The best off-road caravans in 2020 and 2021
Caravans designed to tackle the tracks others may fear to follow. The Trakmaster Airbag Suspension System delivers a smooth off-road ride, and when you stop for the night it can also be used to help level the caravan on uneven or sloping terrain.
Having a pop-top in the range is only one of the advantages this market leader has to offer and Jayco’s All Terrain model is a particularly practical way to begin roaming the great outdoors. There’s a Jayco that’s right for anyone who loves hitting the road.
The range of Coromal caravans has expanded and the Appeal models are both great examples of Aussie artistry. They feature lightweight full composite construction and the interiors are well laid-out, with plenty of storage and amenities.
The best entry-level caravans in 2020 and 2021
If you’re new to caravanning the quirky Avan A-Liner is a great place to start. It may look like a pyramid on wheels, but it expands to deliver plenty of room and amenities for four passengers under a gabled roof. It’s also light and easy to tow.
Weight is a weighty issue when you’re exploring rough and unfamiliar roads and tracks. That’s where the Rhinomax Lost Tracker stands out. It’s made from lightweight composite fibreglass and features a raked front to reduce towing drag.
