The current Mater Cars for Cancer lottery gives you the chance to win ‘Beauty & the Beast’; the former a RAM 1500 DT Laramie and the latter the final word in off-road touring luxury, a Lotus Trooper caravan.
Lotus Caravans have been around since 2004, producing high-quality touring vans designed and built in Australia for Australian conditions. Their latest Trooper series is the final word in luxury, with all the conveniences of home and space for the whole family. This Beauty, along with the Beast—a RAM pick up to tow it with—could be yours if you grab a ticket in the Mater Cars for Cancer lottery No. 113, but hurry those tickets are selling fast.
Taking the kids on a caravanning holiday creates incredible memories, but families with more than the standard 2.0 kids can feel left out; or more correctly, one of the kids is left out. You’ve either got to bung them in a floppy annexe or convince them to go to grandmas. Not so with the Trooper on offer in lottery No. 113. With a full-size bed for the adults and triple bunks for everyone else, you can fit the 0.5 of your 2.5 kids right in there. If you don’t have that many grommets, then bring an extra one along for the ride!
Catering is a breeze as the kitchen area rivals those at home, with a Thetford gas oven and cooktop, full range hood, 25L microwave and contemporary matte black sinks, taps and other plumbing hardware. The drawers are residential-grade soft close items, and all cabinetry features Lotus Caravans’ unique interlocking system for strength and durability.
I could just imagine getting myself into the middle of nowhere and cooking up some rissoles, just like my Mum used to make, against a setting sun on a remote beach, and so could you, for the price of a ticket or two.
Of course, bunging together a tasty barbie for the whole family and sleeping in luxury is useless if the accommodation falls apart around you. Not gonna happen with the Lotus Caravans Trooper. These guys know how to make a caravan, starting with Lotus Caravans’ exclusive galvanised truss chassis, designed to take a beating off the beaten track.
The whole thing is suspended on Cruisemaster ATX suspension and custom wheels with all-terrain Cooper Tyres underneath, and the strongest frame on the market affixed atop. The frame, a hybrid of aluminium for the front, back and roof, combines the industry’s thickest timber wall construction to create a unit that is second-to-none for off-road longevity. Australia’s unique dust situation is addressed too with Lotus Caravans’ Dometic Dust Sealing System that ensures you don’t choke on the environment while trying to enjoy it!
This all makes for a heavy caravan, hence why Mater Cars for Cancer has paired the Beauty with a heavy-duty tow car—the Beast. If you can picture the RAM 1500 DT Laramie in your driveway, then picture the Lotus Caravans Trooper behind it and imagine the greatest getaway you can.
The entire prize package is worth a cool $330k including the modified RAM, luxurious Lotus Trooper, and $9,800 worth of cashable gold bullion. Securing a ticket in this fast-selling lottery is as easy as clicking the link. If you win, then Australia is yours for the taking; Cape York, Flinders Ranges, Monkey Mia, Wollemi, Kakadu, Walls of Jerusalem, Cathedral Ranges; pick a state, pick a destination, hop in the RAM, ‘put it in H’ (for Holiday) and go.
