4WD UTE ACCESSORIES
Our annual showcase of accessories for your 4WD ute includes everything from ruggedized camping trailers to pull-out awnings, bull bars, canopies, hard lids, tow bars and recovery strops, straps and complete kits.
Bivouac Campers are New Zealand’s largest importer of Off-road Campers with their signature Kakapo Forward-fold camper model. From its high ground clearance to the independent suspension (with coils and two shocks either side), the Kakapo camper has the ability to go seriously off-road wherever your 4WD will take it. The clever design allows a stop for lunch without opening the camper top as fridge drawer, food drawer and your stainless steel cooker and sink all pull out from the side of your trailer! When the time comes to stop overnight you can put up the roof tent (a five minute job) and your queen size bed is available (madeup) together with the sixseater lounge area (which goes down to another bed for two kids) Or, if you are planning to stay a bit longer at one site – simply add on the large awning with all sides, windows, doors, floor and small en suite attached for your comfort. A number of add-ons such as a 40-litre fridge, hot shower, solar panel, spare mag wheel and off-road tow hitch are also available to suit everyone’s needs. The standard Kakapo Camper model comes ready to go with mag wheels and Cooper Tires, queen size bed, six-seater lounge, three burner gas hobs, nine kg gas bottle, stainless steel pull-out kitchen with pressurised water (125 litre capacity), plus pull-out compartments for food, fridge etc. Electric Brakes (12 inch) plus a handbrake are standard, as are two 100 amp hour batteries with Anderson plug for external charging, full electrical panel and circuit breakers, and all awning canvas with floor and en suite, all at a sharp price of $19,800 (on-road registered for 12 months and includes GST). Weighing in (empty) at 1400kg the Kakapo Camper is built tough (it was a fully galvanised chassis) for heavy-duty off-road work and has been proven in the Aussie Outback taking on rivers and the huge corrugations they get on their Outback roads.
