Regardless of the type or the price tag, when purchasing a new RV buyers will be expecting excellence in quality, especially in regard to the engineering of the vehicle. Caravans are, for most buyers, a long-term purchase and the expectation would be for that to last many kilometres of travelling. One of Australia’s leading caravan manufacturers, New Age Caravans, has recently upped the ante in that regard with its chassis certification.
New Age Caravans announced a milestone in its engineering excellence with global certification of the chassis manufacturing process for all its caravans. The chassis for the brand are designed by the highly regarded Walkinshaw Automotive Group with Hilton Manufacturing handling the manufacturing. According to New Age, Hilton have the highest accreditation of any manufacturer in the RV industry.
The chassis for all the models now have global certification in regard to the quality management systems, quality of the welding and other quality requirements. This new certification follows the company completing approval of Australian Design Rules for the whole range.
Chris Polites, the MD for New Age Caravans said the company wanted to ensure that the chassis design and manufacture was of the highest quality. Mr Polites said that the international certifications of the Hilton manufacture along with design by Walkinshaw showed the company’s commitment to achieving that quality.
New Age considered this level of certification was essential for their brand, although it was not monitored or mandated in the sector. Mr Polites said that their owners should have, when towing their caravan, peace of mind and the chassis was the main connection between road and vehicle.
The global certifications that New Age Caravans has attained include:- ISO 90001 (management systems); ISO 3834 (welding); DIN 2303 (quality reqs); and have staff that are accredited welding specialists and engineers.
One of the specific measures noted by the company is using a robotic welder which ensures high quality consistency. The testing procedure is extremely rigorous and according to the company, exceeds the requirements but for New Age, is essential.
The outcome for buyers is knowing that their New Age chassis meets the highest standards around design, testing and build. The international certification applies to all New Age chassis so buyers can make their selection from the brand’s extensive range.

Finance for New Age Caravans
Of course caravan buyers will be wanting and expecting quality, but the purchase decision for many will also come down to price. Or more specifically, to affordability. That can relate more to the caravan finance than to the price tag. After all, it is the monthly finance repayments that will need to be worked into the budget.

With the RBA set to lift the cash rate again and possibly several times ahead, sourcing the cheapest interest rate and a fixed interest rate loan can be essential to affordable caravan finance.
