Active Campers Manufacturing is the producer of quality slide-on campers, locally made for Australian conditions. Active Campers Manufacturing began in early 2002 at my parent’s property in Red Rock New South Wales and then relocated to Woolgoolga New South Wales in late 2010. During this time, Active Campers Manufacturing has consistently grown to be a leader in the slide-on camper market.
The construction of our slide-on campers has been tested on some of the roughest 4 x 4 tracks in the Australian outback including the Simpson desert, Canning Stock Route, Anne Beadell Highway, Madigan Line and Cape York to name a few. Active Campers Manufacturing uses Monopan (product of Germany), which is a thermoplastic sandwich panel consisting of polypropylene-honeycomb core and fibreglass reinforced polypropylene face sheets. These sheets are then joined using a thermoplastic fusion/welding process. The light-weight nature of these sheets allows our campers to endure rugged conditions without compromising on comfort.
For as long as I can remember our holidays were spent camping. We tried everything from tents to trailers to campervans and motor homes, depending on our activity and type of car available at the time. My dad never went out and bought something but preferred to build it himself to suit our family needs. Besides a small family car to run around in, we always had a ute or light truck for work purposes and so this was the platform to start with. The camper had to be removable, so that when the holidays were finished, work could begin again using the same vehicle without transporting beds and a kitchen around, thus the slide-on camper was conceived.
