Love the van, loved the service, love the people who do work to make you happy. Loved the two way communication and always feeling to be kept up to date and always felt at ease with the whole experience. Crusader Caravans are award winners for a reason and we can see why.

We had all but given up on finding a small Aussie hybrid at an affordable price until we found the Crusader Chameleon Liberty SV. This unique van has not only met all our criteria for features but has exceeded our expectations for build quality and comfort. Her unique style turns heads and invites requests to inspect and admiring comments. The staff at the Dealership have been supportive and accommodating, as have team at Crusader HQ. We are proud to be members of the Crusader family.

We have just finished half a lap of Oz with our Crusader Musketeer Palace and we are very happy with how our van travelled. It’s currently being serviced and some things attended to which the team were more than happy to help us out with. Thank you Crusader for getting us around Australia safely. 🤩

We brought another Crusader as we had loved our previous one which we had for nine years. Looked at other vans but just couldn’t go past the Crusader.

Australian owned and built. Great height inside of our Musketeer. The Grey over black exterior colours never dates. The only issue we have with our loved Musky is there are no issues to talk about. Outstanding.

We researched our 'dream' caravan for many years. We bought books and magazines, attended many caravan and camping shows before finally deciding on Crusader. We chose Crusader for its excellent build quality, thicker floor and roof, quality finishes, higher internal roof, range of options you can add at build, excellent reputation, customer service, recliner option and we had a local dealer. We love our van and are very happy we chose Crusader.

Absolutely the finest caravan on the market. When you look at others around the same price range there are so many quality features that stand out on a crusader caravan. They are built with love and built to last and once you’ve had one you won’t want anything else. Quality.

After looking and researching for 18 months, we stepped inside the Excalibur and just knew we had found our van! We loved the open, spacious feel of the van and the extra storage of the rear boot. Everything was included, nothing we needed was an optional extra. The service we received from Crusader Melbourne was second to none, nothing was too much trouble and we were kept informed of the progress of our van from start to finish. Our van is four years old and we love it now as much as we did the day we chose it. We’re so happy to be a part of the Crusader family!!

We absolutely love our Crusader Family Castle. It’s travelled a half lap of Oz so far and hasn’t missed a beat. It’s been our place to call home since February 2021 and we adore our home on wheels. Any small issues we have had have been sorted with no drama and even a stop off in Perth on this trip too. 💯 Recommended being part of the Crusader Family. 🎉🥳

We have had our Inspiration for 11years and could not be happier. It has seen many parts of this amazing country in all kinds of weather and come up trumps. We have looked at many other brands but they don’t come close. Thanks Crusader.

Crusader Caravans are built to last

We build our caravans strong & tough yet lightweight. Every Crusader Caravan is the result of years of research, development and testing.
Nothing but the best will do, we only use Duratech steel chassis made in Australia from Australian steel. Our roof and floor are composite one piece designs without joins for better durability, protection and insulation. We use weight rated light truck tyres.
We only use quality fixtures and fittings. Our ceilings are higher than most, 6’8’’ high. The list goes on….

The workmanship carried out by our team is second to none. It’s our attention to detail in every aspect of the build that really sets us apart. Take a good look at a Crusader Caravan and you will see the difference.

Crusader offer an extensive range of top quality, luxurious caravans

We know that one size doesn’t fit all so we offer 6 model ranges with 27 individual layouts, so you can rest assured we’ll have the perfect caravan for you. Our varying product range and price points is designed to put the exciting world of caravanning within the reach of more Australians.

And we offer a range of optional extras and variations to customise your van to suit your individual needs; from benchtop colours to upholstery finishes, you can create your own caravan.

Best of all, you’ll drive away knowing your Crusader caravan has undergone rigorous quality assurance inspections, has been individual weighed and tested in our monsoon water test unit, and not released until the white glove inspection gives it the tick of approval.

You can count on us

We know caravans and it shows. We’ve been making caravans since the turn of the century, and are proud to be one of Australia’s leading caravan manufacturers. With an acute attention to detail at the core of our manufacturing process, our experience shows in the quality of the build, inside out.

For instance we offer a thick fully insulated one-piece composite floor and roof. Composite is the latest advancement in caravan build material. This means your Crusader caravan is a solid but lighter structure that’s better insulated, water and hail resistant, and much more comfortable inside; making it ideal for the extreme Australian weather conditions.

And we look after our customers. When you purchase a Crusader Caravan you become part of the Crusader family. We will look after you at every stage, from purchase to delivery, and beyond.

With thousands of satisfied customers, a dealer presence right across Australia, and support available when needed, we’re a brand you can count on.

All our caravans are built in Australia by Australians.
It’s this local market knowledge that underpins the way we build and design our vans. Our vans are all tested and fine tuned to local Australian conditions, so you can take our vans just about anywhere.

We live in one of the best countries in the world with the most spectacular scenery at our doorstep all waiting to be discovered by you and your family.
So why not set off on an adventure and travel in comfort and style with a Crusader Caravan.

There’s never been a better time to buy a luxurious award winning Crusader Caravan and turn your caravanning dreams into a reality.

Our new factory coming soon!

We’re very pleased to announce a major milestone in the history of Crusader Caravans – we’ll be moving to a new manufacturing facility that will effectively double our production capacity in 2022.
