TOP Take your touring holiday to the next level in the 2013 Aussie Swag Ultra D!
practical and extremely good looking. The finishes and materials are superb, and the layout and design have evolved over the company’s now 30-odd years of production.
It also has an amazing list of features to help you survive comfortably on any rugged Aussie outback adventure, with the power, fittings and facilities to keep you warm, cool, dry, fed and refreshed.
We just love hardfloor campers, not only for their ease of assembly, but for their ability to keep you high and dry, and away from creepy crawlies. It’s nice to step out of the elements and onto an easily cleaned, solid floor.
The trailer is immensely strong, with a 125x75x6mm angle iron drawbar that provides easy bolt-on ability without weakening the structure. You simply won’t bend the Ultra D.
The componentry and body are aluminium, stainless steel and hot-dipped black steel that is manufactured then galvanised to maximise longevity. The narrower construction keeps the camper well within vehicle dimensions for bush travel.
Aussie Swag manufactured the independent trailing-arm suspension on this 2013 model, which features bolt-in/bolt-out stub axles, Pedders coil springs and off-the-shelf shockers for easy replacement should the worst happen in the middle of nowhere. There are premium Mickey Thompson tyres and electric brakes, and Aussie Swag even imported its own Nz-made swing-up jockey with a greaseable bearing because it wasn’t happy with the most commonly available items.
SLIDE AND GLIDE
Aussie Swag developed the slide-out, swing-around kitchen way back in 1996. The company said it doesn’t slide, but glides without clang or rattle. And really, the Ultra D’s kitchen is nothing short of impressive. It has an ingenious design that pulls out and swings around to click into place alongside the trailer’s body, optimising space and access. With a stainless steel sink, extra bench space and a trailer-wide, insulated and Led-lit pantry drawer, this kitchen gets it right, down to the last detail.
