Those who know the freedom that goes with roads less travelled have already met the Xplorer, from Jurgens Safari.
Tough as teak, it allows you to travel where it’s rough yet have superb luxury and comfort when you arrive.
Now Jurgens Safari are releasing the Xplorer Xcell, for those who wish to invest a little less but enjoy the adventure even more.
Looking only at the dimensions of the Xplorer Xcell, there’s no difference. But this new and exciting model is absolutely perfect for the mom and dad who have one or two children. That’s because there is a double bed for kids, in the front end of the Xplorer Xcell, while mom and dad have a side double bed that converts to a daytime four-seat dinette for the family.
Another big difference is that while the Xplorer has a door either side, the Xplorer Xcell has just the one door. It’s on the same side as the superbly neat slide-out kitchen with two-burner stove and kitchen sink with hot and cold running water. The kitchen unit is on roller bearings, so it slides in and out really smoothly and easily.
To help keep the price down, the kitchen has no fridge/freezer, though it’s an optional extra many people will choose to have.
Next difference is that there is no front hatch, where the Xplorer has the Stargazer unit. Instead, there is a standard window.
Like the Xplorer, the Xplorer Xcell comes with more nice-to-haves. Awning, outside table, Porta-Pottie storage, insect screens on door and windows, a pair of 25-litre jerry cans, privy tent with pull-out shower handle, water bottle with pump and level indicator, two gas bottles and regulator - the list goes on. And yes, it includes the pop-up roof with insect-screen surround and dust pressure hatch that Xplorer owners appreciate so much.
Dad will be pleased to know about the front and rear bush bars, the heavy-duty jockey wheel with removable bracket clamp, the heavy-duty axle with rubber torsion independent swing-arm suspension ... He’ll also want to know that the gross vehicle mass is 1650 kg while the tare is 1256 kg, giving a very useful payload of 394 kg. Of course, dad will be aware of the requirement regarding mass of the tow vehicle, or he can ask his local Jurgens Safari dealer.
The new Jurgens Safari Xplorer Xcell was on view at the Pretoria Show for the first time and proved to be big a hit.
