great for camping

published

This is my third caravan and by far the best one I've ever bought for camping. You feel safe inside from the elements and it really holds up in tough terrain and harsh weather. Its easy to clean with a pressure washer and its easy to tow and transport.

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.

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.

Savannah

has anyone had issues with the main window in the Golf Savannah 390 being stuck and unable to close? We have had it back to the dealer x 2 with this issue as the screw broke off the first time and the other half of the screw was lodged however they drilled it out and fixed the issue. But again the window is stuck open and we cant even close it to be able to drive it back to the dealer AGAIN

Does anyone own a Savannah 499 and can advise me about the comfort of having 4 adults seated in cafe dining. Do legs touch or is there plenty of room? Are the seats comfortable or very rigid/vertical
