In the search for the ultimate travel trailer, I've once again arrived in Australia. It's here that we encounter Camprite and their G6 MK2, a heavy-duty and overlanding son of a gun with everything a couple would need to live off a land that's typically out to kill you.
Ladies and gets and lovers of the greater outdoors, if you don't live in Australia, I don't expect you to have ever heard of the name Camprite. However, by the time we're done exploring this crew's G6 MK2 camper, you could very well find yourself moving to the Land Down Under; this thing is downright amazing.

For starters, it's important to note that while Camprite may sound new to most of the world, they've actually been active in this business since 1994. Their goal? "giving even the harshest critics the confidence to explore the most remote parts of Australia." That says it all if you ask me, and it brings us to the MK2.

As I mentioned, this unit is for the couples among us, but if needed, it can handle so much more than that. According to the manufacturer's website, once the MK2 is ready for guests, it'll be able to sleep up to six with a central bed layout and its side berths. We'll talk more about this later.

But make no mistake—this is a "touring camper," and that means extended off-grid stays and days away from home. Heck, some explorers use units such as these for near-year-round living, and the MK2 is no different.

At its base sits an Australian-made independent trailing A-arm suspension that can handle up to 1,500 kg (3,307 lbs) of total load. Twin springs and foam cell shocks accompany this system. DO35 coupling and electric brakes complete the base of this puppy. Oh, wait, let's not forget the 16-inch rims and AT tires.

As for the shell and body, we're looking at a fully welded and one-piece construction with a crazy dual-fold design that reveals a massive interior. The body is also supported, no, protected, by features like a stone guard and aluminum checker plates.

Now, at this stage, I would typically head inside to explore what's in store, but the exterior of the MK2 is just so packed with features, more than we'd ever have time for. Still, some are so essential that they just can't be skipped.

The first is found at the front of the unit. By extending the MK2's frame, Camprite is able to add a massive nose construction for more than just a gas tank or two; they installed an entire systems cabinet here, ready with up to 200 Ah of battery power, a Redarc 40 A charger, BMS, prewiring for solar panels, and room for a portable toilet. With a tent annex, you'll be showering up on this platform and relaxing in the morning, too.

Since the MK2 offers up to 1,700 liters (449 gals) of total storage space, if you need any more goodies, there's plenty of space where you can store them. Be sure to take in those track mounts and roof-top racks, spare tire mounts, fenders, and every other little detail that makes this beauty precisely what it is: one mean and ready machine. Be sure to note the 95-liter (25 gals) water tank underneath the MK2.

As for the final trick up this unit's sleeve - the interior - we'll be able to see it come to life the moment we find that spot we'll call home for the next few days. It's at this stage that you'll want to unload the cargo racks on top of the MK2 and begin the process of helping this unit spread its wings. This is where that double-fold and separated top comes in.

Once everything is unloaded, the rear cargo rack the MK2 has in place drops down, revealing a staircase and access to the top of the unit. Once here, one part of the shell will swing to the right, another to the left, and in the process, pitching a massive tent. There isn't much inside except the bedding arrangement I mentioned and plenty of cargo drawers for all your goodies. It's not much, but then again, these types of campers are all about outdoor living, which brings us to the rear of the unit once again.

To the left and right of the MK2's entrance sits a galley completed from two separate drawers. On the left is a cooktop, sink, faucet, and countertop, while the right side shows off a large fridge/freezer and a few bar-style surfaces. It's all you'd ever need to really enjoy the greater outdoors.

Pricing for these babies depends on several aspects, such as your middleman (dealership) and the features installed, but on average, we're seeing a price tag of around $50K Australian, which is roughly $33K (at current exchange rates). Just don't forget; if you want in on this action, you'll need to move to Aussieland.
