the caravan of convience
quality exellent,very reliable,kitchen,shower toilet sleeping accomadation very comfortable towing easy even at high speed off road exellent you would not know you are towing a van,easy set up would recomend this van to every body doing long tours of australia
we love the compact size, a place for everything so it's at hand quickly and without fuss. No flapping or wet canvas to sleep in or pack up if it's raining. Very quiet inside, comfortable bed with really good under bed storage and even room for my wine cellar (one of our modifications!!). It's also easy to keep clean and when it's folded down and in storage and you then open it up there is no musty smell as it's air tight. Each cabinet is a cabinet so what you put in stays in. The cabinet at the back of the bed is one long one across the w...idth of the van and is probably designed for clothing, we've not used it much as we've not done more than weekend trips and the wardrobe has been more than enough for these outings. Shoes and any bulky item fit comfortably under the bed so you're not tripping over anything and the bed is spring loaded so lifts and lowers very easily. Having a separate vanity is also handy and not to mention higenic, no washing teeth and face in sink you wash dishes in - that could just be a 'girl-thing'!! The ensuite is cosy and compact but I love it, the toilet is a cassette and very easy to use and clean out. compact, easy to store and easy to tow and park. Sets up quickly, very quiet inside, beautiful finish in the fixtures and fittings - quality shows. Great way to meet people when you arrive anywhere. One thing we discovered, there was no gauze over the vent in the shower cubicle and sharing with bees if you park under a tree (yep - happened on our first outing!!) was not fun - so I made a gauze covering and used stick-on velco - works like a dream. This is the advantage of having the fibreglass surfaces inside and out. Would also be handy to have a water gauge fitted on the water tanks so that you knew when to fill up. Also no gauze/screen door due to the need to have the door fold, however we again used velco and fitted a cafe style gauze streamer band which works well, lets a breeze in without the flies.

Hi John, also tow with a Triton dual cab - no problems with towing - smooth as - have the off road - Shower Toilet- purchased second hand - the only problem we have had is some of the adhesive on the laminate drying out and needing to be reglued , not a biggie - just with dual cab utes - don't overload the tray or the van, the chassis will fail regardless of brand.
