Family caravans seem to be on a bit of a rise in Australia at the current time, which I’m basing on the fact that most of the larger manufacturers now seem to have at least one bunk van model in their lineup.

Brisbane-based Winnebago is no exception to this, and whilst a number of its caravans are three-berth, ie fold-down the dinette for the third bed, the Mossman C is definitely the full kit with a double bed up front and two bunks down the rear. Or, as in the case of my review caravan, there is an option for a third bunk.

With a length of 6.82m (22ft 4in) and a payload of 826kg, the Mossman C is well suited for family travel. Most of the Australian caravan industry is Melbourne regional based and, for that reason, many manufacturers tend to follow the same path in terms of construction methods.

The bottom line

For those whose family budget extends beyond a multi bed, pop-up, pop-out camper trailer, the next step is really something like this Mossman C. With a standard price of $68,804, it might well be expected to give quite a few good family holidays.

It’s certainly a spacious van, even more so if an annexe is fitted to the awning which considerably extends the living area. Both the 82L water tanks and the battery/solar panel capacity give the ability for a bit of off-the-grid travel as well.
