Although I've seen campxers from across the globe, when it comes to creating vehicles that can go off the beaten path, nobody does it better than the Aussies. This makes sense for those even remotely familiar with the Australian environment; the harsh conditions mean that people must be equipped with capable vehicles.
Today's trailer camper, the Classic Tourer, is also Australian-made. Its manufacturer, Supreme Caravans, is headquartered in Victoria, Australia, where it has custom-built its vehicles for more than 30 years. What initially started in a small workshop has now grown into a full-blown brand with a vast range of products, with a simple mantra: "Live Your Life, Live Your Dream, Live Supreme!"
The Classic Tourer is one of the five premium models currently offered by Supreme Caravans, and it's become a best seller due to its budget-friendly price tag. It's available in two series: Family and Tourer. The Tourer versions sleep up to three people, while Family variants can accommodate a whopping nine souls in the largest, full-option model. Each series comes in many floor plans and sizes, so chances are you'll find one that best suits your needs and wants.
The Classic Tourer is designed with longevity and durability in mind – Supreme Caravans describes it as a "semi-off-road caravan." This term can mean something else for each person. For this company, it means you can take its vehicle on the beach, in national parks, or basically on any dirt roads without any form of extreme off-roading such as rocks, water crossings, and more hardcore environments. Supreme Caravans' Territory range of trailers is a better choice if you're looking for an even more capable vehicle.
Regarding its construction, you can choose between double-ribbed aluminum cladding or aluminum composite panels, which offer full insulation. The body features a crewed and glued Meranti frame, which sits on a 6-inch box section A-frame chassis connected to Roller Rocker load sharing suspension. The 16-inch J-Tracks tires have been specifically chosen for their off-road capabilities, with a spare on the hot dipped galvanized rear bumper bar, which can hold up to 120 kg (265 lbs.).
Let me tell you what else you can expect to find on its exterior – one of the critical elements is a large roll-out awning covering the side of the trailer. There's also a full tunnel boot toward the front, as well as another handy boot just near the hitch. A nice touch for it is that it has drain holes on both sides, so it allows you to store some wet equipment such as fishing gear or a wet suit.
Now, let me move on to the interior – I'll guide you through it and tell you what you can expect to find. As soon as you enter through the triple lock main door, you'll discover a modernly styled interior with premium. Keep in mind that Supreme Caravans offers different designs for its interior, including various options for its upholstery, flooring, benchtops, and more.
I'll start with the lounge area first – this is probably where you'll be spending most of your time inside, except perhaps the bedroom. It features two café-style seats and a tri-folding table, which maximizes the available space. There's enough room for two people to have a meal there, and if you work remotely, you and your companion can fit your laptops, connect to nearby plugs and go on about your business.
Some people might think that cooking possibilities are limited when living in a camper – however, they've probably never seen a genuinely well-equipped model. Admittedly, you probably won't have enough space to fit specific equipment, such as an air dryer, but that doesn't mean you have to limit yourself to really simple dishes.
Another critical space for any camper that some people might overlook is the bathroom – in this RV, you'll find a well-equipped space where you won't have issues taking care of your daily hygienic needs. It has a luxurious look, with modern fixtures, a shower cabin with a glass door, and a ceramic toilet. Another nice and useful feature is a fully automatic washing machine, although it only works with cold water. Above it, you'll find a small pantry to store all bathroom necessities.
A notable detail for the Classic Tourer is the windows – not only are they double-glazed, but they're fitted with five locking points, as the last thing you'd want is a window flying off when off-roading. They can easily be fully opened, and they come integrated with a privacy screen.
The last space I'd like to touch upon is the bedroom – it boasts a full queen-size mattress, heaps of room to move around, spacious wardrobes on both sides of the bed, as well as nightstands. It's the standard arrangement you'll find on premium campers, and of course, you'll find all necessary elements, such as plugs, storage spaces, and plenty of lights, reading lights included.
By this point, you've probably understood the multitude of premium features you can find on the Classic Tourer. It's genuinely well-furnished, especially when you take into consideration its price. Compared to campers I have covered from other brands, this model stands out with an affordable price and an excellent setup.
