Living up to expectations

After much research - we decided to purchase a second hand Eco Tourer with shower / toilet - could not be happier with the way it tows the layout and the ease of setup. Picked up in Melbourne in winter - -3 outside inside is cosy with the reverse cycle A/C , Cupboards for everything inside , moulded along the roofline - much the same as in a boat, the finish is much the same as a boat and very easy to clean.

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

published

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.

Designer has provided excellent unit for consumer who wants sleek, compact, easy to tow, tastefully appointed van with all mod cons such as shower/toilet, Tv, air con etc , yet folds down to aerodynamic shape to tow.
Fibreglass construction - clean & strong. Telescopic mechanism, rather than conventional poptop. Ingenious layout. Fold-up towbar for easier storage.
Lack of additional step for off-highway version. Could easily install mirror on inside cupboard door. Why not provide for conversion of dinette into bed? Door catches need additional magnets. Ride leveller should be provided.

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!!
email me on tassyterry@yahoo.com if you want to know more!
Love the elegance! and the simplicity -stylish! Love the ease of towing -and ease of living in it. Love it's strength and durability. Love the minimal effort needed to keep it cleaned whilst on the road.

Questions & Answers

Hi are there any problems with the roof lifting mechanism and if so is it expensive to fix?

2 answers

Hello O.H.
I don't know if this is of any help but I will relate our experience.
Within the warranty period something got stuck and Ecotourer happily paid for the fixing. We manually wind ours so are very attuned to the "feel". What we notice is a gradual stiffening , eased a bit by frequent use when travelling, but gets a bit stiff at home. We regularly lubricate as advised but this doesn't make a huge difference. So, all in all...I would say the winding mechanism has got gradually stiffer with little option to make it easier. I would think using the power drill to lift would not only disguise the stiffness but, no doubt, make it easier.

Hi - Bought ours second hand - It's done the Lap - Hand it now for 2 years , no problem with the winding mechanism - use a electric drill - makes life very easy - the design seems very robust - I have only heard of 3 that have had problems - which were fixed by Caravan Court or by the owners

Hi - i'm not sure on the weight capacity of the lift unit - I know some have solar panels mounted - Best bet would be to contact the manufacturer - Caravan Court - Melbourne - http://www.caravans.com.au/

Hi Dorothy - as far as i know you will need to fir one yourself - the Yahoo group page has photos of the different ways people have gone about this - from what i have seen the best option is an access hatch inserted to the lower half of the door with a security screen insert on the inside - i am currently using a magnetic screen that can be trimmed to size - about $20 from bunnings ect but it is not a security screen
