Caravan Renovations and Modifications

Victoria's Leading RV Service and Repair Centre

Considering a renovation?

Advantage Caravan Repairs has become renowned for our renovations to second hand caravans. It is true that many people enter the caravan market via purchasing a second hand caravan. Put simply, second hand caravans can and do offer much of what you would find in a new van, but often at a fraction of the cost. Buying new is not for everyone. In addition to saving some money a renovated caravan offers you input into the layout and overall design and they simply have great character!


The story of Milly

Milly is testament to this. Milly, is a 1980 York caravan fully restored by ACR, as featured in Caravan and Motorhome Magazine. Milly now boasts:


  • a modern and fresh interior

  • brand new appliances

  • new aluminium cladding to the exterior

  • stylish designer pin striping

  • and a host of other accessories

Completed, Milly is as functional and comfortable as her modern day counterparts. In addition Milly is one of a kind. She has a uniqueness that simply is not present in a new van.

So how can we help you to renovate?

At ACR, we can take a renovation or modification as far as you would like it. You may be interested in a small renovation, replacing two single beds with a double for example. Or your requirements may be more substantial. Whatever your needs, we can assist and progress your ideas, into a design and then an outcome.

A word on modifications

Do you have a great van, but for whatever reason its not quite meeting your needs anymore? Kids moved on maybe and you no longer need those bunks? Well maybe a modification is what you are after. Don't despair, you don't need to rush off and sell your van. Often a modification is a great way to ensure that you have exactly what you want and need in your van.
