Our Caravan & Camping Experience

From Dave Benson Caravans to Explorer Caravans

Dave Benson has over 40 years experience in the caravan industry, having founded and run Dave Benson Caravans.

Dave has worked for a major Australian manufacturer Concept Caravans, who manufacture Concept Caravans, Newlands Caravans and Franklin Caravans, along with their sister brand Viscount Caravans.

Josh, Daniel and Tom have been around the caravan market since they were kids. As a result they have a great deal of first hand experience in both camper trailer and caravan holidays.

Dave first started in the industry running Viscount Adelaide in the early 80's.

Dave has sold nearly every brand of caravan on the market. Including Jayco, Coromal, Lotus, Leader, Supreme, Jurgens. Dave has also sold camper trailers such as Cub Campers, Track Trailers and many other brands. In other words, when you come to Explorer Caravan Sales, you’ll be speaking to a team who know the market, the products and the lifestyle.

Carefully Chosen New Caravan Brands

Explorer Caravan Sales have carefully chosen Viscount and Franklin Caravans as their two new caravan brands.

These two make’s offer great value and choice. Both are high quality 100%  Australian made products.

Our new Caravan Brands

We offer a range of excellent caravans from the classic brand's Viscount and Franklin. Both ranges include a fantastic selection of layouts that offers something for everyone. Whether you’re after a family caravan or an offroader for two, we’ve got it at Explorer Caravan sales.

Ideal For First Time Buyers & Young Families

The Covid 19 pandemic removed the opportunity for couples and families to travel to overseas holiday destinations.

As a result, many South Australians want to holiday in Australia for their major getaway. Having a caravan is the best way to do this.

Our range is built for a younger more vibrant market, who want value, features and flare.

If you are new to the caravan market, you have to check out these amazing new brands to the Adelaide market.
