At the forefront of Australian remote travelling since 1997

With a well established and rich history building custom off-road touring camper trailers and micro-hybrids Pioneer Campers has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 1997.

Pioneer Campers is now a part of the TRACK Group. An Australian Family Owned and Operated business specialising in design and development of sheet-metal off-road campers and caravans including the Tvan and T4. This Group includes TRACK, Trakmaster, Pioneer and Outback HQ.

In 2011 Pioneer Campers began a journey to create premium off-road “flip-over” campers using sheet-metal and CAD. This spawned a new generation of highly engineered and extremely reliable campers. The journey continued with the release of the Pioneer Mitchell a micro-hybrid off-road Camper. The Mitchell won Camper of the Year and was well regarded for its innovative approach to hybrid camping.

Change of pace

Complete model refresh. Moving into sheetmetal designs


The Road Vehicle Standards Act (RVSA) is the biggest legislative change the Australian Caravan Industry has seen in over 30 years. For Recreational Vehicle Manufacturers and Importers in Australia, the RVSA is set to completely transform the industry as we know it.

The Road Vehicle Standards Act (RVSA) 2018 is replacing the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989.   The RVSA better reflects the significant changes in global and domestic vehicle markets and improvements in vehicle technologies over the last few decades.

RVMAP is an Australian Design Rule (ADR) and Federal compliance voluntarily educational program providing necessary inspection, education, and technical advice.

“Working towards a safer RV industry”


The Caravan Industry Victoria (CIV) was formed in 1952 to foster the growth of caravanning holidays in Victoria. The Association quickly became an integral body for like-minded entrepreneurs who were manufacturing caravans, recreational vehicles, RV accessories and technology in Victoria.

Today, 90 per cent of all caravan manufacturing in Australia takes place in Victoria. Major component suppliers use Victoria as their base including chassis manufacturers, timber, aluminium and fibreglass suppliers. There are also a growing number of electronics and alternative power manufacturers.
