Another noteworthy point regarding the various package options is that they determine the construction method for the van . The Bronze , for example , provides a standard meranti timber frame and aluminium cladding , while the Gold gives a TIG-welded aluminium frame clad with composite aluminium . In Silver spec , our Pearl had CNC-routed A- bond exterior plywood walls ( rather than a traditional frame ) that had been clad with composite aluminium . The pieces of plywood are locked and bonded together to effectively create one-piece walls .
The roof , meanwhile , is a onepiece fibreglass construction , while the floor is a 17mm honeycomb plastic structure that will never rot .
The exterior fitout is quite reasonable , too – it has all the expected features , including a generous checkerplate storage box on the A-frame . This box contains a slide-out tray on either side . The nearside tray would easily accommodate a portable fridge or barbecue ; however , the offside tray is on the small side , though it should still fit a 2kVA generator . In the centre , you ’ ll find a storage compartment for general items .
