hi guys
just wondering if any one has a camper trailer from

camper trailer

camper 7 is the one im looking at..
i know there are probably better ones out there but im looking for one
that my 2004 mazda 2 can tow...

i thought about the oztents but i think id have more room to move around
in a camper trailer..

and hope there good enough to keep me warm and dry in the wet weather,
as some day would love to travell around aus with one..
as i cant aford a caravan or another car to tow one with , this would be my best option, of course i have the option to get a cabin if the weather is really crap while travelling but when its good i like the great out doors, or at least try it out
and see how i go..

thanks in advance

Dont know much about those trailers, but keep in mind you may need to have brakes on trailer. Over 750kgs need to be braked, or vehicle specs if that is lower than 750kg unbraked.

We've had a few camper trailers, that one does seem reasonably light to suit your vehicle. Also a good price for trying the idea out like you say, at least you wouldn't lose too much if you figured out it wasn't for you.

Although you have to realize you're just buying a trailer with a tent on even have to pay extra if you want a spare wheel! So the price is a little misleading as is the weight! Add gas bottle, water, spare wheel there is probably an extra 100kg straight up.
There is no water tank, kitchen, jerry holders nothing!

But it might be ideal if you are just after a trailer with a tent on it and plan to carry a couple of Jerries and standard camping equipment you would if you were just tent camping. And at least it's manufactured in Oz, not just an imported Chinese job.

The biggest advantage to having a camper trailer is that nice big awning to cook under etc. The last trailer we had was just a trailer and we had a single pole touring tent. The tent was easier to set up than any camper trailer we've had, it's awesome but the one thing I would have missed in the nasty weather is the big awning the campers have. Something to consider if you're likely to retreat to a cabin in a caravan park anyway.

Otherwise those Stockman Pod Trailers might be good, although quite a bit pricier depending on what options you're after.

I've always liked the look of the backtrax as well but I'm not sure they're even made these days
