The Quest Rubicon fits the “hybrid” classification yet some may wish to call it a small offroad pop-top. It is available in both dual single or queen bed configurations, the latter being the variant on test.
From the ground up this rugged unit is meant for business. She’s built on a tough chassis that will handle the stresses of long range and offroad touring. It rides on the popular AL-KO Enduro fully-independent trailing arm suspension with heavy-duty shock absorbers, Australian-made 4WD coil springs, maintenance-free bushes,12in electric brakes with attractive alloy mags and 15in all-terrain tyres. This steed has very good ground clearance combined with defined relief angle at the rear making it almost go-anywhere vehicle.
The comfort starts with the main body of the camper. The roof pops open very easily on its cantilevered lifts, and closes even easier! There’s also a tonne of ventilation with zippered screens and fine fly-mesh on every wall, and an array of LED down-lights to make life easy.
At the rear is a most comfortable queen-sized bed that invited well-cozy hibernation from the icy cold nights. It has a thick inner-spring mattress, padded bedhead, individual lighting options, more overhead cabinetry and even a TV/DVD player and radio/Bluetooth sound-system.
It’s hard not to fall in love with the Rubicon QT, this is a really comfortable camper with a tonne of facilities enhanced by terrific ergonomics with a lovely finish combined with premium fittings and accessories.
The Quest RV Rubicon QT is priced at $49,990.
