Crafter Kampervan has been extensively tested at the Anglesea Proving Ground in Victoria, showcasing not only Australian engineering inside the vehicle – but testing and tuning that makes it perfect for local conditions.

The Crafter Kampervan will come in seven colours, including four two-tone schemes, which are expected to be by far the most popular.
