    Default Help me with a camper trailer brand please

    My Google-Fu has deserted me.
    In a previous life I owned a wonderful little camper trailer and now I can't find any pictures or remember the brand name so I can show SWMBO.
    It was built on a standard 7*4 trailer and had piano hinges along each long side and folded along the centre line.
    It was a cheap and simple LW solution to a tent on wheels and with The Bosses health issues we need something with a low entry and with the small 12" wheels on this old trailer it was very low to the ground, it was great with tadpoles. Any ideas and links to pictures is appreciated by us both.
    Done want or need a kitchen or a shower or any heavy mod-cons, all we want is an easy to erect bed on wheels

    Put the words "vintage" and "site:.au" in the search to narrow down to older Australian camper trailers.

    Cant think of the brand, but mate has had one for years...basic camper and 30min to set up. Simply fold out, a few ground pegs, trailer legs and use 2 stay ropes only if windy. Mine always requires some additional poles and ropes...might seem only a small thing but wished I'd gone for the simpler option.
    ...something like this https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/hall...nd-/1265599226

    Challenge will be getting something non 4WD so its not as high.

    Check out Gumtree. There are a heap of really good cheap units with thick canvas for sale for $2000 to 4,000. Some only been used a handful of times.

    Thanx, using "Vintage " helped
    Lots of American pix of a "Cozy Camper" and "Apache soft trailers" they look like the one I used to own.
    So quick and easy to set up and very very light compared to the modern behemoths

    This one looks very simple - it’s in Endeavor Hills, Melbourne.

    I don't know why I didn't find that when looking at Gumtree yesterday but that is what we are after. Close to what I used to own. We don't have the money right now as we have a concreter coming in the middle of Feb but at least Cecile saw the pictures and knows now what I have been rambling on about.

    I reckon you might be able to get a really good price reduction too. Just because it’s so simple compared to some of the ones around.

    https://www.camplify.com.au/s/geelong-VIC-3220/pop-top

    camplify has some reasonably priced pop top campers and camper trailers ($25 a day ot a camper trailer and $50 a day for a pop top with lots of comparative comfort.

    The link didn’t retain the filter I applied ($50) max per day).
