Much like Crusaders, the tourers bearing the plush Buccaneer brand were extensively revamped last season and proved very successful. As a result, changes are limited to details rather than being particularly substantial.

 

 

The biggest single change is the addition of a new layout, the Fluyt, which puts the fashionable twin-single bed, rear-washroom floor plan on a single-axle chassis for the first time in the Buccaneer.

 

 

Competitors to Buccaneer in the upmarket sector include Coachman VIP and Laser, Elddis Crusader and Lunar Delta. Niche producers AS Caravans and Vanmaster are viable alternatives, too.
