Explorer Navigator

Navigator offers you all-round comfort and an enviable build quality. The permanent queen-sized luton bed is by far one of the biggest, most comfortable and easiest to access of its kind. On road and off, Navigator is the ideal New Zealand motorhome.

The perfect motorhome in a very clever package


Navigator offers you all-round comfort and robust build quality from one of New Zealand’s best equipped motorhomes within a compact footprint. At just 6 metres long x 2.08 metres wide Navigator is just as easy to drive as a large saloon.

Navigator offers the very practical rear dinette and lounge area with generous space for lounging about with your favourite book and refreshments or sounds from Navigator’s stereo system. Explorer’s rectangular dining table provides a comfortable entertaining area for four with a large roof skylight allowing plenty of light and ventilation.

The exclusive feature of Navigator is the low entry to the luton bed above the cab. This permanent bed is a class-leading queen size measuring 1.5m wide x 2.0m long for those who are a bit taller or enjoy a generous relaxing and sleeping space.

It takes just one step up to the large airy space with sitting headroom. Opening windows at each end of the luton bed with built-in insect screens and blinds, offer good ventilation. You’ll find it hard to find another motorhome with space that matches.

If you’re accommodating four, there’s another pull-out double bed for two in the rear dinette. This cleverly concealed system is simple and easy to set-up and stow away.

High quality lightweight plywood joinery with a blonded timber finish gives Navigator interiors a very stylish and hard wearing finish. There’s ample storage in soft-close galley drawers, cupboards, wardrobe and under the side dinette seats.

Navigator has a well-specified galley kitchen with an extra pop-up bench and pull out pantry. With a gas oven and 3-burner gas hob you have everything you need to prepare any kind meal even including oven roasts. It also features a large 130L fridge/freezer (12V/240V) which gives you absolute freedom to be off the grid for extended periods.

Other features in the galley are a stainless steel sink with folding hot/cold tap and flush-mounting glass lid, pop-up bench extension, a slimline extractor range hood and generous storage to keep everything stored securely while you’re underway.

The bathroom is easy-to-clean, fully moulded acrylic 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. A mirrored vanity cabinet for additional storage and a useful pull-out drying rack are also included.

Navigator has fresh water capacity of 110 litres and grey water capacity of 70 litres. Both tanks are fitted with monitors. All Explorer Navigator motorhomes are Certified Self Contained.

And outside, the Navigator rear boot locker provides more storage for everything you want to bring along like a BBQ, chairs and tools or your golf clubs, skis or fishing rods.

Explorer Navigator is fully equipped and ready for you to head off in any direction knowing that it just doesn’t get any better. Start your adventure today.

Navigator Standard Specifications


There are so many variables when it comes to pricing a new motorhome. Every Explorer starts with a base model 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 Navigator $183,000

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

Explorer’s optional electrical system delivers better performance and therefore much greater opportunity and peace-of-mind for you to be off the grid for longer.


Lithium batteries can endure up to ten times more charge cycles than the equivalent-sized lead acid battery, can be fully discharged and be recharged in 3–4 hours.

The heart of the Redarc RedVision system is a battery management unit that operates like six separate products; a DC-to-DC battery charger when the vehicle is on the move, a 240-volt 30-amp mains charger, a 30-amp MPPT solar regulator, a starting battery isolator, a load disconnect controller and a battery monitor.
