Badger Caravans is officially up and running from their Durban premises. Though Badger Caravans was hard hit by the unrest in the KZN area and the upheaval caused by the Covid lockdowns, they are now back in full production. They officially they launched their caravan range at the Caravan Show at Gallagher estate in Gauteng in 2020, and it is a welcome addition to the light pop-up caravan range in South Africa.
Badger has taken their caravan design to new levels with an improved version of the slide-out concept. Also featured is a new age clip and fold design which unfolds giving you and your partner enough headroom and makes a welcome addition of space utilisation.

In May of this year Badger delivered the first of their caravans fitted with the Enduro Outback independent suspension by AL-KO who are the world leaders in caravan chassis and component technology. A key feature of the product is the integration of premium AL-KO shock absorbers. Other features include: Australian made 4×4 coil springs, maintenance free bushes and integrated tow and camber adjustment. There is no doubt that this suspension technology is the best solution for all the heavy off-roading and adventurous clients who are up for outdoor challenges.
While it conquers challenging off-road terrain, it delivers comfort and handling when needed most. In fact, the Badger team was so impressed by the towing of this caravan that they have decided to produce their very own Badger Extreme fitted with this exact suspension.
