Hi Maroni,

I dont have an Adventure but had a good long look at them when I was over in Adelaide for work earlier this month and from what I have seen they look pretty damn good with lots of attention to detail and some unique features that sets it apart from the rest of the soft floor brigade although at a price.

Also one of the smartest stone guards Ive seen, not to mention the boat/roof rack system that stays out of the way etc, and if thats your price range they leave everything else Ive seen for dead and believe me Ive seen plenty.

If $30K was my price range I wouldn't be looking at anything else, but thats just my opinion.

Used to live around the corner from the factory and I have had several good looks at the Adventure and yes they are good. For extended stays the fit-out is superb. Overnight stays i thought it would be too difficult to set-up quickly.

They are expensive and I always come back to the same issue. Why spend $30000 on a camper trailer when there are many excellent ones around for half that price. You may as well buy a caravan, or put a deposit on a house with that kind of money.

Granted the others aren't as fancy, but you're going camping after all. Do you really need to feel like the only thing missing is a spa bath?

The guys that make them are in my 4wd club so i've had a good look at them on trips. They are brilliant and the back up service appears to be good also. A bit out of my price range though.

They tow like a dream and the big kitchen area is a big plus with the cook, but there is more messing around to get the bed / tent out of the back and set up.
Also make sure the back stabiliser legs don't drop while you are driving on corrugated roads - they point forwards, and if they hit the ground they tear off and make an interesting obstacle for following cars to miss.

I did read somwhere the basic model starts ffrom $18,000.
I'm looking at buying one at the end of the year, You could always hire one a coupe of times just to see if your happy with it.
No use buying a camper and finding it doesn't suit your needs, sometimes it takes a few camping trips to find out. but then again you have to compare with another brand .

Sorry about the late post but just saw your thread.

We've had an Adventure Cape York for 4 years. Been all over in it and over all surfaces. Doesn't leak or take in dust. Easy to tow and in short very happy. Kitchen a major plus as takes everything you can imagine. We have had extra 12v plugs fitted (2 on the back and 2 in kitchen area) as we have 2 Engels and use 12v Fleuros.

Ours has got
Mags matched to our LC so spare interchangeable (Gives us 2 Spares)
2 Water Tanks (60 Ltr)
Electric water pump
4 x 12v Hella Outlets
Its own 12volt power (We use 120 A/Hr AGM Battery)
Volt Meter (Indication only)
We also carry a 13 ft tinny on top as well as 2 bolt on 7ft Pontoons, Chainsaw,Genset, 3 Jerries in the front box and sundry tools.
In other words we work it and it has never failed us.
As to set up time 10 mins for O/night 20 mins for a month (this includes Toilet etc)

Get one ASAP is my rec.

Regards Garry
