The Trayon camper are a compact unit, that aren't any higher than the back of the cab. Quick to set up, with fair bit of room. Have friends who have one of the early ones, and they are rapt in it.

Not sure about wind-down legs, you could always retro fit some.

Can't remember most of it.

G'day froomey,

As mentioned Adventure Campers make a great traytop camper. King size bed at normal bed height (ie no ladder), Huge kitchen that you can open and use on the roadside or anywhere, Lift up side doors on gas lift struts to give you protection from the sun when using the kitchen or storage areas, Massive storage - over 2 Cubic Metres, Solid wind up legs with 2 pickup points, Water, Power + heaps of other stuff. You can check them out here:

Adventure Campers

I don't have the Traytop, I've got the camper trailer which is very similar, but I do their photography & website etc, so I've spent plenty of time mucking around with the Traytop as well. I just finished a DVD for them last month. You can call or email them for a copy. Cost about $10 I think. Goes for about 90mins.

Finally there is the Perth caravan & camping show on at the moment at Ascot Racecourse in Perth. I believe it's a couple of hours drive for you, but I reckon it would be very worthwhile to check out the different campers in person. Runs till Monday I think.

Thanks, Aaron

took your advice, went up today
must be the best set up i've seen, did'nt see him set it up or pack it up,
know one was there near it , so i took a catalogue, wife likes the idea of not climbing a ladder.
will go and see him soon.
you would'nt know of a rough price.

thanks again

Didn't you grab a brochure & pricelist and DVD? What's going on :) On the DVD you can see them being setup etc, which is good to know about before buying any camper.

Price on the Traytops is about $24 I believe, plus there are extra's you can get if you need them.

Hope you had fun at the show.

Was out last weekend and a chap i know just acquired a Trayon for his patrol cab chasis. It had wind up legs, so we went off for the day without it. I thought it was fantasic. A lot like an 'Ultimate' in layout. The entry was under a fold out bed so formed a porch. Consructed with aluminium, so lighter than many. I'd like to get one eventually.

G'day froomy
we have a Trayon Camper since June 2005 fitted to a Ford F250 and absolutley love it. Its compact and easy to set- and pack up (I'm 62). It comes with four wind up legs and you can drive away from underneath. Unfortunately they are made in Qld, a bit far for you I suppose, but they might have a dealer in WA. Check out their website:
