The beast glistened in the late afternoon sunshine, still wet from splashing through creeks along the Scenic Rim, a dramatic and incredibly beautiful stretch of volcanic peaks clad in subtropical rainforest in the Gold Coast Hinterland. We were towing the Nugget, a rather comically named but seriously capable camper trailer from Brisbane’s Stoney Creek Campers. With a couple of days cleared from the schedule and the weather on our side, we were stoked to be heading into the scrub in this beautiful part of the world to put the Nugget through its paces.

THE WRAP

The Nugget is, overall, a tidy entry level package. The $16,990 price tag won’t obliterate the bank, and for the price you get a well-engineered and capable offroad camper trailer made by people with years of experience. It requires a little bit of refining with it comes to comfort and usability, but these are small changes that are simple to make. Budget-conscious adventurers with a thirst for simplicity and a desire to expand their horizons and venture across tricky terrain will love the Nugget.
