Essential Caravans, Built For Life

Hello & welcome to Essential Caravans. We are very pleased and extremely proud to introduce to you our range of Essential Caravans. Our extensive range of models and layouts have been created to suit your individual tastes and needs. Essential Caravans didn't appear by chance, but is the coming together of industry experts and the culmination of over 35 years of industry experience. Our expert team has extensive experience and knowledge in all facets of the industry, from caravan manufacturing, dealership management, sales, warranty and customer back up and after service that is second to none. From not so humble beginnings in 2015, when the first 21' Essential Family van rolled out the factory door, there are now well over 3000 Essential Caravans on the road. Over the years, Essential Caravans have grown into a household name, and are an industry leader. Our original philosophies of building the best value for money caravan and a high quality Aussie made product are still our calling and adhered to every day. We are continually breaking the mold of what you would expect in a caravan in this price bracket! And this is well recognized amongst the caravanning fraternity and amongst industry peers. We pride ourselves on back up service and have an Australia-wide dealer network, each of whom are recognized in their own fields. Designed with the most functional, attractive and comfortable layouts in mind, we are sure that you will enjoy many years of hassle-free caravanning across our beautiful country in your very own Essential. We are sure that we have a caravan to suit you, and we look forward to building the van of your dreams! Thank you from all of us here at Essential Caravans.

A Life Essential

We are very happy with our Essential Caravan. The staff have been fantastic to deal with, great vans, great service and wonderful adventures to be had in a very reliable caravan. Thanks Scott and the team at Essential Caravans. Also wanted to add we have been at Marlo for the weekend and out of the 10 caravans here there were 4 essential grant cruisers amongst them!

Getting Excited

Visited the Essential Factory today and Lynne, such a lovely lady took us on a tour around the factory. Wow, what a system and team David has in place. Clean, structured, professional and attention to detail are just a few of the very positive things we noted. Well done Essential Caravans. We are even more excited now about getting our van. To Lynne. You're the best and the level of Customer Service you provide is exemplary.

Bloody Awesome

We've just rolled back to Yorke Peninsula after three weeks travelling around since picking up our Essential 23' Grant Cruiser family van from Ian Grants Caravans. Two words for these vans: bloody AWESOME. Tows like a dream, heaps of room, fantastic features. Three weeks on the road with two kids, and we all made it back in one piece, so there must be enough room for all!! Would highly recommend Essential for a cracker of a family caravan. Well done Essential and Ian Grant Caravans.
