There’s no denying that with the explosion of the caravanning and RV industry over recent years, there are more and more Chinese imports making their way onto the scene. Alongside that, with rising production costs, some Australian manufacturers have made the decision to take some (or all) of their builds offshore in order to stay relevant in a competitive market.

But, how do you know which caravans are made in China and which ones are locally built? I’ve done the research and added all caravans that are made in China (or elsewhere offshore) into one clean list.

Rather than regurgitating Chinese whispers as it were, only manufacturers who openly state that some or all of their products/ components are made in China or overseas have been included here.

Bear in mind that some companies keep their cards very close to their chest when it comes to sharing information about importing their trailers. Considering the lack of disclosure, this list is no doubt shorter than it rightfully should be.

As this is an ever changing market, please feel free to let me know in the comments down the bottom if you see any manufacturers who you believe need to be added or omitted from this list. I will endeavour to keep it as up-to-date as possible.
