Well equipped for a great adventure

published

We loved this van which was a great home on our big adventure. Big tanks for water and solar gave us freedom to get away from the crowds and stay in some remote places. The outdoor kitchen gave us extra space for food prep and we used it as much as weather permitted. We didn’t do a lot of off-road but it handled well when we did. The dealer however was almost completely hopeless and in the end we ended up resolving any issues ourselves.

If you want a Golf, buy a pre 2009 model.

published

If you want a Golf caravan, buy a pre 2009 model when they were built at Lawnton Brisbane. These were the original Golf caravans known for their high quality build. We have owned our 2009 Golf Savannah GTS for 9 years. From the day we left the dealer ( Takalvans Bundaberg ) nothing has ever gone wrong with it. The appearance of the van can still be considered as new. We still get comments from other travellers who can’t believe the caravan is nine years old. It tows smoothly and quietly behind our Pajero and even in the strongest winds shows no tendency to sway or exhibit any other undesirable towing irregularities. WE LOVE IT!

We must be the unlucky ones- 3 days into the second trip, on a sealed road with everything in place, the hourglass from the external door has disintegrated. Avan tells us it is a Dometic warranty issue. We wait. Stay tuned.

Just purchased a golf maxxi 501 from bomaderry avan and the service from start to finish was outstanding. Dealer advice and personnel at the dealership could not be faulted. Product is excellent

the original isherman golfs are an engineering work of art

published

my 2005 isherman golf has given me 10yrs of trouble free caravaning. the coil sprung suspension with shocks and alloy frame with fibreglass [hail proof] cladding placed this van at the pinnacle of australian van manufacturing.if you are looking at buying a wood framed metal clad van beware. a good quality used van is a wiser buy than a new glitterbox . spend the money you save on traveling costs.

Ongoing issues difficult to resolve

The best experience

published

Have owned a 2006 Savannah Deluxe in turquoise/white for 3 years. We added a bike rack and can store our petrol generator in the front boot. Loads of cupboard space and excellent finish on everything. Sleeps three (queen + single bed) with room for two more if you want to dismantle the table. It is everything we needed and couldn't be happier. We will be reluctantly selling after traveling to purchase a home. Recommend Golf - tow beautifully and very comfortable.

Wonderful van!

published

Have owned a 2006 GTS in Mango/Cream for more than 4 years and over 50,000km's. We've added an extra solar panel, water tank and diesel heater to bolster our free-camping performance (which is now up to a week) and could not be happier. Have towed behind a Falcon wagon and also Pajero with excellent results. Woe that these superbly manufactured vans are now no longer made ..... we would only sell this van to buy another golf.
Our ensuite, great bed and layout generally
Would have liked a cover for the front window !!

Questions & Answers

Amanda D.asked

Has anyone had any issues with the fridge running on 12 volt
We are looking at savanna 531 and only Bush camp so no access to 240v
Looking to get extra battery and 2 nd solar panel to cope ,any info would be appreciated

2 answers

Hi Amanda we have a savannah 637 . Just remember that three way fridges are not that efficient on 12 volt . This function is best used to hold temperature while traveling. We have found that ours works best on gas when free camping.

Hi Amanda totally agree with last response 12volt to travel. We have a 499 and if "off the grid" gas is best, it's excellent.
