LOOKING TO BUY A CAMPER TRAILER THAT WON’T BREAK THE BANK? CHECK OUT THESE GREAT MODELS RETAILING FOR LESS THAN $20,000.
The Australian camper trailer world has undergone a massive revolution in the past decade. Where once, many of us working to a budget were often satisfied with a steel box and a basic canvas tent over a foam mattress, we now expect more.
Back then, locally-made offerings at around $10,000 dominated the budget sphere but trends show more of us are tolerating prices of up to $20,000 and are accepting that our campers (or parts of them) are made overseas. That price increase comes with a lot of bells and whistles though, with the savviest outlets tweaking the fitout and finish of their imported offerings to find a competitive edge. So it really pays to examine the fine print.
A few locally-made camper trailers still find favour among buyers in this space, though, thanks to their proven experience out on the tracks, their commitment to lightweight design, endorsement for local manufacturing and their locally-made, well-ventilated luxury tents.
Let’s check ’em out.
