Aluminium Rot Free
Frame

There was no other way, except to go for an Aluminium Frame. For us, it has always been clear that an aluminium frame is more durable, longer-lasting and better suited for off-road caravans. The simple fact that it will not rot, was more than enough to convince me.

Steve - Founder of Urban Caravans

Why an Aluminium Frame?

Aluminium frames are more durable, longer-lasting and provide higher levels of rigidity over traditional wooden framed caravans.

How is an
Aluminium Frame
Better?

Caravans that have aluminium frames have many advantages over their wooden counterparts. Beyond the longer-lasting, rot free frames, aluminium frames also have structural advantages. Additionally, caravans built by Urban Caravans use Tig Welds for rigidity and Lock Bolting to join the different aluminium panels together. Lock Bolting gives our tig welded aluminium caravans flexibility and give for offroad use.

Rot Free Frame
No More Rot

With little water ingress and some time, wooden frames can suffer major structural damage. These damages can result in the caravan no longer being fit for purpose. If the base plate is damaged, then there is no way out. Timber rot can set in due to something simple as a broken light seal. Composite floors and walls are also victims of water ingress, something you will not have to worry about with our Aluminium Framed caravans.
