On the Move Crossfire: Video Review
The On the Move Crossfire is built tough with all you need to get stuck into the great outdoors.
The Crossfire in name and design is as a clarion call to outdoors adventure. It makes that clear by providing an exterior kitchen that, on our trial camper, included a handy Weber Baby Q barbecue. Bring on the next adventure!
DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION
Starting from the ground up, the single-axle independent suspension gets a tick straight away as it helped the camper rise and fall over the sand, without being too bouncy.
As the camper’s track width was the same width as our tow vehicle, it sat nicely in the tow vehicle’s wheel tracks along the beach. This was a welcome relief, considering we started our adventure just as the high tide turned and morning showers had made the still-damp sand all the more tacky. Yet, we managed to become bogged only once – just a minor blot on our sandy escapade.
Around the outside the Crossfire has the right look. However, it’s more than just good looking, in terms of construction style it’s up with current trends with an aluminium-framed composite construction and a heavy duty galvanised chassis.
In reality, given its interior dimensions, considering this camper as anything else other than somewhere to find shelter, store food and sleep is, perhaps, to expect too much.
But then, there is arguably no need for more. After all, offroad hybrid campers of this type are all about keeping things simple, casting off life’s bowlines and catching the trade winds to explore, dream, discover. The unpretentious interior with its comfy bed, basic kitchen, and ensuite has just enough of the right stuff to allow that to happen.
