2014 Review: Australian Off Road Matrix

MICHAEL BROWNING — 2 September 2014

Enjoy the latest CW video review, with contributor Michael Browning testing out Australian Off Road's unique Matrix caravan. With the mix of a fresh new design and adaptable size, this series makes it easier to travel to once hard to reach, remote locations; such as the Bungle Bungle ranges and other Australian National Parks.


The Matrix has a jam packed amount of new features, housing a very generous sized kitchen, dinette and queen size bed - offering plenty of storage space inside in order to easily manoeuvre around and accommodate every occasion.

One of the other key aspects Michael mentions is the incorporated dust proofing methods, created to allow for less time cleaning and maintaining the vehicle itself.

It's a monocoque construction, allowing for more efficient use of roof space and height. And with fully fibre glass walls in place, it is not only a very solid structure, but also easy to tow and can be put behind any medium sized off road tow vehicle. 

Built to last, with nearly all aspects of the vehicle being made in house in Caloundra by Australian Off Road - the Matrix is high up on the list of best caravans going around.

Twin shock absorption and trailing arm coil spring suspension help in any off road situation, along with the use of skid bars to save any damage occurring to the body work. 

The Verdict

Although the price tag may not fit all budgets, as Michael states "There's none with this size, that has everything in it and the quality of finish" on the market.  

It tows beautifully, is lightweight, has independent suspension and on a single axle makes it easy to take over rough terrain and thanks to the streamline design, hardly effected by the wind.
