CAM Plutus Caravan 1

This one’s for those bitten by the travel bug but still prefer to stay on the roads. China Auto Manufacturers (CAM) has officially launched the CAM Caravan here in Malaysia with a price tag of RM206,890 on-the-road inclusive of registration and GST.

Billed as the first locally-built caravan in Malaysia, the CAM Caravan is based on the Plutus pick-up truck, a longtime workhorse that is marketed and sold by the Klang-based CAM, with 4×2 and 4×4 double cab versions available.

The caravan adopts the same 2.8 litre turbodiesel engine paired to a manual transmission. Safety features available on the mobile home include ABS with EBD, anti-glare rear view camera and rear reverse sensor.

However, the main draw of the Plutus Caravan is its motorhome portion that effectively occupies every inch of the pick-up’s flatbed space. This is to ensure that it can accommodate all the necessary fittings and equipment for mobile living.

Inside, you’ll find wood furniture that includes an overhead double bed and cabinet, plus a single folding sofa bed. Other ammenities include air-conditioning, a bathroom, kitchen and a portable toilet. To power the direct current (DC) electrical equipment, the caravan comes with an external power supply adapter, along with a ten-metre long wire for connection.

On the mention of power, a 100 Ah maintenance-free battery can last for 48 hours under normal usage after being charged for four to five hours. There is also a water and electricity indicator so owners to keep track of their current levels.
