For journeys big and small, the Ultimate X20 offers comfort, convenience and reliability, all in one.

I loved the Ultimate Xplor when I first laid eyes on it, so of course I was going to love the hotted-up anniversary edition, the X20. At $58,920 as standard, she ain’t cheap, but you’re getting a luxurious and reliable offroad camper trailer made locally on the NSW South Coast, with everything included for comfortable camping.


The fibreglass build keeps the weight down to only 850kg and the package is aerodynamic thanks to that upside-down hull shape — designed to cut through the breeze like the chine of a boat through the high seas.

In addition, the roof in its folded-up position can carry 110kg of "stuff" — surfboard, kayaks, etc. With more than 400kg payload, you’ve got the flexibility to take your toys of choice.

The ball weight is a very light 45kg, making the X20 easy to manoeuvre at camp or in the garage. Another big tick for "ease of use". The 110L water tank is positioned at the rear of the X20, evening the weight out when the front storage locker is loaded.


There is lighting in all the appropriate places (kitchen, bedside, external), 12V outlets aplenty, a Fusion Bluetooth stereo and a Sinergex 700W pure sine wave inverter, all powered by dual 110Ah deep cycle batteries with monitoring system. There’s a CTEK 15A charger and a 40A Redarc DC-DC charger, and provision for 240V power.


I liked…

  • Very easy set-up procedure
  • Loads of storage
  • King-sized bed
  • Functional and luxurious indoor kitchen

I would have liked…

  • A more comprehensive outdoor kitchen
  • Outdoor undercover living area as standard
