Keen to purchase a Tvan, Does anyone have any experience with this model. Looking for convenience with little canvas and good towing off road behind 2.8 Patrol. Tvan appears to fit the bill at a Price!.

Bob, the Tvan look good because you can camp under hard roofing, rather than canvas, in inclement weather. Also the suspension looks as if it will handle any terrain. We don't need one for 3 or 4 years, how about you buy one , then you can teel us just how good they are. At least they look better than the Ultimate van. happy touring , regards

Bob,

Check the archives on http://groups.yahoo.com/group/campertrailers
Several of the members there have a TVan and would undoubtedly give you all information you need.

Cheers

I spent a night camped next to one near Winton earlier this year.

Got talking with the owners and they were totally rapt in it.

Their model was one of the originals and did suffer from letting a bit of dust in through the plexiglass window seals. They also did not like the strength of the clasps securing the slide away kitchen area and had strengthened them.

The bloke knew the manufacturer personally and told me he had passed his comments along to him with the result that many of the problems of the originals have now been attended to.

To summarize - a great little camper trailer - tough as guts, well desinged and well built.

My current offorader is a soft floor tent model, and I am thinking of upgrading it soon.

I have the "T" on a short list with a Kimberley Kamper and an Ultimate.

Aaaaah - decisions, decisions,decisions. :) :)

BoB , we have just sold our Track Trailer to update to a T-Van we had no probs with the trailer, the suspension is one of its greatest assets & will handle anything you can throw at it. Resale is also exceptional with these trailers. Alan Mawson of Track is a great man to deal with, & any problem will be fixed as they always strive for perfection. Cheers Steve

Wow, the prices!!! No way I would pay that sort of money for a camper. Sure, I realise it is well appointed, and yes, the chassis and suspension are well made and genuinely suitable for serious off-road, but the price is over the top. I don't mind spending the dollars and like well designed and well made gear, but these are *MIGHTY* expensive.

Bob, I actually went to the factory in Melbourne to look at these. They had a couple in various stages of construction so we could see how they were made. They are definately the goods. Unfortunately, they were a little out of our price range at the time, maybe in 2004. A club member recently bought one and tried to drown it in a river crossing. There was a small amount of water in it when he was recovered but the bedding and electrics stayed dry. I have a 2.8 Patrol and it would pull it without any problems. Why not look at hiring one from Russell Guest in Melbourne to try before you decide to buy?

Thanks Cobra and everyone else for their input. Yes I'd like to see the factory and will get the chance when we pick up our Tvan in February.
I know they are expensive but if we don't do it now we never will.

Should have plenty of time to prepare and get used to the Tvan before April when we plan to visit Kangaroo Island.
Best wishes and a Merry Xmas.Happy Travelling
Bob
