Website updates

admin Caravan News Leave a Comment

We’ve been working on improvements to our website and would love to know what you think. We’ve change the way we present the caravan listings and how you search through them. The biggest difference you’ll notice is the search filter on the caravans page and on the caravan listings.

Caravans Page

You can now use drop-down boxes to tick off which brand, condition and caravan type you want to find. There are also a bunch of tick boxes for you to select which amenities you’re looking for in a caravan. This will shortcut the list for anyone who only wants a caravan with an en-suite, or queen bed, or air-conditioning (for instance).

We’ve noticed that many people who come to our website go straight to the caravan listings page. We hope that by making these listings easier for you to search through you’ll enjoy you time on the site more and perhaps find the caravan you’re looking for.

We’d really like to know what you think of these changes. If you’ve got any comments please leave them below.

admin Caravan News, Lotus Caravans, Overland Caravans

Gold Coast Caravan Sales have been proud supporters of Lismore’s 4WD Caravan, Camping & Marine Show for over 10 years. This year they are particularly excited to be able to display the very latest models from Lotus Caravans and to also introduce visitors to the Overland Aspire & Walkabout range of caravans.

Lotus have recently celebrated 10 years of building top quality touring vans, both on and off road, while the boutique Overland range is designed by and built exclusively for Gold Coast Caravan Sales by one of Melbourne’s most highly respected caravan manufacturers.

*** UPDATE: The NSW Department of Fair Trading has determined that only caravan dealers/manufacturers with licensed premises in NSW can exhibit at the Lismore 4WD Caravan, Camping & Marine Show on July 3–5. As a consequence, Gold Coast Caravan Sales will not be in attendance with their range of Lotus and Overland Aspire caravans. We had been looking forward to catching up with our many customers from the North Coast and Northern Rivers areas.

The Gold Coast Caravan Sales team will welcome visitors to the 2015 Gold Coast Midyear Caravan & Camping Expo at the Gold Coast Turf Club on July 24–26 and the 2015 Queensland Outdoor Adventure & Motoring Expo from July 31–August 02 at the Toowoomaba Showgrounds. ***Paul & Lester, Gold Coast Caravan Sales

Gold Coast Caravan Sales are the only Lotus dealer between Sydney and Brisbane. Visitors to the Show from the Mid North Coast, Northern Rivers & South East Queensland will have the opportunity of viewing the very latest models in the Lotus range.

The Lotus Trooper is the most highly sought after all terrain touring caravan of its type on the market today. It has taken caravanning for the off road enthusiast to a new level in quality, style and comfort and is packed with standard features regarded as optional by many other manufacturers.

The Lotus Freelander is the perfect caravan for all Australian conditions. Whether gravel roads or the highway the Freelander, which has Control Rider independent suspension and 16” wheels, offers a beautifully smooth and stable ride. The stunning interior with leather upholstery contrasts remarkably with the rugged good looks of the Freelander’s exterior. The standard inclusions of twin 120 watt solar panels and batteries, twin 95 litre water tanks and large storage boxes makes the Freelander the ideal caravan for extended periods of free camping.

Long regarded as one of Australia’s finest on-road touring caravans, the new look Lotus Sprint now offers upgraded standard features including Simplicity independent suspension, a single 120 watt solar panel, external shower and LED lights throughout. The lower towing weights of the Lotus Sprint range make it a viable alternative to the larger Trooper and Freelander models.

The public’s response to the Overland range of caravans has been remarkable. With tow away prices starting at $56,900 for the Overland Aspire 186, all models represent exceptional value for money. The introduction of the Overland Walkabout 196 with Cruisemaster CRS independent suspension on 16” wheels, is really turning heads in the semi off-road market.

Paul, Lester & the team look forward to welcoming visitors to sites 157 – 159 at the Lismore 4WD Caravan, Camping & Marine Show.

Off-Road Caravans

admin All Terrain Caravans

Off-road caravans make sense for Australian conditions. It’s hard to get too far off the beaten track without getting away from sealed roads. So, with an off-road caravan you know that you can go that little bit further and not have to question whether your van is capable of taking you to those out of the way camp sites and attractions.

At Gold Coast Caravan Sales we have a great representation of off-road caravans in our listings. We’ve recently brought Lotus Caravans into our fold, who have gained an outstanding reputation over the last ten years for the design and construction of off-road caravans. The complete Lotus Caravan range offer varying degrees of off-road capabilities. Lotus is a true leader in the off-road market.

We also have a great range of Royal Flair caravans, who have ventured into the serious off-road market with the impressive range of Aussiemate caravans. The Royal Flair Aussiemate range have certainly attracted the attention of customers who are looking for an off-road caravan that offers exciting modern interiors, design and strength. Take a look and you will be surprised! The Aussiemate packages represent true value for money.

The great thing about all the off-road caravans represented by either Lotus and Royal Flair is you don’t sacrifice your comfort for the sake of a little ruggedness. When you pull up in the middle of nowhere you’ll be able to sit back and relax in your home away from home.

There are four models in the Lotus range. We’ve recently updated our pages for those models so you can find all the specifications and gallery images right here at Gold Coast Caravan Sales.
