PLUMBING CONFIGURATION WORKED AS IT WAS EXPECTED TO WHEN PURCHASED. Many thanks to Kat.
I only hope all future Avans are supplied to what the customer expected.

Perfect little modern style caravan

Compact but has everything you need. Light and easy to park. Stylish and comfortable. I love the inner spring mattress and modern accessories. Cool in summer and warm in winter. Show details

Pity no one to service it in WA

Eventually sold mine in frustration. Premier Avan service in WA is not worth a mention. Had van out nine times in total for warranty work, fixed last problem myself and sold van. Now have a Kokoda and happy as. Show details

Fantastic van,fantastic team at Adelaide Avan

Huge shout out to the fantastic team at Avan Windsor Gardens , the friendly Tammy and super salesman Craig, but in particular the fabulous Jan, who we were fortunate enough to meet at the recent caravan show in Adelaide.She was warm ,friendly and very knowledgeable . We were after a modified version of the 555 ,and Avan Adelaide accommodated us perfectly. We’ve only recently taken possession of our modified rig, and could not be happier. Towing is a breeze,the quality and workmanship is very good . We’re about to put it through it’s paces through the next few months ,and will update this review afterwards. Show details

Fantastic van for its size

We purchased our Avan 555 Feb 2018 and it hasn’t missed a beat. The en-suite is spacious, the island bed is fantastic and so much storage room. I particularly love the wardrobes on both sides of the bed. We have completed a red centre trip and now on a six month trip up to top end and eventually across to Perth and down to Adelaide before heading back home to Qld. We do plenty of free camping so the 18o litre water tanks are great. We have solar and a diesel heater and a 180 litre fridge freezer. Good quality throughout this is our third Avan and the quality versus cost is excellent. The dining seats are comfortable and roomy as we have a cafe lounge set up and the table also folds back. Show details

Our 555 van has a gray water indicator. How does the gray water system work if it is fitted

The wheel tub on my single axle espire555 got damaged. Where could I get a new one? Avan spare parts are not very helpful.
