View Full Version : Kamparoo (Cub) Off road Tent Trailer...Good??
01-09-2007, 02:54 AM
I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the Kamparoo (or Australia the Cub) line of fold out trailers. I know what they look like and how they function. I was more curious as to the reliability. Any help would be appreciated.

We had a couple of Kamparoos at our shop for awhile, a Cub and a Sprint. We were storing the Cub for Glen Colborne of Kamparoo (he's in Canada and a good guy) and we had purchased the Sprint with the intention of building one of our air suspension chassis for it. They make other models other higher end models that are pretty nice. If you are familiar with Kimberly, they open the same way and have gobs of space inside for living & sleeping. I felt that the downside was that it was necessary to open and deploy the canvas to get to stored items. Some of this could be resolved with a nose box on the tongue, an option they offer. They are a decent trailer for the price, competitive in cost and quality with US made pop up tent campers. If you plan to use it as an "off road trailer", I think you will not find the suspension nor construction up to the task. Under heavy use, I think you would be making repairs to it within the first couple of years of ownership. It's not a bad trailer mind you, I am just saying that it is not as robust as a true off road trailer needs to be for the long haul. Call Glen, ask him where there are some local owners, he'll be happy to put you in touch with them. His number is 730-361-2000.

I actually sent Glen an e-mail asking about used Kamparoos recently (their office is a few hours north of me). He has a used demo that was on the Jeep tour:
Battery box and battery wired in
folding rear stabilizer legs
Not the best pic, that is what he sent me...

The ones that he sets up for the shows and sells later as demos are a screaming deal.
