Jimboomba Camper Trailers



    The Excalabar is the latest model to be added to Jimboomba Camper Trailers growing range of aluminium bodied campers.

    Rob Moore started Jimboomba Campers just over 3 1/2 years & since then has been manufacturing camper trailers for customers requiring specific needs. The Excalabar's design originated when Rob wanted to build a camper trailer for his own personal use that had the lot. Some of those great ideas from over the years, as well as his own have been built into one fantastic camper trailer.  

    The new off road flagship has a great range of standard inclusions like a walk-in staircase to the bed, DVD/LCD TV pop up console, built-in safe, fridge slide with storage box, as well as generator & battery compartments.

    A Supagal RHS chassis is fitted with Vehicle Components independent airbag suspension & Gabriel shocks which gives adjustable ride height for varying loads easily adjusted with the in-built compressor. The airbags can also be adjusted separately for uneven camping grounds.

    The fully enclosed sides give plenty of external storage via 8 doors, all key locked. The gas strut assisted bedbase is hinged one side giving access to the liftout storage trays.

    To keep you out there as long as possible the Excalabar has provision for two 20 litre jerry cans, two 4.5kg gas bottles, two 120 amp deep cycle batteries as well as two 85 litre water tanks. The spare is rear mounted on a swing away carrier to balance the weight.

    The rear main living area is well screened with midgee-proof mesh. The stainless steel kitchen slides out from the trailers rear into this covered area. The huge A-frame mounted storage locker houses the generator on a roller slide for easy access. 

    Standard features of Excalabar also include

  • Honda EU20i generator

  • 50 litre Waeco fridge + storage bin in a slide out draw

  • 40 amp fully automatic 3 stage battery charger

  • twin 120 amp deep cycle batteries

    All of Jimboomba's trailers are built on the premises while the Australian made canvas 15 ounce roof & 12 ounce walled tent sections are manufactured locally.
