For example, this bugger weighs 1,040 kg (2,293 lbs) dry and can be loaded up to 1,500 kg (3,307 lbs), and all that's made possible by a galvanized frame with a welded and bolted drawbar. a Cruisemaster DO35 coupling completes the picture. Oh, wait, it doesn't. One crucial system we need to consider is the suspension, and for the Series II, an independent trailing arm setup is supported with heavy-duty shock absorbers and Australian King springs. In short, you won't have to worry about what the terrain throws your way; over 20 years of know-how is sure to count for something.
Now, I want you to picture this thing hitched up behind your truck, loaded to the brim with gear, tools, and whatever else you use for adventuring, and you're driving along toward that X on your map. As you do, you may encounter uneven terrain, sandy beaches, riverbeds, and even rocks, and you'll make it across all of that. After you do, stabilize your unit, unhitch your vehicle, and start preparing your campsite. However, take a moment to breathe in the fresh air around you. Listen to the sounds of local wildlife, and maybe even run your hands along this camper's fiberglass shell. Go ahead, pop the rear hatch, unload your gear, and even climb inside for a change of clothes.
Overall, the Sheoak can accommodate up to four guests, but to do so, you'll need an optional roof-top tent. If you're traveling alone or as a couple, the roof rack can be used to carry along kayaks, climbing gear, gas bottles, jerry cans, or a pair of e-bikes. It's your adventure; bring along what you want and love. At this point, you'll have finished that sandwich and are already on your second beer. After this, it's time for a quick siesta.
To do so, access the interior of Sheoak via any of the two lateral hatches and lay your head on the double mattress inside. If you need help falling asleep, a stereo system with connectivity to everything is also found inside, along with a TV, storage, and a control panel for your electronics. Heating is provided by a diesel heater. Have a good night or nap.
Well, all that is just the tip of the iceberg regarding what you can do with a Sheoak and what it can achieve, but how much will it cost you? Well, that depends on a few things, and the first is that these babies only seem to be for sale in Australia, meaning they're built to Aussieland standards. Why is this essential to you?
If you're in luck or flash the right stack of cash, Lumberjack might build a unit for your local roads and living standards. If you're not, you'll be asked to dish out around $30,000 Australian for a new unit. That's around $21,000 American. Sign me up! Even if I have to pay for a round-trip flight, shipping fees, and modifications, the Sheoak is still a machine to be considered if you want to hit the camper game hard.
