This website and AMCTG has been established as a result of poor quality componentry and workmanship in many cheap camper trailers being imported into Australia. The leading Australian manufacturers and pioneers of the Camper Trailer Industry of Australia have formed a Guild of Members to help guide potential consumers of the pitfalls that can cause your family dreams and ‘trip of a lifetime’ to be ruined ending in disaster. We also provide a list of member’s websites that have passed strict quality audits and engineering compliance testing to help short list your choice of genuine Australian Made Camper Trailers companies who guarantee your satisfaction.
The most important aspect to building a Camper Trailer to cope with the corrugations of Australia’s outback and the rugged environmental conditions is to use the best materials – cheap overseas materials are not the answer, and are in fact the main cause of the problems that are commonly reported on internet blogs and industry magazines, and not to mention, the unfortunate and multiple consumer claims with Dept of Fair Trading. Australians are renowned worldwide for manufacturing extremely durable products, and Camper Trailers are no exception.
It is the professional opinions of all our members of AMCTG that the most important part of the Camper Trailer is the Tenting Canvas, and Australian Made Canvas is the only way to guarantee satisfaction. Australian Canvas is made to endure our unique environmental conditions and no other country produces to a similar quality level. Independent Testing to Australian Military Standards proves offshore made Canvas is inferior in a number of aspects including Waterproofness, Weathering, Colour Fastness, and Resistance to UV breakdown, mould and mildew growth. AMCTG Members are so confident in their products, that all of their Camper Trailers that are made with Australian Made Canvas by WCT (www.waxcon.com.au) comes with an extended 5 year warranty.
We highly recommend any potential buyer of a Camper Trailer to read through this website for high quality members of the AMCTG, as well as to read latest articles and news items to fully inform you of how to avoid disappointment from inferior brands.
