Crusader, one of Australia’s biggest caravan manufacturers, has moved into a new large state-of-the-art factory on the northern side of Melbourne. It will allow the company to double its production capacity compared to its previous manufacturing plant.

The manufacturer initially planned to move into the new purpose-built 15,010sqm Melbourne production facility in early 2022. However, it was delayed for several months due to COVID-related challenges, according to a report.

Crusader made the announcement on social media, including a video tour of the large factory floorspace that will roll out its main range of large touring and off-road caravans and its latest compact composite CRV models.

The company said last year the modern factory located at the new 4Ten Epping industrial estate in Melbourne’s north “will feature sustainable design elements, a high clearance warehouse space, a state-of-the-art office, recessed loading docks, and on-grade rolling doors.”

Crusader is the latest Melbourne manufacturer to move into a new purpose-built facility in Melbourne’s northern suburbs after Network RV opened its new head office and production facility earlier this year.

Founded by former caravan plumber Serge Valentino, Crusader started building caravans under the Dreamhaven name in 2001 and now employs more than 100 staff and sells its vans through a nationwide dealer network.
