 Our last premises

Starting in the industry as a detailer in 1983; Dave Benson worked his way up into sales. From there, he progressed to running Adelaide's Viscount dealership at the age of 23. Dave established Dave Benson Caravans with wife Tania in 1994 and built the business to the 5th largest independant RV dealership in Australia, selling the following major lines: Galaxy, Goldstream, Trailcraft, TVan, Cub, Supreme, Concept, Camp-let, Explorer, Flagstaff, Kookaburra, Waeco, along with the Australian & New Zealand distributorship for Canine Campers.

In late July 2007 Dave & Tania Benson elected to take their advice to hundreds of customers and "take the time to travel this great country" and sold the business to another South Australian icon, The Smith Group, the parent of Smith Motor Company (Smith's).
With the backing of The Smith Group, Dave Benson Caravans continues to offer the highest levels of customer satisfaction, personalised service and innovation to the RV market not only in South Australia but also Australia wide.
Custom building continues to be a specialty at Dave Benson Caravans. This gives you the opportunity to build a Recreational Vehicle to your specifications and for your required applications rather than having to modify your wants and needs. Many clients prefer to 'tweak' or add features to the layout of their choice. Some even start from scratch and design their RV from the ground up. We are always more than happy to help in customising your individual RV.
Getting awayDave Benson Caravans has been built on strong foundations with experienced, professional, customer focused staff with expertise to the highest standards. Dave Benson Caravans prides itself on top quality products at the best possible prices with the best customer service in Australia. This, backed by the 14 National Dealership Awards for excellence, it's no wonder people travel from all over Australia to purchase at DBC.
