Grand Cruiser 1750

published

Tows well and handles dirt roads without any problems. The fiberglass construction keeps the van at a perfect temperature in all conditions. The TV and DVD/ stereo come in handy on rainy days. Just completed a tour of Tasmania followed by the Kimberleys an all WA. We had no problems and all internal appliance's worked well. Small outside but internal space allows comfortable travel.

Purchased for $40,000.00.

Solid Great Performer

published

We brought this 05 van in start of 06. It has not to date had any faults and its now 2017. The front lounge is massive, good size kitchen, queen bed, rear ensuite makes it a very enjoyable van to travel. The composite panels are very soundproof with the domestic double glaze windows. Plenty of cupboards, led lighting , and aerodynic shape. Highly recommend.

Got another major woops!!

Tyres due for rotation approx 10,000 ks. Front lh side didn't make it. Wore very uneven. Took it off, checked to see if bearings were ok. Hmm a bit of movement. Took off dust cap only to find no split pin in castle nut. Quality workmanship. All others ok. Could have been a disaster. Do not trust anybody. Check everything yourself.

Recently picked up our triple bunk Grandcruiser 1750 x-trax offroad caravan.
Just back from a trip up to cairns and return and the only problem has been one internal led light has failed which Dave has said will be replaced. No fuss at all.
Fit and finish is spot on and can't believe how easy it is to tow compared to my old van even though the 1750 is slightly longer and 200kg heavier. I'm averaging 2lts per hundred better fuel economy.
We've had some great feedback on the sleek lines and look of the van.
Just need more time now to use it.
Happy camper.

Grand cruising in a Grandcruiser

published

We purchased our 2nd Grandcruiser from Dave last Nov (2014) having had our first one for 6 years.We are now 10,000 klm into a round Australia trip with the new one ( a 2150 Grandcruiser Platinum) and loving it. We had it custom built with a slideout bedroom and the additional room and cpd space has been excellent. The finish on this van is first class and we would not hesitate to recommend Grandcruiser to prospective customers.

picked up demo model GC2150 November 2014 and cant be happier with the van and the service received from the GC team at Belmont. Had some minor modifications and fixes that were never a problem to Walter and the team to address to fit our requirements. We have towed to Wagga and back and planning a lot more trips to come. Isuzu DMAX pulls this van effortlessly and the McHitch makes it even easier. I cant praise Walter at GC enough for the support and assistance he has provided us novices. Post sales support exceptional

Purchased a GC 24ft. in 2010. In that time have travelled through out Queensland, three return trips to South Australia and along the Murray river. In that time I have had no mechanical problem with the van, any problems I have had were fixed with a screw driver. The van tows exceptional behind my Nissan Navara and comfort is to kill for. Stands out well at the van parks and along the highway. Can't really fault it.
Easy towing,comfort. everything you want when on the road.
Better locking set up on shower door. no handles on cubboard doors.

6mths old 1st trip wheel fell off in nth Qld. Cost & repair authorised by Grandcruiser resulting in new axle,brake system,hubs,& fractured wheel bearings all replaced & with heavy duty grease.Wrong grease had been used. We had to pay up front & send the invoice to G'cruiser.. Over 6mths later & several phone calls later the owner has finally told us we aren't going to get our xxxx money. We cannot deal with this man again and we have since found his P.R skills are doing the rounds.
Layout was very comfortable
Owner shouldn't be dealing up front ...He should hide out the back

Of course you'll fry the Brakes & bearings If you you drive with the caravan handbrake on & the get upset when the dealer tells you that clowns don't get rewarded for stupidity

"GrandCruiser is not recommended by Avis???", I reckon this clown has been sprung towing a Caravan behind a rentawreck, probably pulled the freckle out of the Camry it when he didn't know how to realease the caravan handbrake

Outstanding home away from home

published

We purchased our grand cruiser from David in Newcastle 9 months ago. The service and information he provided were outstanding as is the ongoing service. We have enjoyed thousands of kilometers of trouble free touring in comfort and style. We are so impressed with the overall performance and quality of the inclusions and have recommended both the van and sales team to many of our caravanning friends. Congratulations grandcruiser for being one of the best vans on the market and congratulations David and his team.
We could not be happier.
Efficiency of design, quality of inclusion and modern appearance

Ive just been to the new Grandcruiser factory in Cooma and i have to say these vans are unreal .They have now Brought the whole business back from O/S and have now got a new furniture builder and a beautiful modern finish i nearly bought a 12month old GC and when i saw the quality i placed an order gloss paint furniture in silver grey black bench tops with glass splash backs and independent suspension plus all the standard grandcruiser gear .I was happy with the old Grandcruisers but these new ones are at least 20% better they are a bit dearer i payed $72000 but i think it is well worth it.Have a look you will be blown away.
Best Quality i have seen using all modern materials

Sue Jonesasked

Would it be possible to put an oven in a 21,6" GC, club lounge layout? Looking at second hand ones but sadly most only have cooktop with grills?
Thanks Granny.

I wouldn't buy a grandcruiser if i were you. It wouldn't be structurally strong enough for the oven anyway. I have had to fix and strengthen all of the cabinetry in my gc. The board they use is cheap chinese and impossible to colour match unless you get some spare with the van from new.
Won't be woth the trouble.

Obviously the reply above is an owner that bought a Chinese import that Grandcruiser did for a short period. We have had 2 Grandcruiser 21'6" caravans .The first one we had for 6 years buying it in 2008 and was a factory seconds . The only problem we had was water pipes bursting We probably did about 30,000 Klm in that one.The 2 nd one we had built and started touring in November 2014 It has acombined oven/ hot plates and front club lounge with the east/west bed in a slideout. We have just completed a 40,000 Klm round Australia trip with only very minor problems. The cupboards in this van are all marine ply with a 2 pack type finish and are of excellent quality. Both vans were built in Australia.

Thanks for your replys. I have spoken to other van repairers, since my enquiry and they can fit an oven, or remove the grill and put a complete unit in. We have checked out Sportcruisers personally in 2012 and we were impressed with the cabinetry.I guess if extra support needs putting internally, they will do that. Overall , it is do able, something to think about.Benf what year was GC using the cheap chinese imports?

Are talvor caravans any good? I know that Apollo has dumped them from their range (they need to update their website to reflect this and the fact that the Melbourne dealership no longer exists)

Grand cruiser caravans are made in Newcastle and have nothing to do with Talvor or Apollo
