“The Tvan MK5 stood out from the crowd due to its uniqueness and perceived willingness to push innovative manufacturing principles”
– Aaron Flanagan

The specification of the Canning is truly diverse, featuring the new MK5 “must have” options such as; Quick Cover® awning, full front boot with pantry, Skyward® lift up deck and upgraded electronics.
The Tvan really is proof if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Track Trailer have absolutely nailed the essentials years ago and now just continue to refine the product as technology and market needs change. It might be shinier, quieter, and a whole lot nicer than early iterations but it’s still just as capable and robust when the going gets tough.
As a well evolved and long-standing design format, and one that has stood the test of time and some of Australia’s toughest terrain, the Tvan offers numerous liveability and comfort features that make it well worth consideration if you are after a good camper trailer investment. The full-size queen mattress now lies under a raised roof line, so there’s less of that claustrophobic feeling that has turned off some in the past. And it’s so quickly accessed with the quick set-up features of the Tvan. The bed remains made up during travel and is instantly accessible.
You haven’t been a market leader for over 17 years if you don’t do it right. The Track
Tvan has been the trustworthy companion for well over 2500 Aussie travellers with a
strong reputation for strength, comfort, innovation and intuitive design. This is the mate that you want beside, or behind you when you go to battle. It would rate as the most trusted camper in our big, wide land. Yet you don’t stay on top for this long without keeping up with the times, and our good friends at Track Trailers don’t just keep up – they set the pace!
Track Trailer owners don’t mess around; they tend to like to spend weeks if not months at a time traversing this wide brown land of ours. And if they own a Tvan they’re probably inclined to stay as far away from civilisation as possible, for as long as possible. The MK5 Canning facilitates this nicely.
The Canning is a fantastic mix of technology and design allowing for fast overnight stops and long stays with its ensuite tent and portable hot water.
The electronics feature a 120W solar panel which feeds the onboard battery via a 25amp DC-DC charger (with MPPT solar control). This unit also comes with 4 bed side USB sockets, 300W pure sine inverter, 21amp battery charger and so much more.
The water setup on the van allows the user to draw from the standard 108L rear water tank or feed the sink and shower outlet with the draw from an external source input.
Moving inside, the Canning features the new MK5 roof which is much taller than all previous Tvan models and the new canvas tent which is now faster and more user friendly to setup and stow away.
One of the biggest things about the Canning is all about how small it is or rather how light it is. After researching our competitors, we can now safely say it was the lightest hard floor camper trailer by a fair margin (over 100kgs), weighing in dry at 1045kgs with a ball weight of 135kgs – now that’s a feather weight. This is a hugely important factor when talking about driving thousands of kilometres as it saves on fuel consumption and wear and tear on your tow vehicle.
