Drifta Camping & 4WD's Offroad Tourer camper trailer's simple set up is ideal for a travelling couple or small family.

In an age where most camper trailer manufacturers are trying to impress with enormous canvas proportions and loads of extra inclusions, Drifta has gone the other way. The new Drifta Offroad Tourer (DOT) doesn’t have a half-acre of canvas, big tare weight or stainless-steel cooker/kitchen, but it’s this very simplicity that sets the camper apart from the pack.

The new Drifta offroad Tourer from Drifta Camping & 4WD is priced at $20,990 and is marketed as just the ticket for a travelling couple, or even a small family. It has a truly fast set-up and pack-down time; there aren’t many campers that really achieve this. Sure, the DOT does miss out on a few things due to its easy set-up; it doesn’t have huge living space or sleeping room. But Drifta views this minimalist approach as the way to happy camping: the easier it is to use, the less stressful and more enjoyable your camping adventure will be.

THE VERDICT

All up, the DOT camper offers a small footprint, can be set up nearly anywhere — even on muddy or wet ground — and is perfect for those wanting something easy to use without any extraneous bells and whistles. Luke Sutton believes it is the perfect touring set-up, and if you’re inclined to agree with him, the Drifta Offroad Tourer is for you.
