Hunting for an affordable alternative to the latest wave of offroad hybrid campers? The Trakmaster Gibson camper trailer should meet you're requirements.

SPECIFICATIONS: TRAKMASTER GIBSON 

The Gibson pop-top first emerged in 2008 and represented a change in direction for Melbourne-based Trakmaster. It has since developed in to a sturdy and reliable camper with several add-ons during its six year history. The timber-framed construction, excellent Sugarglider independent coil-spring suspension, severe rear cutaway body work and modest dimensions are just a few reasons of why Trakmaster have delivered on this reasonably-priced camper.

With its sleek, aluminium-clad sandwich panels and corrugated stucco-finish aluminium cladding, the Gibson has an old-fashioned feel to it. Yet, with its sturdy and full 150x50mm chassis, aggressive rear cut-away body, huge ground clearance, rugged independent 6in coil spring and large bore shock absorber suspension, extensive under-body shielding and many thoughtful features born of Trakmaster’s 18 years of industry experience, there’s no doubting its capability.

THE VERDICT

It mightn’t be the newest or highest-tech kid on the unbeaten track, but the Trakmaster Gibson pop-top is an honest and serious offroad traveller at a price that now makes great sense.
