Salute has fitted one spare wheel to the rear
of the van (where you’ll also find an external
shower) while another spare wheel is
mounted underneath, towards the front.
However, customers can choose to instead fit
this second spare at the rear, too.
Forward of the axle, you’ll also find two 95L
water tanks, while rear of the axle is a single
95L grey water tank and associated plumbing.
When full, the water tanks will contribute
quite a bit to the van’s ball weight; however,
the unladen ball weight is a relatively low
155kg. Now, given the van’s ATM of 3500kg,
the tow vehicle is likely to be a rather
muscular 4WD with a 350kg towball
maximum. That being the case, I see no issues
with the position of the water tanks.
On the subject of weights, customers can opt
to lower the Salute Garrison’s ATM to 3200kg.

It’s clear that the 19ft 6in semi-offroad Salute
Garrison packs a pretty decent punch. It’s

with numerous external features, not to
mention a generous payload capacity and
solid 12V system, I believe the Garrison will
offer caravanners many years of faithful,
comfortable service, at a reasonable price.
