OUR MISSION

Quality, Innovation, Community, After sales service.

The foundation of AOR. Our actions and best business practices are built on these principles. Every aspect of AOR relates directly to one or more of these principles. We are constantly monitoring to ensure we exceed our own goals.

QUALITY

The best of the best

The quest for a quality product and quality work practices is ingrained. From the colours we carefully select to the materials we use, our trailers are designed to be beautiful. When you sit in our trailers you relax because everything fits so beautifully. This feeling stays with you during ownership and beyond. In a quality product, form is used to enhance but not intrude on how an object functions. It’s easy to make ugly, it costs more to achieve simplicity in function and beauty in form.

INNOVATION

The creative heart of the off-road industry

We are leading innovators in the industry. Everyone innovates the products they produce, but innovation must be tightly controlled. It must be accomplished in baby steps followed by rigorous testing and implementation of new production systems to support the manufacturing processes otherwise quality will suffer.

AFTER SALES SERVICE

Have complete confidence, we back our product.

With three AOR Service Centers and an Australia wide network of over 50 approved service agents, you can have complete confidence travelling in the toughest elements. Every new AOR comes with a 12-month parts and labor warranty and a promise that your new trailer is free from workmanship or material defects. The chassis comes with an extended 5-year warranty.

COMMUNITY

Stay connected, share insights

With a range of channels to stay in touch, we regularly update our online presence including our websites and social media. Our Owners Forum is a great way to get involved in the community. An invaluable platform to ask questions and gain insights from vastly experienced owners. From setting up your tow vehicle to looking for the best camping spot, our Owners Forum covers almost every topic.

THE AOR DIFFERENCE

Heritage

Manufacturing quality Aussie made trailers for 20 years.

Our trailers don’t just look great, they work! They handle the worst the outback can give.

Cheaper products copying our designs have a key ingredient missing – they have no heritage! We have tested our trailers for years and refined our designs in many areas that others can’t possibly copy. We have trailers that have done over 200,000km of off road travel and are still going strong.

We keep our designs aesthetically pleasing but functional. Some people say they only want a dirt road van but there is no such thing. It’s either full off road or forget it. There is no such thing as a partial. Our designs are 100% dust proof with sealed fridge vents and heater vents, fully steel shrouded water tanks and full independent suspension with massive dual shock absorber assemblies. Remote camping features other manufacturers can only dream about. These are the benefits of years of testing and improving the brand that is Australian Off Road.

AOR Support

Our sales staff are here to support you and answer all your questions but talking with an owner in your area can often also be arranged. We have many dedicated enthusiasts in most areas willing to meet you and show you how they selected the options and features that make our trailers work so well.

AOR at work

AOR prides itself on recruiting a very high standard of staff. Our 80 strong workforce consists of a mix of

  • School based apprentices that we employ through the Queensland Government’s GenR8 youth engagement program.
  • Apprentices – gaining their engineering certificate specializing in sheet metal fabrication.
  • Roles in administration, sales, marketing, drafting, safety, warehousing and logistics.
  • Fully qualified tradesmen and women with upholstery, manufacturing trades and detailing skills.
  • Highly trained professionals who efficiently run the organization from a management level.

We have worked hard to achieve an open dialogue between all departments and staff. This helps us to maintain a transparent understanding of the businesses operations at al ltimes. It also has a ripple effect through to the high-end quality of our products and future growth opportunities.

Our showroom allows enough space for eight to ten caravans with a dedicated Customer Handover Area and a Customer Lounge where you will be able to wait in air conditioned comfort while your van is serviced. There is a Display Area for all our products that allow for easy access, demonstration and viewing in air conditioned comfort. We have also created a viewing platform in the mezzanine that has lift access for wheelchairs. From this area you can view the internal workings of Australian Off Road and appreciate what makes a great delivery for you without the need for WHS requirements.

We can also conduct factory escorted tours through the centre of our state-of-the-art Lean Manufacturing Production Facility, which is fully endorsed and accredited by the RVMAA, our industry peak governing body. Here you will see the trailers being assembled by some of our 80 plus dedicated tradespeople. You will see the craftsmanship and professional expertise that have made AOR famous throughout the industry. You can also witness the prototype trailers that will form the future model line-up of AOR during the design and construction phase.

There are many sections that make AOR function as a well-oiled unit. You will be shown through the fabrication area where all our chassis, suspension and external framing are constructed, the component manufacturing area where we mass produce and quality control the hundreds of parts that make our trailers so unique. Our huge assembly area with 12 build lines allows you to inspect the various phases of assembly. This is really where you will witness and appreciate what makes a great trailer.

Our facility also houses our Insurance repair section where we restore to original condition using factory AOR parts and build practices the damaged trailers that are freighted to us from Australia wide. Our trailers are also almost unique in the industry in being amongst a small number of caravans that can actually be repaired as they are not made from lightweight timber. Most insurance companies are happy to freight directly to our factory for our original repairs.

Also situated in this area is our very busy Servicing Section where we have a steady flow of trailers booked in from all over Australia for service and upgrades. Any warranty issues are also attended to here.

Externally we have provided ample parking for your showroom visit or your van servicing.

AOR Research

AOR has an established Research and Development Department to assist you to achieve your dream camper or caravan. We are continuously working on innovative designs and even make it possible for you to create your own. With our extensive knowledge and experience, the AOR team will assist you in customising your high-quality trailer or caravan according to you and your family’s personal needs.

Steve Budden is the Managing Director of Australian Off Road and the head of our R & D department. He has many years’ experience in the design and manufacture of Campers, Super campers and Caravans specifically for the off-road market. Steve’s design capacity is not only office bound. He and wife Rhonda conduct extensive first-hand testing and travel in all AOR trailers, testing that includes checking dust-proofing, ergonomics, ease of towing and the integrity of components.

The first design was the legendary Odyssey that went on to become Camper Trailer of the Year in 2011, a camper that has become the benchmark by which others are judged. Steve also designed the first Supercampers in Australia, the original Quantum and more recently the Matrix, Aurora and Quantum Plus which have become industry benchmark trailers and caravans.

Steve has many more exciting designs to come, and backed by his dedicated team he can design the camper or caravan of your dreams. Your dream can become our reality. We know what works and what doesn’t in off road situations as we have vast knowledge based on years of off road design and travel.

We will guide you through from the initial quoting stage to the end product with 3D Solidworks Cad drawings, detailed quoting and photographs of your build as it progresses through our workshop.

AOR Resale

Resale value is often not considered when purchasing an off road camper, supercamper or caravan. We all consider the resale value of our car when making the decision to buy new or second hand, so why not our camper?

AOR products retain the highest residual resale values in the industry. While others may copy our designs and colour schemes they lack our industry leading quality and value for money. Why is this? With our superior quality and exclusivity of our vehicles, you can rest assure your investment maintains its value. This allows you to confidently reinvest in our new products, continue your off road experiences and allow longevity of your dreams.

Being the best is not just a mantra, we walk the walk and we deliver the goods. Most people will upgrade to a second and third new model.

We are a specialized manufacturer, our products are exclusive in the industry and our production lead-time is usually up to six months from order. This makes older well-maintained trailers that are available very valuable items, thus maintaining resale value for owners. This cycle encourages owners to return and have confidence to invest in a new AOR trailer.

All customers are treated to the same high levels of customer service, no exceptions. This extends to our second hand market, who receive the same levels of service our new customers would expect, along with the benefits and services AOR ownership encompasses – 24hr service and warranty hot-line and National service network.

Maximize your buying decision by investing in AOR exclusivity.
