Ezytrail Parkes 15
The Ezytrail Parkes 15 is a compact, off-road, pop-top caravan that sleeps four. With a rear folding extension that increases the van’s footprint at camp, the main bed is a massive king size. There are two east-west bunk beds across the front, the bottom being a king single with the upper bunk a standard single. Both are full length, stretching the full width of the van, so this van is suitable for families with older children. The bunks tuck behind the onboard bathroom, creating a sense of privacy, and have their own reading light and window. The van has plumbed hot water to the shower and external slide-out kitchen. It has off-road-ready hardware including independent suspension, an AL-KO off-road hitch and 16in alloy wheels with dual spares.
