Avida is launching the new Esperance Motorhome range in Australia and New Zealand. The first public viewing of the new Esperance will be at the South Australian Caravan and Camping Show held at the Adelaide Showgrounds from February 20 until February 24, 2013
The Avida Esperance range of motorhomes incorporates advanced, state of the art technology packaged in a brand new motorhome design all at an extremely competitive sale price…and they can be driven on a standard car licence or upgraded to a Light Rigid licence for greater carrying capacity.
The Esperance offers stylish, comfortable and yet extremely functional living for short trips away and for those long exploratory journeys to the far flung reaches, from shore to shore, experiencing the joy of adventure, revelling in the sensation of freedom, just relaxing in the comforts of everything that the Esperance model range has to offer.
Avida is a 100% Australian owned and operated company, experienced in building motorhomes designed for the harsh Australian road and climatic conditions since 1965.
The Esperance is available in three styles. The upmarket A class Esperance offering as standard, everything that a motorhoming enthusiast could dream of, The low profile B Class model and the high profile C Class model with additional space over the cabin, offer a choice in size, living area and bedding and all are expansively and luxuriously equipped with air-conditioning for cooling and heating, supplemented by a ducted furnace heating system.
The list of standard features is endless, externally, the large roll out awning, entertainment unit, a generator storage locker with slide, an external shower, BBQ fitting and extensive external storage amongst others.
Each Esperance motorhome is fully self-contained to visit those out of the way places with all the comforts of home, carrying fresh water on board for showering or washing or for flushing the domestic style porcelain bowl toilet.
Twin gas bottles provide LP gas for cooking, cooling the refrigerator when mains power is unavailable, and for heating water. Esperance generates sufficient power itself to operate lighting, the television and other appliances without the need to “plug in”. The 21st century state of the art LCD electrical control panel monitors all power systems and even provides temperature readings, inside and out.
Upon entering the Esperance, the thought given to the interior design is immediately apparent. The new colour coordinated furniture and fabrics are pleasing to the eye, a choice of 13 different trims are available in each model, and the feeling of space is all pervading, complimented by stylish curved furniture, extensive kitchen bench tops and room to move.
The luxury Esperance Premium is a unique and distinctive luxury 8 metre (26’) A class motorhome offering standard inclusions such as a build in 2.3Kva Onan generator, roof solar panels, electric awning and entry steps, soft ultra-leather trimming, air conditioning and ducted heating as standard, the list just goes on.
Most of the Esperance models are spacious 8 metre (26’) motorhomes in both the low profile (B Class) and high profile (C Class) styles offering a walk around island bed and an extended living area provided by the electrically operated slide out lounge room incorporating a sumptuous contoured lounge.
The lounge also offers dining facilities and provides additional seatbelts for passengers wishing to travel in style back in the motorhome, taking advantage of the panoramic display offered by the large lounge room window, or just taking in a DVD on the large LCD Television.
Esperance is available as a versatile 7.2 metre (24’) motorhome in both low profile (B Class) and high profile (C Class) styles with the ever popular space saving Electric Roll Down queen size bed and the unique contoured club lounge, These model layouts incorporate all the style, equipment and innovation that is expected in this style of motorhome.
Avida has chosen to match the Esperance with the robust and reliable Iveco 50C17 Chassis, a proven package offering extremely economical operating costs from the 3 litre turbo diesel engine generating an impressive 125kw (170hp) of power, the smooth six speed manual or the automated manual transmission offering automatic gear changes or, at the flick of the wrist, the control of a clutch less manual gearbox.
There is an overwhelming sense of comfort in the cabin. Power windows, power steering, air conditioning and cruise control boost the enjoyment of extended journeys.
Enjoy the features offered by the exclusive centrally located infotainment system with its large colour LCD screen providing GPS navigation, FM/AM radio and CD operation and importantly, vision behind the motorhome as you are reversing.
Avida has employed innovative construction techniques to create an extremely strong motorhome capable of coping with the varying road conditions Australia has to offer, yet reducing the overall weight to allow the Esperance, a large motorhome, to be legally driven on a standard car licence.
The Esperance can be upgraded to a GVM of 5200kg to LR licence category for greater carrying capacity. The motorhome body is structurally supported by a strong metal frame which incorporates thick insulating material in all walls, the floor and the roof effectively reducing road noise to a whisper and protecting the occupants from those extreme temperatures.
The floor is supported by the numerous steel cross members welded to the chassis; the underside of the floor is protected by metal sheeting, to withstand year after year, the mud, dirt, rocks, and water thrown up by the roads
The walls of the motorhome are located on top of the floor, not just attached to the side of the floor. The roof then sits on top of the walls thus the overall load is shared, creating a strong, robust motorhome body capable of withstanding the movement of a motorhome travelling on a range of road conditions.
The roof is domed to allow for swift water runoff and is covered by a hardy EDPM rubber membrane capable of withstanding harsh climatic conditions year after year, and with up to 100mm of insulation material built into the roof structure, climatic protection is well provided to the occupants.
All Esperance Motorhomes offer the peace of mind that each motorhome is supported by a national network of trained Avida Dealerships throughout Australia and New Zealand
A factory backed comprehensive warranty is provided with each Esperance motorhome including a 5 year structural guarantee and a national emergency roadside assistance program which will look after you no matter where you are travelling is provided absolutely free.
