The Commander is Conqueror’s biggest exporter and it is packed with features with a “go anywhere your 4×4 can take it” attitude. The fully-patented independent suspension with coil springs, heavy duty shock absorbers and trailing arms offer enhanced stability and the suspension travel can be configured for maximum performance in on- and off-road conditions. It has an integral design for camber and tow-in adjustments with an auto reverse 2000kg coupler and run-in braking system. The stabiliser legs are also an integral part in the caravan’s design with no loose jacks or handles.
Body construction and strength is obtained by skeletal construction with cladding which minimises weight and all body parts are NC manufactured, ensuring easy interchangeability. All openings are fitted with automotive industry door seals and all parts are electro galvanised and epoxy coated. No wood, fibreglass or other degradable materials are used in construction, which eliminates wood rot, paint cracking and fatigue caused by tough off-road conditions.
Sleeping arrangements offers 2 double beds, 1 double bed and 1 single bed, or 3 single beds. Furniture and cupboards are manufactured from aliminium with unique fabric doors and there is ample storage all around the Commander. There are designated spaces for all the standard equipment, accessories and utensils provided. There is a large ergonomic nosecone housing 2 gas bottles, a pressurised water pump, a hot water geyser system and other essential articles.
