Motorhomes Caravans & Destinations


Looking tough and glamorous at the same time, the Victory Luxe 704 NZ caravan impresses Randall Johnston with its functional­ity, high-end features and out-and-out style.


The modern styling and sensible layout of this Australian­manufactur­ed caravan brings about a sense of satisfacti­on. The Victory Luxe 704 is an impressive mix of good styling with top-tier appliances and equipment. The layout is simple and intuitive; the bedroom is situated at the front, with the bathroom in the middle – effectivel­y serving as an ensuite.

The lounge and dining area is stylish and spacious. Plenty of windows means the space is well lit, the large sunroof above the dining area brings in even more light. The kitchen table is telescopic to create the additional double bed, thus giving this caravan the four-berth capability. A large number of storage lockers above the seating make good use of the space.

Appointed in the middle of the caravan, the modern kitchen includes a gas stovetop with four hobs (three gas and one electric), grill and huge oven. The under-counter lighting provides additional visibility and the 12v rangehood in the kitchen allows powerful fan extraction. The generously-sized 190-litre, full length three-way powered refrigerat­or-freezer, 240v microwave and relatively large stainless steel sink add to the convenienc­e.

The bedroom is generously sized with a queen size fixed bed and large windows on either side. Three large overhead lockers above the bed add to the functional­ity and good design in this space.

While contained within a fairly modest space, the bathroom stretches the full width of the caravan and is functional and well-appointed in the vehicle’s midsection. Many will like the fact that it serves as an ensuite, with direct access to the bedroom. There’s also a washing machine included.

With independen­t, equaliser rockerstyl­e leaf spring suspension and robust hot dip galvanised full grid box section chassis, the Luxe is built to handle unsealed roads without a problem, providing safe caravannin­g in off-road conditions when required. The exterior wall cladding is insulated and dentresist­ant ACM, making this unit harder to damage, giving the driver a bit more confidence on tight trails, as do the heavy duty all terrain tyres, with a spare on the rear.

The Victory Luxe 704 NZ caravan is a well-designed and very modern caravan. The rugged exterior, stylish looks and super-sleek finish will leave caravan enthusiast­s wanting for nothing while out and about on adventures.
