Great escape means Roadstar Vacationer

Peter Quilty — 11 May 2017

There’s no disputing the Vacationer’s semi-offroad credentials with its 3500kg-rated AL-KO Enduro Outback independent trailing arm coil spring independent suspension with twin shock absorbers, plus a sturdy SupaGal chassis (made from premium BHP steel) and MPC offroad tyres. That’s standard fare for a full offroad van!

The suspension provides the extra ground clearance needed for lumpy, difficult tracks and it rendered the van extremely capable on the uneven surfaces I encountered.

Talking about interior, the standout, for me, is the extravagant (for a caravan) kitchen and exquisite rear ensuite – both emitting not only a high level of luxury but dual brightness high output LED lights.

Any chef on the move would be impressed with the quality kitchen appliances including a Swift four-burner stove/grill/oven, Swift Dluxx microwave, stainless steel rangehood and 184L Thetford N604 two-door three-way evaporative fridge – plus a water filter tap at the kitchen sink and the impressive aesthetic of a laminate tile-look kitchen splashback.

This 28ft caravan will give you more than a typical on-roader with its semi-offroad features. You will be resting and relaxing in no time!
