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.

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.
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.
JB Caravan 20ft Dirt Roader
We purchased our new van and took delivery in November 2014. We are happy with our caravan, it tows and handles well. We are extremely happy with the layout. It does have a number of minor things that require attention but I think that is with most new vans. We have been extremely happy with the service given by the Caboolture Team both from the ordering and handover of the van to the service department. Spoke to the Service Department person today and he was very obliging and assured us that the warranty work will be completed. He was mor...e than happy to book the van in at a time to suit us to have these minor repairs rectified. The service shown to us this far has been very professional and we feel confident that the repairs will reflect the same. Just returned our van to JB Caravans Caboolture for a number of little things to be fixed under warranty. Must say we drove away feeling confident that these problems would be handled professionally. Couldn't fault the team at JB Caboolture.
Questions & 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.

Our water pump just blew all battery power in our van is there a safety switch that we need to reset
