hi all.
looking for any info on tru blu campers.
i will have my own trailer so mainly after info on the camper tents.
quality/finish ect.
i seen to many campers at the 4wd show but after looking at our budget ect it comes down to tru blu or outback on our own trailer set up.
diference in price is about $700 but look similar and being at the show they might have one specialy made for the show where quality ect is spot on but if you go buy one it might not be as good.
after any good points or bad points.
thank you .back by popular demand
:-)

Have you looked at Dingo? They are in Dandenong 9791 7683 - try and talk to the wife though - our camper is one of theirs - has been through some absolutely extreme weather - never had a drop of water inside - good quality canvas - good finish - very easy to erect - not too many poles!

Diamond.

Know nothing of the Tru Blue, but O'Briens make a Trailer top tent. Not sure on price though, quality is excellent.

O'Briens don't make their tents .. they are made by a canvas place in Traralgon.

We had a real good look at the campers at the 4wd show. We are building our own trailer and putting on a tent. We currently have a Cameron Canvas they will supply a tent to suit our trailer for $4000.00, very good quality.
The other tent that looks to be pretty good is the Souther Cross (local ) and have been in the game for a long time
Good luck

Diamond,

I was not that impressed with Tru Blu. Outback canvas do nice work. Have a chat with David at Southern Cross Canvass in Bayswater. Very helpful.

cheers

Diamond, I went through the same issues but found that a lot of the camper trailer manufacturers do not make up their own canvas tops. Some make the trailers only so when you ask for just the canvas top they want around $4,000.
I got mine made for well under $3,000 with an awning, zip in floor, draft strips, extra windows with screens etc. I think from memeory the basic price was around $2,000. Mine was made by GK Trimmers in Perth and I am very happy with quality. They do the canvas work for some of the other 'brand name' campers.
Worth shopping around.Cheers
Allan

Check out Tambo Campers in Wantirna. They do their own canvas, and have a very high level of workmanship. They might do it.
