TRAKKABOUT: I'll have what he's having...

Our fearless Trakka leader, Dave Berry is selling his day-to-day Volkswagen Crafter Motorhome, the Jabiru. But don’t let our mention of “day-to-day” fool you! Yes, it will tackle the city roads but this beloved 2WD Jabiru also took Dave on his recent Sydney to Darwin adventure; and it’s safe to say it saw some serious cross-country action. So if you’re in the market for a trustworthy pre-loved Volkswagen Crafter motorhome, here are a few things you ought to know;

This is a 6-speed manual and features a 2.0L 120kW engine with 400Nm of torque. It comes with 11 & half months of registration & new car warranty with Volkswagen. Along with an electronic control panel for checking battery, water levels, and temperature, this rear wheel drive, has a reversing and rear view camera too. Complete with swivel front seats, a two-burner gas stove, 136L fridge/freezer, drinking water filtration, multi position TV & antenna and LOADS of storage, this favourite also includes a crockery & crockery storage system, roller shutter doors & overhead lockers; and blinds & window screens (including front cab).

Coupled with a switch mode bathroom feature, north/south single beds which, convert to double (2.05 metres in length) and a 12V fan; this vehicle is built for comfort, drivability and flexibility – and that’s just part of the interior!

The exterior includes a shower, outdoor work bench on side door, 4m side wind out awning, powered side entry step, additional folding work bench at the sliding door (which is great for serving meals/freeing up bench space) and a 160L fresh water tank.

Naturally, Dave had a number of options fitted to his dearly loved Jabiru, including:

 Ducted diesel room heater
 160W solar charging system
 Tow bar
 LED strip light upgrade in front cab
 UHF radio
 Side & rear door screens

So where has this adventure seeking vehicle been?

Dave and his best mate (Jabiru 4×4 Xtra owner) Fuzzy started their 3-week journey from Sydney to Darwin and drove the roads less travelled through Euabalong by the Lachlan River, NSW; as well as Broken Hill and White Cliffs (where they actually camped among the opal mines)!

This Jabiru camped by Gidgealpa Waterhole (accessed via Walkers Crossing 4WD Track); made stops in Birdsville (QLD), Lawn Hill (QLD), Calvert River (NT), Nicolson River (NT), McArthur River (near Borroloola NT); did creek crossings, not to mention 100’s kms of corrugated roads! And while they did get bogged in Innaminka Regional Reserve, SA (along the Old Strzelecki Track – Innaminka to Merty Merty 4WD Track), they didn’t need to dig themselves out thanks to Fuzzy’s Jabiru 4×4, which features a winch & 3.0L V6 turbo diesel!

This vehicle goes – oh does it go!
