off road caravan kimberley karavanThe Kimberley Karavan, a lightweight folding off road caravan that can go anywhere. Kimberley Karavans are unique with their internal shower and toilet, comfortable internal seating and luxury finishes.
There is 2.2m of head clearance. Yet they are no wider than a 4WD so can travel absolutely anywhere!

The Kimberley Karavan It is designed to be BOTH self contained and "off-road". One feature that makes this Australian off-road caravan unique is the design of the low drag fibreglass sides and roof with such a low travelling profile. The benefit of this fuel saving is not the saving in fuel cost, but the ADDED RANGE from the standard tanks in regular 4WDs. This ADDED RANGE is so important for you to "go anywhere"!
