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.

does anyone have a Jensen 2017 A Van ? If so are they having any problems with it.

Best Family Van on the Market

published

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.

poor quality

published

Quality control non existant. Numerous problems. Although manufacturer still agreed to warranty work when van 3 years old 3 years of continuing problems forced me to sell van at big loss. As I spoke to fellow travellers it seems any Avan owner experienced simmilar problems. Last owner i spoke to had van only six months old and had it for sale due to problems with van and dealer. The van towed well, looked good but if only Avan built vans to the quality the manufacturer beliefs they are.

Bad Mistake

published

De-laminating inside next to fridge. Had to replace all drawer runners. Emptying sink fills shower recess. Vanity came adrift. Edging came off locker doors and cupboard doors. Pressure reducing valve froze. Cupboard door push locks were ALL replaced. NO local dealer in WA, so have to rely on Melbourne. That's a whole other story.

The OWEN HT 4yrs On

published

Few initial problems. Wiring on fridge faulty. Water connection to rear of Toilet faulty. When town water connected fitting come adrift. Van floor covered in water. When sink is drained of water the toilet floor is covered with sink water. I have fixed these problems with a few minor adjustments. Workmanship is not up to scratch.

great van but!!!!

published

bought a new Owen late December. In the shake down electric hot water doesn't work, struts on bed fell off and draw slides all came away. The van tows well and is well laid out just a shame the lack of attention to detail and poor workmanship lets it down badly. For the sake of a few more screws and some liquid nails and a quality control department these vans would be exceptional value. Off to Bunnings to buy a range of screws, battery drill and several tubes of liquid nails.

Good van. !&#@! service

published

Ordered Oct 2013. Deposit paid. Contract delivery time, April May 2014. Rang and enquired about delivery. Told June. Rang again, told July. Rang again, told August. Eventually they rang (First time) an we picked it up late August. Only excuse was supply problems. Overall van is very good. I have fixed all the warranty jobs myself as I never want to see them or listen to their lies again. Air conditioner sounds like a jumbo landing on the roof.

Lack of bench space for preparing food is another problem we have found. Skylight needs tinting to stop heat and too bright sunlight coming in. . Blinds very flimsy. Shower compartment could be a little wider.. say 150 mil

We have the Charlotte, same deal, boot leaks!!

And you're still happy with it even having to do all those mods ! I would have thought the majority of them are simply due to poor design
