The Expedition Van

The  Cruiser 16 Island is part of Modcon RV’s Expedition series with sleeping for up to three.

Utilising the latest RV manufacturing techniques, the walls and roof are made of 30mm thick fibreglass composite panels, providing both strength and excellent insulation but also keeping weight to a minimum.

The light weight construction means we can include all the gear such as a 152L fridge, oven and four burner stove, hot water system, fibreglass shower room, 190L of water, inverter, lithium battery, internal kitchen, spacious dining area and the list goes on. Add the Queen size bed and luxurious ensuite and you have everything you need for fully self supported remote camping.

All the Gear for Couples

Despite its compact size, the Cruiser 16 Island is fully equipped for a couple to tour long term or to go on a weekend away without leaving the comforts of home behind. The queen sized island bed faces north/south with plenty of access for couples not to disturb each other’s sleep. An extra sleeping area is available for a child when the dining seats are converted into a bed.

The fully equipped kitchen with a 152L fridge, stove, grill and oven with sink and bench will keep everyone fed, and externally a second kitchen area means the cook can be part of outdoor life when creating their masterpieces. A genuine leather dining area awaits when outdoors is not suitable.

The rear of the van houses a bathroom with a cassette toilet, wash basin and front loading washing machine with a separate shower allowing for two people to use this area at the same time.

Remote Ready

Water and power limit time spent remote, so the Cruiser Series has what it takes to keep you out there longer.

2 x 95L water tanks and a 125L grey water tank allow the water conscious family or couple to extend their stay away from civilisation. Likewise, the 340a/h LiFePO4 battery and 2 x 200w solar panels on the roof will keep the lights on and the fridge going while your family follows the horizon on that trip of a lifetime.

The electrical system is housed in a dedicated area below the lounge. A 3000w inverter and 70 amp 240v charger round out an impressive electrical set up.

Hot water is provided by a Gas/Electric Truma system. The ensuite is a fibre glass pod construction and the cassette toilet is Thetford.

Build Quality and Longevity

The Cruiser Series utilizes the latest composite panel technology to make a strong, light and well insulated caravan. The roof and side walls of the Cruiser 16 is a single piece fibre glass/closed cell foam core composite panel, while the floor is a PVC honeycomb panel designed for impact resistance. Bonded together, they make a monocoque build of excellent strength and thermal rating. The load bearing sections of the roof panel such as the air conditioning mount are further strengthened with aluminium box section bonded into the panel itself.

The chassis and draw bar are hot dipped galvanised inside and out, making for an undercarriage that will last.


Modcon RV’s Independent Trailing Arm Suspension

Honed by 25 years of off road experience, the Modcon RV independent trailing arm suspension is built to go off the beaten track. The laser cut suspension hangers are 10mm thick and wrap around the chassis cross beam, providing ultimate strength and durability. Likewise the shock absorber mounts are welded to the cross beam top and side. The ladder framework of the trailing arms themselves are of proven design with stiffness and strength far exceeding engineering requirements. Greasable bushes and double shock absorbers finish off a suspension system designed to last for years.
