ZONE RV had the pleasure of building Greg Kernaghan, Maryen Cairns and their two children Elvis and Arwen, their ZF-22.6 Family Off-Road. Being an incredibly talented family band, this ZF-22.6 Family Off-Road now serves as their full-time home (and power supply for performances) as they travel around Australia promoting Femina Australis – 2017 National Tour of Remote Schools and Communities. Here’s a preview of the first leg of their tour…
When Greg and Maryen placed their order for a ZF-22.6 Family Off-Road, we knew it was the beginning of something very special. For starters, the family are musical royalty. Greg Kernaghan is a name we were already familiar with, given he was born into one of Australia’s most loved country music families, and Maryen Cairns is an international singer/songwriter in her own right. Then there’s their two children who, naturally, are also musically gifted. Elvis plays the electric guitar and writes his own music, and Arwen, a songbird who sings back up vocals with mum.
Then, we found out why they needed a serious off-road caravan with complete self-sufficiency. The family needed a mobile home to live in that would take them on their Femina Australis 2017 National Tour, which included an impressive itinerary covering remote schools and communities across QLD, NT and WA. What’s more, is they also needed the caravan to serve as their power supply during their performances and workshops.
The caravan was built to serve the family’s specific needs with 600W of solar power, 300L fresh water storage, creek water pull system, 3000W inverter charger, 2 x spare wheels, 2 x MAXTRAX, LandCruiser matched wheels, 4G Cel-Fi signal booster, full queen size bed and double-bunk with memory foam mattresses. While all models from our Family Series come standard with a FUSION Stereo System, TV/DVD and digital TV antenna, it came as no surprise that the family had no desire for the any of the entertainment features to be included, given they are the creators of their own entertainment!
