Why build my caravan or RV with DIY composite panels?

A revolution is underway in the caravan industry regarding the way the shells are built and attached to the chassis. The benefits are normally only available to regular manufacturers – but now DIY Caravans can make these latest developments available to all DIY customers.

In addition, DIY can offer customers a choice of several different composite panel kits from high quality Australian companies from Victoria to Queensland.

The benefits to the DIY builder are huge:

  1. It’s easy.
    •  Simply design your panel kit to fit neatly on your chassis or frame… and use adhesive to attach the parts to each other
  2. It’s quick.
    • No more timber or aluminium frames and cladding the exterior and the interior with sheeting that leaks. Each composite panel is the whole wall – completely finished
