Looking for a camper trailer
« on: January 14, 2018, 10:23:30 AM »
Hi all,
I’ve joined “my sway” as the wife and I are after a soft floor camper.  We have got it down to a few brands, so hoping to get some more ideas and warnings from these forums.

Cheers

Welcome to Myswaj Wok, you definitely should look at one of the imported units from Asia.

Hi wok welcome

Generally speaking, the used market is where you will find bargains. 

Make sure the basics of the CT are good, worry about the bling later.  You need to be able to get there and back, and setup and pack up without causing a divorce.

I would suggest that you look for a good name brand, older campertrailer as your 1st purchase.  You will learn heaps about what really suits you without investing heaps.

As an example we bought an Outback rear fold soft floor as our 1st camper.  We learnt heaps and sold without dropping to much cash.  We then bought something we expect to last a long time.

If you want more specific opinions and advice then provide details of things like, where you want to camp, how often, towing vehicle, budget etc.  It will help us to help you.

Cheers

There's a Customline soft floor camper in the classified section at the moment.  We've got one, they're great.

We hired a couple of different ones while were trying to decide.
Gave us ideas as to what we liked and didn’t like.
Good luck.
