If your Camper is new, it may leak the first few times it is out in rain due to the stitching not yet “taking up” in the needle holes. We always recommend wetting down your Camper before use. This process will need to be repeated 2 to 3 times before your canvas will be water proof. If your Camper is older and has developed leaks or is taking in water, check out our accessories page for a range of products we stock that can restore water proofing and remove mould.
Yes. Please email us a photo of the damaged hoop bar so we can determine the correct size replacement.

Please be aware that as we have been making camper trailers for over 30 years, some older trailers may have paint that are no longer available or we may not have the particular paint codes. If this applies, most paint shop suppliers can help match up the paint at a reasonable cost.

It is almost impossible to say without inspecting the bearings fitted. For instance, early trailers with 45mm axles, not just our camper trailers, tended to be fitted with Holden wheel bearings and hubs. Later models tended to be fitted with Ford wheel bearings, however this can vary depending on the supplier and what hubs the original customer specified. A similar situation exists with the 50mm axle hubs. They use a more specialised bearing which can vary considerably in specification. They can be tapered or parallel bearings with plain or marine seals and of varying diameters. Cameron Canvas can inspect your wheel bearings and replace them with the correct bearings from our stock or with special order bearings if necessary. Alternatively you can remove the bearing and take them to a bearing supplier who will identify the bearing and supply a replacement.
Yes, if you have the provision on the camper tent end wall. How do I know? Does the end wall have velco or zips? Otherwise send us a photo of the end wall and we can provide a quote.
All trailers must be identified by means of a 17 character Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). The VIN to be used is specified by the International Standards Organisation, known as an ISO VIN. Trailers must be marked with the VIN in accordance with the ADRs. Most registering authorities require a VIN to be stamped onto a substantial part of the trailer (i.e. the drawbar) for registration purposes. It is recommended that a secondary VIN also be provided. If it doesn’t have a VIN plate don’t buy it. The trailer may be stolen, never registered, illegally made or never intended to go on road.

Unfortunately, a number of imported camper trailers claim “100% Australian designed and built”, “Proudly Australian owned” or “Australian made and owned”, so it is not easy for the customer to determine the country of origin. All Australian made tents have a “care for canvas” label provided by the Australian canvas manufacturer sewn into the tent. Buying from a Guild member with this logo, is a guarantee of Australian manufacture.
