Queensland-based manufacturer Otron Caravans builds a range of caravans suitable for all kinds of travel, including the Signature Spirit Series 2, a 22ft (6.7m) model.

The chassis is built using SupaGal RHS grade C450LO instead of the lighter grade C350 LO. Between the 150mm/6in chassis rails are the 200L fresh and 100L grey water tanks. Mounted on the front offside rail is the battery box (with two 120Ah batteries) and just about everything else has been neatly strapped up out of the way. That includes the water pump which is below floor level – put there to reduce the possibility of internal water leaks.
In its standard form, this Otron Signature Spirit caravan retails at $67, 500 but our review van had a few extras fitted which bumps up the price a bit. But optional items solar panels are not really an option if remote travel is on your agenda. With all the extra goodies fitted, the Spirit is a very well-appointed van and there's absolutely nothing wrong with the general workmanship, fit and finish. It looks to me like a pretty good van for touring around Australia.
- Grey water tank fitted.
- Excellent fit and finish
- Well-sanded timber around the cupboard frames
- Spacious bedroom and bathroom areas
- Generously sized kitchen bench area
- Foot rests and drawers under dinette seats
I WOULD HAVE LIKED
- Not much, there's nothing wrong with the workmanship
- How about 5V USB sockets for device chargers
