Please note that we are currently manufacturing the Koru Star 3 Freedom. The finalised specifications below may vary slightly.
The Koru Star 3 Freedom is the upgraded version of its predecessor and based on the VW Crafter 35. Whilst the features and dimensions are almost identical, the crafter offers advanced technology in terms of road safety and damage protection. The onboard composition media touchscreen with 360-degree protection system will warn you prior to hitting obstacles. The passenger airbag can be disabled when travelling with young children in rear-facing car seats.
There are two bedding configurations available, depending on your preferences. Option A includes the combination of a double bed plus one single bed. This configuration is designed for a family setup with parents and a child. The safety net protects your child whilst mum and dad can relax or watch a movie below. Option B features a configuration with three single beds, ideal for accommodating up to three adult friends. The ability to sleep 3 adults separately, offers economy and comfort when camping the outdoors.
A 340W solar and MPPT controller as well as a 2.88KWh battery power bank, ensure you never go flat, thus eliminating the dependence on powered campsites. To provide warmth during the night, we've integrated a robust 2KW Webasto diesel heater, coupled with lanolin-soaked sheep wool insulation. Sheep wool insulation has natural moisture repelling properties that make it resistant to mould growth. The lanolin present in sheep wool acts as a natural repellent to pests such as moths and dust mites. Furthermore, we have installed various USB and 12V outlets in the sleeping area. The rear windows as well as the window in the sliding door can be opened. In combination with an additional roof hatch, this vehicle offers excellent ventilation.
The Koru Star 3 Freedom is fully certified self-contained, compliant with current and future rules under this certification. Consequently, this vehicle will not only help you save a significant amount on powered campsite expenses but also enable exploration of remote areas in New Zealand.
Standard features include the Avtex 19’ TV paired with the Avtex Bluetooth soundbar (perfect for music enthusiasts), a generously sized pull-out pantry, soft ambient LED night lighting, and extensive storage options. A large and energy friendly 90L fridge delivers sufficent space to keep your food chilled whilst travelling off-grid.
The hot water is produced by an instantaneous gas system which will deliver hot water on demand as needed. This system is designed for campervans, easy to use and very economical on gas.
This campervan was designed to deliver a compact and off-grid family solution with separated accommodation for one young child. An alternative use application is compact and economical accommodation for three adults in separate beds.
This vehicle is certified self contained in accordance with New Zealand Standard 5465:2001.
