Their devotion and commitment to the R & D of a modern contemporary caravan design has placed them at the forefront of the industry.

By the end of 2012 they had their own retail arm staff had increased by 40% and New Age Caravans were producing over 800 caravans a year, this was achieved through improvements in design, quality and overall business acumen.
A new manufacturing facility was established in 2013 in Epping Victoria. This expansion underpinned the level of growth the company had achieved in such a small period of time. Production had increased as had the focus on detail, the purchasing process and most importantly the advancement of designs and options available to a burgeoning customer base, with 10 model ranges and 35 layouts available.
In 2019 after more than 10 years of growth, New Age Caravans was purchased by Walkinshaw performance. The Walkinshaw name first came to prominence in Australia when Tom Walkinshaw first started racing his Factory Jaguar XJS at the Bathurst 1000 in 1984, followed by a three-vehicle assault on Mount Panorama in 1985. This foray was the catalyst for a growing presence in the Australian automotive landscape, eventually seeing Walkinshaw becoming the engine room behind the iconic brands of the Holden Racing Team and Holden Special Vehicles. With cutting edge technology and engineering expertise injected into the business, the future of New Age Caravans is looking bright.
