We have 3 kids, 7,8 and 10. We originally purchased a black wolf tent, lived in it for 3 months travelling the Cape. My wife
and I decided on keeping the tent, (it is brilliant and takes 5 minutes to erect) and in 2010 we purchased a kimberley
kamper. We picked up a second hand one up for $22000. All three kids can sleep on the floor for one night stop overs. This takes no longer than 3 minutes to set up. The kids take 5 minutes to put the tent up, which they normally now do all the time anyway.
Seriously consider pushing the budget to get something with independent coil suspension
. Yes, there are strong leaf sprung trailers, but they are worlds apart on rough roads. Look underneath 4WD vehicles. Unless they are a hundred years old, they don't have beam axle leaf sprung suspension
I was following a popular brand leaf sprung camper on a corrugated road in July in the NT. The thing was bouncing like a ball.
If I was forced to buy something with leaf springs, (and that would only because of price), I would look at an Adventure / Challenge from Adelaide
. Trak Shaks are well made as well.
At the end of the day, you will get what you pay for.
