Whether it’s time for an upgrade, or your purchasing your first camper trailer – the amount of information available online can be overwhelming. Which brand is best? Hard floor, soft floor or hybrid camper? Imported or Australian-made camper? The decisions are endless and with a camper trailer being a considerable investment, an accurate and unbiased assessment of the market is invaluable.
The Redarc Camper Trailer of the Year is an annual event that provides accurate, authoritative, and fully independent assessments of the camper trailer market. From merits to pitfalls, the annual event is a celebration of the very best camper trailers in Australia, and our JAWA Campers team is honoured to be a part of it.
How Does It Work
The Redarc Camper Trailer of the Year event is run by Camper magazine in conjunction with Redarc, both brands of which are synonymous with the Australian outdoors and off-road adventure. Each year camper trailer manufacturers are extended an invitation to the event, only after being independently reviewed by a panel of judges. The invites are based on the manufacturers experience, qualifications and track record. As a camper trailer manufacturer ourselves, accepting an invitation to take part in the annual Redarc Camper Trailer of the Year event is both exciting and nerve wracking. We’re putting our product up for review by a panel of the most respected judges in the industry.
During the four-day event, competitor’s camper trailers are assessed while setup, as well as undergoing a towing assessment. The event also features a public showcase, allowing the general public to experience for themselves what the manufacturers have to offer.
What are the criteria of a quality camper trailer?
The rigorous four-day testing program assesses the camper trailers in relation to 10 categories:
- Fit for intended purpose
- Quality of finish
- Build quality
- Offroad ability
- Ease of use
- Value for money
The results not only lead to the crowning of the Redarc Camper Trailer of the Year winner, but also deliver valuable insights which contribute to the continued improvement within the Australian camper trailer industry.
Our TRAX 12 was awarded ‘Hybrid Camper of the year’ for 2019, and we’ve taken out the ‘Camper Trailer of the Year – Winner Best Hybrid’ once again, this year with our new Sirocco model.
We design, build and equip all of our campers and hybrid campers to exceptionally high standards with the end goal of bringing Australian’s outdoor adventures to life.
