I saw them advertised on Ebay and tried to find out who the maker was but the agent wasn't forthcoming with too much info only that they were new to the market [ Duhhh] and they used to work for another company!!!! Well priced tho'. Seems to be too many new builders flogging cheap ensuite vans making it bloody hard for us to sell ours. Market is flooded with 2nd hand vans at present.
Cheers Doug

Who Makes them????
Check the vans VIN Plate for the makers name.

The Kokoda Caravans brand name was registered with Office of Fair Trading & Business Affairs,Victoria on the 9/09/2011.
I can find no record of a company being registered in that name which would indicate the the brand is manufactured by another van builder.
This is quite a common occurance in the RV industry.
Once the builders name is known then it would be easier for members to answer your question.
However, take note that generally there won't be many negative posts due to the ever present threat of litigation.
Cheers,
Ozjohn.

Tojo,
Mate that's info that a trademark registration has been applied for, but as I posted above there is no evidence of Kokoda Caravans being registered with A.S.I.C. as a company. So who makes them?
I rang a few industry insiders and to date I can't find anyone who knows George Mamo.
One other thing is that I reckon the RSL will scream pretty loud when they see the brand name on the road as to them the name Kokoda is sacred.
Cheers,
OJ

I suppose the next question is "who are Condor Caravans". Seems to be a new name come and go every month or so. I have some relations from Scotland staying at the moment who are motorhomers/caravanners and I mentioned that there are around 100 manufacturers in OZ and they thought I was pulling their legs.
