KIM­BER­LEY KAMPERS TO DE­BUT CAM­PER FOR CHINA’S ROADS

Camper Trailer Australia - - NEWS -

Set against the ‘Silk Road’ dunes,

Kim­ber­ley Kampers will re­veal the first of its pro­duc­tion model vans made for Chi­nese hol­i­day­mak­ers at the Alxa Desert Rally on Oc­to­ber 7 this year.

All the run­ning gear for the new car­a­van has been de­signed and built in Bal­lina,

NSW, with assem­bly and fitout oc­cur­ring in a Chi­nese fa­cil­ity par­tially fi­nanced by Kim­ber­ley Kampers, ce­ment­ing long-stand­ing ties.

The new car­a­van will be less than 6m long, ‘win­terised’, and com­pli­ant with strict new Chi­nese leg­is­la­tion gov­ern­ing the man­u­fac­ture of RVs set for China’s roads.

Although China is pre­dom­i­nantly a mo­torhome-driven mar­ket, Bruce

Loxton, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor for Kim­ber­ley Kampers, says the new Kim­ber­ley Kruis­ers al­low Chi­nese cam­pers to travel as an ex­tended fam­ily, with com­fort­able mo­bile ac­com­mo­da­tion suit­able for two or more sets of el­derly par­ents.

Al­ready, six units have been sold.

“Camp­ing in China is very com­mon. The Chi­nese like to camp in two-man tents but en­joy com­mon eat­ing fa­cil­i­ties. An ex­ter­nal kitchen is very im­por­tant; they re­ally like pitch in to­gether and cook up a storm in a sim­i­lar fash­ion to many of our cus­tomers over here [in Australia],” Mr Loxton said.
