offroad caravan owners beachKimberley have built over 800 off-road caravans since 2006. You can have confidence when you buy a new Kimberley Karavan because you are buying a tried, tested and proven off-road caravan.

In case you aren’t aware, Kimberley hold an international patent over the slide-out and unfold action of the Kimberley Karavan.

The Kimberley Karavan Off-road Caravan Core Design Vision
We started out with a vision for a lightweight off-road caravan that could essentially go anywhere your 4WD can go and transform into a large accommodation when you arrived.
We have evolved this vision with plenty of customer feedback and travel experience now that the Karavan has been over every possible off road track in Australia.

The Kimberley Karavan is the only off road caravan that:
  1. is no wider than the 4WD and can match most 4WD wheels and tyres
  2. is similar height to a 4WD and stays low with split air-conditioner meaning it can fit in most garages as well
  3. has an inside shower and toilet
  4. has instant hot water and can pump from a stream or billabong directly for endless hot water
  5. has an outside full kitchen and second fridge drawer
