Gerard Waldron (director TRACK) and Wayne Gason (MD Gason Industries) jointly announced that TRACK has acquired Trakmaster Off-Road Caravans and Pioneer Campers.
This deal, which will see these brands stay on our shores has been in negotiation since early December 2019 and the agreement transfers all the intellectual property for both the design/manufacture and marketing of both brands to TRACK.
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.
