North Coast Campers Titanium: Review
The new North Coast Campers Titanium is packed with features, giving adventure seeking campers more bang for their buck.
The Titanium we reviewed was equipped with the self-levelling airbag suspension option, supplied by The Airbag Man, to allow for a lower profile on the highway, greater clearance on forestry tracks and a level set-up when camping on uneven ground. This added only $1500 to the asking price — an absolute bargain for the soft-riding, height-adjustable benefits it brings.
Certainly, with its new layout and high-gloss cabinetry, the Titanium doesn’t feel at all claustrophobic inside and the sensible layout allows two people to move around all areas without tripping over each other. A shoe locker at the doorway and great new knurled self-locking door and cupboard catches are thoughtful touches in the Titanium.
The marine-grade insulated foam glass panel walls are hail-resistant, but in any case the Titanium is well protected all round with waist-high aluminium checkerplate. Various aluminium blanks are fitted to the rear panel to make it easy for owners to fit personalised extras, such as bike racks, in addition to the external, offside shower that comes standard.
Up front, the huge checkerplate storage box will swallow a large portable fridge up to 65L in size on the door side, while there’s room for a portable generator on the other.
The extended A-frame adorning the 3500kg-rated McHitch hitch and 10in solid, swing-away jockey wheel has room for twin gas bottles and a jerry can. Meanwhile, the wood tray above the storage box looks capable of packing plenty of fire wood.
