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

Try EBay and ask for best offer considering it is 19 years old.

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

Thanks for that, its a 2003 VW Campervan with a 2.5 Diesel Turbo ,think that would do the job ?

Pop Top 499 Oscar

Looking at purchasing Avan Oscar ll 2005, but around the roof it looks like paint/vinyl wrap is breaking away. Anyone know what could be the cause.

I would contact the nearest Avan distributor and ask if common problem and what it to cost of repair.
When negotiating price with the seller, have the repair cost discounted. This way you will be confident of no further problems after dealer repair. The Avan Oscar looks like a nice van.
We have had 4 previous vans and presently own a Avan Frances pop top, being very happy with it and the service provided by Avan.
Happy caravaning... Binny.

Hello All,
I am looking at purchasing the 2008 The Tayla MKII model with dual axles. Some listings with different lengths (some indicating 16ft and 18f on same model). They look the same from the photos.

no everything should be fine. the only thing I don't like about mine is the screens, but they are nearly all like that now. we have put our Avan Mark 11 Leah on the market it's been a great van, have changed a few things put a extra door on the outside under the single bed. also took out the table and chairs and put in a office chair and fold away table. gave us a heap more room . only reason we are selling is husband had back operation, so we are going to buy a small motor home. but enjoy you travels

Do not buy an Avan!! These vans are poorly built, there is no quality control, & no customer service after you buy one. We have just purchased a new Avan & wouldn't recommend them at all. We have a very long list of faults & the company haven't even answered our letter with our concerns listed.

I agree with you Kate.I HAD a Aspire 525 P/T and did have problems with both the dealer in Penrith and A Van them selves.I wrote to A Van in Melb and got a reply from the dealer principal here in NSW with the following reply........QUOTE. If you have a GENUINE Then please contact me which i did and to date had no reply.

To their credit i rang A Van in Adelaide and they sorted my problem out in regards to a couple of issues in had over the phone Whilst in QLD.

I no longer have the Aspire now and have moved on to a bigger van.Funny thing tho was where we traded(Nov2016) the Aspire in the sales person asked me if any probs with the van and how did i find the service from A Van.Turns out this sales person worked for a A Van dealer ship before moving on.

As I said before had a mark 11 .for 11yrs travelled around Australia and down the center. Plus a lot of other trips up and down NSW. And Qld. Loved it no worries except the blinds, letting in small insects. But most vans are like it now
