his is a great all-rounder that will take on longer trips without complaint
Very simple to use; the double bed arrangement
Shower cubicle does not have enough headroom
The Tracker has two lounge seats – one on either side of the ’van – and this straightforward approach makes it easy to fit people in when entertaining. It also makes it easy to use the passenger’s rotating captain chair as a seat when dining. However, the table isn’t big enough to allow more than four people to dine simultaneously.
The Tracker provides a small worksurface next to the fridge unit with a fold-up tray to hold the TV. There’s an aerial and socket on the wall behind the fridge worktop. This design means people can see the TV’s screen easily.
If you prefer to read rather than watch television, there are two large side windows in the lounge area. A large skylights help to brighten the living area on dull days and directional spotlights mean that getting stuck into a good book is easy on the eyes.
The kitchens is on the rear nearside. It has a decent-sized workspace on the hob and at the sink and plenty of kitchen cupboard space, crockery storage and cutlery drawers.
The rear kitchen design also means that there is some extra worktop, with the fridge beneath it. The kitchen is easy to use while cooking, but the floor-mounted fridge means bending down to get at its contents. There’s also no splash guard on the wall, so caution will be needed to avoid marking the wood while cooking.
You get a locker to keep wine glasses and bottles securely fastened. It’s on the left-hand wall on the other side of the door from the sink, so it’s easy to access.
The Tracker’s sink is too small to make it easy to use and could be an irritant on longer trips. The shower cabinet has a handy, removable, rail that can be used to hang wet coats. However, there is not as much headroom in the shower cubicle as in some other ’vans, so those above average height have to stoop to fit in.
You’re offered a decent amount of storage space in the washroom, so you will have no problems stacking away towels. A towel rail and toilet roll holder is also provided. There’s a Thetford electric-flush toilet that rotates for greater ease of use.
Creating the double bed is a simple matter of pulling the bases of the two benches together in the centre of the lounge area. The upper bench cushions are lifted and the bases slid back into place, and the upper seat cushions placed down – all in a matter of seconds. This creates a large double bed.
The wardrobe is in the main cabin, on the right-hand side just in front of the washroom. This is where the dining table is stored when not in use, and this pinches a little space.
There are useful lockers above the lounge area, as well as large lockers in the overcab section.
Beneath the lounge seats is a reasonably sized storage area, with external access to the left-hand bench.
