Manufacturing Success

CW Staff — 1 July 2021
Technology and toughness come together in this manufacturer

Mountain Trail RV, a manufacturer based in New South Wales, is dedicated to bringing the latest technology and engineering processes into the high-end offroad caravan, camper, and hybrid markets. Its Mountain Trail FXV 6.5 is the perfect example, using cutting-edge techniques to build the lightest, strongest, and most durable family-sized offroader possible.

From the outside, the FXV 6.5 may look like an average offroad caravan — but it’s the construction and design that make it so special. The Mountain Trail team take pride in doing all of their engineering and construction in-house, including their own laser and CNC cutting, developing their own components wherever possible and designing new build processes to achieve the best results.

A laser-cut RHS chassis removes 100kg from the van’s total weight, and Mountain Trail’s laser-cut aluminium cabinets mean there’s no joinery or wood in the entire van. This makes for a lighter and more durable anti-fatigue design that won’t shake apart on heavily corrugated roads.

Automated electronic dust suppression keeps the interior clean, while automated self-levelling suspension keeps setup simple in camp. 720 watts of solar and large water capacity mean you can stay camped out for longer.

Mountain Trail’s pride in their manufacturing doesn’t end when you drive off the lot, either, with the company promising ongoing customer support for the life of its vans.

If you’re looking for a top of the line family offroader, the FXV 6.5 makes use of all the latest innovations to make one of the best vans you could consider.
