Confidently continue the camping lifestyle with E2S, the very first Emu RV by Nova

Taking the ‘next step’ with a familiar brand? Nova RV weaves its magic in a motorhome format for the very first time in the brand-new Emu RV by Nova line.

The E2S, a two-seater 6m Fiat Ducato conversion, kicks off the Series available exclusively through Emu RV with more models in the pipe-line.

So how much living can you fit in a car space? Let’s find out.

FIRST LOOK

On entry, via an electric step, everything is brightly lit and feels surprisingly spacious for its size with driver and passenger seats that swivel around. 

The reflective head-height cupboards are set back providing a good compromise between storage and perceived space in its 2m girth. The van’s 193cm interior (a little over 6ft 3in) suits many but could be a deal breaker if you’re tall.

LEATHER-TRIM LUXURY

The plush furnishings, soft-close drawers and climate control are stand out features. But you’ll also find pleasing comforts like the ¾ height mirror for when you’re dining in town.

While hooks, book pockets and small shelves with outlets for powering devices help keep you organised at camp.

COOKING COMFORTS

The kitchenette includes a three-burner cooktop, filtered water and a microwave set at a reasonable height. Benchtop space is limited but the flip-up bench extension and the cooktop and sink lids help a lot.

Notably, there’s a 175L compressor fridge–it’s efficient and large–boosting flexibility when you’re skipping town. Nova RV and EMU RV claim it’s the biggest you’ll find in this size motorhome.

YEAR-ROUND COMFORTS

The compact kitchen allows for the shower-toilet ensuite. The one-piece cubicle with a basin and ceramic toilet bowl is easy to clean and comes with an efficient ducted gas heating outlet, which is great for year-round travellers and helps keep the area dry.

A smart addition in a combination shower-toilet configuration.

OFF-THE-GRID READY

The E2S is an on-road vehicle but there’s sufficient off-the-grid capacity, with 120L freshwater and 50L of grey water storage. 

Power wise, the E2S features a 12V 105Ah battery with twin 120Ah lithiums optionally available. A 240V/12V 30A battery charger and a 120W solar charging system top up the battery wherever you are. While the Intelli RV 300 Electronic control panel keeps you informed.

CONVERTIBLE DINING/BEDROOM

Out back, the dining table and two large lounges that convert to a bedroom at night. This great compromise requires little adjustment, removing a few cushions reveals twin single beds, one measuring 192cm and another 188cm. Or, you can spend a few minutes more, lowering the table for a wall-to-wall bed.

This layout allows access to the van’s rear doors, which is great when you’re packing, stopping for a pleasant mid-trip break, or setting up at a pretty site.

UNDER THE BONNET

Caravanners equipped with a standard vehicle license will easily handle the E2S’s Fiat Ducato dimensions. The Euro 6D 2.3L turbo-diesel engine delivers 160 horsepower smoothly via a fully automatic nine-speed gearbox.

The notable safety package includes emergency braking and lane departure warnings, hill holder and rain sensing wipers. You’re well informed too, with navigation, reverse camera and parking sensors and a blind spot assist improving visibility.

 

FINAL WORD

If you’re ready to leave the caravan behind but not done travelling, the E2S Emu RV by Nova is a real charmer. It’s designed for full-time living, providing sufficient sleeping quarters, ensuite facilities and a neat little kitchen with ample comforts year-round.
