The Golden Child of the Sunseeker family

David Gilchrist — 22 May 2017

The Golden Child is the latest addition to Sunseeker’s stable and Caravan World got the first look at it in advance of its official release at the Queensland Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow in June (Brisbane Showgrounds, June 7-12).


From hitch to the rear bumper, the Golden Child comes in at a smidge under 8m with a body length of around 6m. It’s about the right size for a family van without being too tight for living space or too cumbersome for towing.



As family vans go, Sunseeker’s new Golden Child has a lot going for it. With a Tare weight of 2250kg, a medium-sized SUV will handle towing duty. 

Checkerplate wraps around all four composite walls and, sitting on the chassis, a marine ply floor with a waterproof membrane completes the structural package that includes an aluminium frame.


Step inside the Golden Child and you find a van interior that matches the panache of the exterior.


Kitchen-wise, the travelling cook won’t be disappointed with the Swift cooker, a large two door Thetford fridge and microwave, with sufficient storage for your beans and pasta – you’re well set for a little masterchef caravanning action.

Stay tuned for the full review coming next month in Caravan World #564. Subscribe today for the latest caravan reviews and news every month!
