The term off road caravans is one that many consumers use when considering a new caravan or camper for their holiday adventures, but are you really going to risk damage to your new van or tow vehicle by going bush bashing across open land as the term off road suggests. Or are you really looking for a product that can better cope with the occassional dirt road when accessing those remote campites you have read or hear about. Not many of us have the bravery or even desire to explore as Burke and Wills did, risking extensive damage to your newly acquired caravan and 4x4.
Avan realises this and approaches things a little more sensibly by considering the needs of it's customers based on 25+ years of listening to their needs. If you are the more adventurous caravan enthusiast, buying a van that's capable of handling rougher off highway conditions is the perfect choice for you. However it's essential to do your homework before making your purchase and consider the claims made by manufacturers for off road caravans carefully before handing over your hard earnt money for something that you may never use, besides the considerable cost of a caravan that is truly built for bush bashing.
Currently on the market there are loads of manufacturers claiming their RV’s are suitable for semi or off road conditions, so it may be hard to cut through the confusion and make the right choice. The first thing is to determine how you’ll be using the van, so you can decide what features are essential. With many years experience in the industry our sales team have the knowledge to help you make an educated choice.
If you are looking for a van to explore those harder to reach camping spots and want to be self sufficient for longer, then we have a range of RV’s to suit.
