Recreational Vehicle Manufacturing Accreditation Program (RVMAP) | Lets Go Caravan and Camping

Recreational Vehicle Manufacturing Accreditation Program (RVMAP)

Category: News, Date: 14 November 2023

Working towards a safer RV industry

RVMAP is a voluntary Australian Design Rules (ADRs) educational and inspection program focussing on safety. 

Australian Design Rules (ADRs) are national standards for vehicle safety, anti-theft and emissions. 

Industry businesses sign an RVMAP licence, committing to consistently supply RV product that adheres to relevant ADRs and Federal compliance regulations.  

Caravan Industry Association of Australia regularly checks this commitment through the inspection of product and paperwork at factories, dealerships and at consumer shows.   

Camper trailer product carries the RVMAP Camper badge (normally located next to the entrance door) with all other locally manufactured RV product carrying the RVMAP Manufacturer badge.

The RVMAP International badge is a clear indication to the consumer that the product has its origins in an offshore market.

The RVMAP inspection team has opened up over 5,000 inspection files in recent years, with RVMAP licenced businesses on a like for like inspection recording on average nearly three times less ADR compliance issues per product inspected.  Of the 100 worst businesses inspected for ADR compliance, only 3 are RVMAP businesses (74th, 91st and 93rd). 

Don’t risk your loved one’s safety! 

So, when looking to purchase a new caravan, camper or motorhome, look for the ‘key’!!
