Wonderland XRT 2200
Review by Alison Huth
When you review a caravan, you take lots of notes, photos and information on what there is in the caravan. But, there is one way that I really like and that is to talk to someone who has a caravan. It is even better when they own the exact caravan I want to review.
I was at the Brisbane Caravan and Camping Supershow in June and made my way to the Wonderland RV stand. The caravans had come from their Queensland Dealer Aussie Escape Caravans in Brendale, run by Andrew and Jessica Bruce. They had included their own Wonderland XRT 2200 as a display caravan, so I sat in the van with Jessica to find out what she really liked about her van.
It is a family model, with the queen bed at the front of the van and extra long bunks at the back to fit the two kids, one of whom is already over 6ft, and still has more growing to do. To fit in the extra bunk length, they added 2inches to the overall length, so their van is 22ft 2inches long.
Jessica said they had added more space into the en-suite, with a separate shower (with pulsating shower head) and a porcelain toilet – her preferred style. They have also fitted in a Camec front loader washing machine, all the time still keeping a spacious feel.
In the kitchen there is a full Swift 500 series oven, 2 pull out pantries, and plenty of other cupboards and drawers. As a family they like the L shaped seating, with a foot-rest on the short side of the ‘L’. The full table will slide out so that it is easy to get three people onto the long ‘L’.
As you would expect there is a huge fridge, and this is one of the biggest I have ever seen. The kitchen is also home to one of the things that Jessica really loves, and that is the instant hot water tap. There are two taps at the sink, one is the instant hot water tap and the second is from a separate tank with an inbuilt filter. The instant hot water also works in the shower. The water temperature is set using the on-board management system in an easy to reach cupboard over the L shaped seating.
