WILD BOAR LIGHTWEIGHT FORWARD-FOLD SLIDE: $19,900
Wild Boar is a Brisbane-based company whose profile has risen rapidly thanks to the superb finish and detailing on its campers.
Wild Boar has just released a brand new camper, the Lightweight Forward Fold Slide. Where most forward-folds, especially those with rear slides to extend the body for the rear bed, are quite heavy – around 1500kg – this is 1160kg Tare, and with its 12in brakes has an ATM of 2000kg, so the carrying capacity is huge.
Overall the camper is one metre shorter than its bigger brother, the Razorback, but has most of the basic fitout seen in the larger forward-fold designs. It has independent suspension, alloys, a boat rack, a full camper-queen-sized bed at the front and a slide to extend a double bed at the rear. The kitchen is stainless steel, though a bit smaller than the standard offering, a 100L stainless steel water tank, two 100Ah batteries, a 21A Projecta charger, stereo/CD player and all the rest. Priced at $19,900 it has a lot to recommend it with Wild Boar’s excellent.
