3: INNOVATORS NOT IMMITATORS
Over recent years with the growth of the free-camping style of caravan travel, there has been a huge amount of other brands merge across to a so called off-road version from their traditional on-road style of products, together with the copy-cat style of newly formed 'custom building experts'… It's certainly been difficult to keep up with the new names. While there was a growing demand, and a limited build availability of true off-road specialist builders with trusted credibility, it had given a chance for these to mushroom up, and after a honeymoon stage of them supplying product, a run of unforseen problems for customers could only be expected from their lack of knowledge. It has been unfortunate to be hearing stories from people regretful of purchasing these, with appliances falling off walls, fridges and microwaves coming out, excessive dust entry etc…. to layouts built to any desire that create either an unbalanced tow or huge ball-weights, affecting the steering and braking of the tow-vehicles…..the list goes on, and it all comes from inexperience. It's not good to hear, for the customers first and foremost, nor is it good for anyone involved and the industry as a whole.

Not everyone wants to do the extreme 4WD style of travel we do, we know that, though it's great peace of mind to know that with the extreme testing and experience for manufacturing of a suitable product, it will handle it if need be!

INSIST ON AN INTERLOCKED ALUMINIUM FRAME!
DON’T RISK TIMBER FRAME WET / DRY ROT!

WHY RISK TIMBER FRAME ROT-2

What’s under the surface of your van is crucial for it’s reliability, longevity & resale down the track! With so many more so called ‘off-road’ makers coming onto the market, & some pushing out volume, they can short-cut underneath the skin of the van. Being in the business so long, and doing insurance repairs on a great deal of different models it has been somewhat surprising and even worrying seeing some build techniques.

ASK THE QUESTION, DOES THE VAN I’M LOOKING AT HAVE:

#AN INTERLOCKED ALUMINIUM WALL FRAME?

# IS IT SECURED BY SOLID STEEL PIN (ANTI-VIBRATION) HENROB PINS AS KEDRON or JUST RIVETS?

#A WELDED ONE PIECE ALUMINIUM ROOF FRAME?

# IS THE WALL FRAME SECURED BOTH WAYS WITH COLLARED CIRCLE THREAD ‘HUCK BOLTS’?

5: FACTORY DIRECT

You are dealing direct with The Manufacturer!

KEDRON Factory - 10 Deakin St Brendale 3

There is no middle-man, no transport costs built in (or deletion of features or build quality to offset), no mix-ups between dealership and factories for order specifications with layouts / colours and delivery dates etc….

6: CUSTOMER SERVICE
We consistently hear from folk saying they can't beleive how fantastic and personalised the service is in comparison to their previous experience or friends who were basically sat for their paperwork, given the keys and shown where the van was to hitch up themselves….All our deliveries are at the factory and generally take around 4 to 5 hours.

After the new vans are fussed over in pre-delivery with water and solar testing completed, on the day of delivery they are set-up inside awaiting customer arrival.

The tow-vehicle is reversed in and while our contracted auto-electrician wires electric-brake controller, anderson charge plug and reverse camera to the vehicle if needed.

Folk are run through the operations of features included in their van, both inside and out.

Hitching up is run through, with load-distribution hitches fitted and shown also, together with roll-out awning operation, paperwork and rego completed with a cuppa and subsequently a road test is undertaken. Most all tow-tests include a run up the hilly surrounds, around the industrial estate then out on the highway to encompass a variation of different travel conditions, with adjustment of electric brakes explained to ensure customers are comfortable with knowledge of how the system works and we are also of the towing characteristics of their new package!

Returning to the factory, the van is reversed in with well wishes and thanks, to be towed out the gate with a friendly smile and a welcome to the Kedron Family!

We aren't about being the biggest in turnover, instead, quality product with great service, from the ordering process to the day of pick-up and after-sales service!

7: TRUE OFF-ROAD WARRANTY

Yes, it's true that even though some build raised clearance / larger wheel style of caravans, if they are taken 'off-road' or deemed to be mis-used from excessive corrugations or the like, that the warranty is void.Kedron has a solid reputation, tested over time, of a fantastic support base, Australia-wide if required. We try to get the vans as solid and reliable right from the start, though if you live inter-state and are wondering about support, it's there, and we can call upon many service agents Australia-wide to assist when / if need be for peace of mind!

 8: THE PRODUCT
Can have all the back-up, though you need to have the right product to start with! We have continually developed the KEDRONs to be of utmost reliability and to be suitable for the intended travel as much as possible!

The Strength of Chassis, Interlocked Aluminium Frame with solid steel pin fixing as the major structure base is why they are so strong and rot-proof!

There are so many areas that others can shortcut to save money, that when outlined you can see the difference of a true off-road manufacture and why the reputation has stood the test of time to be such a solid reliable build!

KEDRON has had the same chassis engineer building since commencing, these are each custom-built (and not short cutted with trimming unseen strength like some copy builds), hot-dipped galvanised for the utmost corrosion protection, and wall frames huck-bolted to the chassis with galvanised plates sideways and downwards with solid block insulation.

A long term crew of timber craftsmen fit the CNC routed furniture and the manufacturing team all take great pride in the product and their workmanship.

9: A GREATER RANGE
We used to be known more so for our robust larger vans, well the range has extended and morphed into a fantastic range now including lighter and more affordable mid-size 4WD compatible vans for this growing market, with single axle XC-3's having a tare weight as low as 1750kg's, to then run right up to 24 ft XC-3 tandem caravans also. The range is then complimented with the ATV and TopEnder ranges of further more deluxe, robust and fully-featured units as well.

10: PRE-DELIVERY
Each of our custom-built vans are run through with a check-list by our dedicated pre-delivery representative. All appliances are run and tested, from air con's, fridges being efficiency tested to check temp's, to hot water systems and finish detail of furniture etc, and have a dedicated water and solar bay testing bay.

We are not all about just production and sales, being a family business, we continually assist various groups and charities supporting those in need. Our licencing payments for our clips to various American and English production companies for TV use, to filming with Toyota, we have for many years contributed 100% of proceeds from these to various charity groups for assisting their great work!

12: CORPORATE ASSOCIATIONS / AMBASSADORSHIPS

We have a fantastic extended history of driving Toyota's as a family, going hand in hand with a caravan requiring a tow vehicle, it was only natural to develop a relationship with of all companies, Toyota.

Over the years we had built great trusted relationships with dealerships, and as the popularity of the Gall Boys Adventures grew, this extended through to Toyota Australia, and in 2008 became official ambassadors.

We have valued this relationship greatly, through many of the departments, with a great respect and friendship grown over the years. Contrary to what some may expect, we don't have any commission for referrals of new vehicles to dealers, just a great relationship built and we know that they will be looked after for stock availabilty and a great new vehicle buying experience to compliment the van for them!

Over our previous adventures we have purchased all our own support vehicles by choice, and for the lead vehilces that we have tested, prior their return, if wearing some cosmetic dents we invest to have these brought back to condition out of respect, the way Dad has brought us up.

More recently Toyota do support with camera vehicles for the trips, though as we really put the gear under the test, we like to purchase the lead drive vehicle, and is Dave’s daily drive car upon return!

Since filmed some clips for the likes of Genuine Accessories,

with 100% of payment for time taken to do so donated to a spread of charities that Toyota was good enough to fund!

Just a great mutual relationship of trust with a fantastic company, product and team!

& FINALLY...RE-SALE!
Re-sale prices of products are a great indication of their worth in the market, and the Kedron product continually commands great re-sale in line with condition maintained! When it comes time to sell or upgrade your van, it's great to know that all the factors above assist the KEDRON reputation so that your pre-owned van maintains a strong demand in the used caravan marketplace too!

We wish everyone with whatever brand caravan they have, all the very best for HAPPY & SAFE TRAVELS! As at the end of the day, it's all about enjoying the caravanning lifestyle this fantastic country offers us with such freedom, and with such an abundance to see and do, whether it be by yourself or with your partner or friends, it's just magic! There's nothing like hitting the open road, giving a friendly wave to those heading the other direction with the same spirit of travel and pulling up to set camp, daze at the stars around a campfire and enjoy a warm cuppa or a cold one with old or new friends! 
Regards, from all the KEDRON Team & Gall Family
