You’ve decided it’s time to take the plunge and buy a hybrid camper trailer and hit the open road!
We’ve all seen memes about camping that seem to paint the most idyllic of scenarios. So, the question is, how do you make the experience of camping match your expectations?
Before you head out checking out different campers, have an idea of what you’re looking for. You can really narrow things down if you have a clear idea of what you want in a camper. When looking for a new camper take the time to think about your -
Bear in mind that what you think is a must-have may not even be a consideration on your partner’s radar and vice versa!
But I’m jumping ahead…..
Without a suitable car to tow your hybrid camper with, you’re not going to be heading out into the wild blue yonder at all!
The towing capacity and tow ball rating of your car will have a huge impact on the size and type of camper you can buy. It’s all very well that your car has a towing capacity of 2500kg, but if the tow ball rating is only 100kg you are going to be very limited in the make of camper that you can tow given that the typical hybrid camper has a ball weight of approximately 10% of its ATM (Aggregate Tare Mass or total maximum mass permitted).
It can make your decision to buy a camper a very expensive exercise if you have to update your vehicle to be able to tow the model you’ve fallen in love with.
Life isn’t always perfect, but it does have perfect moments. And camping is just the same, although there are a few things you can do to ensure you get more perfect moments than not.
I’ve always found that after a long day on the road, a quick and easy setup is what I’m searching for. If you can be totally set up in minutes and can sit down and take in your surroundings with a well-deserved beverage in hand, all your worries will disappear. These are the moments you’ll be talking about for years.
Top Tip – For me, one of the most important factors in choosing a camper is whether I can just open up the camper and get into bed at the end of a long day. So, I’d recommend finding a hybrid camper with a bed that you can leave prepared while you're travelling.
Do you see yourself out every weekend, a different destination each week, a cheeky overnight getaway at the drop of a hat?
Do you dream of long touring holidays experiencing all that Australia can offer, exploring the far reaches of the country, going off-road and off-grid as much as possible?
Do you prefer setting up for extended periods in one spot with your friends and family?
I find this question really limiting because the easier the camper you buy is to set up, the more adventurous and spontaneous you become!

Will you be travelling with the kids? If so, where will they sleep? Is there room to store all their gear?
