Hello to All
« on: March 01, 2013, 02:31:21 PM »
Hi folks, joined here a while ago hoping to find information about buying a camper trailer. Was not disappointed. Wow what a wealth of information, took me quite a while to read up on trailers.
Started out reading on how to build your own camper, but in the end decided to buy a used one and then tinker a bit to add what we wanted.
Finally found a used Kimberly LE.

We have been camping and caravaning for years, and want to now explore more off road destinations.
Cheers BradR

Thanks for the welcome. Now all I need is the time and the weather to get away. It raining at the moment.

G'day Brad,

To Myswag,
Nice setup, there are heaps of places where you can drag your camper, heaps of reading too  ;D
Hope you enjoy your time here.
Happy & Safe travels.
You don't use magic to disappear, all you need is a 4wd & a Swag ;)

This is our first "camper trailer" but not our first camping "with trailer". This is how we started in about1989. The canopy on the trailer I made from a mates wrecked series II Landrover (and to answer all those about to ask? No. It didn't drip oil every time you parked it.) For a while I use to tow it with a Series III Landrover ex army, was quite a sight.
