Brightest star Roadstar Sirius

What makes this van a stand-out, is the labour-intensive construction methods, the innovation, new technology and new products used.

Roadstar -Sirius

Roadstar Caravans built its name and reputation building strong, but traditional, caravans - think timber frames and ribbed aluminium cladding - which many caravan companies, including Roadstar, still make. But the Sirius represents Roadstar’s step into the future and a new phase of manufacturing.

Big-ticket items like the composite fibreglass exterior, one-piece specially-moulded front and rear panel, and full CNC furniture are complemented by smaller, less-obvious details than Nizam says make all the difference. This includes the seamless and joinless HI-MACS resin benchtops and table surfaces, the recessed cooktop, the super high-gloss Urban Republic cabinet faces, the real leather upholstery and every conceivable outdoor accessory you can dream of.

With its smooth, sleek exterior in glossy white aluminium composite, delicate waist of black checkerplate and matching black trimmings (awning, windows, doors, etc), at first glance, the Sirius could pass muster as a classy onroad tourer. But it only takes a second for the other features of the bright, shiny van - the ones that tell you this is, without a doubt, a tough, well-equipped and sturdy offroader - to hit you in the face.
