WHAT IS IT LIKE TO OWN A
When you’re in the Zone, life is grand. It’s about buying the ultimate caravan, for the best time of your life. So why settle for less? Luxury living on the road is a reality with your ZONE RV. Let our customers tell you…
In the sales process they have been extremely helpful and professional. Answering every question in a timely manner and comprehensively…
We will be collecting our Zone RV 18.6 mid-December and so far have been really impressed with the engagement we have had with this company. We previously had an Ultimate camper trailer which we loved the marine engineering heritage of. Everything was bulletproof. Zone RV we selected for some of the same reasons – lightweight but designed to be robust. A very modern look. We really disliked all that old wood panelling look you get in so many of these vans and the heavy tow weights.
… Their designs are innovative and yet they haven’t just thrown lots of gimmicks into the van. An important draw card though was how professional Matt Johns the MD was to deal with. He’s been so responsive and this didn’t change after we signed up. We also met Director Dave Biggar who was of the same mould. I’ve been in sales for 35 years and bring a certain level of cynicism to a purchasing process but I just can’t fault these guys.

Our caravan story started more than a year ago.
We attended numerous caravan and camping shows and could not find what we wanted. It quickly became obvious that we required a custom-build. We were in search of an off-road van and didn’t want to feel boxed in, so decided on a slide-out to give that feel of space and comfort.
Most manufactures we spoke to said you can’t have a slide-out in an off-road van. My question was “why not”? We eventually found a manufacturer that would, so we paid our deposit and waited and waited. 3 months had passed with nothing and no phone calls returned or emails. We cancelled that build and found a large manufacturer who said they could do our build.
Again, that went pear-shape with the van getting longer than we wanted, the price going through the roof and service going south.
So again, we cancelled the build. We wanted what we wanted, and not what they want to give us.
Again, I started the search for a builder who could give us what we wanted and were prepared to pay for. I found Zone RV’s website and rang them. They were very helpful and said they could build me an off-road van with a slide-out.
After being burnt twice and hearing all the promises before, I decided the best thing to do was to fly from Western Australia to Coolum Beach QLD to check them out.
Karen and I spent the day with them and viewed their factory and build process. We were thoroughly impressed, the quality of their standard fixtures and fitting were the best, far exceeding what we had seen on other vans. The composite monocoque construction was light-weight, giving us the opportunity to spec up our van without the worry of weight restrictions.
We were looking for a van that was not going to date or look out of date, we wanted something that would give us years of service. The Zone RV has no timber in its construction, not even the cupboards and that appealed to me. The outer shell is hail resistant, again another plus.
We signed up while we were there and locked in a build date. Being the fussy person that I am and knowing exactly what I wanted, I requested and received all the build drawings as well as progress photos of the construction. I was amazed when I saw they had built the side-out to be flush fitting with the side of the van and not overlapping like other builders do. This was something I had not considered and could not believe the effort Matt and his team went to, to make this something special.
The van was completed and freighted to Perth. The wife and I are extremely happy and believe that after all the hassles we went through that we now have a better-quality van and for a substantial saving over the previous builder’s price.
We have just completed an 11-day trip and are amazed at the ease of set-up and pack-up compared to the off-road camper that we previously had. We are about to depart again for a 3-week trip, all being in preparation for next years’ big lap around the country.
I firmly believe if you’re not in the Zone, then you’re not in the future of caravanning.

A quick note to thank you and the Zone team for the fantastic experience in having our van designed, built and delivered.
From the very first contact with Zone RV, we have had an incredible journey. We were sent requested information within minutes, and you were always quick to respond to any queries we had. It was such a refreshing change for us after a bad experience with a different manufacturer and a deal we thought we did at a caravan show. Zone made us feel we were important, listened to our ideas and designed them into our caravan.
We had been looking and planning to upgrade our caravan for several years and had a clear idea of the van we wanted for our retirement. Our list of our likes and needs was a progression over this time
Once we got the specs from Zone we were amazed that all the extras we required in a caravan came standard in a Zone. There were standard inclusions we had never heard of, and now wouldn’t be without. Prior to committing we toured the factory and met with the designers and builders and were very impressed with the build quality, innovation and attention to detail.
We are both tall, and wanted a full size mattress, without a bolster, and to be able to sit at the table without our knees overlapping. We wanted this and a full ensuite in the smallest possible caravan. The Zone 18’6” was by far the best layout we found and it was the ‘Zone ingenuity’ that made it possible. We were able to make changes right up to the start of construction.
To have our perfect layout, all the options we considered necessary, the most technically advanced caravan, have experienced such a flawless sales and build process and for it to cost no more than similarly spec’d vans has been very pleasing.
Our first major trip was through Central Australia. The van was absolutely brilliant, was a breeze to tow and functioned perfectly. We did encounter some minor problems. One call to Zone and we had the van booked in for repairs and within one hour we were contacted by a component supplier who helped us resolve one of the problems. The after sales service was exactly the same as the pre purchase experience and we could not recommend Zone RV highly enough.

HOW DOES ZONE RV PROVIDE A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE?
At ZONE RV, it’s not only our innovation that sets us apart, but also our truly unique customer network. We understand our customers are our ambassadors and we treat each and every one of them like family.
Our customers also experience safer travels by towing a lightweight caravan, due to our purpose-built chassis, composite panels and frameless structure designed to be strong and lightweight.
Only in a ZONE RV will you experience consistent room temperature due to our 100% insulated ‘Tufflite’ fiberglass composite panels (floor, roof and side panels). Each ZONE RV caravan is built without using any timber, because timber absorbs water and is the main reason for rotting (wet timber creates and unpleasant smell inside caravans). It’s also a natural product which creates inconsistency in strength and density. This is why you won’t find any timber in the ZONE RV factory.
The result? A lighter, stronger, smarter and safer caravan. Not to mention the sleek finish and unmistakable, unique design that has our customers proud to say `I’m in the ZONE`.
