Hi all,
We have been hiring camper trailers for a couple of years now and are ready to buy our own. We mostly go off road - fraser island etc.

Just wondering if anyone has any advice on off road campers with the additional kids rooms?
Have looked at Armadillo and lifestyle so far?

Hi Gypsy,
How much money do you want to spend? Are you looking at soft floor campers and hard floor campers?

We have an Aussie Swag with the rear kids room. A big benefit is that it can stay attached to the main tent and fold up with it. It is quick to assemble with about 5 poles and 4 pegs. A problem with it is that when set up it makes the whole thing very long, and difficult to fit into some camping spots and caravan park spaces. Aussie Swag also do a side kids room, but it can't stay attached when folding the camper.

Ultimate campers have a room that can be added underneath the main bed (outside) when it is set up, but depending on the age of your kids, you may not want to be inside sleeping while they are in the room underneath.

If your kids are old enough, you could consider setting up a little tent for them. A lot cheaper than buying a kids room.

You really need to do the homework yourself as buying a camper trailer is like most things in life.... a personal choice.

There are so many options and types and it's like buying a pair of shoes, what I might like you may hate, what might fit me might not fit you.

We have an Ultimate camper and find it fantastic but you may not want to spend $50,000 plus .... so what we have may not suit your budget.

Work out what ones you like and then ask advise on those one's only or you will have everyone posting on what's the best.

What you have asked will get you no where and just add confusion to you.

Sorry if I haven't given you the information you wanted but in life there are some things you have to do yourself.... an buying a camper is one!

Have a look at the O'Briens off road campers. We spent three years travelling OZ in one and it was brillant. They are offroad, very quick to set up, heaps of room and well built. We had the kids room added and was amazing having the extra room for the girls. The kids room is an extra but well worth it.
Have a look here

Have a look here to see where we took it on our trip
They are great to deal with and can change the trailer to suit your needs. We really liked how quick they were to set up.

Hi gypsy99
We have Kimberley Kamper with family room which can stay attached when folding. fit four kids on single beds. easy setup. Have a look at their website. They also have a smaller kids room which we have as well but prefer the larger family room.

Hi Gypsy
We almost bought a Trak Shak for the kids room under the 2 double beds and the amount of room they have in them, but my wife liked the kitchen in the Kimberley Kamper. Your kids will want there own space as they get older so, we opted not to get the kids room for our Kimberley Kamper Instead we bought the RV3 Oztent and set it up right next to our door the kids love the tent and now they are older they set up there own camp site, when there's room.

Hi gypsy99

Best thing to ask is what campers you liked best form the ones you have been hiring. As you will have used and know the issues with that one, it will make the trips allot better and easier to plan.
