ZONE RV was founded by ex-luxury yacht builders David Biggar and Matt Johns, who identified the need for improved technology, design and operating efficiencies in the caravan industry. Together, our team harness 25 years’ experience in true composite manufacturing across the marine, aeronautical & civil construction industries. This heritage, combined with world-class innovation and passion, has set a new benchmark for caravan manufacturing standards in Australia. Our team of passionate individuals share the same vision – to keep ZONE RV at the forefront of the caravan industry.
Each ZONE RV caravan is 100% timberless – instead, our caravans have a unique Tufflite composite body, exclusive bonding technology(dust and waterproof), monocoque construction ( originally developed for boats, aircrafts and rockets) and precision engineering – leaving zero room for error.
ZONE RV has a handpicked, unrivalled expert team who together have over 25 years’ experience in composite manufacturing across the aeronautical, marine and civil industries. These skills drive design excellence, innovation and manufacturing efficiency – which has set a new benchmark within the caravan industry. Meet our leading team below:
