Investing in an off road camping trailer means you can still have all the fun of camping, but the comforts of home as well. It’s fun heading out into the Australian Outback with nothing but the essentials, but you still want to eat the foods you want and enjoy sleeping on a comfortable mattress off the ground. Plus you’ll have an extra room or two, covered, should you come up against less than agreeable weather.
Don’t expect to take any old camping trailer off road and not have to maintain it. You’ll find campers built especially for off road driving. You’ll need something sturdy with good shocks to withstand bumps and sharp turns. The lighter the better, in case you get into some really hairy country, but as long as you have a good 4WD vehicle to tow the trailer you’re good as gold.
There are off road camper trailers for every budget, but these are a few Australian manufacturers that make superior campers:
The offroad camper trailers made by Diamond are one of the toughest campers available due to the state of the art construction, laser precision engineering, select high-grade materials with 3mm Aluminium body construction. The Grand Trakka Camper brings luxury, comfort and HIGH standards into the 4WD camper trailer setup. Find out more about Diamond Campers here.
Kulkyne Kampers love their range of offroad camping trailers including the Oztrail camper trailers (Warrior 9, and Warrior 12) and the Tru Blu Series (the Eagle and the Crow).

Cub Campers are compact, lightweight, clever designs of camper trailers which fold old easily with the famous ezy-wind system. The hard roof rack becomes the hard floor and the canvas unrolls to become the tent in just a few minutes. The Daintree, Daintree LE, Drover and Brumby Series are exclusively offroad camper trailers. The Cub campers have some models which are specifically designed as off road campers and other models which can be fitted with a Transcontinental package to increase the outback touring capability.

Adventure Offroad Campers features luxurious campers with all the needed amenities and then some more.The Grand Tourer is simple to put together, just an assembling of the right poles. There is a stowed fridge and pullout cook station, plus cabinet storage for dishes and other small wares. One of the best things about this camper is that it also features solar panels so you can power up on the road. This allows you to have power in the backcountry for stereos, phone chargers, toasters or whatever you’d like.
