Camel camper trailer

Submitted: Tuesday, Oct 17, 2006 at 17:47


We are thinking about purchasing a Camel camper trailer, the one we had in mind is the discovery. Does anyone have any pointer on if this would be a good choice

Hi Daverelle,
Mate, I had a look at the web site and they don't look to bad. They just seam a bit deer. If you are in Brisbane or can look at their web site try Customline Campertrailers at Beenleigh.

We got one new in June and love it and it was a lot cheaper that the Camel. Had it out on a couple of trips with great success. No problems so far. So happy with it.

Price and Quality in one.

Hi Camwill

We went to custom line one saturday morning to check their product and they only had trailers out the front with none set up with the tent out. We had a look at some photos on the office wall, that was all we could see of their product set up.

Hi Daverelle,
Gee wiz that is a shame. It is a great product and well worth looking at. Did they not offer to set one up, it only takes 5 min??. What did you think about the price???

Come have a look at mine some time if you like. Its always at home as the Nissan is broken and won't tow it.

Hi mate, we bought camel beachcomber 18 months ago and love it. We looked at a few and decided to go the camel . I liked the way the trailer itself is made full chassis etc. we have used it alot and had no problems, another worth looking at is the trackabout, similar price and good construction also. Good luck in your purchase.

We bought a Camel Nomad with extra springs for some light off-road camping. Added extras were: Solar roof, deep cycle battery, full annex, automotive seals, toolbox. Found them to be a very robust trailer with attention to detail in the tent/canvas department. On our first camping night it hosed down for hours but there were no leaks. With a good length towbar it tracks well also. I have looked at other campers in this price range (all up just over $8000) and I'm very happy with the Camel. The Discovery should be even better.

We have not long purchased a Camel (bushman)-4 weeks ago, very happy so far. I would recomend optioning up to automotive seals, (ours are only foam tape and do let some dust in). Tackabout trailers seemed to be good value also.
