Which camper trailer do I buy?
Sounds like a simple question doesn’t it? The simple truth is that purchasing a camper trailer is an investment that can have profound changes in your lifestyle, and as such special care and consideration needs to be taken when deciding which direction to go in.
PMX Campers are renowned for being the best “bang for your buck” when it comes to soft and hard floor campers in and around Perth. With our range of camper trailers spanning between $5,000 to $20,000, we’ve got just about any budget covered. Need finance? Our friendly staff can help you with that too.
2) Towing capacity
Your vehicle’s towing capacity is a factor of its engine size, brakes, weight, transmission, tyres, bearings, chassis, suspension etc. After taking these variables into account, the vehicle’s manufacturer establishes a recommended towing capacity, which must not be exceeded. Our on and off road camper trailers come with 10’ Electric drum brakes and our fully equipped workshop staff are more than capable of fitting a brake controller to your car or 4×4.
3) Number of people camping
Just you and a partner? Taking the three kids along on your trip up North? Dirtbike weekend with the guys? We offer the option of a 13’ or an 18’ tent on our soft floor campers, to make extra room for the family or any guests you take with you or meet along the way on your Australian adventure. Both our soft and hard floor campers have a full wall and floor kit so you can completely enclose the annex and use it as extra sleeping space out of the weather.
Whether you’re camping in the mother-in-law’s backyard over the Christmas period, or escaping her by heading deep into the Australian outback, PMX campers has a trailer specification for you. If you’re hitting the trails, our Trail Ranger off road capable camper trailer is more than able to get you there and back again. Wanting to keep it simple and stick to sealed and light gravel tracks? The M1 Series Buckland trailers come equipped with leaf springs for maximum simplicity and reliability when you clock up serious miles on the blacktop.
5) Tent setup
One aspect to consider when choosing a tent is whether you’re in the market for a soft or hard floor camper. Each has their own advantages when it comes to flexibility, storage space, ease of setup and towing weight. Soft floor campers give the authentic feel of camping, get the kids to help you set up and the memories can be very rewarding and help to develop skills in later life. Hard floor camper trailers are quick and easy to erect and well suited to quick stopovers. Our friendly staff are more than able to help you out in deciding which is best suited to your needs.
6) Options and accessories
Camping isn’t just about the camper trailer. Camping away from Perth for a few days? If you have a battery system, you’ll need a way to keep it charged. We stock a range of solar panels to help you do just that. Tired of camping in the dark? LED’s have come a long way and offer brilliant levels of illumination. We have a range of portable stoves to make cooking up a storm a breeze when you’re away from home. Come and check out our Canning Vale or Wangara stores to see what you need to take with you on your next camping adventure.
It may seem like an incredibly daunting task, but the staff at PMX campers are able to help you arm yourself with the knowledge you need to make an informed decision on your new investment. Let us help you get onto the trails in a brand new PMX camper.
