Best Aussie Vans 2015: The full results
Here are the full reviews and results for all of the competing rigs

Late last year we kicked off the 2015 Best Aussie Vans, the largest RV shootout in the country, held in East Gippsland, Victoria.

Festivities began with that sweet spot in the market – the $50K-$65K category. The rejuvenated Compass Navigator took on the Franklin Arrow and the Bailey Rangefinder Astro and came up trumps due to its high quality build and affordability.

This category was followed by a four-way contest in the $65K-$80K group between the Regal RSV, the New Age Manta Ray, the Concept Innovation and the On the Move Traxx. After taking line honours in the $80K+ category last year with its Grenade, On the Move Caravans stood on the top of the podium yet again with its stunning offroad Traxx.

Here are the full reviews and results for all of the competing rigs.

$50-$65K
