Everything we need for 2 person caravanning

published

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!

Purchased in March 2019.

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.

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.

We have bought but not taken delivery, yet. Looking forward to the experience of towing with ease and setting up in very short time. Plus the fact it will FIT in the garage.... this has solved a lot of problems for me.
We like the clean flowing shape inside and out. Easy to fold up and down. Lots of storage space. Extremely well thought out design. Galvanised chasis. Very well built - attention to detail is great. Will fit in our garage!!! Looked at Coromel, Windsor, Jayco.
nothing, really.

510 Standard Single or Double Beds

We have a 2007 EcoTourer with a double bed and standard features (no en suite fitted). We are considering to purchase a 2013 Hyundai SanteFe Hylander automatic fitted with heavy duty rear springs, will this be legal to tow this van.

They have a reported tow ability of 2000 KG braked - do you know what the GCM (Not GVM) for the vehicle is - that will indicated whether it is legal.

I am unable to locate a GCM figure anywhere on the vehicle. Any suggestions? The vehicle has been fitted with a genuine Hyundai tow pack upgrade which has a 150kg maximum download stamped on the ID plate. The engine is R 2.2 CRDi (Diesel).

After reading another article I have found the following information
Hyundai Santa Fe
Payload: 433kg (Scenario 1)
Vehicle mass: 2428kg (202kg less than GVM)
Vehicle and (maximum weight) trailer combined mass: 4278kg (352kg less than GCM)

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

Faster the better

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/

What can happen if you over wind the roof mechanism. How difficult is it to fix if it happens
