    I think that's deceiving though mate. First time I set up a camper it was unfold this, flip that, push this pole up, only half push that pole up until this is done, get it square, peg that, then push that pole right up.....kidding me!! But after a couple of goes when you know what you're doing it goes up quick sticks. I reckon that thing could go up in under 10 minutes with practice but I'm not a podder so not for me. All cudos to that guy though for making what looks like a well designed product for the needs of people who like to camp and sit IMO.

    Depends on the design but most camper trailers are buggers to put up and if you add the annexe it makes that one look easy as .
    Our double fold camper is quick and simple if you leave the annexe off ,time it takes hasn't really changed and just for an overnight stop maybe five minutes or less add ten minutes plus for annexe if using poles add two if using my converted set up .
    While the Offroad campers are getting very capable your still towing and there are spots you really couldn't get a camper trailer into which is where these tray jobbies would probably be more comfortable than a roof topper .
    Nowadays many can be adapted to be easily removed which is a plus .
    Guess it comes down to if you have a ute and a need , our first camper trailer a soft floor model I wouldn't use it unless I was staying put for a week but this new one is dead easy and quick which means I'm on my arse sipping a beer in less than five minutes .

    Overextended trays can also create towing issues to wisely consider, especially with tinny’s on tow. Extended trailer drawbar’s are a must to create better entry angles as per snippet potential:

    I fell asleep & missed the end. How did it finish?

    Imagine putting it all up in the rain and wind.

    There is no rush. Our Youngest is in Year 12 so I am just looking around for different styles of camper,and/or caravans.




    Setting up is a major issue for me, especially overhead work and lifting more than 10kg. Mrs mudsane suggested I sell the Old Trol , and buy a ute.

    Yeah. When I had the Navara I looked at lots of those tray back things. I ended up just keeping what I already had, lots of them are like just having storage space and a roof top tent.
