Explorer Compass

Go-anywhere Compass is New Zealand's most compact complete motorhome. You will be amazed at what Explorer fits into the Compass. Everything you need and more, is on board. All you need is your adventurous spirit.
 
Compass Features

 

Look inside Compass and see how Explorer makes the compact footprint of just 5.65 metres long x 2.0 metres wide work so well as a complete motorhome. While Compass is the smaller of the two Explorer models, it offers you 1.95 metres standing height, plenty of space and every convenience to help you make the most memorable days of your life.

 

The slightly reduced dimensions (25cm shorter and 8cm narrower than Navigator) only impact marginally on overall interior space so, for most, the basic decision revolves around your bed size and how compact you want the overall size of your motorhome.

 

With the very practical rear dinette and lounge area, you can take in the best views from the large double glazed windows in absolute comfort. There’s a great sense of space and light created by the open layout.

 

One of the exclusive features of both Explorers is the low entry to the luton bed above the cab. It takes just one wide step up to the large airy space with 850mm sitting headroom and a better-than-double permanent bed. Opening windows at each end of the luton bed with built-in insect screens, offer good ventilation. It's a very cosy and comfortable place to be all year round.

 

If you're accommodating four, pull-out slats convert the rear dinette into another bed for two. This cleverly concealed system is simple and easy to set up and store away.

 

We only use high quality lightweight plywood joinery with a blonded timber finish for the onboard joinery. There’s ample storage in drawers, cupboards, wardrobe and under the side dinette seats. Everything is well positioned and has its rightful place.

 

Compass has a well-specified galley kitchen with everything you need to prepare great holiday meals. There’s a 3-gas/
1-electric hob cooktop and grill. It also features a large 136L (12V/240V) fridge/freezer as standard so food storage is never a problem. Other features in the galley include the stainless steel sink with folding hot/cold tap and
flush-mounting glass lid, lift-up bench extension, a slimline extractor range hood and generous storage to keep everything stored securely when travelling.

 

The bathroom is fully moulded for easy cleaning and is well ventilated with an opening roof skylight. The toilet is the latest electric flush, bench style Thetford C400 cassette system. There’s also a corner basin with hot/cold single lever tap and extension shower hose on a slide rail.

 

Compass has fresh water capacity of 95 litres and grey water capacity of 80 litres. Both tanks are fitted with monitors. All Explorer Compass motorhomes are Certified Self Contained.

 

And finally, the Compass rear boot locker provides particularly spacious storage for everything you want to bring along.  At 1550mm long x 420mm deep and 530mm high it’s big enough for golf clubs, skis or fishing rods.

 

Explorer Compass really is the whole package. All you need to do is decide where you're off to!

PRICING

There are so many variables when it comes to pricing a new motorhome. Every Explorer starts with either a base model Compass or Navigator. We find that individual clients request a wide range of individual options from our list of options which makes quoting a price for everyone difficult. There are also component price variations from time to time. The following prices are indicative prices only built on a Ford Ranger Automatic 4WD chassis without any options.

Explorer Compass $135,000
Explorer Navigator $148,000


Please do not hesitate to ask us for a quote refined with your individual options included.
