We are really happy with the ute topper, its been 2 ½ years now and its holding up well, its well travelled having gone to Western Australia, The Oodnadatta Track, all over Queensland and Fraser Island, Kangaroo Island twice, Flinders Ranges twice, Clare, McLaren Vale, the south east and lots of trips to Deep Creek. We have been to places with the camper that we would not have been able to go with a trailer. In and out of cities & towns, and over some very rough tracks that you cannot get a trailer through.
I call it our swiss army knife of campers as it has everything. We have as much or more stuff than some people towing trailers with the economy and convenience of a single vehicle. I love that it’s so quick to set up if you want to stop on the side of the road. The fly cover on the top gives it extra protection from the weather. The cover over the kitchen is great in sun or rain (and we have had lots of both). It’s great to be able to get to all the draws and cupboards without opening the top and stop and cook lunch without any trouble, we also take the camper on picnics as we always have everything with us.
We have added our own bits like a solar panel under the roof rack. Shelves behind the fridge slide give us even more room. Plastic boxes with lids in the clothes draw, and in the space for legs we have lots of room for food (we don’t take the legs with us as there is no need to leave the camper as it’s so easy to pack up and you have everything with you).
