Basic camper trailers can now be had from just a few thousand dollars but you get what you pay for. Good quality Australian made campers start at about $15,000. At the top end, about $50,000 buys a premium off-road model with independent suspension, works burger kitchen and enough water storage and power capacity to keep you off the grid for as long as you like.
Hard floor campers, with a flip over lid on the top, are the quickest and easiest to set up and the floor is off the ground.
Soft floors, with the tent on top, give the most space under canvas, more storage and are ideal if you’re camping with kids.
Jayco’s camper trailers, with a pop-up roof and slide-out beds, are a brilliant design and great value for money.
