Soft floor camper for sale “Mini Mobile Convertible”

What makes this one special?
I purchased this as a pallet camper in 2003.
It had been stored sealed up and unused since new by the original owner. Made by Hardings in Bayswater, and probably made in the late 1970's judging by the funky colour scheme.  
(bolts to trailer with 4x coach bolts, easily removed by 2 adults, you can perch the camper on a pair of saw horses and use the trailer for general duties)
See images from the manufacturer's brochure.

Compact, lightweight (for a steel-bodied camper) the trailer is 3 foot 6 inchs by 6 feet, with 10 inch wheels. Total rig weighs 300kg so easily towable by any car that can tow a trailer.
We drove it to the Daintree and back with a clapped out 1982 Sigma wagon with no problems. Towed to Flinders Ranges and back by a Mitsubishi Lancer. On a more modern Magna, it makes very little difference to the car's economy or drivability.

Good size for a young family, easily sleeps 2 adults and 2 teenage kids inside with room to move
built in awning, flips over to double your space, poles and guys included.
Set up is fairly quick as the travel cover allows you to keep the kids beds, chairs etc on top of the bed. Also the way the frame is designed means you don't need to peg the camper down.

Condition is very good. There are stains, some discolouration spots, a few pinholes on the side walls, a couple of patches on spots where there has been wear. The canvas attaches with pop-studs to the trailer and can be taken off easily for repair- we have replaced the door zip with a heavy duty one about 6 years ago. I replaced a flyscreen this year which was damaged- cost $110 to fix. The travel cover is getting worn and may need replacing in a few years, any canvas repairer can work on this camper.
I usually put a cheap tarp down on the ground before unfolding the camper to protect the camper floor, also keeps it a lot cleaner for packing up

Custom features
Comfy futon mattress on slat base, much better than foam camper mattress, the slats allow air movement so it does not get mouldy or musty like foam mattresses do. The bed is about 195 x 132cm
If you are more than 6 feet tall, it may be a problem.

Shade cloth panels made to suit the awning for protection and privacy

Battery box, with circuit breakers, volt meter, trickle charger
3x 12v sockets on camper plus one for fridge
Lockable side box that is concealed when the camper is open
Quality 10a Solar regulator
Folding solar panel
Fitted interior light- handy for setting up after dark
12v power supply for running 12v appliances at a powered site
Thermoelectric cooler included

Caravan water tank under the floor with hand pump and electric pump
Pole box for annex poles
Jerry can box- good for ground sheets, tarps etc- this is the only really rusty spot at the moment, needs descale and spot paint
Spare wheel underslung on draw bar
Swing down jockey wheel and 2 wind- down stabilisers

This is a great little rig, selling as kids are grown up and looking at a hard shell camper
Some camping equipment included, including a quality folding camp kitchen, some 12v gadgets etc,
Some high quality tropical tarps with extra poles and pegs. You can see them in some pics.
Extension socket driver for demounting the camper from the trailer and for undoing the wheel nuts
There is a customised draw bar box for a fridge that I will throw in, if you want it.

I can help fit and test a battery to suit your needs, we have run a 75ah deep cycle marine battery with no problems. Current battery is a cheapy car battery and needs replacement, as it is dead.

Ideally you should fit a battery isolator to your car and run a separate cable to the camper battery with an anderson plug.

I can also fit and wire the trailer plug to suit your car, the current plug needs replacing- this is included in sale price

Suggested maintenance
We just cover it with a tarp when not in use.
Wirebrush any rusty spots on the trailer every 3 years or so and patch with “cold gal” paint
Get your trailer hubs greased before a long trip
Don't let the camper stay folded up wet- you can pack it and travel wet for a day, I just use a $2 drop sheet to protect the mattress from damp, but then you need to air and dry it completely to protect the canvas from mildew
