Great van with a few build quality issues

Awning was badly fitted. Needed a replacement after 2 years. Dometic 9000. Otherwise a great van. Would be 5 stars if supplied with better quality fixtures and workmanship. After lots of kms and 2.5 years fulltime on the road our DRX is a solid, reliable, dry and safe home. Highly recommended. Just pay attention to Dometic appliances and awning. Show details

Awesome Caravan

We picked up our new Dirt RoaderExtreme and are extremely happy with it. The attention to detail in all aspects is Outstanding. We did a factory tour of JB in Melbourne and are so pleased we did it. It gave us total peace of mind to see the way they were built and the quality control. Also the handover was excellent. They went through everything it detail. It tows perfectly. All in all we could not be happier and we are very impressed with JB. Thank you. Show details

Perfect

Picked up our Extreme in May 2018. Everything was perfect, everything working. Have now done thousands of kilometres and have had nothing go wrong. Would buy another.

They simply are Just Brillant.

JB caravan update

We have given the 21ft Dirtroader a warranty shakedown. Just been to Flinders Ranges, Birdsville and now on way back to BRISBANE.

This trip has been 6,000 K and the van has been fantastic. Went on rough and dust roads. The only dust to penetrate was through the fridge vent, which is my issue and not JB's. So all in all the quality and finish and strength cannot be question. Would have no problem recommending this van.

I'm curious if anyone has compared the option with the Scorpion Sting. Personally, I would be satisfied with a dirt road extreme as long as the independent suspension can withstand the rough conditions of the Gibb River Road and Cape. My question is whether the caravan has the same level of under-protection and if it can prevent dust from entering through the seals and vents.

you can choose the option of having an instantaneous HWS - maybe an extra $600 or thereabouts
