Light to tow
Great design. Love the bath room but some cheap fittings let it down, roof lockdowns plated only and rust quickly. Large window fly screen comes out in the breese allowing insects in. The lower wardrobe twisted so the door doesn't fit properly. The cupboard doors are only printed paper and would be better if laminated as they scratch easily. Other than that we are very happy with the van. Excellent service from A Van Loganholme Qld.
Great general purpose van
Really happy with the comfort and finish. Bought new in 2006 and tows easily behind our dual fuel Falcon wagon. The combination works so well that we found another low mileage wagon once the first one wore out. A/con is very useful and solar with the battery work really well. Only issue has been the gas regulator which we had replaced twice, once on warranty. Would like a bigger fridge, but get round that with a cooler in the car.
only problem was the Screens
and also we replaced the cafe lounge and table. with fold away table and 2 chairs.I also put a door on the outside under the bed so we keep our table and chairs etc easy to get to instead of lifting the bed. now if i could change the door with security screen door and door it would be perfect, we have had this van for 10yrs and traveled around Oz a couple of times. love how easy it is to tow . i just love my van,
We have A'van Leah MK11 bought in 2006
Love the van but not the door design or blinds & insect screens, they allow the insects to crawl in. would love to replace the door with one that you have security screens and the solid door like a lot of other brands and also like to replace the window screens & blinds, other then that it has been a good van
Questions & Answers
What should I sell my 2001 Avan Poptop for ? I need some sort of a guide.
You might get $11,000. If your lucky. we sold our 2006 Leah ,Mark11 for $11,500. It was in A1condition and always garaged. I was a bit sorry to see it go. but husband was ill. So we sold and bought a motor home. Not as much room in it, but easy for me to drive
Just wondering if anyone knows if a 2013 Nissan Altima could tow a:
2003 Avan erin 17 ft ?
Do you think a Volkswagon Transporter Auto Campervan would tow a Avan Jack tare 1630 kg ATM 2030kg ,saw a nice van but hubby wont part with his VW !
Depends on which model Transporter. The later ones have 128 kw and 400nm of power with 2500kg tow capacity with brakes on the caravan, so would easily tow the Avan Jack, which is similar to the Tayla which we have. The earlier ones had a much lower output engine, so would struggle to keep up a decent road speed. We tow with a Ford Falcon Wagon which has engine output of 190kw and 385nm torque and tows the Avan really well. Hope that helps
