With a north-south queen bed, rear ensuite with separate shower and toilet plus lounge for four, you would think the Mirage Sport 17’6 was a lot bigger than it is

We spent a day with the Sunseeker Mirage Sport 17’6 on Noosa’s northern heads, a great day-camping spot with plenty of opportunity to find a bit of beach for yourselves. We chose that location as it also gave us a chance to test the Mirage Sport's suspension as well as checking its clearance in soft sand and to avoid the damage rocks can do. What we came away with was a feeling that the 17’6 was a capable offroader, even for a full-bodied caravan.

THE WRAP

With a features list that reads like a 20-footer, the Sunseeker Mirage Sport 17’6 belies its diminutive size. Add in the easy maneuverability of its single axle and you get a recipe for a lot of caravan and ability. The localised design and ease of customisation are massive bonuses too.
