One of the largest types of RVs on the market, camper trucks, made headlines recently with a WA family stranded in the outback with this type of vehicle. No doubt this story sparked interest from RV buyers in these rugged go ‘almost everywhere’ vehicles. As a specialist RV finance lender, Jade Caravan Finance provides details on finance for camper trucks with examples of some of these types of vehicles available on the RV market.
The news story covered a family touring Australia in their camper truck which became stranded in the Simpson Desert. Their vehicle became bogged after heavy rain in the area. Fortunately, they were rescued by helicopter and made their way home safely to WA, sadly minus their camper truck which they will no doubt retrieve when conditions are suitable. The images of this massive vehicle all equipped up to cater for a family of 4 for a year’s travelling in remote areas are quite impressive.
If you have the yearning to go further and into areas less travelled, looking more closely at this type of vehicle to cover rugged terrain may get you started.
Camper Truck RV Category
The camper truck classification or category encompasses a relatively broad range of types and sizes of RVs. They can include demountable slide-on campers that can be attached to a ute/cab chassis style truck and hence create a camper truck. For those looking to purchase one, it’s essential to consider options for the best RV finance to ensure affordability and suitable repayment terms.
But the much larger sized camper bodies which are fitted to a truck chassis and similar to the RV featured in the media story are the type of vehicles available through companies such as All Terrain Expedition Trucks and SLRV Expedition Vehicles.
All Terrain Expedition Trucks is an Australian business, located on the Gold Coast and offering innovative and luxury designs for that 5 star adventure. Their range of vehicles includes 4x4, 6x6 and the massive 8x8 expedition trucks.
Taking a closer look at the 8x8, this is a customisable camper body which is built to tackle tough environments. Buyers can select from a range of accessories which have been sourced from the best in the world.
SLRV Expedition Trucks is a family business that specialises in the manufacture of expedition trucks. The company’s range includes custom 4x4 and 8x8 camper models on Isuzu, Iveco, Hino, MAN and Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The 8x8 Commander Model is on a MAN vehicle base and can be configured as either a single or a double storey RV.
The rugged exteriors of these vehicles belies the luxury and comfort afforded to travellers on the inside. The designs and finishes are first-class and as expected include the features, equipment and fixtures to allow self-sustainable travel over extended periods.
Camper trucks definitely offer a unique travel experience to their owners. To get more of a taste for what is involved in travelling in such a vehicle and what may be in store for you, there is a publication dedicated to the category - Truck Camper Australia, which could be worth exploring.
