Personally L'd go for tjhe Jayco over the Coromal, even if only for the better than average warranty back up.

The coromal everyday of the week. Had an offroad silhouette for 5 years. Didn't miss a beat. Took it to hell and back. The jayco would have fallen apart with the same treatment.

Would agree with Shanegu6 we had an off-road Silhouette for a number of years, and it took a lot of punishment but came up well, only negative was underbody protection for cables and plumbing, but I would suggest the same problem would occur in the Jayco,

I have traveled with a good mate who's got a Coromal offroad silhouette .
done - GRR , lake Eyre , cape laveque , middle lagoon , and lots more , travels to fast , I'v traveled with him for over 15,000 k's in the last 3/4 years and hasn't put a spanner on it ( not that he'd know how ...LOL )....IMO a very good van....

Another fan of the Silhouette - SOLID unit, beefier construction and the push out kitchen is a real BONUS - the extra space with the kitchen out is a winner.

Had one two years with only a tap connection failure - moved on since to a full van because we spend most time 'travelling' rather than holidaying at specific locations. The daily setting up on long trips to NT & East coast were inconvenient (but economical on fuel).

Son has a similar Coromal now and extremely happy camper.

G'luck with your choice.

Hi, we had it on the Oodnadatta Track, Mereenie Loop among others, we have just completed a trip on the Gibb River Road in a Coromal Magnum with the same suspension & chassis, it also stood up well to the corrugations & washouts etc,
