Construction & Manufacturing

Chassis, Suspension & Z-Channels

The underpinnings of a caravan are crucial to how a caravan behaves on the freeway, on unpaved roads, off-road and ultimately at the campsite. Our symbiotic development process of the Chassis and Suspension provides the best all-round experience while towing.


Don’t compromise on the foundations of your caravan. At Urban Caravans we have partnered with the industry experts at X-Treme Chassis to design and manufacture bespoke underpinnings for each and every one of our caravans.

Achieving off-road prowess and competency stems from a no-compromise suspension. Our bespoke chassis from X-Treme Chassis was co-developed with the award-winning TerraGlide Suspension in mind. Pairing the X-Treme Chassis with the TerraGlide Suspension provides a balanced and composed caravan ride both on-road and off-road. The Award Winning TerraGlide Suspension has been designed and developed by the Australian automotive engineering firm – PremCar.

Why is the Z-Channel So Important?

We use a Z-CHANNEL on the chassis. This allows for the TIG Welded Aluminium Frame to sit on the side of the chassis. Therefore the frame is bolted directly to the chassis and not sitting on top of the floor. With a stronger connection and more contact points, this method of joining the frame and the chassis is by far the most effective.
