Sometimes you never know where a great idea will take you, but here at Track Trailer the final destination is always the same, somewhere off-road! With that in mind a clean sheet of paper was broken out and the all new T4 was born. This unique…
Gerard Waldron (director TRACK) and Wayne Gason (MD Gason industries) jointly announced that Track has acquired the long-standing Australian brands.
This deal, which will see these brands stay on our shores has been in negotiation since early December 2019 and the agreement transfers all the intellectual property for both the design/manufacture and marketing of both brands to TRACK.

After a pretty fantastic start to 2017, having been hiking in New Zealand and snowboarding in Japan, all before the end of March, our return to work the very next day, saw us find out we had lost our jobs. Uh oh.
Both working at the same small family business, we were aware it was possible we could both find ourselves jobless, but figured we’d cross that bridge when, and if, it happened.
So, 2 years in on our mortgage, suddenly zero income, and a plan to travel Oz for a year. If people thought we were crazy working and living together, they were about to think we had gone completely bonkers!

The plan was to see Australia first, then see the world while sharing our love of what Australia offers. So how is it, that thirty-five years later, two unlikely retired women in their sixties are still waiting to see the world and are continuing to choose 4×4 off-grid caravanning instead?
By sharing some of our experiences, we hope to encourage more women to head off grid and help anyone thinking about getting an off-road caravan avoid some of the mistakes we made along the way. With the right rig you can be a competent and confident 4×4 caravanner in a very short space of time.

After David blew out the 60 candles on his birthday cake and said goodbye to our family a dozen times we headed to our favourite weekend getaway spot for our first shakedown camp on the beach at Minnie Water. Our preferred spot is the Illaroo Campground in the centre of Yuraygir National Park about 40kms east of Grafton, NSW.
So after 10 years of dreaming and reading and pouring over maps we’re ready to give it a go hoping to be on the eastern edge of the Kimberley by June. Just the start of an epic touring adventure.
The Road Vehicle Standards Act (RVSA) is the biggest legislative change the Australian Caravan Industry has seen in over 30 years. For Recreational Vehicle Manufacturers and Importers in Australia, the RVSA is set to completely transform the industry as we know it.
The Road Vehicle Standards Act (RVSA) 2018 is replacing the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989. The RVSA better reflects the significant changes in global and domestic vehicle markets and improvements in vehicle technologies over the last few decades.
RVMAP is a voluntary industry program. The Caravan Industry Association of Australia is not in any way a manufacturer, distributor, packager, importer or retailer of any product. The RVMAP badge is not intended to be, and should not be taken as, a guarantee or warranty as to –
- (a) product compliance. Reviews are conducted on a random and sample basis from participating businesses; or
- (b) the financial strength of a participating business. Reviews do not cover financial issues; or
- (c) whether the product meets your needs or is the best product to meet those needs.
The Caravan Industry Victoria (CIV) was formed in 1952 to foster the growth of caravanning holidays in Victoria. The Association quickly became an integral body for like-minded entrepreneurs who were manufacturing caravans, recreational vehicles, RV accessories and technology in Victoria.
Today, 90 per cent of all caravan manufacturing in Australia takes place in Victoria. Major component suppliers use Victoria as their base including chassis manufacturers, timber, aluminium and fibreglass suppliers. There are also a growing number of electronics and alternative power manufacturers.
