Off-Road Camper Trailer
Camper trailers, caravans, and motorhomes have become a common sight across Australia, with an increasing number of people joining the bandwagon. While some limit their travels to where roads can take them, some other prefer creating their own paths. If you’re hoping to take in what Australia’s outback has to offer, an off-road camper trailer might serve your purpose well.Hard or Soft Floor
Hard floor camper trailers are typically more expensive than models that come with soft floors. A hard floor alternative is usually easier to clean and quicker to setup. However, a soft floor camper tends to come with more space and weighs lesser. Weight might be a concern so check your vehicle’s towing capacity before deciding.The Space You Will Use
How much room do you need from your new off-road camper trailer and what purpose do you want it to serve? While most can sleep at least two people, you can find models that can accommodate six to seven individuals. Some camper trailers come with roll-out kitchens, and some others offer detachable units that you may place just about anywhere. If you don’t want to be bothered with heavy black water, you might consider getting a camper trailer with a waterless toilet. Bear in mind, though, that a chemical toilet might limit the use of your camper trailer in National Parks as well as in the outback, where there’s no access to sewage systems.Off-Road Capability
How well equipped an off-road camper trailer is to deal with rugged terrain mainly depends on the type of suspension it uses. Inferior suspension systems might seem more cost-effective, but they tend to come with high wear rates. You should ideally look for completely independent coil-sprung suspensions that offer twin-shock absorber technology working in tandem.Other Intricacies
When you’re off the road, you’ll need dust proofing. Opt for refrigerators that some with internal vents and make sure that door vents and inlets of hot water systems remain covered. If weight is a concern, avoid models that use wood and opt for ones made using carbon fibre, fibreglass, high-grade alloys, and stainless or galvanised steel. The kind of heating system a camper trailer comes with also needs your attention, where your options include diesel, gas, and combination heaters.
