The Wild Child of the Sunseeker family

David Gilchrist — 24 May 2017

The 18ft offroad Wild Child is an aluminium-framed van with composite panel sides and fibreglass roof, marine hatches to all outside storage compartments, Dometic awning, LED lighting, stone shield covering on the front window, tunnel boot, storage boot, and a fold open generator storage box.

There’s very little point in finding your way to your hideaway holiday unless you can accommodate the whole family. The Wild Child we looked at boasted three bunks for the kids in what is quite a stylish interior with plenty of storage throughout. And, like the Golden Child, the front of the van featured a comfy east-west caravan-queen-sized bed.

For those that love to spend time in the kitchen, ample LED lighting makes preparing your cordon bleu cuisine all the easier while an acrylic kitchen splash back helps keep the walls tidy. That’s a good thing if you tend to splash the spaghetti sauce a little bit when stirring the pot.

If free camping or going off-grid is your thing, then you’ll need sufficient power. The Wild Child carries one 120A AGM deep-cycle battery and one 150W monocrystalline solar panel with a 30A solar regulator.
