After years of searching came across a camper that ticks all the boxes . What a fantastic design . The Lightweight Camper made in Ballina originally has to be the simplest camper I have ever owned, sure it is not a family orientated but is perfect for 2 . everything just goes together without the need to put together part A to part B .
A big thank you to Brian and Barb in Casino

"Lightweight Campers, Ballina"

Punctuation and capitalisation, the subtle difference between helping your Uncle Jack, off his horse, and helping your uncle jack off his horse.........

They look like a good trailer. Cheers for the heads up.

It isn't Friday yet, that qualifies I cracked up .
I wasn't aware of the Sydney bit but every time one came up for sale which is not often it was down that way . Apparently the builder had his wife doing the canvas work whilst he did the fabrication . Unfortunately her eyesight failed so he gave it away, with the quality of the canvas work it would have been hard to replace her .

Good one gbc. If I was still teaching I'd have been in agonies trying to decide if I could or couldn't use that as the basis of a classroom lesson.

The old ones are always the best. I didn't invent it, but I have used it a few times. Happy Friday all.

We owned a Lightweight Camper years ago. They were made in Sydney at the time. We originally towed it behind our VW Microbus. Then it was hitched to our first Pajero and we took the camper up into the deserts, the Victorian high country and everywhere in between. The camper was a beaut thing, so simple to setup and tow and perfect for a couple.

Greg, I know you will enjoy and get lots of use out of your new trailer. We had the off-road version of the Light Weight Camper. It was great and we could tow it anywhere. 100lts of water in the side carriers, deep cycle batteries (which we fitted) to run the lights and we took it on many a long trip.

They are well built and will last forever.

We only just sold our one and bought at 22ft Concept caravan. A bit of a step up but the wife is certainly happy although we both still fondly miss the "old camper".

Enjoy

Michael

Hi Greg T11

We have had our light weight camper for 15 years and love it although we now have a caravan we will not be selling the camper as we still like to go bush where the van won't go, our great mates who we often travel with also still have their camper, they
are old friends of Bruce and Marie who made the campers. Did you get the walls and awning as well? We wish you lots of happy travels with the camper, ours has been to
Cape York, Kimberley, Darwin, all through Northern Territory, across the Great Central Road from Ayres Rock to Geraldton, down to Fremantle across the Nullabor, all around Victoria, if you would like to see photos of our setup send us a message.
Cheers

Matt & Julie
