Supreme Caravan

We are looking at buying a new caravan and have been looking at a Supreme Classic with independent suspension.
We like to get off the highways where possible and down gravel tracks. In the furure the Birdsville & Oodnadatta Tracks, Gibb River Road etc...
Does anyone know if the Classic is suitable for this type of travelling or should we be looking at something like the Territory, or Getaway.

Hi Russan,
If it were me I'd be looking at an older Supreme Getaway especially for the GRR.
This has been an active Topic recently.
I'm awaiting news from a person who had a Classic Costum made just recently.
When she contacts me I'll let you know.
Take care. Safe travels Ma.

P.S.Supreme has reinvented the Getaway by calling it the New Generation Getaway. As we couldn't afford a new one we didn't really look at it in great depth.
Before 2000 were the ones with a fantastic reputation. Maybe, if you have the money, you could get yours custom made to the older type but that will add A lot of extra cost of course.
Things are so much more expensive now.
Have a good talk to them at Supreme.
We've recently purchased a 2nd hand 1996 Off Road van & it is one of the Golden Oldies with the great Reputation.
Have a look through the last Posts for about a week they may help.
This is only in our opinion.
Take care, safe travels.Ma

We have the "older look" 1997 Getaway which has travelled just about every rough track possible for a van.
Extremely sturdy, but also very heavy which is a drawback.
Ours has a side door, to me much more prefferable than a rear entry where all the dust accumulates.
If you wanted any further info you could email bushyx2 at bigpond dot com
