Australian Made Hybrid Campers

The Hybrid Caravan and Camper market has exploded beyond belief today, and it seems like every man and his dog has jumped on selling them.

However, there’s a lot of companies that are importing the vans and selling them as ‘Australian made’, and I’d refer to that as unethical behaviour. By all means import what you want, but just because its sold by an Australian business doesn’t make the product Australian.

How do you know if the Hybrid Camper is made in Australia, or just sold in Australia?

If the last few years has shown anything its that imported hybrid camper trailers absolutely have a market, and there’s a lot of happy owners (and many that aren’t happy too).

If you are in the market for a hybrid camper trailer, we have a hugely comprehensive guide that you can read here; The ultimate guide to buying a hybrid camper.

In this post, we look at all of the Australian Made Hybrid Caravans/Campers, and we start off with those that are partially, or primarily made overseas.

Please know there are some grey areas here, as a company could import 95% of the parts, and build it here. Would it then be an imported good, or an Australian made one?

Also, there’s not necessarily a rhyme or reason with picking the best Australian made hybrid campers. Price alone is not always a reflection of quality and design, and we’d highly recommend you spend a long time sussing out every individual model that you think might be suitable.

This post is done for no other reason than to pass on information. You might not care where its made, and there’s nothing wrong with that either. Some people do care, and very much so.

I’ve listed them all in alphabetical order, so you can find them quickly.

  1. Hey Vicki,

    I don’t for sure, but you could ring and ask. My best guess, by looking at them online quickly and the fact that they say they are Australian operated (and not Australian built), would be that they are another imported option.

    All the best

  2. Do you know if Boss are made in Australia?

  3. Hi Margo,

    I’m pretty sure these are not Australian made. I can’t comment on their quality, but you could join a few Facebook groups and ask around.

    All the best

    Hardkorr hybrids Qld. Looking at one

  5. Hey Karin,

    Thanks for that. I hadn’t heard of them before!

    Take care

  6. Hi
    Wondering if you are aware of the bushranger joey?
    Thanks in advance

  7. Hey Bill,

    I’ve heard of all 3, but don’t know a huge amount about them. Looking online the Ecotourer is built in China, but I think the Goldstream and Golf are made in Australia.

    They would all probably come under the hybrid classification.

    I’m not sure how durable they would be for endless corrugations or more serious 4WD tracks, but they look like a decent alternative for some of the market

    All the best

  8. Gidday Aaron, are you able to comment on ecotourer, goldstream pop tops, and the golf savannah. I would classify these as hybrids.

  9. Hey Tim,

    I haven’t heard of some of those. Track trailer is on the list as Australian made.

    Lyfe RV and Simplicity look to be Australian made.

    Far Horizon, Platinum, Long Haul and Signature look to begin their lives in China.

    Wandering say they are Australian made, but again, not 100% sure.

    If I was keen on getting something 100% Australian made, I’d ring the supplier and ask is the unit built from scratch in its entirety in Australia. Many are designed and tested here, but built elsewhere, and given a final touch up before being sold off here.

    All the best

  10. Just a few others – do you know much about these, as to whether they are Aussie or Chinese?

    Long Haul
    Lyfe RV
    Track Trailer

  11. Hey Kim,

    I haven’t heard anything about them, but they look exactly the same as the Jawa, MDC, Mars, Prime etc, which all come from China

    All the best

  12. Any information on the TRex 13 van? Can’t find where made or any reviews as yet. Cheers

  13. Hey Aaron

    I think they may be made in SA


  14. Hey Luke,

    Very interesting; never seen or heard of them before, but they look pretty neat. DO you know where their factory is?

    All the best

  15. Have a look at Offline Campers, currently tossing up between their Domino or a TVan.
