Best of the Best 2017
What’s Up Downunder has proudly partnered with Dometic on our 2017 Convoy for Charity!
On an amazing journey down to the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, we recruited eight of the ‘Best of the Best’ caravans and RV’s on this amazing journey not only to explore what the beautiful shores of South Australia have to offer, but to also raise money for National Breast Cancer Foundation Australia along the way.
Caravan industry expert Justine from Dometic believes that the best caravan is built for the right purpose; with products on board, air conditioning, fridges and components. Not to mention a good chassis and a solid build- you need something that you know is absolutely ready to get out on the open road!

Dean and Courtney Goudie know caravans inside and out.
Both of them have been caravanning since they were kids. Dean left school at the age of 15 to take up a job in repairing accident damaged cars and caravans. He won apprentice of the year 2 out of the 3 years he was at trade school.
Dean and Courtney started their own repair shop in Yarrawonga in 2004 at the age of 21. The vision was clear to deliver good quality repairs with customer service that was second to none.
After many years in the industry Dean and Courtney decided to open Yarrawonga Caravans and sell high quality caravans at a price that people could afford. They have now opened Albury Caravans on Wagga Rd, Lavington.
In January 2014 their dream became a reality, Dean works with 2 caravan builders having input into the design, structure and finish of every caravan.
The builders Yarrawonga Caravans use are La Vista Caravans for all of the “on road” caravans and Masterpiece Caravans for the “off road” caravans. Both builders build to their own very high standards with Dean’s watchful eye going over the vans every step of the way as Dean visits the factories every week.
Dean and Courtney have such a great knowledge when it comes to caravanning around this great country of ours because it has been their life for so many years and now they take their 3 kids away in their caravan any chance they get so their kids can enjoy all Australia has to offer.
Great off road performance means Rhino Max campers will go where ever you and your 4WD want to take them, whether you’re heading through Cape York or across The Simpson Desert you will find Rhino Max campers easy to handle even in the harshest of conditions.
All their campers are manufactured in Australia utilising the best of materials and Australian canvas.
Australian Made may need a little more explanation, as this is a claim many companies make. Rhinomax Campers are made from 100% AUSTRALIAN STEEL with 100% AUSTRALIAN CANVAS all made on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
With over 30 years experience in the engineering industry they utilise their industry experience to offer a quality product at an affordable price. Rolls Royce training has taught them that quality is no accident and after you have looked over their campers, you will agree.
Rhinomax Campers have been ‘Built To Go the Distance’.
