Hi Duane
We've got a few die-hard Scorpion owners in the group. Click here to go to the forum.
There's also links in the Documents area on there to a couple of reviews on the Scorpion.

Head height can be ordered to suit but std is 1900mm I think. We had 1950mm and I'm 6'1" and had plenty to spare.

Price varies of course but for an 17/18 footer with shwr/wc and set up with solar and the normal options it'll hover around the 90-100k mark. Quite easy to add another 10k when you start adding all the good stuff like diesel heaters etc.

Got a soft spot for the Scorpions, they're one of the few true off roaders, purpose built for corrugations and the tighter tracks.

John

You'll have to register - quick process and you'll get all the advice you could ever need.

Main thing I'd change would be less bells and whistles to keep wieght down. Keep it simple.

Phoenix are known for their willingness to customise, that's part of why we ended up there.

They have a showroom van showing a popular layout and you can have a gander on what's in production.

John how long did it take them to biuld your van ?
ive heard 2 months is that true ? seems fairly quick to put a van together that fast and one would think they would have a back log to get through just seems strange is the company fairly big and well established you dont hear or see much of them on the west coast if they told you it will be 12 months you would think thats about the norm ,just hope there not starved of work and feeling the crunch ok ive registered with the site ive got a waiting period it tells me for exceptance something like that regards Duane .

Hi Duane, best to ring Phoenix for the right info. I've been speaking to a prospective owner on the POG forum who is expecting delivery in Oct.

You should be able to access the forum now.
