New Age Caravans has today launched the all-new MY24 Manta Ray range, with three sizes - each with two variations - available to order now through New Age Caravans dealerships Australia wide.

The MY24 Manta Ray comes in 19ft, 18ft and 16ft sizes, all with ensuites as standard, with all three sizes available in standard or Adventurer models.

The new Manta Ray caravan is ideal for couples or singles seeking to travel Australia in style, with all the space you need.

As a standard feature, all Manta Ray caravans come furnished with an ensuite featuring shower and toilet, a fully equipped kitchen, and a spacious layout design.

Like the recently launched MY24 Road Owl range, once inside one of the new MY24 Manta Ray caravans and you’ll notice a stylish new redesign of furniture and lighting that has eliminated the use of roof mounted downlights, lifting the aesthetic with LED strip lighting throughout.

In the dining area you’ll find redesigned seats with more cushion depth and lumbar support than ever before. In the kitchen area, you’ll discover a stylish new microwave surround that’s been designed to keep your microwave safe and secure even when travelling over bumpy roads.

A recessed cook top has now been added extending the use of the bench top for more preparation area and more space – but it doesn’t stop there. The new interior also features handy reading lights with three adjustable settings that accompany a new wireless charger for the bedroom area.

The Adventurer models have the Cruisemaster all-terrain XT independent suspension, combined with the Walkinshaw designed galvanised chassis, meaning the caravan is ready for all terrains.

All MY24 Manta Rays will have the Bosch Tow Assist Electronic Stability Control fitted as standard, to ensure the highest possible safety on the road, as well as lithium charger options on all four caravans, for those taking their trip off-grid.

The range also has complete Vehicle Type Approval as per the upcoming Road Vehicle Standards Act (RVSA) introduction.

The Australian Design Rules (ADRs), which the Vehicle Type Approvals are associated with, are national design rules that mandate minimum safety standards, dimensional requirements, structural requirements as well as performance and emission targets for all vehicles that are registered for travel on Australian roads. The RVSA ensures that the process of building a New Age Caravan is documented and structured to ensure repeatability during the manufacturing process from start to finish.

The MY24 Manta Ray range will soon enter the production line at the New Age Caravans manufacturing facility in Epping, Victoria, with the first expected on the road in Q3 of this year, with prices starting from $79,000.

Chris Polites - Managing Director, New Age Caravans

“It’s fantastic for us at New Age Caravans to launch our new and improved Manta Ray range, perfect for couples or the solo-traveler exploring our great country.

“Following on from the new Road Owl that was launched recently, we’ve taken the same approach with the Manta Ray - a fresh look with a raft of modern upgrades to take it to a new level. Inside and out, the inclusions and options available mean the Manta Ray is a market leader at an affordable price.

“The new Manta Ray continues the journey we are on here at New Age Caravans as we enter a new era, and we can’t wait to see those blue exteriors hit the road later this year.
