Jayco is a key player in the caravan and camper trailer industry and its latest Dove Outback is testament to its 40 years’ experience in RV manufacturing.

Often underrated, this camper is an extremely well-priced and appointed camper from Australia’s market leader, supported by the biggest dealer network in the country. No matter which way you measure it, you can’t go past this rig for value for money.

The Dove Outback is the kind of camper that serves as a good introduction to the great outdoors in the way a soft-roader SUV wagon does — it’ll cope with dirt roads and slow beach or dune driving. It is no hardcore offroad camper — and was never meant to be — but it has ample features to make the most of a camping trip.
