Our Adventure Camper has done Approx 70,000 Kms,30-40,000 off the tar top). Gibb 5 times, Great Central, South Australia, NT, Lake Ayre, most of WA's tracks except the Canning Stock Route.
Fiona & I traveled with 2 boys with this camper for 6 years and just the 2 of us for the last 5 years. Could not find another camper in this class to match it for storage (boat, motor, fishing gear, boys beds, boys bikes, extra fridge, wood, extra spare tyre, hot water system,etc etc).
Weighed in at 1.51 tonne. Kitchen & storage are always accessible. Don't have to unload roof rack to set up camper. Bed and space inside was more than large enough. Never let us down.
Have seen Adventure's new campers in Perth and I am still impressed. New mod's are excellent. Service from you guys has been great. Frank met us in Norsman (WA) to deliver it after a camping show in Perth.
Keep up the great work & many regards,
Peter & Fiona
Just thought I would drop a line as we have just comeback from three months
travel around Australia. We took our Cape York Camper which performed
perfectly the whole way (not even a flat tyre over 17,000km).
When we were in tropical Queensland everyone was getting washed out and we
were fine with no leaks in the camper. Also had no dust problems and that
is saying something as 3/4 of the trip was on gravel. Fuel economy was
great and everyone admired it no matter where we were.
The easy single person set-up and pack-up came to the forefront on the Eyre
Peninsula when I had bad back problems from a previous injury and eventually
became hospitalised - Brian could easily set it up and dismantle it by
We travelled from Busselton through the Great Central Highway to the Olga's,
up to Darwin. Did the Carpentaria Highway which was pretty rough, down to
Lawn Hill National Park, up to Cooktown and down the east coast to Brisbane.
From Brisbane we went across to Innamincka, down the Strzelecki to Cameron
Corner, on to Broken Hill, Streaky Bay, then home to Busselton.....fabulous.
We can't wait to go again and are hoping the next trip will take us to
Tasmania and eventually we will live in it for a year while we travel.
We have looked at many campers during this trip and two previous trips - one
for two months and one for 4 months - and nothing compares. We also met
quite a few people who had tried to do the roads we had travelled on and
their campers had sustained severe damage and subsequently they had sold
them and bought caravans.
Thank you for a great product which ensured our perfect holiday.
Cheers Wendy (and Brian)
Hi Paul, Frank and team,
At last we can claim to have taken the Pilbara on its first outing.
We hadn’t set the whole arrangement up previously, so it was good to have the instruction book in one hand and the annexe walls etc in the other. Although we had a really good idea thanks to your advice when we first looked and finally picked the camper up, the instructions were really clear and concise.
Best of all we found everything to be better than we thought it could be and given that we have been “camping” in one form or another now for many years, Marg and I reckon this is the best move we have made in that comfort, roominess and obviously terrific planning and quality construction has resulted in a great package.
We were delighted to have been told this morning that a great mate of ours has also just purchased a Pilbara Adventure.
John & Marg –S.A.
P.S. The shade sail over the fridge is a fantastic idea.
My wife and I with two kids in tow have recently returned from three weeks around central Australia with our new Pilbara camper trailer. The trailer towed and performed faultlessly over all road conditions with the overall layout of the kitchen, storage and tent area making our holiday a pleasure.
Now that we have used our camper we can see that Paul & Frank do use their products as they have thought of everything.
Congratulations on a fantastic off road camper that gives us the storage space and comfort we require.
We would recommend your camper trailers to anyone considering the purchase of a genuine off road camper trailer.
Mark, Jodie and kids.
[Note: Simon & Tara have traded up to a new Pilbara since this testimonial was written.]
After having hired an Adventure camper 3 years in a row we eventually purchased our own Cape York.
We can’t speak highly enough of our trailer. We hardly ever camp in caravan parks, mostly in the scrub by a creek somewhere. The trailer always goes wherever we want it to, it is easy to set up and the kitchen is great. Our gear is easy to get to and there’s plenty of room (Which we need with four kids) our kids know more about Australia, our rivers and history than the all of their class mates put together.
We always go to the outback that is what we love.
This year we plan on tackling the Tanami Track , Darwin and Kakadu etc should be fun I cant wait.

Hi Frank, Connie and all the team at Adventure,
In 2003 Margot and I made the trip from Caboolture to Bourketown and return via the Matilda Way to Cloncurry then turned right to the Burke and Wills Roadhouse. Then we took the Barra Way to Gregory Downs, Adels Grove, Lawn Hill NP, Riversleigh, Gregory River, Escott Lodge, Burketown and returned to Caboolture via Karumba Point, Mt Surprise, Obriens Creek, Charters Towers, Bellyando Crossing, Emerald, Biloela, Cania Gorge, Monto, Yarraman and home.
I know that you recommended Escott Lodge to us and we are very glad we took your advice as it is one of the best camp grounds we encountered. Lawn Hill Gorge is a MUST see destination and a few days spent there is well worth while. Fossicking at O’Briens Creek can be rewarding.
All in all an enjoyable trip thanks to our Adventure camper but all too short.
Cheers to all
Geoff and Margot
Just passing on how great the thermal roof performs on the camper. We got ours just before our Christmas holiday and used it at Wentworth where we stay, the difference was incredible we could actually walk into the tent area during the day as it gets very hot there. We have also just done the other end of the scale, we went up thru the centre of Australia and back down the Oodnadatta track. As you would probably know the nights are very cold in those desert areas, we struck a -4 at Erldunda with a massive frost in the morning, needless to say we were snug as bugs in the camper, had no condensation and not an ounce of frost on the canvas or the thermal roof it made a massive difference. This was the first night that we used it and it went on every night after that. The camper went fantastic and we are now super fast at putting up and packing up.
We could also do with some more of your brochures, everywhere we stopped we had people watching us set up or wanting to watch us pack up – they were fascinated. We usually have a stash of brochures but only one very worn out one left. If you could post us some that would be great. We did actually pass 4 Adventure Campers on our trip.
Hi paul & staff,
Just a few lines to let you know how pleased we have been with the first 12 months use of our Pilbara.
So far we have spent 45 nights & travelled about 6000 klms including short weekend trips locally & extended trips west & the gulf including Lawn Hill & Bowthorn Station (kingfisher camp) (well worth a visit) .
We have found the camper extremely comfortable, easy to use & tows very well in all conditions. After 2000klms of unsealed roads & tracks we have found the dust sealing to be second to none & we believe the amount of storage area must be the best of any camper on the market . We have built & fitted a tilting boat rack with basket (tinny will be ordered tomorrow) & changed the jerry holder & wing to a storage box similar to the one as shown in 4wd monthly (have enjoyed reading all the features in the various magazines inc the story on your cruiser) . The only minor problem was the 2nd water tank was very slow to drain but i found that the outlet neck only had a very small hole in it so I drilled it out, problem solved ! We also use a short hose with a garden click fitting on this tap to make it easier to use. I noticed on your web site there was to be a dealer up here in cairns, any further info!
Future trips include a couple more weekend trips locally before xmas, 4 or 5 nights at Tinnaroo dam on a friends property for xmas/new year and we are planning a cape york trip with about 3 or 4 other off road campers.
PS our camper is usually stored at our workshop in cairns and always attracts plenty of attention & favourable comments, do not hesitate to contact us if you get any inquiries / we are more than willing to show them over the camper. To you, your family & staff thank you for manufacturing what we believe to be the best camper on the market today cheers.

Frank and Connie,
I hope that you are both well and still enjoying your camping business, hopefully you still have some time for holidays. We are having a great time with our Cape York Adventure camper and have had some great trips. Last year we journeyed to the three corners and the Simpson Desert around Birdsville. At Christmas we travelled to the High country around Mount Beauty and Kosciusko. This July we will travel to Cape York and fulfil one of my life time dreams as I have never been there before. Thanks for making these trips even more enjoyable because of you’re wonderfully designed off road camper.
John & Sue - Victoria.
Dear Frank, Connie and Paul,
It’s about time I sat down and wrote you a letter about my last trip with my Daintree Adventure.
This Adventure took us to the heart of the Pilbara region of W.A. via Newman to Karijini National Park, then on to Millstream. I can highly recommend Karijini N.P. to anyone wishing to see some magnificent scenery. We set up the camper in one of the camp ground areas and visited different gorges each day. The Daintree camper made our stay in the park very enjoyable. Everything was at our finger tips and being dusty conditions not a drop of dust entered the camper.
- The roads were reasonably rough and the camper handled them very well.
- After leaving Karijini we went to the Tom Price Caravan Park. The park owner noticed the camper and yes had to come over for a look.
- He has observed many forms of off road campers set up in the park and he believes none stack up to the Adventure design. He and many others that have observed the camper are impressed with the kitchen size and layout.
- People generally go for a walk about dusk, beer time and I’ve had many stop and talk about the camper.
- After leaving Tom Price we headed for Millstream. The roads were a little rougher.
- The stone guard worked a treat.
- We then headed for the Gascoyne region via the Gascoyne junction and Murchison area.
- We covered about 4,500 km’s of which half was off road. We had no trouble at all with the camper it handled the rough stuff with ease.
- Next trip is 3 months to Cooktown.

We purchased our Cape York Adventure camper trailer in June 2000 after selling our 28 foot caravan because we wanted greater flexibility in our travels around OZ.
The general storage area is superior to other trailers and is easier to get at.
The campers are built with extremely high quality materials and workmanship.
