If you haven’t seen this video of the Royal Flair Aussiemate then have a quick peak at it. It’s a pretty good insight into the caravan. A bit of a teaser perhap but a great look inside the van nonetheless.

As we recently reported we were at the Brisbane Pre-Christmas Caravan and Camping Sale. Gold Coast Caravans sales attended with a number of caravans from Royal Flair and our own Overland series.

It was great to see so many people coming through to see both the Royal Flair and the Overland caravans. It was a great opportunity for Brisbane caravanners to see our range and we were pleased with the way they turned out to see our vans.

Below are some images from the Brisbane Pr-Christmas Caravan Sale.

It’s been a busy time here at Gold Coast Caravan Sales. We’ve recently welcomed two new labels into our fold, our own Overland Caravans and the range from Royal Flair. We thought it would be a good time to stop and take a look at Royal Flair caravans. We’ll have a look at caravans are in the Royal Flair range and what is available here at Gold Coast Caravan Sales.

Some Background on Royal Flair

Royal Flair is a family owned company from Melbourne’s outer suburbs. It was started in 1991 by their patriarch Peter Deralas, who still works with the company. There are now three generations of family working at Royal Flair. They’ve been brought up in the industry, know what makes a good caravan, and strive hard to keep up with modern design and practices.

Royal Flair keep a close eye on their industry and respond to feedback from clients and dealers. This process has allowed them to grow a range of caravans that has a caravan for almost every budget. They’ve also lead with innovations like the SkyDeck seen on the Pizza.

Royal Flair’s Quality Control

Royal Flair is a quality certified companyRoyal Flair is the only quality endorsed caravan manufacturer in Australia. Their pursuit was to build the best quality range of caravans in Australia, which has led them to achieve ISO 9001: 2008 certification. Royal Flair’s focus on continually improving their products, their client satisfaction, on design and development, means they deliver some of the best caravans in Australia.

The Royal Flair Caravans Range

Royal Flair have seven different caravan models in their range. They range from the diminutive but deceptive Micron, to the top end caravans,  the family oriented Family Flair,  the luxury of the Vanroyce and the off-road ready Aussiemate. We’ll start with the Micron.

Royal Flair Micron

The Royal Flair Micron is a surprise package. Small but doesn’t feel small. With many features you’d expect in a full-sized caravan, this van will suit anyone who wants to holiday on a budget without feeling like they’re on a budget holiday.

Royal Flair PD Series

The PD Series from Royal Flair was named after the patriarch Peter Deralas. It’s a non-shower caravan designed to give you plenty of space for living. With many floor plans to choose from you can make the PD Series the caravan that suits your lifestyle.

The Family Flair is built for your family holidays. The gourmet centre kitchen has an elevated 184 litre Thetford 3 way fridge, 4 burner grill and microwave, all opposite a spacious L shape lounge dinette.  There’s plenty of storage available, including under the Queen sized bed.

The Vanroyce is for those who want the highest levels of luxury from their caravan. With a rear club lounge and a queen size bed, the Vanroyce’s comprehensive list of features make it a caravan to envy. The Vanroyce has a spacious moulded shower cubicle and a separate toilet.

Royal Flair Piazza

The stand-out feature of the Piazza is the fold-out deck. It’s one of a kind. Watch this video for  a close look at the Piazza and the SkyDeck.

As you can see from that video, the SkyDeck is a great innovation. But pay attention to the quality and fit-out of the Pizza. It’s a well thought-out and well constructed caravan.

Royal Flair Aussiemate

The Royal Flair Aussiemate is built tough for Australian conditions. It’s an off-road caravan made to suit the needs of Australian caravanners. Built on a 6” galvanised chassis with Control Rider suspension, 16” wheels and galvanised protection underbody, this is a seriously tough caravan for tough conditions. Internally the van is beautifully finished and has the kind of creature comforts you’d expect from a Royal Flair caravan.
