Majestic Series 2 Sierra Extreme: Video Review
Get great bang for your buck with the spacious and surprising Majestic Series 2 Sierra Extreme.
If ‘bling’ is your thing, Majestic’s Series 2 Sierra Extreme may not be for you. But if it’s solid construction and good value you are after in an all-road touring caravan, you can double tick that box.
DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
Series 2 Sierras can easily be distinguished from earlier models by Majestic’s use of smooth fibreglass cladding for the front and rear panels, contrasting with the ribbed aluminium used on their side walls. Both are fitted to a meranti timber frame that incorporates polystyrene insulation.
A closer look reveals twin external speakers for the van’s standard AM/FM/iPod-capable sound system, while an external picnic table is another new standard feature.
The beautifully-finished Austrail A-frame and main chassis gain extra clearance above the Extreme’s Simplicity trailing arm, load-sharing suspension thanks to a 50mm riser, while extra checkerplate shielding for the brass A-frame tap shows that Majestic is prepared for its customers to leave the comfort of the bitumen.
The central cafe-style dinette and kitchen straddle the tandem wheel arches, as in most vans of this size, and are neatly separated from the bedroom by scalloped bulkheads on each side.
The Genius battery management system, with its easily accessible fuses and adjacent level gauges for the twin 95L fresh water tanks, plus the switches for the water pump and gas hot water service, are all conveniently located in the one cupboard above the cooktop.
