Suits us perfectly.
Will start with the negatives..2 years old and hardly used : even though "off road" after a few 100 ks of dirt found the inside cupboards jiggled loose and stayed that way and a drawer broke its runner. TV broke apart. Water outlet valve leaked. All window screws became loose and a couple fell out.
The positives.... Ecotourer makers Caravan Court in Melb., have changed the newer models to have better door closures and a different style of TV. They also , very obligingly subsidized the repairs to the above problems. We still think, having look...
Best 2 person van available.
What a bunch of wingers! We had a 2006 black top shower and toilet EcoTourer. Great van, towed well up to 110 kph behind a Toyota Hi Lux. Travelled across most of Oz but stayed on sealed roads, absolutely no trouble at all. A very comfortable easy to use van, good layout with reasonable size double bed, shower and toilet. Layout of sink, gas top and fridge works well with sufficient storage for the necessary food, wine cloths etc. Many people appear to take far too much with them, remember there are shops around the country other than the one ...where you usually buy your groceries. We recently upgraded to the Off Road version incorporating the various improvements the manufacturer has made, independent suspension, outside shower, aircon located under bed, LED lights, etc,etc. We tow it with a Benz GLE350d and it is fantastic. We are no longer restricted to sealed roads and recently travelled to Tibooburra, Cameron Corner, Innamincka etc without any difficulty or problem. Nothing broke, nothing fell off, no dust in van or car. In addition to manufacturer's fitted stone shield, we fitted a Stone Stomper Stone Guard which totally protected car and van, great product. The current Off Road EcoTourer are great, worth every penny of its very competitive price. we added a second solar panel and battery and can remain on the road till the essentials run low.
Very happy customer
For this person who gives one star, he might be rough with his van, we have the off road for 4 years, nothing fell off, as we put a magnet on every door so it can't open without loking it...its a super van on every level, only the owning is very flimbsi...we travels australia 3 times and still love the van...
Love the layout
The shape was what caught our eye. Tows effortlessly. Have to check the mirror to make sure it is still their. We have single beds and find this layout gives more internal room. Had a nearside tyre let go at 90kph and the van just dipped but stayed straight whilst we pulled over and put the spare on. Our thanks to Myrtleford tyre and battery service for the prompt replacement on a Friday arvo. Would love to have a folding door with fly screen and better lock.
Excellent customer service from Caravan Court Springvale. Extra effort made to get us our van on time. Extras supplied at fair price. Excellent after sales service, after the first around Australia tour, a couple of small detail problems and some damage due to a small accident we had and the full service was completed for us for what I felt was a very reasonable service charge, I was thrilled, had payed more for service of our previous van. Returning now from our second around Australia tour in our Eco Tourer, slipstream, off highway, caravan..., still thrilled with it and it is as new condition. I travel blog, talk about out great eco-tourer and show pictures of it on http://www.gray-nomad.com I can only tell by looking in the mirror that I am towing a van. Excellence of design inside, outside, strength and suspension are excellent. I mounted the wall mounted wardrobe on the floor making more bench space,easily done and I prefer the more open look of the van without the wardrobe on the wall.
We've owned our van for 18 months and tow it with an '05 Kia Sorrento. We've travelled in the highlands of Tassie, gone to Kangaroo Island, had a trip to Innaminka via Bourke and Tiboorburra and have just returned from another trip, 22,000kms. all over WA. We have deliberately chosen the roughest roads as we don't like the boring bitumen. Our van has taken to the dirt like a duck to water - and it literally loved the river and creek crossings on the Gibb River Road!!
