Review of the Ultimate XPLOR by Outback Travel Australia

Ultimate Campers have a unique ‘upside down boat’ design that’s immediately recognisable. The shape is wind-cheating and ground clearance is among the best in class. Our evaluation unit is an XPLOR version that’s been purchased by two of our long-standing team members, Michelle and Andy Parry.

This couple has extensive bush-travel experience, having completed a six-month around-Australia jaunt two years ago. The Parrys have now embarked on an open-ended trip, to spend more leisure time in the places they liked and to check out new destinations. They intend to work along the way, so their camper trailer needs were quite specific.

The camper trailer they chose had to offer caravan-like interior room when set up, with good ventilation and shade for extended live-aboard periods. It also needed maximum off-road ability, to follow wherever their diff-locked 200 Series ‘Cruiser can go.

The Parrys looked at everything in the market and decided on an optioned-up Ultimate XPLOR.

The electrical system consists of two 110AH AGM deep-cycle batteries, a CTEK 15-amp charger, Redarc 1225LV DC-DC charger,  six 12-volt outlets, boot light, LED reverse/spot light, electric water pump and electric brakes.

Storage includes a 110-litre water tank with gauge, 1340-litre nose cone storage, two jerry can holders and a 3.8kg LPG bottle.

Wheels are 16-inch steel rims, shod with All-Terrain tyres.

The high-quality canvas tent has an inbuilt tropical roof and full-length front and mini awnings.

Tare weight of the Ultimate XPLOR is a claimed 850kg and unladen ball weight is a sensible 45kg.

Bodywork is gelcoat-finished fibreglass, mounted on a high-tensile Duragal chassis and the suspension is independent trailing arm, with Lovell long travel coil springs and Koni adjustable shock absorbers.

The coupling is a simple, reliable Treg 360-degree rubber block.

We’ll have regular updates on the Ultimate XPLOR as the Parrys’ adventure continues.
