It's a two way tussle at the top of the group, between Zone RV's 20.6 Off-Road and Sunland's Patriot SEL-X Plus, for the honour of taking out the $100K-plus category at Best Aussie Vans.

Last year's winner, the Sunland Patriot, has returned for another tilt at the flag in a new, and hopefully improved, suit of armour. With more goodies than you could list, the Patriot, which sells as shown for $159,990, is a serious bit of kit with everything you could possibly need for life on the road - and more. It includes airbag suspension, a full aluminium drawbar and chassis, 'Marilyn Monroe'-style mirror lights, genuine Italian leather finishings, three solar panels including two which tilt, a swing-away bumper bar, rear service hatch, and much, much, more.

As sleek and 'simple' looking as the Patriot is bold and brazen, the $136,000 Zone RV 20.6 Off-Road has a fairly plain and streamlined exterior that belies the level of precision and engineering that's gone into its design. Zone RV is a relatively new name in the RV industry and is beginning to make some waves with its 100% timber-less caravan constructions, derived from marine boat building techniques. The inside is also sleek and stylish, with a high level of attention to detail and intelligent design.
