The extremely popular caravan manufacturer New Age Caravans is celebrating a major milestone this month. The manufacture of its 20,000th caravan chassis. This is engineered, validated and designed by the highly-regarded Walkinshaw Group which purchased New Age Caravans in 2016.
This is a very special milestone for New Age and Walkinshaw as that 20,000 chassis rolled off their production line. The production at New Age had been ramping up considerably over the past few months as the entire workforce returned to work following the impacts faced during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This ramp up has allowed the operation to reach this significant target at its facility located in Epping Victoria. The company manufactures at its Melbourne facility and sells through an Australia-wide dealer network. The popularity of the brand has New Age producing in excess of 2000 of its great caravans every year.
The milestone chassis is destined for one of the company’s Manta Ray pop top designs, a 16ft. The company sees it as fitting that this milestone chassis will be proudly installed on one of the models from its original ranges. A range that has been a staple for the New Age but has evolved since introduced in 2010.
Chris Polites, the Managing Director of New Age Caravans said the company was extremely proud of this significant achievement and it represented a celebration for local Australian manufacturing. He said the company looked forward to handing over the 20,000 chassis caravan to the Melbourne dealership customer when completed later in the year.
The Journey to 20,000
New Age first started out in 2004 as New Age Frames and Designs before becoming the current entity in 2008. Over the ensuing years, it has developed and manufactured in excess of 70 RV models. The company employs 300 locals and is regarded as one of Australia’s great high-end caravan manufacturers.
The company is known for its superior standard of framing and for its level of CNC fabricated componentry from its state-of-the-art facility. In 2016 the company was purchased by The Walkinshaw Group.
The Walkinshaw Group is involved in manufacturing, has a partnership with the VW Amarok ute, motor racing, is an affiliate of GM and is especially renowned for its engineering expertise.
New Road Owl
One of the key models in the New Age Caravans range is the Road Owl. This particular range was first developed by New Age to facilitate style and comfort in caravan travel at a very affordable price tag. The latest model in the range, the MY22 takes those aspects to the next level.
The entire Road Owl range of caravans has received a redesign, which reflects the exciting new signature look. This includes smooth real wall panelling in aluminium composite; a unique design for the rear mould which has a housing for the spare wheel which is recessed; and a front-end restyle with new striking graphics.
The result is outstanding with the Road Owl achieving a new and superior level of sophistication and streamlined lines.
Inside, the new features include a Holland style blind for the door and an upgrade to the edge banding for the partitions and for the cabinets. The dining seats have been redesigned and now feature greater depth for the cushions and support for the lumbar region to increase comfort. The kitchen has also received attention with a new surround for the microwave which is designed for increased safety and security during travel, even on those bumpier roads.
Buyers will also find new reading lights, USB ports and many other inclusions to further elevate the level of comfort and style in the Road Owl. Buyers have the choice of Adventurer or Comfort Pack when ordering their new Road Owl.
