WHEN WE SAY BUILT IN BRISBANE – SWAG CAMPER TRAILERS, WE MEAN IT!

A quick message from our GM

Did you know that there are 2 distinct ways that imported Campers & Hybrid Vans come into Australia?

Type 1 –  The entire manufacturing and production of the unit is done overseas, including all electrical and gas plumbing. The units are then pulled out of a shipping container and handed over to a customer. Sure this saves thousands of $$ on overheads but you run several risks when purchasing a unit like this.

Type 2 – The shell is shipped over as a part assembled unit and then the QC, customisation and the fit-out is carried out by qualified Tradespeople in Australia.

SWAG Camper Trailers have always been upfront about where our campers come from. We are proud of our GLOBAL manufacturing partnerships. With that said, we have always focused our attention on preserving Australian Jobs and ensuring a quality product.

This is why we use AUSTRALIAN SUPPLIED Products & Companies such as ARK, NARVA, PROJECTA, CAMEC, PREMIER ENGINEERING, RED ARC, DOMETIC, TRUMA, LION BATTERIES, ASHDOWN INGRAM just to name a few…

  • Our electrical & Gasworks are carried out by licensed electricians & plumbers who have small family-owned businesses right here in Brisbane.
  • We employ Aussie Tradies to build your campers and we engage with Australian Media companies to test and promote our business.
  • We fit and test every component of our camper trailers. Every suspension system, every water tank, every brake away controller, every wheel, every gas line, every 240v system and every charger.

Camper Trailer QLD Tips & Tricks

Camper Trailer QLD Tips & Tricks

Whether you want to go camping with the family at Karingal Scout Campsite, Main Beach Camping Grounds, or someplace else, things will go a whole lot better if you do it in a camper trailer QLD. But before you can make an informed decision, there are certain things you need to know. Here’s a look at how to get the right trailer and what to do once you have one of your very own.

Make Sure the Camper Trailer Can be Safely Towed by Your Vehicle

The worst thing to do is to buy a camper trailer that is too big or too heavy for you to tow safely with your vehicle. Make sure you know how much your vehicle is capable of towing and then find a suitable trailer. When considering the camper trailer weight, don’t forget to factor into the equation the cargo, fuel, and water you will carry in your trailer. That’s the only way you can arrive at an accurate tally.

Practice Makes Perfect

Before you hit the open road in your camper trailer, you need to familiarize yourself with it. You don’t want to come across any difficulties on an actual trip that could have been sorted out had you spent some time getting familiar with your camper trailer. Here are some things to be mindful of:

  • Practice hooking up the camper trailer to your vehicle.
  • Spend time learning about the features of your camper trailer. You’ll want to familiarize yourself with the layout, the compartments, the appliances, the water system, and more.
  • Take some test drives so that you get accustomed to towing the camper trailer. Focus on driving, changing lanes, entering and exiting highways, parking, and backing up.

Make a List of What You’ll Take

It also makes sense to make a list of everything you and your family will need. While it’s better to overpack than to under pack, you still don’t want to go overboard. If you pack too many things, the weight of your camper trailer might exceed the amount your vehicle can tow safely. Your list should include the following headings:

  • Power source–propane, gas, or diesel
  • Bedding–sheets, comforters, sleeping bags, and pillows
  • Toiletries–toilet paper, washcloths, towels, soap, and hand sanitizer
  • Cleaning–dishwashing liquid and sponges
  • Cookware–pots and pans
  • Kitchenware–plates, cutlery, salad bowl, paper towels, and napkins
  • Clothing–clothes and footwear
  • Other Stuff–first aid kit, medications, and bug spray

 

By following these tips, you can successfully enter the fun world of camping in your very own camper trailer QLD. When you’re ready to look at some camper trailers, give us a call or visit us in person. We’ll be pleased to assist you!

2020 CAMPER TRAILER OF THE YEAR

2020 CAMPER TRAILER OF THE YEAR – MOST FAMILY FRIENDLY CAMPER…!!!

Swag Camper Trailers have won the 2020 Camper Trailer of the Year Award for ‘MOST FAMILY FRIENDLY CAMPER’. The X13 Explorer Hybrid Van was put to the test in November 2019 and the results are clear.

If you are looking for a great all-round family van then look no further then the X13 Explorer 4-6 berth Family Hybrid.

“Our team have achieved their goal. We set out to create a family-friendly van that was easy to tow, simple to set up and was suitable for so many Australian families. It ticks the box for off-road capability and affordability so I couldn’t be prouder of everyone’s effort”
Adam Mathieson (General Manager)

Some of the judge’s comments:

“The Swag Raptor X13 Explorer is a 13ft hybrid aimed squarely at families and hits that target by combining a swag (pardon the pun!) of sleeping space and storage inside with a whole bunch of hybrid camper features. It has the potential to tap into that market for people who want to get their kids off the grid and show them what the outback is really like. If you have two or more kids you would, at a bare minimum, want to be looking at this camper.” – David Cook

“This camper holds the potential to get the next generation of little travellers into this Great Brown Land and making memories that will last a lifetime”. – Kath Heiman

This Swag hybrid has a level of robust redundancy that will get family groups ‘there and back’ — via the Outback- Scott Heiman

As with a lot of hybrids, an X-Factor is a quick set up and the large storage volume this style of camper affords, but with the Swag it’s also the focus on the internal living room, that is essentially all potential sleeping spots, and is capable of handling up to six easily – Tim Van Duyl

Camper Trailers Finance Available

Camper Trailers Finance Available

Camper trailers finance can be an investment worth considering. Itching to head to a camper trailer destination these upcoming holidays? You’re not the only one! It has been proven that taking holidays as a family can create stronger bonds. However, not everybody has the available cash funds to buy a camper trailer outright. This is where SWAG can help you live the dream.

SWAG Camper Trailers has established relationships with market-leading finance providers making it even more convenient and affordable to own your own Camper Trailer or Caravan.

Why should you consider buying a camper trailer on finance?

We have listed below some primary reasons:

  • Take your home with you. There are no expensive hotel room fees at each destination. If you have a slightly larger than normal family, hotel rooms can add up quickly, to hundreds of dollars a night. With a camper trailer, you will only need to worry about a small site fee, and they offer a convenient and even luxurious home away from home.
  • Camping without compromising comfort. Camper trailers combine the simple joys of camping with a range of modern conveniences including comfortable beds, built-in kitchens and plenty of storage. You have gas for cooking, water storage for drinking and showering, and decent protection from the elements.
  • Cheaper than a caravan. With prices for basic camper trailers starting from less than $5k dollars, camper trailers are much more affordable than caravans. If you are looking for higher-end camper trailers that are equivalent to a caravan, the price will increase from there.
  • They’re easy to transport – Compared to a caravan, camper trailers are lightweight and small, making them much easier to tow with the standard family car.
  • Go exploring in more remote places. Camper trailers make it easy for you and your family to access out-of-the-way holiday destinations and escape the crowds of tourists.

These reputable companies offer comparative rates, low fees and easy repayment terms. We can offer finance through a number of lenders so you get the best loan to suit you. So why wait? Just fill out the online form and a finance specialist will contact you and get your application underway.
