This high quality and very special caravan was my father's, and while very loved, was used little before he passed away and is being sold for our family by Bozcrome who make the SLR 1900. The caravan is in exceptional condition, had an original cost of $135,329 and is highly specd. This specific caravan was featured in Caravan World in September 2013.

Note: Bozcrome will confirm that the caravan is the one featured in the Caravan World article and will be able to answer questions about the caravan's specifications. The details below are also in the article.
The SLR 1900 Premium Offroad van, is a 19-footer (internal) designed to combine luxury, offroad capability and the ability to free camp for extended periods.
SLR's one-piece galvanised steel construction means the chassis and frame are an integrated monocoque, creating a very rigid and tough structure. From the outside, it looks a robust kit, riding on factory Toyota steel wheels and offroad tyres, while its rear bumper, two spares and a roof ladder all suggest serious offroad intent. Up front is a Hitch-Ezy 360-degree offroad hitch, which is as a fantastic piece of engineering. Underneath, the van is a tough cookie, with twin-axle Cruisemaster independent coil suspension and dual shock absorbers, plus plenty of bash plating. The overall Tare is 2740kg, and there's a mammoth ATM of 4100kg.
The power system utilises four 6V sealed deep-cycle batteries to give an impressive 450Ah, and there are three 135W Kyocera solar panels. While this system alone should suit most applications, SLR has also fitted a Honda 2kVA generator as a back up or for when 12V power isn't enough.
As for the water, SLR has designed a system that allows the user to individually select which tank to fill and draw from at the touch of a button, allowing you to isolate various water sources. This particular van features four 85L tanks for fresh water, with another 85L for grey water.
My father was specific with his requirements for the inside of the van, and the result is a well thought-out space. It feels very open with the lounge and dinette, which is straight in front of the entry, provides a spacious place to relax.
SLR has done away with any tall cupboards in the main living area and, combined with an under-bench rather than tall fridge, it feels remarkably open inside. The fridge-freezer is still of ample 200L size, and the benchtop above is very generous for food preparation. The windows seem as large as possible too, so the space is filled with light and, when required, lots of air can be let in to circulate to make this a very comfortable living area.
The cabinetry is top-notch, and has been imported from Germany so can be described as the Mercedes of the caravan furniture world with soft-close runners for the drawers and good quality compression latches. The benchtop is a solid surface hand-crafted by SLR, is heat and bacteria resistant, and looks and feels superb. A slide-out solid chopping board is a handy and well-hidden touch.
As for luxuries, the lounge is both beautiful and comfortable, entertainment comes from a 22in HD LCD TV, DVD player, stereo, iPod dock and external hard drive, while there's also a 3G internet and phone antennae, ideal for modern living while on long journeys. Lighting is LED throughout, while powerpoint and overall storage are decent for a 19ft van.
