Since 1999 we’ve been offering Kimberley Kamper trailers for hire here in Adelaide from our Collinswood address 45 North East Road. We selected Kimberley as our camper of choice because of their incredible construction, a design that’s been copied by many other makers since, but seldom matched.
The strength in the Kimberley design is their robust chassis. Underneath the camper body is a massive galvanised chassis and drawbar that supports the equally big A-arms for the suspension. Coupled up to coil springs and in our case, Old Man Emu shock absorbers, a Kimberley fairly floats over rough terrain.
The camper body is generous, housing a queen-sized bed, so there’s plenty of space inside and being a hard-floor camper when you flip the roof and roof-rack over you’ll create not only the tent space, but a floor that’s off the ground and matches the footprint of the bed. On my holidays in a Kimberley I’ve used that space for my kids sleeping accommodation or for a dining table and chairs if the elements are rough outside.
Many of our hire customers report that the lower level will house two or three little tackers on an inflatable mattress or a couple of extras in swags no problem, so a family of four or five can be accommodated without too much drama. On some of our hire camper trailers we can supply a kid’s bedroom, a canvas room that zippers onto the camper trailer for extra weather-proof space.
The tent area is festooned with windows and flyscreens that can be opened up to gather a welcome breeze for hotter times and interior lights in the form of his and her map lights above the bed and elsewhere make reading that special holiday book or finding something in the dark easy.
If you’re going to hire a camper trailer for a week or a month, you want to know that it has decent cooking facilities. Kimberley make great kitchens. Located under the bed and accessed via a stainless steel drawer that slides out from the trailer body you’ll find the preparation area. The stainless top and sink houses storage compartments for pots and pans and plates and cups, with another drawer for cutlery and another for cooking utensils.
A 12V pump will bring water up to the sink via a tap outlet like you’d see at home (by the way there’s 135L of water in the underfloor tank).
Adjacent to the prep area is the cooking compartment located under the gullwing. With a two burner cooktop and a grill underneath you’ll be able to cook up a storm of good eating there. With supplementary storage nearby you can add your own tools of the trade to our supplied kit of equipment for those specialty dishes you might want to make with local produce you find on the trail.
We can also supply fridges in 39L and 73L configurations for an additional fee so you can keep your frosties nice and chilled or the all-important elements of those dishes ready for use and in perfect condition.
Camping in a tent can never meet this standard of cuisine or ease of preparation!
There’s plenty of storage with an under-bed slide-out drawer and a cavernous amount of space up under the gullwings. We’ll supply a 240V power lead, drainage hose, an easy to erect canvas awning that stretches the full length of the camper and offers protection on the cooking side along with poles and pegs.
If you’re really going to be roughing it we can supply solar panels and/or a generator when there’s no mains power around, again for an additional fee.
Our hire camper trailers are regularly serviced and well-maintained, with brakes and bearings checked in advance of each hire. The braking system is a hydraulic over-ride style which works perfectly well in all conditions and it means you won’t have to mess around with an electric brake controller.
Tyres are genuine light-truck 4WD types to provide you with the best puncture protection possible and providing you take heed of the advice on reducing pressures for less than perfect surfaces, you should have a trouble-free journey.
If you’ve been thinking about buying a Kimberley camper trailer think about this. A new KK will cost you between $35-60,000. If you are only ever likely to do one trip a year for a week, a fortnight, a month or even a couple more it makes zero financial sense to buy one. Having it sitting in the driveway collecting dust for eleven months of the year you’ll cop a massive depreciation. Hiring an Adventure 4WD Kimberley camper trailer is the smartest way to have a great holiday but without hurting your back pocket.
Our Kimberley camper trailer hire fees are simple to understand. We have one flat fee that works all year round, no premiums placed on school holidays and our minimum period is for a week.
Hire an Adventure 4WD camper trailer by Kimberley Kampers for $750 for the first week and after that it’s $85/day. We’ll reward longer-term hirers with a discounted rate P.O.A.
