Apparently the 2019 Banff incorporates some improvements not provided in the 2018 model. You may want to make a comparison regarding their respective price and features before deciding which year model best suits you.

I bought a 2918 Banff last September and just turned the 10,000 km mark today. I love it, I love the open layout.
I just started a Carado Owners Group on facebook.
Feel free to join and ask questions

Interesting, seems as aluminum framing is penetrating B-class construction. Profile looks similar to the 8020 Quick Frame.

We're in process of getting a 2019. It does have the backup camera and improved radio with nav. We also got the volt start as an option.

Those are big improvements on the 2018.
I had to install an aftermarket nav/backup cam

The Banff is a Van One clone, but under the brand Carado (instead of Hymer). The Van One is crap. I looked at several. The fit/finish is absolutely horrible. BUT they can be had for $58K. The same as the Axion. I almost pulled the trigger on the Axiion, but the quality was just awful.
However, if you are going to do it, know that the 2019 Banff will offer VoltStart.
I recommend going over the exact van you’re considering with a fine tooth comb. Every one I’ve looked at had flimsy or broken parts, and the problems were different in each van I looked at.
I know this is a negative answer, but I hope it helps.

I just picked up a 2018 Banff so cannot speak to longevity. But the initial quality was actually very good. Itís not like a luxury brand car and isnít priced that way. The features and usefulness of the layout are what swayed us this way. The upgraded radio/back up cam on the 2019 was tempting but we were able to work a back up cam into the 2018 deal. Most of the time the upgraded radio systems are frustrating and we donít use half of the features. And we liked the fancy wheels on the 2018... Volt-start looks cool too but we werenít sure how much we would use it. And of course the 2019 pricing will be higher until later in 2019.

Interesting point on the Sunlight/Banff relationship. Our owners packet came in a Sunlight branded pouch.

I have a 2018 that I bought last fall. I love the open layout. The price is a lot less than other models, and I expect the quality may not be quite as good, but it does everything I need it to. I’m extremely happy with it.

Glad you enjoy your Banff, I decided to with the 2018 Banff also, it has everything I would need it also comes with rear camera and nav system the only thing it doesn't have is the volt start but I guess if my batteries happen to run done I could start the engine for a half hour lot cheaper then the volt system. Expect to take delivery the 20th July.
One thing I am surprised that it doesn't have is a outside cable or sat connection. But that shouldn't be a big job to do.
Will give update when I take delivery.

Cheers to all Joe
