TAIPAN CENTAUR: $18,999
Taipan Industries is a Queensland-based company selling a range of Chinese-built campers, including its Centaur forwardfold design.
The Centaur is built on a hot-dipped galvanised chassis with a 3200mm onepiece, ultra-long extended drawbar and a baked enamel body. The suspension is dual shock independent and the rims are 16in alloys on 50mm parallel bearings.
It features large slide-out storage boxes, a slide-out fridge tray and huge under-bed storage and fully dust-sealed lockable gas strut assisted side compartments.
There is a 90L stainless steel water tank and a 100Ah deep cycle battery with marine grade switch panel, volt meter and Anderson plug. The kitchen is stainless steel and free standing with tap, sink, cutlery drawer and Smev three-burner cooktop.
With a Tare of 1250kg it is lighter than many, though the ball weight of 175kg may stop some. The RRP is $18,999.
