It seems more and more brands of, off-road caravans are appearing on the Aussie market.
But where are these new rugged and off-roaders built? So, in this article we have compiled a list of what off-road caravans are made in Australia.
Off-road vans allow more couples and families to travel the dirt tracks, rougher country roads and explore more places not suitable for the average caravan.
A while ago we wrote an article on – What Caravans Are Made In Australia? But since then, some companies have starting produce just a few select models in Australia, but the other models are made overseas in China.

Check out the caravan forums for problems, complaints, lemons to avoid and the reviews of the models. The forums are also a good place to find some second-hand caravans for sale and good prices.

(Every endeavour has been made to ensure the list of Aussie made off-road caravans and information is accurate. However, sometimes we get it wrong, or the manufacturer changes their production practices. So please double check with the manufacturer if it is built in Australia.)
The brands and new models look fantastic for Australian made. Hybrids, light weight models, extreme off-road caravans are really taking off with demand.
If you are looking to buy a new van or off roader, check the camping and caravanning forums to ensure the brand and model you are looking at isn’t a lemon. Unfortunately even if the caravan is made right here in Oz, some can still give you headaches and problems and need new replacement parts.
Check the fine print about what exactly is covered by the warranty.
I hope we haven’t missed any Aussie off road van manufactures out there.
It is great to see so many off road caravans being made in Australia.
