As a long standing, highly reputable company,we have done our homework and know the pro’s and con’s of complying American built imports to totally meet Australian compliance.
Don’t spend your hard earned savings on units that have not been built to Australian design rules.
We have our 5th wheelers built in the USA by Forest River to our own specifications .
We deal with one company,who we have enjoyed a partnership with for over 12 years,we visit the factories and discuss our requirements as they change,so we are on top of the changing trends and needs of our customers.
Units that are built in the USA with the door on the wrong side are usually built with a 3 mm chassis which is not strong enough to endure Australian roads.Also the 110 volt wiring from the USA is not legal here.these USA built units have the wrong cookers without flame out protection this is mandatory part of Australian regulations.
In fact the refrigerator the air conditioner the microwave and the furnace all have to be approved for Australian regulations.Also,if the 5th wheel has a bedroom slide or a triple slide-out, don’t be fooled it will need Air Brakes,!!!!
The cost of which is approximately $20 ,000
Don’t be fooled by cheap imports and waste your life savings on something that could be potentially worthless! (and not legal)
Which could mean it may not be able to be insured.
AT THE END OF THE DAY YOU END UP WITH A 5TH WHEEL WITH THE DOOR AND THE AWNING ON THE WRONG SIDE AND A WEAK 3 MM FRAME.
