As one of the most anticipated arrivals in recent years, the BRS Offroad Pursuit Platinum hybrid was unveiled in Adelaide during December.
Bold is Gold
Unique in appearance, the BRS Pursuit series sets itself apart from the other ‘me-too’ hybrid campers. Beyond the bold appearance, it’s the quality of build and the long list of standard features and inclusions where it really shines.
The body is made of two distinct parts, a CNC cut and welded marine-plate alloy base and a once-piece hand laminated fibreglass cone roof. The alloy plate body extends from the midriff down, finished in Raptor protection paint. The composite fibreglass cone roof is 32mm thick with ample insulation to protect the interior against the heat and cold.
This design ensures greater structural integrity than competing products which use separate composite walls and roof panels. Not only do they have more joins, the composite panels on the lower flanks are more susceptible to road rash.
Offered in two models, the Pursuit is pitched at the premium off road buyer, with all the essentials for off road touring and a few extra comforts. It’s a versatile format with both internal and external cooking, internal refrigeration, a north-south queen bed, 234L water capacity, external shower, dual batteries, 320W roof mounted solar, external fridge slide, HD TV/DVD, Fusion stereo and more.
Underneath, it scores a Cruisemaster XT independent coil suspension and dual shockers per wheel, 17″ wheels, premium BFG tyres, alloy wheels and 12″ electric brakes.
The range topping Pursuit Platinum adds all the fruit, with an internal shower, reverse cycle air conditioning, gas heating, 900W microwave, a second internal drawer fridge (or freezer), a 200Ah Lithium battery pack with advanced monitoring, 1600W auto switching inverter, upgraded chargers, large dual zone external fridge freezer, full annex, bbq, 2.5t Level 3 Cruisemaster XT air suspension and a grey water tank. Surpisingly, it does this all at under 1600kg. Cruisemaster ATX coil or ATX air suspension is available as an option.
Stand Out Features
The Pursuit exudes quality in its fit and finish. We were blown away by the Australian hardwood benchtop, setting itself apart from anything in its class. If the hardwood doesn’t do it for you, there are a choice of laminates available.
