AL-KO Australia has announced a “revolutionary” new lightweight LightR™ chassis concept designed specifically to reduce the weight of Australian caravans. AL-KO says it offers “significant” weight savings compared to the traditional type of chassis usually used for caravans built in Australia.
It is a hot-dipped galvanised steel chassis designed to retain the strong and durable characteristics required for the tough Australian conditions; however, it has been engineered to remove unrequired chassis material based on the design of the caravan.
As you would expect, it can integrate with the AL-KO Enduro independent trailing arm suspension, and has been tested for Australian conditions.
