Cavalier Camper Trailers come from Australia and are available through specialized dealers in the United States. The campers are available in on-road, off-road and rough-road models, depending on your needs and where you wish to camp. Options on these trailers are such that each camper is a unique and near custom made model.
Tops and Sizes - On or Off Road
Options for the style of camper top, and size of the rig are available through Cavalier. Size options include 9-foot-long campers or the larger 14-foot model. Camper top options give flexibility should your camping be in extreme rain, rough conditions or on prolonged exposure to the elements. The deluxe camper top comes with canvas covers to protect the camper from harsh weather, sun and abrasion from low hanging vegetation. The standard top is lighter and suitable for all-around use.
On-road models of the camper are for hauling along paved roads and hard-pack gravel. Off-road models have reinforced axles to go through soft sands, loose gravel and dirt roads as well as off any road and onto primitive surfaces. The rough-road models can go on dirt roads and soft gravel surfaces.
Kitchen and Storage Options
The Cavalier kitchen options for the campers include a swing-out exterior kitchen bench that provides extra space for food prep and cooking. There is a full swing-out kitchen where not only is extra space provided, but a stove and food prep area. There are pullout kitchens that retract into the camper housing, and a pullout storage locker that retracts into the camper body for travel and extra storage.
Keeping the camper trailer protected from stones, grit and obstacles prolongs its life. Options for Cavalier campers are available to protect the rig from this debris. There is a stone-guard to protect the front of the camper and absorb the impact from stones and grit during off-road trips. It installs over the front of the trailer next to the spare tire.
A gas-powered top lift is available that allows for effortless operation of the camper top. If your camping includes boats and kayaks, a boat rack option is available for transport on the rig. You can handle extra water needs with the 70-liter water tank option.
