Our Story

After gaining 6-7 years of experience in the industry I (Dham) wanted to implement my own ideas into practice. So I sat in front of my computer and started sketching few different layouts, shapes and different styles of cabinets. That’s how my 21’ Hilltop Hotham was born. I could sell my first Hotham without any waiting period and I could get few orders from it.

Customer review for the first HOTHAM

(Obtained from Google Review on 23.08.2019)

We purchased the first Hotham caravan which was released in 2015, since then we have travelled all over Australia. We estimate that the van has travelled about 50,000 kilometres on both sealed and unsealed roads. The only problem that we have encountered is the Truma Boiler hot water service, the heating element has had to be replaced three times and the boiler sprung a leak and was replaced.
Over the years we have owned a number of vans but this one is by far the best.
The workmanship of the van is excellent, thankyou.

Gradually we could increase the production by getting new workers and training them one by one. Because of the continuous demand and good feedback from existing customers I thought of designing new layouts and models. My IT skills were very much helpful for me to plan very practical layouts. By mid of year 2019 Hilltop has produced over 17 different layouts.

The blend of my Caravan & Technical skills and Dula’s Financial & Management Skills have been helpful to uplift the standard of Hilltop Caravans.

By the help of our network of dealerships, fellow staff members, and all of my existing customers, we could uplift the standard of Hilltop Caravans. I highly believe that everyone of you will give your continuous support and feedback in order to uplift the quality of Hilltop Caravans.

  • When it comes to the manufacturing process Hilltop uses all best products, strictly stick with strong frame work with 2B1 timber frames (42mmx19mm) and always maintain very close gaps with timber when making frames. Roof and walls are well insulated with 17mm styrene and apply proper support before cladding.
  • Stick furniture construction method increases the strength and help reducing the weight of the final product.
  • All electrical are carefully designed and pre-prepared gaps for running wires make less damages and do not affect the structural strength of the van.
