Finding the Perfect Match for Your Adventures

The allure of the great outdoors, the call of the wild Australian landscape, and the passion for camping are driving many towards investing in camper trailers. However, with the sheer volume of options available, choosing the right trailer can seem overwhelming. In this guide, we’re here to help streamline your decision-making process.

How Much Is a Good Trailer?

Cost is often the first factor many consider. A quality camper trailer can range anywhere from a few thousand to over fifty thousand dollars. Factors that influence this price range include the trailer’s size, build quality, features, brand reputation, and customisation options. At Platinum Campers, we’ve positioned ourselves to offer the best of both worlds – top-tier trailers that are both quality-built and affordable.

How Do I Choose a Camper Trailer?

  1. Understanding Your Needs:

    When considering a camper trailer, it’s paramount to evaluate who will be using the trailer and under what conditions. Answer a few pivotal questions for yourself:

    • How many people do I usually travel with, and will I occasionally need extra space for additional guests or family?
    • What’s the towing capacity of my vehicle, ensuring I don’t select a trailer that’s too heavy?
    • Which features and options are non-negotiable for my camping experience, and which ones can I compromise on?

    For instance, if your travels are typically more intimate, such as romantic getaways or solo adventures, the Chase S5 – Rear fold Hard Floor Camper is a perfect fit. Conversely, larger groups or families might find the Cadet SE – Soft Floor Camper more suitable with its increased space.

  2. Considering Weight & Towing Capacity: A common oversight is neglecting to consider the towing vehicle’s capability. For an in-depth look at this, check out our guide on trailer weight and towing jargon.

  3. Checking Inclusions: When searching for camper trailers, it’s essential to look at what’s included as standard. It’s always a bonus when trailers offer comprehensive standard inclusions or provide the ability to upgrade. It’s worth noting, however, that some competitors may overload their campers with accessories that not every camper might need or want. For instance, having an Inverter, Lithium Batteries, and Air-Cons can drive the starting price up significantly. But what if you don’t desire all those extras? At Platinum Campers, we pride ourselves on our flexibility. You have the liberty to customise, allowing you to add what you need and leave out what you don’t. This ensures you’re not paying for features that don’t align with your camping vision.

  4. Consult Expert Sources and Personalise Your Decision:

    Navigating the vast world of camper trailers can be daunting. To ease this process, our Camper Trailer Buyers Guide is available to provide clarity and valuable insights. But sometimes, a personal touch can make all the difference. If you’re still unsure or have specific queries, don’t hesitate to call or email us. Our experienced team is more than happy to guide you, ensuring you find the perfect camper based on your needs and towing restrictions. We’re here not just to sell, but to ensure your adventures are precisely as you envision.

How Long Does a Camper Trailer Last?

A quality-built camper trailer can serve you well for 10 to 20 years with proper care. Factors like construction quality play a pivotal role. Learn more about where Platinum Campers are made.

How Much Should I Spend on a Camper Trailer?

This varies. Consider your camping frequency, essential features, number of campers, and potential resale value.

Is It Hard Living in a Camper Trailer?

Adopting a nomadic lifestyle in a camper trailer can be both challenging and rewarding. The initial phase might require adjustments due to limited space. However, the freedom of choosing your view and closeness to nature can be fulfilling.

Is 1500kg or 2500kg Better for a Camper Trailer?

Both weights have their advantages. A 1500kg trailer is easier to tow and more fuel-efficient. A 2500kg trailer offers more amenities and space but requires a powerful towing vehicle. Always refer to our trailer weight guide.

What is the Difference Between a Camper Trailer and a Travel Trailer?

While the terms are often used interchangeably, there are distinctions. A camper trailer is a term more commonly used in Australia and typically denotes a more rugged, off-road vehicle ideal for the Australian outback. They are designed for camping and often come with basic amenities.

On the other hand, a travel trailer, more common in North American terminology, is often larger, equipped with many of the amenities of home and is designed for long-term living or traveling. They might not always be suited for rough terrains like camper trailers.

Choosing between the two comes down to your intended use, travel locations, and personal preferences.

Final Thoughts...

Choosing the perfect camper trailer is about more than just the specs and features; it’s about elevating your entire camping adventure. As the vast and diverse landscapes of Australia beckon, ensure you’re equipped with the ultimate travel companion. After all, the joy of camping isn’t just in reaching your destination, but in the journey you take to get there. Happy camping!
