Wild Boar Camper Trailers Razorback: Review
The unique design of this easy to set up camper makes the Wild Boar Razorback one worth investigating.
Many of the camper trailers we review in this magazine have side-fold softfloor or rear-fold hardfloor configurations. It is only every now and again that we’ll see one that folds over the front of the A-frame. Wild Boar is one of a few camper trailer manufacturers which appreciates the benefits of such a design, presented here in the Razorback 2015 Forward Folding Camper Full Off Road, with an internal lounge.
DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
Like a number of other camper trailer enterprises in Australia, Wild Boar imports many of its components from China. The chassis and bodywork are made to Wild Boar’s specifications, with much of the assembly – including all gas and electrical work – done at Brendale, Qld.
Underpinning the Razorback Forward Folding Camper is a galvanised 100x50mm RHS chassis and drawbar. The inner frame and body sheet panels are also galvanised, inside and out. It’s all designed to keep weather and saltwater corrosion at bay, with pinch weld sealing on the doors keeping out the dust and water.
Any good camper trailer should have a decent kitchen and this one is no exception. The stainless kitchen box slides out from under the rear seat. It comes complete with a three-burner cooktop and adjoining stainless steel sink. Both have smoked glass lids, which is handy because there’s no bench extension and washing up will involve juggling around the plates and cups.
On the drawbar, one of the two storage boxes has a slide-out suitable for a 65L fridge or some 80L models. The next one has a couple of slide-out trays suitable for all manner of items.
