After spending several years thoroughly researching off road vans an ex work colleague suggested we inquire about having an ALLVANS Caravan built. My immediate impression on visiting the company, for the first time, was the high standard of their workmanship and their use of quality materials, on repairs, upgrades and new vans.
Nilton and David’s years of experience helped to consolidate and fine tune our custom design, from the overall size, layout (internal and external), right up to appliance selection. Their customer communication with us was excellent throughout the whole process and we were never left wondering about any stages of the build. If issues arose they were always promptly discussed with us and we were encouraged to visit regarding any modifications required or just to check on progress at any time.
We proudly took delivery of our ALLVAN 4 some 4-5 weeks before the agreed completion time and words can not express our gratitude to the staff for their craftsmanship and attention to detail with our caravan.
Have absolutely no reservations recommending and ALLVANS to anyone contemplating having a new caravan built.

We first became aware of Allvans Caravan Repairs a few years ago when meeting up with our long term friends, John & Carol Victor. They had recently just returned from one of their trips in their ‘Allvans 2’. At that stage we also owned a caravan, and were looking at upgrading to a new van, one that had all the features we wanted for future extended trips. John and Carol had spoken of their great experience with dealing with with Nilton and David, so off to Allvans we went, the best thing we could have done. Nothing was too much trouble in setting out to design and build our ‘Allvan 9`, a great experience in doing a ‘custom build `. We took delivery of ‘Allvan 9` in Jan. 2016 and couldn’t wait to hit the road to escape the Victorian winter. 6 months and 17,000k later after a big lap of Australia and free camping for 80% of the time away, `Allvan 9′ is back home. We are already looking forward to our next trip and many more over the coming years. Thank you Nilton, David , Garrick and staff at Allvans, for building us a wonderful caravan that helped make our `travel oz’ retirement plans a reality. Cheers guys.

Our new ALLVANS 3 caravan / build from the ground to suit our personal requirements.
With 38 years caravanning experience and Jim as a past President of the RACV Caravan Club, we are delighted to promote ALLVANS as an “EXCELLENT OPTION”.
The caravan was completed for delivery in may 2012. It is 16’6″ x 7’6″ on a single axle with shower, toilet and every other conceivable extra.
“A QUALITY CARAVAN TO DREAM FOR”. The staff at Allvans are absolutely professional in all aspects and come “highly recommended”.

Our thanks go to Nilton, David and Garrick at Allvans for the fantastic job they did building our new van “ALLVANS 2″. The whole experience went smoothly even when we were changing things as we went along, Nilton kept us fully informed and included us in the process right throughout the job, which made it very easy for us as we were travelling at the time. Allvans 2 was build with the express purpose of going to every remote off road places so it had to be virtually self sufficient. On it’s maiden trip we took it along the Oodnadatta track and then over the Gibb River Road, camping out where ever we found a good spot, and the van performed perfectly apart from a slight movement of the conventional microwave oven which the boys at Allvans rectify promptly on our return. We couldn’t be happier with our dealings with Allvans Caravan Repairs and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a company to service and maintain their caravan in tip top condition. All in all it is a pleasure to find a company these days that thrives on giving service to their customers. Well done to all at Allvans.

After our old and tired c’van was in need of repairs, we visited “Allvans” premises, saw their workmanship, and decided forget the repairs, let’s get a new caravan build. At the time they, Nilton and his team, were building allvan No 4, I was impressed with the way they implemented the latest technology, that we placed the order for Allvan No 5.
This Caravan has nowtravelled over 10000 Km, and we are as happy now, as when we picked up our “Allvan No 5.
As a result we can highly recemmend the team at Allvans for repairs and or caravan replacement. Well done “Allvans”.
Allvans 1 began when Nilton, David and I discussed the design for a great caravan. Using the 40+ years of experience repairing and servicing caravans they both had seen all the mistakes and bad designs. Allvans 1 design had bed at front with a sloping roof and a long wheel base for a great weight distribution and stability. A tough off road chassis with exceptional stiffness and a roller rocker conventional suspension, a light colored interior to create a illusion of space. Allvans 1 was started in 2010 and registered in 2011. Since then it has traveled 110,000 km sometimes in rough and difficult roads including the West Coast and the Gibb River rd in the Kimberley. Allvans has worked perfectly, the workmanship and finish of the cabinetry is excellent by David. Nilton produced a wiring layout with batteries, solar panels and charging system in a compact way, allowing for small cable lengths to best use power output. Special features such as extenal BBQ and diesel heating have proved to be well worth while.The fully insulated Allvans 1 with Foilboard has proven to be very effective against heat & cold.
I cannot recommend two wonderfully competent tradesman highly enough to anyone thinking of a new caravan or to maintain, modify or service an existing caravan.
Allvans 1 is one of my most prized and most used possession.

After looking at different caravans on the road, in sales yards & magazines we were very fortunate to meet John & Carol with ALLVANS 2 at 80 Mile Beach, WA. We both fell in love with it, ALLVANS 2 still looked brand new even though it was 3 years old & traveled 11 months a year.
We contacted ALLVANS via email & we’re thrilled that they accepted making ALLVANS 6 for us!
Even though we live in WA we experienced the journey with constant updates & photos of our van. With caravans a growing industry the materials & design are constant improving. Nilton & David are aware of this & keen to include them to make ALLVANS 6 the BEST!
The staff were patient to explain everything to us as we are new to the caravan experience. Between Nilton, David & Garrick we feel our van was build with Tender Loving Care. There experience covered every aspect of the van down to the finest detail.
ALLVANS 6 is our home on wheels. We are extremely grateful to John & Carol for letting us look at they van. The staff at Allvans have done an exceptional job creating our dream van so we can tick something else off our bucket list. We highly recommend ALLVANS for any repairs or for building a strong, durable custom made van. Thanks to the ALLVANS team we are now the proud owners of our unique “ALLVANS 6″.
