Hi thinking of purchasing a secondhand Campervan and have come across a Goldstream Goldstar 2001 model for $15k. Does anyone have any comments/feedback on this van, price and it's suitability for offroad? Thanks in advance

Hi Meercat,
The goldstar is a popular model due to a great floor plan and layout.It is quite spacious for a medium sized camper.The build quality and finish is very good and you should be pleased with the van.If it is the off road model i would be inclined to take it easy over rough roads to get it into where you are going and use it more as a base camp as they really aren't built to withstand the extreme stuff.
cheers Mark

I have a Goldstream Goldlink Offroad. I have dragged it to the top, bourketown to lawn hill and numerous other places. No problems other than a bit of dust leaking in. If you can get it for 15k go for it. Mine is a 2000 model and is insured for 20k. The only change I made was to add solar power and a extra water tank.

Hi Meercat,
Sounds like you have abandoned the idea of using the Viscount aerolite for your travels.

From all reports the Goldstream is a robust unit and should fulfil your requirements with no real trouble.

You can be sure that you will find little things that are not right for you but mostly they can be modified to suit.

Good Luck with your plans.

Gerday Meercat.

If you do purchase the Goldstream camper, have a good look at the suspension.

My 2003 Goldwing II is supposedly an off-road model, but suspension wise still had only the basic 6 leaf springs & dampers.

I wasn't confident on it's ability to handle corrugations or big potholes, so replaced the lot with Al-Ko 9 leaf off-road leaf springs & heavy duty dampers.

The rest of the camper is brilliant & everything that we wanted, just be aware of the limitations of the standard suspension package!

Lotsa luck!
