Just wondering what your thoughts are on the travelander camper trailers. What do owners like and dislike,
Is it as easy to pack up as it is to unpack the unit, I love the idea of a push button opening.
How does the storage capacity / tow capacity compare to the ultimate camper?

A friend of mine bought a new one recently & had to spend a lot to get the suspension right.
He went to NSW to pick it up & it was a nightmare to tow home.

All I know is, it was mostly to do with suspension geometry & shock absorbers.
I can find out more, but not for a few days.

I would be interested to know more about the suspension problem, what type of car did they tow it with?
Was the company helpful and supportive in getting the problem fixed?
Apart from that are they happy with the unit
Cheers

Hi Horseshoe (Name?)

I have a travelander for about 2 years now. It is used on the tray of my landcruiser rather than towing. They have a pretty good trailer you can get to mount the same unit on. I did get some airbag suspension which makes it so easy to work with.

We love it. It is just the next step up in comfort of camping. And yes it only takes about 2mins to setup when you are stopping for an overnighter.

The kitchen is great and it only takes seconds - (yes seconds) to set up for morning tea or lunch. (may take kettle a bit longer to boil)

I have taken it offroad to some really rough places, very sandy beaches and no problems. I have camped in high winds, extreme heat, and freezing winter and have been very happy with the travelander performance.

Cheers
David

Not sure how to compare to the Ultimate - they are a good unit but I have never had one.

Thanks for the information, I am hoping they are on display at the upcoming Brisbane caravan camping show.
The unit looks good and you sound very happy with yours. I like the idea of a tray back , though we will probably go trailer version.

Cheers,
