Jurgens is a name that has been synonomous with caravans for over 55 years but mostly in South Africa. After a couple of attempts at importing, Jurgens Australia decided to manufacture in Australia and after officially opening in April 2008 now have a full range of well built light weight caravans for Australian conditions.
The Jurgens Rascal is a light weight pop top caravan ideally suited to smaller tow vehicles. Its ATM of only 1200kg places it within the reach of a wide selection of small to mid size family sedans. It is however of strong construction with a combination of the CNC fabricated chassis and composite walls which makes for a very strong caravan with excellent towing characteristics.
Externally the Rascal certainly has clean lines and in a way matches its name. It is quite stylish in the flesh and with the pop top has a relatively low wind resistance. Overall the feeling is one of openess even though it is a small caravan.
