Hi everyone,

Does anyone have any opinions - good, bad or indifferent on Aussie Wide Caravans, and in particular the Bunderra model?

Configuration I can assess for myself, but feedback on build quality, support from manufacturer etc would be much appreciated.

The couple of people we have met with the Aussie Wide Bunderra vans have been very happy indeed. They looked solid and well designed vans. I would be happy to buy one.

Hi Alan
From my knowledge regarding the Aussie Wide Paringa I can say they appear well built all round with certain 'extras' as standard. Seem to be dirt road+ capable and have some good features such as suspension and exterior plating. Bunderra is a bit more upmarket, maybe more offroad capable? and can be longer in length.

Build quality I would class as good or above average compared to some vans, manufacturer's support usually good, sometimes required a second contact or email to obtain an answer. Seem genuine in their efforts.

Don't see a lot on the West Coast, don't let that deter any purchase decision as they have fairly standard type fittings as most vans have.

Hope this assists, Richie.

I think that anyone considering buying a caravan needs to speak to a professional caravan repairer. That's where the problems that appear, that no-one comes across in the first year of ownership, really show up.
Many Australian manufacturers, including a few of the "top" manufacturers have a lot of serious issues relating to caravan build quality, and manufacturer support.

This following thread is a real eye opener, and speaking to the gent himself, would probably reveal a lot more - including names that he can't reveal on public forums.

It's interesting to see that his reports neatly dovetail with my extensive experience as a contractor who's owned many caravans - in that sealing problems (which cover the sealants used, as well as the actual design) are the greatest single problem with nearly all vans.

Cheers - Ron.
