In this episode Andy chats with ZONE RV Founder Dave Biggar. These days ZONE RV are one of the major premium Off-Road caravan manufactures on OZ. But it wasn't always that way. We go back to the beginning when Composite Caravans were just a thought bubble in Daves mind to today where they operate at premium price points with Caravans selling regularly up to $250,000. With over 1,000 vans sold and over 400 on the order books Zone RV is now a major player in the premium RV market. We talk about the R&D Dave and the boys did back in the early days and how now his whole family are caravan enthusiasts. Emulating so many other young families using caravans as the holiday of choice. Dave and Andy explore the growing pains of a successful company and how the Zone Customer Community has grown to three active FB pages and the caravan customers themselves organise get togethers called Zone Musters. We discuss how some of the components in van manufacture from Europe and Asia sometimes struggle in the harsh Australian caravan environment and the problems that causes all Australian manufacturers.
We discuss the future direction for ZoneRV and that may surprise you!
On the day this published Dave was on the way with the family to Fraser Island to holiday, great to see company leaders walking the walk.
