Find out what makes Spinifex so different in the Offroad Rv Market in Australia
The Spinifex Difference
At Spinifex Caravans, we take pride in what we build. When we started our business, back in 2007, we had one goal – to deliver luxury off-road caravans to customers who have worked hard all their lives and literally want and deserve the best. We strive for perfection, and we say yes to your ideas and requests. Here at Spinifex, we can customise most things to build you the caravan of your dreams.
Every van we manufacture makes us a little better at what we do as we are always looking for new ways to do things. We are continually developing and researching new products to add to our list of optional extras. A lot of these ideas come from our customer as we enjoy having a close relationship with our clients – the spinifex family. That is probably the reason why we have an excellent reputation in the market, not only as leaders in the off-road field, but also leaders in our customer service.
Custom Built Caravans
At Spinifex Caravans we make is our policy to listen to you, we work with you to design your caravan and we do our best to include all of your desires in your final product. Its something we have been doing for years, and our customers rave about it. Our passion is building you a caravan so your adventures are incredible.
Previous customers have asked us to add things like a custom blown glass bowl in the bathroom, changing the living area to include two comfy seats instead of the standard lounge setting or allowing space on the hitch to trail a boat. Imagine your dream caravan with a heat lamp in the bathroom, space for your fishing rods, customised suspension, a unique bed layout, or bigger cupboard space – the choice is yours!
There is a lot said these days about custom building. While some manufacturers claim to custom build by simply allowing buyers to choose little more than curtain colours and the stain of the furniture, Spinifex vans are the real deal. The buyers of our review van had decided on every aspect of their caravan, from the suspension type to every minute detail of the internal layout.

Meet the Team
From humble beginnings, Steve has grown Spinifex to the business you see today. He started in the caravan manufacturing industry when he was only 15 and has been in it for over 26 years now. Steve is a Trade qualified Motor Body Builder, and there is no part in caravan construction he hasn’t done. On his spare time, you will find him caravaning and fishing, although he is not very good at the latter.
When you decide on what size and layout you want your caravan to be, Dave is the man behind the drawings. Dave earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Design majoring in Industrial Design, and he has been in the design and drafting industry for 17 years. Of these 17 years, 11 were dedicated to the motor yacht industry, where he became a specialist in both interior and exterior design, drafting and 3D modelling. Besides drawing our stunning vans, in his spare time, Dave enjoys getting away with family.
Linda has been working with our managing director Steve since 2007, when Spinifex was born. Not only she knows the business from inside out, but Linda also has over 25 years of experience in office administration, finances, payroll and bookkeeping. Linda is personable, knowledgeable, welcoming and always makes sure we take good care of our customers. When she is not doing the books, Linda loves to travel.
Mark started working on our production floor in 2017 and quickly progressed to his current position because we believe he knows a thing or two about caravans. He has been in the vehicle accessories industry for 32 years, and 12 of those were dedicated to the caravan industry. He also has over two decades of background in sales and management and outstanding customer service skills. That is probably why he always goes the extra mile for all our customers. On the weekends you might see him camping or riding his Harley.
Production and Service Manager
Scott is a qualified Motor Body Builder, and he has been in the Australian caravan industry for 25 years. He ran a caravan workshop for over two decades, before joining the SpinfeX team in 2018. Scott has extensive experience in both building and servicing all parts of a caravan – electrical, plumbing, structure… You name it! That is why we trust him to manage our production line and look after our fleet. When he is not in the factory building our amazing caravans, he loves to go fishing and camping.
The newest member of the team came all the way from Brazil to diversify the Spinifex family. She earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication majoring in Public Relations and has been working with marketing and social media for almost a decade. She loves technology and all the cool things computers can do. When she is not taking care of our social media channels, she spends her time travelling around Australia.
