BLUE WATER MITCHELL V1: $18,990
Blue Water imports its core campers from China and adds value by finishing them locally.
The Mitchell V1 shown is a walk-up side-fold softfloor with a lot to recommend. The canvas is all-Australian Dynaproofed with a vinyl floor, kids’ room, annexe and ensuite for shower and toilet. Blue Water will even throw in the porta-potti. The 3000x2700mm main tent and the 2400x5600mm annexe provide ample internal living space.
The Tare is hefty at 1540kg but the 1990kg ATM is upgradable to 2400kg if you have the towing grunt. There is 200L of water in two stainless steel tanks.
The suspension is twin shock trailer arm independent under a hot-dip galvanised chassis and powder-coated panels. Two 97Ah deep cycle batteries with a volt/amp gauge keep it powered and a stereo system keeps you entertained. The stainless steel kitchen has a three-burner stove. At $18,990 this is good value family camper. More info: www.bluewatercampers.com.au
