About RetroPower

Our Story

The Retropower Group consists of Retropower, Retro RV & Marine and Retrolooms.

Darren started in 1992 as D&A Auto-Electrical, a part time business started by Darren and Anette. It began in their garage with the wiring of racecars, caravans, boats and custom cars. The business continued part time until 2005 when Darren took a redundancy package from his ‘day job’ and with the ‘part-time’ business now built to a stage where the garage was in no way large enough due to the addition of wiring custom-built fleet vehicles and breakdown assistant vehicles, a new premises was sought. In 2006, the business moved into a factory on Cambro Road Clayton, and D&A Auto-Electrical now became RETROLOOMS.

Staying there for 3 years till a more permanent factory was located, on June 30th 2009, Retrolooms moved (right around the corner from Cambro Rd.) to its present location at 42 Renver Road Clayton and has now grown to accommodate CEO Marley (and his assistant Kobi), 3-4 permanent staff in the workshop, a sales rep by the name of Paul Reidy, Darren – ‘general dogs body’ and Anette looks after accounts and payroll. With the permanency of the Renver Road premises, the location specially consists of a large wide secured driveway beside the factory which can accommodate 1 to 3 of the largest sized motor homes, caravans or 5th wheelers available. It also allows customers to either park early in the morning or late in the evening alleviating the need for them to drive to (or from) the factory when traffic is heavy.

Retrolooms became the service agent for Oyster Satellite systems back in 2008 and for Webasto and Victron products in 2014. Sometime between 2014 and today Retrolooms also became the preferred repairer/installer for Redarc products.

Throughout 2020, we noticed the Retrolooms expanding and changing direction significantly; especially with the caravan industry and domestic travel booming over the last year – we were quoting and installing more electrical fit-outs than ever before!

Therefore, we made the decision to re-brand our business to follow in this direction.

Retropower is now our main company name, to focus on our expertise in:

  • Designing and installing custom 12V to 240V power solutions,
  • Designing and installing mobile electrical systems,
  • Designing and installing off-grid renewable power systems,
  • Retrofitting to new renewable energy solutions,
  • Technical support and supply for trade and wholesale clients for small off-grid solutions,
  • Victron technical specialists and taking care of Victron warranties and repairs.


Retrolooms continues to produce low-volume manufacturing for our current clients, but with the extremely large price increases in raw materials since COVID, unfortunately we may be implementing price increases across a range of our custom-products, but we will ensure to give you as much notice as possible.


We have implemented the name Retro RV & Marine for all our much treasured Caravan, RV & Motorhome customers, as this industry continue to grow and we will always be here to service your vehicles and retro-fit to your custom requirements! We are still the Webasto Service Agent for Victoria, and continue to supply and support top brands such as; Victron, Redarc, Enerdrive, WiTi, Elecbrakes, GSL, Oyster Satellite, Cinderella Eco, and many more!
