Used Caravan of the Week: Voyager Vector 650

by Holly Tribe

On quieter moments in the Caravan Times office conversation often turns to the topic of ‘what is our ideal caravan?’ This usually leads to some dedicated research, or, scanning the classified ads and daydreaming about the perfect van!

Along the line, we often stumble across a few quirky little numbers – and thought you might be interested in what’s out there on the used and second hand market.

In our first ever ‘Used Caravan of the Week’ we bring you the Voyager Vector 650: currently listed on eBay for £18,995.

One of just three prototypes ever made, the Voyager Vector is a concept caravan that was built in 2005 for the little-known Voyager caravans.

Originally priced at £25,000, it was estimated to have a massive 25 year shelf life before succumbing to the perils of water ingress – that’s £1K per year for watertight touring.

As you would expect from a concept ‘van, it’s got some completely unique design features. The front end has a windowless aerodynamic nose cone that curves upward to meet the roof…which has led me to affectionately nickname it the ‘Back-to-the-Future Egg’.

According to the Daily Telegraph, it was the first ever monocoque caravan to be built using a single mould. Cheltenham Laminates are the brains behind the construction system, which uses the same technology developed for the monocoque bodyshell on Auto-Sleepers motorhomes.

The advertised price is £18,995: and if the original marketing spiel is anything to go by, it still has another twenty years of life left in it before the dreaded water seepage sets in.

‘<' . strtolower('Array')>History: According to the sellers, the van has been used a grand total of five times, and is offered in top condition, both smoke and pet-free.

Kit & caboodle: Dometic fridge/freezer, flat screen TV, alloy wheels, sun canopy, fixed end bed, touch pad dimmer switches, radio/ CD, heki rooflights, stone effect floor, mains hook up, TV aerial.
