If the name Bushtracker suggests something a little more rugged to you that run of the mill travel trailers, then you’d be right. This is a company that is proud of it’s robust units and has set out, successfully by the looks of things, to put right the things that have been wrong with caravans over the last forty years. They have examined the problems, found what caused failures when travelling in the outback, and put them right.
These units have their own sterilising unit for water purification, they have solar panels built in and come equipped with compressor drive fridge units. They have set out to be the best at producing this kind of caravan and it looks as if they have created a unique product with few if any imitators. Starting with and off-road trailer built onto the strongest four wheeled drive load sharing independent suspension ensure a tough based for any vehicle, including a caravan.
This caravan is watertight to 1.2 meters and even has a watertight door for closing over the regular door in case you need it. The Bushtracker factory uses native Tasmanian Oak and utilises aircraft technology for a really very tough product indeed.
I live and tour in western Europe, I never leave the tarmac and the only off-road place that I ‘ve ever taken a caravan is onto a nice level grass pitch in a caravan park. I now however want want of these.
This is another manufacturer of a rugged off road camper unit. They also produce a high quality product for campers that want to leave paved road and camp in places other than recognised camping and caravan parks. The Campomatic is essentially a trailer tent built on a rugged off-road trailer chassis with all the bits added that you may want or need while you’re out there .
This company has paid specific attention to getting the trailer balance correct for the type of vehicle that is likely to tow it and has designed the approach and departure angles to match or exceed those provided on a lot of 4wd tow-cars.
The checker-plate wedge box on the front of the units is designed to take a very useful fridge and you can opt to add the Honda EU 10i or EU 20i generators to your purchase. This generator can also be accommodated in the wedge box which has drop-down doors for ease of access. The sides of the box are angled to help deflect stones, helping to protect both your trailer and the tow-car.
One of the really clever features of this camper is the kitchen. It slides out from the rigid body of the trailer just to the front of the left hand side wheel. When this compartment is locked in place ready for travelling it it sealed against the ingress of dust and dirt which means that as soon as you slide it out it’s ready for you to go work. It is made from stainless steel so is highly efficient and very easy to clean. Because it pulls out horizontally it’s possible for three people to work easily around it, and conceivably it is possible for one to prepare one to cook and one to wash up all at the same time.
This off-road camper makes it very easy for you to take to the water by incorporating a boat lift to allow you to get your craft on top of the trailer before you move off. It also has a locker where your outboard motor can be stored and secured while you on the road to your next adventure. I want one of these units also.
