Caravan World presents a selection of the best budget caravans under or around $50,000 from the Sydney Caravan Supershow. Check out our list, read our reviews, and discover where to buy cheap caravans.

It’s no secret that the Australian caravan market is packed to the gills in the popular $50,000-$65,000 price category, and you can always find what you want at the top end of the market as well. But those looking to spend a little bit less often feel their options are limited.

So, with this in mind, Caravan World visited the Sydney Caravan Supershow to find out exactly what’s available at the lower end of the market.

This list is by no means exclusive, and there are many others out there, but it gives a good indication of the variety of vans available under, or around, $50,000.

It includes single and tandem-axle vans, on and offroad varieties, vans for couples and for families and those which can be towed by the family car, as well as larger tow vehicles, so there really is something for everyone.
