REVIEW: MISSION TRAILERS

You may not have heard of it, but this camper trailer may be just the thing you’re looking for.

A lot of camper trailers these days are all about including things that make your bush accommodation nicer than some apartments I’ve lived in over the years. Things like microwaves, TVs, air-conditioning and espresso machines are all well and good; in fact, they could be the difference between you and the family getting out into the bush once a month or getting out there once a year. Some people just enjoy having a certain amount of decadence on hand no matter where they are. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

 

However there are those of us who don’t need that sort of thing, and actually find enjoyment in getting back to the simpler side of life by camping out with as few luxuries as possible, and as far from civilisation as it gets. Such folks don’t need (or miss) things like popcorn makers, electric ovens and spa baths. They like to have a capable and comfortable camper trailer, with everything they need and nothing they don’t. These are the people who Mission Trailers are aimed at. And y’know what? After spending a few days living out of the South African built camper, it kinda redefined minimalist soft-floor trailers for me.

 

Y’see, these things are not what you’d call short on inclusions; but there’s nothing superfluous. There’s no hair-straightener or vibrating shiatsu bed, just basic,  quality gear completing a trailer that you could quite easily spend several months in while doing the big lap (in fact, Mission Trailers told us of one family who have been touring in theirs for over a year straight without a drama). All in an extremely compact size, lightweight package with plenty of in-built versatility.
