Instead of a front boot , Pro RV has opted for a tunnel storage system that ’ s accessible from either side of the van . Instead of lining it with galvanised sheeting , the manufacturer has given the tunnel boot a floor of protective black checkerplate .
The external finish appears to be to a high standard . The windows , for example , have been sealed with silicone , rather than the foam tape that comes with the windows , which plenty of other manufacturers use . The silicone has clearly been finished by a practiced hand – it ’ s very neat .
The body of the van is built on a 4in ARV DuraGal chassis with a 1.4m 4in A-frame and 3in raiser . Now , the Family Haven is not an offroad caravan and , as such , it is equipped with beam-axle leafspring suspension rated to 2900kg .
Overall , the 21ft 6in Family Haven covers the main bases for comfortable outdoor living . It is well set-up for blacktop touring , including a mix of free-camping and holiday-park stays .
