Caravans with Aluminium Frames

39 Caravan Brands with Aluminium Frames (Full Directory)

Share It!

As the caravanning industry grows and evolves, many manufacturers are joining the aluminium frame bandwagon and foregoing the original timber frame construction.

Caravans with aluminium frames are lightweight and strong, however they are not impervious to metal fatigue down the track, which can result in welds and rivets weakening, potentially causing leaks. Those who take it easy with their van are less likely to have any structural issues with an aluminium frame caravan, while those who tend to go for more rough adventures have a higher chance of potential longterm cracks and loosening.

Bear in mind, that even caravans with aluminium frames will often have ply walls and timber in other sections of the caravan construction. When it comes to fixing sections that incur wood rot, timber frames are actually easier to cut out and replace than caravans with aluminium frames.

Given all of the pros and cons, here’s the full list of all manufacturers in Australia who currently use aluminium frames in their caravans (that I am aware of).
