The family is planning trip to Kimberley, Pilbara and WA coast. We have looked at campers at WA Caravan show and thought Camprite Camper was pretty good. From our perspective, it is very quick to set up. When set up it without annex it has seating inside and easy access (no ladders).

There doesnt seem to be many around and it is hard to get some feedback other than thru the dealer.

Can anyone provide comment on the good / bad features based on experience.

cheers

Phil I have a Camprite Camper ,we bought it new 4 years ago and have been around the Kimberley / Pilbara , Emouth , And the south coast, It has been really good. They are very well made although we have made a few changes to ours . We (the wife) liked not having to climb a ladder to get in bed and I like been able to put the camper up in minutes with the kettle on.

Just got back from a weekend camping trip today in the pilbara. Friends had a camprite camper and a cavalier camper. Was very impressed with the ease of setting up the camprite and it looked like a very good set up compared to the cavalier but also talking about $10k difference in price. Also very capable when being towed with the independent suspension (water crossings and corrugations).

Clearly there is a message about getting spare stub axle - I assume this relates to all campers and I have seen that as a feature on one at the 4WD show last year. thxs Phil

Overall, the responses are positive. The independent suspension / design / construction are good but add to the price. The feature we have liked the most is the beds are set up for whole family as part of setting up camper. At about 10K dearer than the entry level, it is still at the low end of price range for campers with independent suspension, wired power / battery, hard top. Our next step is to go and look in more detail and take the plunge. Other comments still welcome, thxs Phil

Hi Phil
We have just purchased a 2nd hand Camprite and the main feature we liked was all the beds up off the ground and room for sitting/eating in the trailer.
It is very quick to set up I've only done it 3 times now and can do it in under 10 min.

The trailer is 4 1/2 years old and didn't have a couple of the features of the new trailer (leaf spring not coil, battery system), but has just come back from a 5 month trek (2 adults 2 kids), and is in good nick so that bears testament to it's durability.

It has come with all the annexe walls and when up creates a lot more room.

Most of the mods that I will do have already been done on newer versions...ie positioning of gas bottles, bigger box on the front, couple of extra lugs to tie down the canvas.

Glen - I think I know the camper that you bought, assuming it was purchased about 2 weeks ago in Perth. I saw the add and enquired. It had been sold before we could check it out. Thx for feedback, Phil
