The History of Regent Caravans
Manufacturing Luxury Caravans for 30 Years
Regent Caravans was borne from a humble and small family operation with a fondness for travel.
Initially, the Regent brand built Pop Tops, and Touring vans and established itself as one of the premium brands in the market.
After 20 years and roughly 10,000 happy Regent owners, the brand changed hands in 2012, with Caravans Australia taking over and adding it to their stable of caravan brands.
Caravans Australia modernised the factory and production process and updated the models. The first 2 models under new management debuted at the Adelaide caravan show in 2013.
The Cruiser line had firmly established itself in the Regent stable and the Cruiser was one of the first models of the new production line to debut on the show circuit.
Despite the change of ownership the high standard of design, build quality and luxury fittings remained a constant.
In 2015 Caravans Australia split to focus more on their imported caravan brands and the Regent brand was acquired by the New Gonow Group (China). The New Gonow Group is a huge company with 6 factories, 1,500 employees in China and a global reputation for caravan and motorhome design and build quality.
Under new ownership, the Regent brand continued growing including expanding internationally with the addition of our first New Zealand dealership.
In 2021, Regent evolved again. They moved on from using old-fashioned and problematic wood construction toward an all-new full composite sandwich panel technology. This advanced process is beyond reach for most local caravan builders and again sets Regent as the brand to watch.
The Northern Suburbs of Melbourne (Campebelfiled, Somerton) is the centre of the Australian caravan industry and has been the home of Regent Caravans for the last 30 years. Today we operate 2 assembly plants in Somerton and proudly employ over 130 people, making Regent home to one of the largest caravan factories in Australia.
In 2022 we added an additional factory in Somerton
