AUSTRACK CANNING: $19,990
Austrack is a Queensland-based importer of Chinese-built campers, but it goes to a lot of trouble to upspec them and give them that little extra to set them apart from the crowd.
The Canning is a rear-fold model with a fully welded construction and a baked enamel finish with stainless steel trim that’s similar to your car, so it’s sturdy and looks good as well. It’s not light, with a Tare of 1500kg but with its 2000kg ATM, it will carry all your gear with comfort.
The suspension is dual shock absorber independent and the jockey wheel is the dualwheel Ark XO.
It carries 165L of water in two stainless steel tanks, with a cold water shower, an instant gas hot-water system and a stainless steel kitchen. It comes with three 100Ah AGM batteries, battery management system and digital volt and amp meters. The bed is a camper-queen-sized innerspring mattress. The tent is a heavy 16oz Australian-spec canvas (made overseas). It also has an ensuite, porta-potti and solar panels. At $19,990 it’s quite the package.
