Design & Build Quality
Avida has been investing in the most advanced technology since 1965 and is at the cutting edge of design in Australia, that’s led to the most technologically advanced manufacturing plant in Sydney Australia.
From the latest three dimensional CAD software, the computer numeric controlled (CNC) cutting equipment, though to our unique PUR hot melt adhesive lamination and cutting system, the technology Avida use is second to none.
Our decades of investment into Research and Design means our products are more advanced than any of our competitors.

Avida strives to build motorhomes, caravans and campervans that are light weight, value for money and friendly to the environment whilst still offering the peace of mind with our industry leading Warranty and Aftersales Support.
Our motorhome and caravan body construction offers strength and durability second to none, the engineered body is designed for Australia’s tough climate. The floor is the key – it supports the walls as the walls are fixed to the top of the floor, not just screwed to the floor side. The roof then sits on the top of the walls thus all stress loads are shared and the body and roof gains additional strength.
Avida focuses heavily on its Quality Control processes to ensure the final product is as free of manufacturing defects as possible. We have a quality gate system throughout our production process that ensures a great product of the end of the production lines. We also work closely with our suppliers to ensure that only quality grade material and components are used in the manufacture of each Avida.
Research and Development
Avida has invested heavily in Research and Development with design, engineering and machinery and by investing in the latest technology from around the world and by adding good old Aussie know how, allows Avida to lead the industry in product development.

Australian Industry Accredited
RVMAP, Australia’s Caravan Industry accreditation program requires all RV’s produced by members to comply fully with all safety regulations, including Australian Design Rules and Australian Standards.
