In its new guise, the reconfigured Classic shares even more of its components with other Kimberley Kampers.

The Kimberley Kamper Classic is the definitive Australian hardfloor camper. It is soundly designed and built, beautifully finished and supremely functional, delivering a remote camping experience that has few peers today.

If your conscience demands canvas over your head in the bush, invest wisely and confidently in this tried and proven product whose appeal shows little signs of wavering, despite the hordes of lower-priced imitations entering the market.
