I was unfamiliar with Pro RV Caravans when I arrived at Caravan Court in Springvale , Vic . Caravan Court is something of an institution in the Victorian caravan industry . This family-run business has been a fixture of the Victorian RV scene for over 60 years . It ’ s also the company behind the highly-regarded Eco-Tourer .
But Caravan Court , in recent times , has also begun selling Pro RV vans . The line-up includes a wide range of caravans , from the 17ft 2in Stallion to the 22ft Panther . Among the range is the Family Haven , which is available in a 20ft 6in format as well as in a 21ft 6in format .
The 21ft 6in van was hitched to a GU Nissan Patrol when I arrived at Caravan Court . I fitted the Patrol with some tow mirrors and hit the highway , heading towards the Mornington Peninsula .
TOWING AND CONSTRUCTION
The Pro RV Family Haven sat very well behind the Patrol . At highway speeds , this caravan was a picture of composure . It uses a standard 50mm ball coupling and I did not use any towing aids – straight on the ball , it was a pleasure to tow .
Externally , it is quite well equipped . There ’ s a couple of external speakers and LED awning lights , a 12V point near the fold-down picnic table , a fold-down entry step , and a full-length awning .
