Which manufacturers can offer a six berth all road caravan?
Why? My neighbour is jelous of our lifestyle and wants to get into it. He's wanting to get a van for his family of little ones and get out into the big beyond.
Any help appreciated

Hi

Tell your neighbour to have a look at www.jayco.com.au and look at the "Expanda" range (model 16.49-2) not a bad van, built to sell but if your neighbour is just starting out it may suit his budget.

We're in the same position as your neighbour and looking for something with room for kiddies. Depending on what your neighbour wants to do & where he's going, as to what might be suitable.

We're looking for something around 21' that can go most places, on & off road, and have found most manufacturers have layouts both in poptops and full vans to suit, with off-road or semi-off road options as well. Personally, I refuse to have a Jayco Expanda or similar, cos if I wanted to sleep in a tent, I would! Plus we're doing 'the lap' so I need some space & comfort if hubby is to come out of the trip alive!!

So far I've looked at Jayco, Millard, Traveller, Coromal, Roadstar, Western and Windsor. My pic is Roadstar, hubby likes the Western (especially as it's made here in WA).

Second hand vans are hard to come by, but they do come up occasionally. Check out www.rvpoint.com.au and www.tradingpost.com.au for a huge range of vans.

Otherwise Google the manufacturer names and see what comes up (except don't bother with Millard, their website is just a front page).

Value for money & practicality the Expanda is hard to beat.

You have the simplicity of towing a 16ft van but the interior space of a 25ft van.

Yes you sleep under canvas but it is ridiculous to compare that to sleeping in a tent. The beds are larger than most beds in "normal" vans & just as comfortable.

There are a wide range of configurations available including a bunk model that will sleep 7 or 8 - try that in a standard van under 25ft & still have room to move

I forgot to mention, we're doing a 12 month trip around the block next year with our 6 & 7 year old kids & i don't reckon there's a van out there that could be more comfortable for our needs
