We purchased our Dreamline model JB 16192 in August 2016 and have travelled long distances in it on the whole we are very pleased with it however the main door has given us trouble since day one.
We have replaced the the handles twice and now the lock has gone on it.
We were unable to unlock it,and now have no lock and unable to join 2 doors together.Extremely disappointing. Purchased at Newcastle.

Purchased in August 2016.

Awesome Caravan


We picked up our new Dirt RoaderExtreme and are extremely happy with it. The attention to detail in all aspects is Outstanding. We did a factory tour of JB in Melbourne and are so pleased we did it. It gave us total peace of mind to see the way they were built and the quality control. Also the handover was excellent. They went through everything it detail. It tows perfectly. All in all we could not be happier and we are very impressed with JB. Thank you.

Purchased in July 2019.

Picked up our Extreme in May 2018. Everything was perfect, everything working. Have now done thousands of kilometres and have had nothing go wrong. Would buy another.
They simply are Just Brillant.

Service could not of been better


Don’t normally rate. But found this service excellent. Van was good but service was great. Had a few small issues that you would expect with a second hand van. They went above and beyond. Walter especially. The handover of the van was extremely thorough

As the name says Just Brilliant!.


My wife and I have recently taken delivery of our 2017 Milano. 23.6 looks awesome and tows perfectly.
We could not be more happy with the service, design and quality of the workmanship.
We looked at many different brands of caravans over a two year period and kept going back to JB nothing came close to the JB brand.
The staff at Caboolture are a pleasure to deal with and Dan bent over backwards on several occasions to meet our needs. We would in particular like to thank Brendan for all his help throughout the last two years of our research on the JB brand.
If you are thinking of buying a new or used caravan you owe it to yourself to at least have a look at this brand.

Thanks JB could not be happier.
Jo & Andre.

JB caravan update


We have given the 21ft Dirtroader a warranty shakedown. Just been to Flinders Ranges, Birdsville and now on way back to BRISBANE.
This trip has been 6,000 K and the van has been fantastic. Went on rough and dust roads. The only dust to penetrate was through the fridge vent, which is my issue and not JB's. So all in all the quality and finish and strength cannot be question. Would have no problem recommending this van.

JB caravans are just that - JUST BRILLIANT


We recently purchased a 20ft 6 Scorpion from JB Caravans at Caboolture. The sales and delivery staff were excellent and attended to our every wish. We took it for a shakedown on the dustiest and roughest roads we could find. Absolutely no problems and not one sign of any dust inside whatsoever (can't say the same for the outside). Since had a service and their staff could not do enough for us. Should be named JTB - JUST THE BEST.



First trip in our JB 19ft dirt roader


Up thru Lyndhurst on to Strzelecki into Innamincka camped on Cooper, off to Noccundra, then Thargomindah, then Yowah, Toompine, Quilpie, Charleville, Mitchell, Roma, then into Dicky beach,back down to Wagga Wagga camped on Murrumbidgee, pump played up, phoned JB, into Melbourne JB factory met Glen fixed immediately, smelt gas at cooker, immediately checked including pressure test all OK , went thru factory, cannot fault service, very impressed with van and JB on to Adelaide and home, would recommend JB van excellent . 19'Off road,3.2t susp, 3tanks, 3solar panels, 2spares, 6"chassis, leather, great layout , all good so far. Traveled approx 7500 km including many free camps.

Pre delivery checks very poor


Flooring holes not sealed solar incorrectly wired, brake cable rubbing against tyre, cheap batteries, shockers not suited to off road van, all strip lighting had to be replaced, we have had huge costs all extra within two years that we should not have had to endure. Two chargers have been replaced which could have been avoided if pre delivery check had been done. Very disappointing

No Stabilizer Bars Not Satisfactory


Take care when taking delivery of your JB. I was badly advised. When the van was hitched to my Disco 2 the ball weight was so heavy that the tow bar was almost scraping the ground. The workmen then turned my tow bar over, so it was higher off the ground and I was sent on my way; with my front wheels only just on the ground. I then had to make my own arrangements to have stabilizer bars attached. This should have been done pre delivery as I believe I was not roadworthy when I left the factory. Staff in Queensland told me they always fit stabilizer bars, so why not the factory in Melbourne.

This is simply not satisfactory.

Dishonest Salesman!!!


I recently purchased a used van only 2 year old, guaranteed it was in excellent condition.When towing van empty it fish tailed madly near causing an accident on freeway.Contacted salesman his remedy was just manually operate trailer brakes!!!!!!Contacted previous owner and found out the problem was there from day one.He told me he was sick of the lack of interest in trying to get it fixed and traded it on another van,and low and behold it was the same salesman who sold it to me as sold it new,knowing full well of the serious problem with the van. Beware of jb sales people they prepared to tell you anything to get a sale!!!!!

Picked up the van this week. What a great service given by Bill and the team at JB Caravans Caboolture. We are delighted with the finish and minor repairs that have been done. We have no hesitation in recommending the team at Canoolture.

We've had this caravan now for 11 months and continue to be very happy with it. There has never been any question in having warranty work completed promptly.

JB Scorpion 17ft10 suits Prado Weights


"Just Brilliant" like it says We absolutely love our new Scorpion It has everything we needed without add on extras costing extra The design engineers did lots of changes for us Eg extra solid Outside Handle including one next to shower A Double Step Full Fridge lifted up higher We have a leather Lounge No mirrors in robes Full Oven Washing Machine and a very efficient shower and toilet A fusion stereo system with USB DVD/cd IPod Dock Inside Outside Marine Speakers An Awning 22" Led Fusion Flat Screen TV
It met our TARE weight for our Diesel Toyota Prado
Small items needed fixing under warranty which was easily done



Very very bad caravans


You can tell everything cheap in the caravans we have bought caravan from this campony I would not recommend to anybody. They caravans leak and having brake problem the stove doesn't work. We have paid $59,000 and many many problems we come cross. Until they sold us the van they were very very help full after the problems started 3 months time we spoke the owner [name removed] they are very very unproffecinal and they asked us to pay money to get it fixed when it was still under warranty. We are disgusted I wouldnt not recommend this campony to anybody our other friend also had similar problems. Very bad customer service.

Leaking water stove didint work brake wasn't working

What would be the average price of a 2016 JB dreamliner 16ft

No answers



Does the dust hatch in roof work. There is no filter. Any body sealed the internal fridge vents above and below fridge. Seems external vents should provide enough air?

No answers



Any known problems off road with this model?

Hi MLO, we have had our DR extreme now for six months & taken it off road and have had no problems. Steve


Thanks Steve, we live in the Kimberley and dirt roads are par for the course, the places we would be visiting are only accessible via the dirt, so that is good to know.
It's like everything else, nice and steady and things work out okay.

Mark, yes I was told that about just taking it a bit slower and you can get through most situations in the bush. We havent done any real hard places yet just fairly easy off road but we are heading up your way in March April next year and continuing across the top to Qld. Should be a great trip. I bought a caravan cover last week as I dont have an undercover area and wanted to protect our bight orange JB stickers & paint, lol. Take care & we might cross paths up north.
