If a tree falls in the bush on a Roadstar™ caravan...

While holidaying in Inskip Point in south-east Queensland, Roadstar™ customers Roxy and Alan were enjoying their home away from home when they were surprised by a loud crash – the gumtree next to them dropped a broken branch on the roof of their caravan!

After the stray tree branch was removed, Roxy and Alan noticed that the roof of the caravan rebounded straight back into shape – there was no visible damage to the façade at all.

What’s more, that day also brought a storm to Inskip Point, and with it came 400mm of rain. There were no water leaks, even after such a large branch landed heavily on the caravan’s roof.

We think Roxy and Alan sum it up best themselves:

“We couldn’t believe how resilient the van was, a branch that big and no signs of damage. And to then have a storm with 400mm of rain and not a leak – that’s Roadstar for you!”

What a fantastic testament to the durability and quality of Roadstar™ sealant and manufacturing!

From everyone here at Roadstar™, we’d like to give a big thank you to Roxy and Alan for sharing their story; we hope you continue to enjoy the benefits of choosing one of our caravans for years to come.

At the tail end of a storm that flooded much of Vic in early September, we rolled into the Coolaroo factory of Roadstar Caravans. The weather forecast was more or less on our side – if we pushed through the rain along the Geelong Freeway, we’d be greeted by a clear sky at the Great Ocean Road (GOR), which was to be our testing ground. Then, with a tandem-axle Roadstar Limited Edition hitched to our Land Cruiser Troopie, we headed south at a cautious 80km/h. The wind was up, the clouds swollen and grey. But we were determined...
