ROYAL FLAIR RAZOR XT REVIEW
Large offroad vans can be a challenge, but can a smaller one with all the necessary comforts?
Judging by what I see in many caravan dealer’s sales yards and at caravan shows, offroad caravans are becoming more popular. Those same vans also seem to be getting larger and higher off the ground. However, Royal Flair’s Razor XT is a step in the other direction.
The manufacturer produces a wide range of vans with all kinds of layouts. They have obviously given the aforementioned size issue a bit of thought because one of the newest vans is the Razor XT, designed mostly for RV travellers who desire all the caravan basics but prefer something that is light to tow — with an external body length of just 4.4m (14ft 6in), the XT certainly achieves that. There are two layouts available — front kitchen/rear bed and the opposite.
Australian Motor Homes & Caravans (AMHC) in Newcastle, NSW, is a Royal Flair dealer and is where I headed when AMHC marketing man Mat Perks advised me he had a bright yellow Razor XT 14ft 6in with a front kitchen that I might want to look at. He was right about the bright yellow bit, it is very difficult to miss in the crowd, and I did indeed want a closer look.
