Hi Teago.
Don't own a van but also looking at these 3. I've seen lots on the road (and off it). I think the Bush Masters are a bit above our budget but seen a number of Crusaders that we like.
Hope you get some good feedback.

Hi Teago you may need to look at other vans depending on what type of trips you plan on tackling.
For experienced companies at off road vans look at the following:- Bushtracker, Kedron, Phoenix, Trackmaster, and Spinnfex.
From my past experience independent suspension is necessity.
Check that each van as the same bells and whistles on it when pricing them up.
Warm Regards
John

Tks John , The vans you mention are very much more expensive & as well in some case much heavier, . The 3 I am looking at are mid $60k by the time you finish say $70K. My 3 have independant suspension . Tks for your input Rgds Teago

I take it that you don't mean one of these ...

It'd mean you would have no difficulty getting a parking spot. It would be a great "reno" project tho, to convert one of these into a motorhome!

Mike

I had a look at the Avida Sapphire at Agquip at Gunnedah this week. It is in your price range and also available with independent off road suspension.

They are really well built and nicely equipped. They do not have any timber in their construction but are entirely composite which does not rot and any damage is easy to repair.

They are worth a look

Tks Duncan,
I have talked with AVIDA on previous occassions as the finish of their van is quite nice . However unless things have changed they told me they do not make an off road van . But I will check at the Penrith show Sept 5th . Tks for taking the time to respond Rgds Teago
