OUR HOME away from home was the clever Patriot X1 camper. Fully laden it’s a little over a tonne, yet cleverly folds out to a two-bedroom home with a comprehensive kitchen, barbecue, fridge and even a shower.
As sister magazine Camper Trailer Australia’s Camper Trailer Of The Year, it’s a rugged package claimed to go wherever the car can, which is lucky, because we decided to put it to the test.
It’s good knowing you can get a tad more adventurous without having to worry about what’s hitched behind.
It takes about 15 minutes to assemble everything in place, including the optional second bedroom attached to ours. Complete with a king-sized main bed, loads of storage pockets and even in-built lighting, it’s a luxurious way to go camping – anywhere.
