Best off road caravans Australia – 2024 update

Best off road caravans Australia with a bathroom

Some of the most beautiful places around Australia, can only be reached at the end of a long, dusty and very bumpy road… and that’s if there’s even a road at all!

And it’s for places like this that an off road caravan becomes very appealing.

The best off road caravans in Australia are robust, well made with high quality workmanship and attention to detail, high(er) ground clearance, articulating coupling and large departure angle.

And once your get to you campsite they are comfortable, warm (or cool) with many ammenities like a well equipped kitchen, space to relax and a full bathroom.

It’s a great way to travel and see more of Australia, but still have all the comforts, conveniences and luxuries of home.

If you’re looking for an off road caravan Australia, we’ve hunted the internet for some of the best off road caravans in Australia.

Just be aware that all manufacturers classify their caravans differently and there is no set rules for what makes a caravan ‘off-road’ or not.

But here is what we think is the minimum criteria for being able to call it an off road caravan. 

What makes a caravan an off road caravan

We’ve written about what makes a off road caravan different from a ‘regular’ caravan, and it’s three core things:

1. Higher ground clearance

Along with the higher ground clearance, a large rear departure angle is also necessary to avoid scraping the back end on uneven terrain.

2. Off road caravan suspension

The best off road caravan suspension is an airbag suspension system; this uses a pressurised rubber bag to absorb the caravans load. 

At the very least you should have an independent suspension system using coil springs with trailing arms and shock absorbers.

It’s really important to have a suspension system that is designed to perform over hundreds of kilometres of rough terrain or corrugations.

3. Durability

The chassis needs to be robust enough to withstand rough tracks and hours over washboard roads; it also requires some ‘armour’ on the outside like checkerplate to prevents damage from rocks, stones, branches etc.
On the inside, the cabinetry should be well made you using quality fittings, glue, screws etc, with attention to details that will ensure they don’t fall out after being shaken about for a couple of hours on the road.

Factors to keep in mind when towing an off road caravan

Weight – since off road caravans are built more robust, they are going to be heavier than a regular touring or road caravan of the same size. You need to ensure that you have a tow vehicle that is correctly rated for the van you intend it to pull.


Off Road Caravans in Australia

I have scoured the internet and found all the off road caravans that I possibly could.

And I’ve managed to find 146 caravan manufacturers with almost 1,500 different models of off road caravans!

I’ve listed all 146 of the manufacturers at the end of this post, if you just want to see who they are.

All 1500 off road caravans on a spreadsheet

However, if you want to see all 1500 different models, we’ve made available a spreadsheet where I’ve painstakingly gone through every manufacturer’s website and listed every model of theirs that they have defined as an off road caravan.

I’ve included the Make, Model, Length, Width, Height, Weights, Number of people it sleeps, whether it has a bathroom or not, the battery set-up, aircon, tow hitch and Base Price; and the URL so you can go and check it out for yourself.

Hybrid Off Road Caravans

A hybrid caravan is generally smaller and lighter than an off-road caravan with the kitchen usually outside; and if there is a bathroom it will either be a small wet bath inside or an ensuite tent on the outside. Check out our post on Hybrid Caravans if this is more what you’re after.


15 Australian off road caravans, with a bathroom

If you just want to see a selection of some of the off road caravans available in Australia, here are 15 that I think would be great for any Aussie adventure. (And if you’re looking for an off-road caravan with an ensuite, all the campers on this list do include an internal bathroom).

Where I’ve been able to find the specifications, I’ve included the dimensions and weights for each caravan. Only use these as a guide, as every manufacturer measures differently and may not include options that may be added later.
