The Wendekreisen Koru Star 4 Freedom Campervan has been designed for freedom camping off the grid with up to four adults. It is beyond doubt competing to be New Zealands best non-composite 4 berth campervan.
The VW Crafter has been upgraded to a 130KW engine and offers a range of safety features such as side wind compensation, autonomous emergency braking, collision warning assist and active 360° sensor side protect. The Crafter complies with the EU6 emission standard and is extremely economical at 8l/100km.
The 4-seat front configuration enables all passengers to travel together in close vicinity. It also serves as an area to socialise or have meals whilst the rear beds are set up. Tinted windows improve privacy and support good sleep in combination with quality curtains.
Standard features include an on-board touch screen with reversing camera, a pull-out pantry, a full bathroom (with handbasin), a 130l fridge, decent kitchen bench space, a 3-burner gas cooker with sink and ample storage.
In line with previous productions in the freedom range, we have added a powerful 280-watt MPPT controlled solar system. Three 1440 watt quality deep cycle batteries provide a massive 4.3 kilowatt hours of in-house battery storage.
The hot water is powered by a heat exchanger, connected to the vehicle cooling system. There is no need for gas or any other fuel to heat water. Once the engine reaches operating temperature, the in-house water will be hot for a period of up to 24 hours.
The vehicle is equipped with USB and 12V power supplies to allow modern ways of charging your handheld devices. The combination of energy efficient appliances and LED lighting results in extremely good energy performance whilst freedom camping.
Additionally, we have installed a 2.2KW diesel heating system. This allows for more energy storage and reduces the need to refill LPG gas bottles. The diesel heating system is connected to the 75l diesel tank and uses an average of 300ml per hour of heating.
Overall, this vehicle offers safe transport at little fuel expense, designed for independent camping away from costly campgrounds.
Please note that we will commence building these vehicles from July 2019. As such there may be some minor changes to the specifications listed on this page.
This vehicle is certified self contained in accordance with New Zealand Standard 5465:2001.
