  510 Standard Single or Double Beds

10+ years on & still enjoying an Eco Tourer

Generous and clever interior design - can’t fault it. Super easy to manage, live in (incl 1 full year on a lap) and to tow (Falcon ute). No issues of a mechanical nature in a decade and around 75km+ of towing on road. As reported elsewhere (1) virtually all the interior laminates variously came loose after 7-8 years, but using a clear sealant reaffixes ok, and (2) still no design for a fly screen door (why not FFS?). VG van - recommended. Show details

  510 Off-Road Shower & Toilet

Everything we need for 2 person caravanning

We purchased a 10 year old off road Eco Tourer model with shower and toilet. Very happy with it. It tows easily behind the Hi Lux and is not too big to reverse park (although my wife acts as spotter!). We had a diesel heater fitted and it warms up in 5 minutes. The awning is easy to set up and the bed is comfortable. The shower and toilet are very useful if you don't fancy trudging to the toilet block and are easy to use. Gas cooking, 3 way fridge and a couple of big batteries make it easy to camp free. Bought a generator but have not needed it yet - looking at solar blanket as another option when in caravan parks. Our first experience of caravanning and very pleased with the van! Show details

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.

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.

Good

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.

Excellent

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.

Features:

The Ecotourer 510 Range includes the 510 Standard, the 510 Hybrid, and the 510 Off Road. These are the features across the range:

  • The Ecotourer 510 caravans have a folding drawbar that fit easily into regular-sized garages - with the drawbar folded up, the 510 Standard measures in at 5.6m in length while the Hybrid and Off Road models are 5.75m long.
  • Aerodynamic towing, with a wide track axle allowing for greater stability and weight distribution and a low profile that makes for fuel efficient towing, is also featured in these models.
  • They feature a quick set up and pack down, thanks to fully insulated, solid walls with no fiddly canvas screens that need to be dealt with.
  • A spacious interior and luxurious fitout - including ample head height, large windows, and 360° rotating ceiling mounted TV - help keep you comfortable and relaxed.
  • All models allow you to comfortably relax outside: they come with a windout Fiamma awning, and you also have the option to include a drop down picnic table, an outdoor shower, and awning walls.
