New Rig


This will be my first attempt at posting a photo. If it works it will show our new rig. Although Im from the uk I am interested in all things caravan.

The rig in question is an Alaria van, made by Lunar, Alde central heating and hot water, BP auto levelling system, PowrTouch mover, fixed transverse bed, overrun brakes, all pulled by a Navara 3ltr v6

Please be gentle and tell me what you think

Mark

Hi Mark and welcome to Greynomds down under.

Your tow vehicle is a ripper, I can tell you that for sure as I own one o these beauties, the V6 is loaded with performance connected to the smart 7 speed auto along with the big front brakes. They were sold down here in very limited numbers, price tag way to high for the traddie to buy.

The caravan is some what different to what is popular down under, once again English/European caravan are sold here limit number, Baileys is possibly the most common but others are around.

The dark colour of the Navara and the base white with dark graphics would make the caravan a standout in the parking lot or on the highway, very cool.

My 3rd thought, would you of been better posting this in "Show us Your Rig".

Here is a photo my 2014 Nissan Navara V6 and 19.6 Concept Vision. Stopped for lunch at Urunga, a seaside town (village) of NSW.

Enjoy your travels.20180320_141901 Lunch Uranga NSW.jpg

Hi and thanks for your comments.
Did your nav come with the hard top, I would like one for the extra dry space it provides, however 1000-1500 is a lot of money.
Your caravan looks a very solid piece of kit, whats the weight ?
Euro caravans tend to be much lighter mainly due to tug capabilities and driving licence regs. Driving off road is only limited to crossing a field to reach a pitch (site).
This Wednesday we are off for about 10 days, a week at a canal camp ground called Devizes followed by a few days by the sea in SW England (got to be back for granddaughters dance show)
Weather is glorious here today expected 25 degrees

H I Mark

We go around 5 500kgs when we are touring, in Australia I can legally go to 6 000kgs, I happy with the Navara at 2 800kgs and the caravan 2 700kgs with 280kgs on the tow ball.

240ltrs of water, dry 80ltre for spare, 2x9 kgs of gas, 2 x105amp batterys, 2x160 watts solar panels. En-suite with 2.5 washing machine,

. Its a great touring caravan, both are easy travelers. May 3 weeks and 2 500ks, then after attending appointments at home, in May went touring again another 3 000ks mostly freedom camping.

The weather here at the moment mid 25cel, while we were away down in NSW the temps were around the high 20ties. Looking forward to the end of May as we will head north to the top area of Queensland a place called Karumba, 2 000ks from Brisbane where the temps will be warmer.

Enjoy.
