Sea-Breeze Custom 24 specifications
From the outside, at 9.4m end to end, the Sea-Breeze Custom 24 is a substantial rig. It differentiates itself from most other all-terrain rigs with the use of composite panel rather than checkerplate for the lower body. The result is an understated elegance that works well.
Up front, a substantial 6in DuraGal drawbar takes care of business and runs all the way back to the suspension mounts. The drawbar supports twin 9kg gas cylinders and a sullage hose tray between the rails, with a standard 50mm ball coupling, handbrake, Anderson plug, removable jockey wheel and mains tap completing the drawbar fittings.
Control Rider independent coil suspension with shockers dampens out the corrugations, while 12in brakes manage stopping duties. Three shielded 82L water tanks are fitted: two supply fresh water while a third collects grey water during free-camping, allowing you to dump it later at a suitable facility.
The stand outs are the zoned living areas, easy-access storage, and the sense of real space brought about by those few extra feet in length and extra-large windows. It’s a delight to prepare a meal in a caravan kitchen without feeling restrained by the lack of genuine bench space. And then there’s the van’s generous payload, allowing you to safely and legally carry full tanks of water if you choose to, plus your usual touring load. In this case, it is hard to deny that bigger is better.
