Kimberley Offroad Caravan 30th Anniversary Edition
There are few places in Australia that evoke the spirit of the rugged outdoor experience than the Kimberley in north-Western Australia, an expanse of nearly 500,000 square kilometres of rugged ranges, limestones cliffs, dramatic gorges, arid expanses and untouched coastline.
Access is difficult and paved roads are few. This is the sunburnt continent at its most brutal and most beautiful.
So, it’s no surprise that the idea for Kimberley Kampers was hatched on a camping trip to this distant region with the dream of helping adventurous spirits find and enjoy their own space in safety and comfort.
In late 1993, Kimberley Kampers was born. Built to withstand the demands and challenges of the Kimberley but with the comforts and convenience of home. To celebrate this milestone Kimberley Kampers are producing a limited range of 30th Anniversary Edition models across the entire range with some key features and unique changes.
With the current off-road caravan market still very buoyant and demand for the Kimberley product at an all time high, the factory R&D Team have been focussed on delivering more value and a better experience to our loyal customers.
After some fundamental changes in the last few years including the highly successful swing away toilet and the actuator lifting system in the Karavan, the team have been working on innovation and making sure KK remains at the top of their game.
New 30th Anniversary Edition models will be available across the entire Kimberley range with a mixture of the new features included and options available.

The new 30th Anniversary Edition Eco-Suite Karavan comes with:
• x12 New features as standard
• x7 New options for customisation
1) New Air and Hose Kit
Presented in a custom Kimberley Karry Bag, a heavy duty compressor hose kit including:
- A high accuracy 3 in 1 digital tire inflator gauge for pumping up tyres on the go. This features a digital LCD screen even when not connected to the compressor, a bleed valve for dropping tyre pressures quickly.
- Adjustable air blow gun for cleaning dust and water off seals before opening or closing your unit.
- Quick connect high quality coiled hose lead able to reach all areas of the van.
- Easily accessible air chuck outlet.
2) New Remote Reservoir KK Shock Absorbers
As with all real offroading, the KK suspension’s have stood the test of time and have been rated some of the best in the market. Taking it to a new level we are pleased to release our next generation in KK Shocks by Profender racing.
Valved and made to our exact specifications the remote reservoir shock absorbers allow our suspensions to run cooler for longer on the endless corrugations the Outback is famous for. The increased oil capacity allows better cooling and increases the service life of the oil.
Additionally the added gas volume help compression and rebound valves to retain consistency under severe offroad conditions.
3) New 100% recycled PET flooring
First in Australia – 100% recycled ArmaPET flooring from Armacell. From an empty bottle to a high-tech foam, KK now uses 100% recycled plastic as a unique highly durable, high energy efficiency and fully sustainable solution to the flooring in the Karavan.
With an added benefit of highly heat resistant, engineered and tested for strength and durability this new product paves the way forward for a sustainable future.
4) New Composite walls
Composite sandwich panel made from European FRP sheets and the core is a closed cell rigid extruded polystyrene. These are custom made in-house at KK and CNC routed to precision.
Not only class leading U-Values for insulation properties but the closed cell eliminates leaks and water ingress and has excellent strength.
With strategically placed pultrusion, these vacuum bagged panels are extremely lightweight but also strong.
5) New grease points – Zerk fittings
Finally a user friendly option to ensure your suspension is always well lubricated without being a contortionist under the Van in the dust. The new remote ‘Zerk’ fitting grease points make on the road maintenance a breeze.
6) New Step Cover
New 30th Anniversary branded SeaDek foam step cover for the Bed Step creating an appealing and warm finish to the bed step at the base of the bed.
7) Cooker / Sink Swap
By strategically swapping the internal cooker with the sink, we have now created a “real” full size ensuite in the Karavan.
This new area doubles up as an ensuite and vanity basin as well as a food prep or washing internal kitchen. Swapping the cabinetry has also gives you more useable space.
8) New Ensuite Curtain
The new curtain enables you to use the toilet, shower and new “Vanity” area in complete privacy. Conveniently rolling back you still have the use of the full multimedia compliment from the seating area without major disruption.
9) New Neon full width tail light bar – brakes and park lights
To modernise the rear lighting on the Karavan we will develop a signature tail light configuration.
The rear end of the Kimberley will become very noticeable and as well as being safer for the driver with better brake and park light visibility we believe the new look modernises the lighting we already have.
A solid neon full width light bar finished in an impressive carbon print finish.
10) New Larger driver side windows
In our effort to bring the “outside in” and create as much natural light as possible, as much air flow as possible and as open plan living as possible, the Karavan Canopy gets a makeover with both driver side (right side) windows increasing in size by 60%. That is 60% more natural light, air flow and views.
11) 48V Power Hub
Kimberley will be moving into the future of RV power with the adoption of 48V power systems. 48V presents a new way of running your KK.
With a 48V system the configuration allows for a more direct energy path to run higher voltage appliances as we move away from a Gas Society. This efficiency is significant and when running Air conditioners, Induction cookers, microwaves, coffee machines and washing machines your energy savings can be exponential over a 12V system. With the higher voltage and lower amps there is a remarkable saving in voltage drop over distances once again increasing efficiency.
Lighter wiring and cables
The cabling required to run high loads to your inverter and other appliances is significantly reduced in size and cost helping offset some of the higher costs of the system.
Because they run a higher efficiency while using fewer amps, a 48V system can operate appliances more safely than lower voltage systems.
Better weight to power density
Running a 48V battery pack your power to weight ratios are much higher than a 12V system. This can be as much as 20% better off.
INTRODUCING the NEW – SMART 48V Power Hub with Control Panel and DC/AC Distribution Panel
- X-Stream fast charging 3000W AC charger
- 3600W AC Pure Sinewave inverter
- 70Amp DC Output at 13.6V
- x2 Solar regulators 1600W max and 60amp DC/DC Charger (1000W)
- Bluetooth and WIFI connected
- Also includes SMART Monitor for total power control
With the KK Installation there will be considerably more space in the front Multibox storage box as the battery and reconfigured air systems allow better use of space for the end user.
There is far better control and monitoring of the system through the Smart Console, App and the distribution panel.
12) 48V Lithium SMART Batteries
The new 48V Battery systems will be available in a scalable configuration ranging from 2,000W Battery at 48V to a 10,000W at 48V power system that is the equivalent of over 800 amps at 12V (current KK lithium batteries).
The new 30th Anniversary Eco-Suite Karavan will have a 5,000W 48V battery as standard with an optional 5,000W battery doubling your power capabilities. With the X-Stream fast charging and the “coming soon” EV charge station charging capability, there will be plenty of options in the Karavan to replenish your power consumption.
