Avida Warranty, Insurance & RV Help
The Avida Guarantee
Customer support is paramount at Avida and that’s why every new Avida motorhome or caravan has a very important attribute we simply call “peace of mind” with our market leading 3 year (or 1 million kilometre for Motorhomes) factory backed warranty, 5 year structural guarantee, 2 year emergency roadside assistance.
To protect your warranty, it is a requirement to maintain your recreational vehicle in accordance with the owner’s manual. In particular, you must present your recreational vehicle for service every 6 months within the first 3 year warranty period.
Motorhomes and caravans are complex machines and many people are often confused as to why warranty periods differ in some instances depending on the item concerned.
Motorhomes and caravans comprise three main components:
- The Chassis – Warranty on the chassis component is offered by the manufacturer of the chassis. Check with your local dealership to find out the warranty period on your chassis. The caravan chassis is manufactured by Avida and covered under the 3 year manufacturer warranty as offered by Avida.
- The Motorhome or Caravan – Body, furniture and fittings manufactured by Avida are covered under the 3 year manufacturer warranty as offered by Avida.
- The Appliances – Refrigerator, air conditioner, television and hot water system to name a few all have their own warranty offered by the respective manufacturers of each component; just like a normal home where the home builder generally doesn’t warrant the washing machine for example.
Built with extra strength, ground clearance and protection. The Multi Terrain caravan allows you to go outback, down unsealed roads and through some corrugations. Always be mindful of speed when driving over corrugations, make extra provisions when heading outback and most importantly, drive safely.
Built with extra strength, ground clearance and protection, for prolonged off-road usage. The Off Road caravan allows you to go outback, down unsealed roads and over corrugations. Always be mindful of speed when driving over corrugations and under no circumstances should these caravans be exposed to water crossings above draw bar height. Make extra provisions when heading outback and most importantly, drive safely.
Avida’s Off Road caravan is not designed for extreme 4WD tracks that are unsuitable for towing large trailers. If you’re looking to do some four wheel driving we strongly recommend that you unhook your caravan, leave it in a secure location and head off exploring in your tow vehicle. Always ensure you make extra provisions when heading outback and most importantly, drive safely.
- Australian gas regulations require that your caravan must be vented, this limits the effectiveness against dust and water ingress.
- Movement or damage caused by dislodgment of appliances and fittings resulting from impact, heavy landings, severely rutted roads, or tracks are not covered under warranty.
You should read your handbook folder to fully understand what is offered on each component of your Avida motorhome or caravan. If in doubt, please call us for assistance on (02) 4948 0433.
