BUSHMASTER BLUEGUM OFFROAD: VIDEO REVIEW

By: LAURA KEYS, Photography by: STUART GRANT


The Bushmaster Bluegum Offroad is a high spec, good-value caravan to take you off the beaten track.

Quality over quantity is the hallmark of Bushmaster manufacturer Terry Ryan's business. His specialisation has paid off in the Bluegum range of vans, marketed as 'Australia's best value offroad vans'.

Bushmaster Bluegum Offroad specifications

The new Bushmaster Bluegum Offroad is a single-axle offroad van designed for people who want to go remote and stay there for as long as possible. At 17ft 10in (internal), the Bushmaster Bluegum Offroad is the smallest of the Bushmaster fleet.

THE VERDICT

It’s one thing to find a strong, solid, go-anywhere offroad van for around $100K, it’s quite another to find the same attributes in a van for under $65K. While it’s quite a small package, the Bushmaster Bluegum 17ft 10in offers true-blue offroad travel at a fraction of the price of many other vans. That good value is further extended by the long list of standard inclusions and attention to detail given to most aspects of the van.
