Topaz Topaz / Re: Full Annexe
« Last post by Harry Lissimore on December 17, 2018, 05:14:01 PM »
I've used it a few times, mainly when I set up for a week or two in the one place.  It's a lot more stable than the wind out awning but more time consuming to put up.  The wind out awning instructions say to not use it in windy conditions.

If I'm on the move and only stopping overnight in places, I tend to try to set up with the door facing east so the Topaz will provide shade in the afternoon to the area where the awning would be and for the roll out fridge hence no need to even roll the awning out.

If I'm staying for 24 hours, then I would probably put the roll out awning out.  If it's a little windy, I would not put it fully out.

If it's raining, then I would put the roll out awning out and put the sail out because it helps shelter the roll out BBQ.

The full annex including all the walls is good if others are staying with you - it makes another room, and provides all weather shelter. it is also bigger than the roll out awning - more shelter.

I also bought the complete annex so that the Topaz would be complete for resale.

Track will not add diesel heater/hot water units to Tvans which didn't have them from the initial build but many people have added a diesel heater to one of the side panniers afterwards.

We just have a portable diesel heater and only take it when it's needed. Saves space that way.

Rob,

The Mk 4 came with 60watt panel on the roof and the mK5 has 120 now. But mine also has 200watts on the rear hatch.

I think there is some difference in the deck and how trhe tent is attached, but I haven't inspected the Mk5 very closely.

I believe the hot water can be added but you would need to confirm with Track, personally we just boiled a kettle or used the aqua cube to heat it.

What kind of pictures do you want to see?

Regards

Aidan

Hi Aidan,

I was in Sydney on friday looking at brand new ones for the first time.

Can you tell me besides the solar panel size what the differences are at all?

Does this also not have the heater option and are these things that can be added if I wanted them?

Also can I see any pictures?

Thanks,
Rob

Topaz Topaz / Re: Topaz internal shower
« Last post by Rob M on December 16, 2018, 10:51:43 AM »
I agree with Harry’s comment re weight. It is a fine line with the Topaz now and some major changes would be required to reduce existing weight or up the axle load carrying capacity.
The other question for us is “ Do we want an internal Shower and Toilet?”
We carefully considered all options when we purchased the Topaz. Our preference was to have the internal kitchen and living space over the shower and toilet. If we wanted the internal shower and toilet we would have gone to another brand.
Having moved up from a TVan we still wanted to get into relatively remote Bush areas and National Parks. The Topaz allows this.
We enjoy the flexibility the current set up gives and don’t find setting up the en-suite a chore. In remote bush locations you don’t need it. Gives the feeling of still camping. ( although in luxury.)

Thanks Andrew. Yes done that. I suspect I have an air leak somewhere on the suction side.

If they make it bigger, I would be very interested in the tare weight and the total trailer weight as I have been told that they cannot increase the total weight with the current suspension!  Let's see what comes!  I do know though that these days the GVM is being monitored by transport departments and all trailers and their makers will be accountable.

Rar110,
Just a thought on your water supply to the sink. If you have a faucet like the one attached it has a valve on the end. Rotate it to let the water flow.
Cheers Andrew
