Had a chat with the fellas this morning who are just started to build the Jorgen brand of caravans for Australia.

Their an enthusiastic bunch and would appreciate any feedback from past owners, or those that have looked at the product and decided to go else where.

What ever you have to say (good or bad) I'll pass the comments on.

It's good to see young blokes having a go and employing people in small country towns.

PS I have no affiliation.

Ya probably mean Jurgens. A Scandinavian/German name but now pretty much in South Africa.

I've been looking for someone who sells em for a while now.

Looked at the Expedition/explorer and almost bought one a couple of years ago. Missus wouldn't let me but has changed her mind, again. So it's back on the want list.

Love the concept, gives the best of both worlds I reckon.

Regular travelling friends had a Jurgen's van for 2 years before getting rid of it. Despite it's bullet proof looks & reputation they managed to have one completely fall apart (literally) due to wrong fixing screws being used (they were told). It was replaced under warrenty but then had several issues with the canvas culminating in the draw bar collapsing. (Broke off at the body)
Looking from my view it's an unusual product that is neither quick to completely set up like a van nor is it light and manuverable to tow to places like the Cape but no doubt the construction quality issues can certainly be fixed.
Plenty of testing on rough outback roads with a full load to shake down any problems and setting up in heavy rain to make sure the canvas works would be a priority.
Good luck with their enterprise.

I'm sure there would be hundreds of people on here willing to test their new vans out for them and give them a full report.................. ;-)

Cheers,
