It was no surprise then that a Kimberley customer passionate about Bowler products sourced original Bowler wheels for his new off-road camper trailer by Kimberley.
We have seen a lot of wheels at Kimberley but nothing with the strength and quality of these.
Designed and manufactured in the UK, these lightweight high strength 18 x 8 inch wheels are exclusive to Bowler and are a direct fitment to Defender hubs for matching wheels and tyres between the Land Rover Defender and the Kimberley Platinum camper trailer. Available in white, anthracite and black, they are available from Bowler in the UK at £325 each.
What else did the Kimberley customer order?
On the Kitchen side:
The standard Platinum features of Stainless steel Master Kitchen that pulls out on roller bearings with one hand; the stainless steel dining bench, concealed underneath means one less table to carry; the BBQ and large WOK burner; the clever split pantry that also glides with one hand; and off course the diesel hot water system plumbed right to the sink at the end of the kitchen slide.
Flipping down inside the Gullwing lid is a 22 inch TV that will show DVD’s and TV as you require plus the Smart touch energy, water tank and switching system…. Read and control all of the systems in your camper just like using a smart phone!
In the front Gullwing area of the off-road camper trailer:
A high capacity fuel cell; a 10L methanol cartridge, a Digital DVD, FM, AM and MP3 player, a high gain modem/router for the bush with a 6db antennae. Missing are the 2 x 20L Jerry cans. The Fuel cell automatic controller is shown on the back wall.
On the drivers side Gullwing:
A Weber Baby Q, the diesel hot water system with visi-flow lift of 4m from a billabong or stream that bypasses the tank; the compressor of a 2.2kW split air conditioner; the 3.5L diesel tank (good for at least a month) and then look at the detail on the air suspension system:
Passenger and Driver side paddle vales so that you can get the Kamper perfectly level when at a campsite; below these is the airbag pressure and temperature monitors that display the readings on the in-dash display. This is patented by Kimberley.
Finally an on the road view showing the airconditioner on top…
Rear view with the “selecta-swing-away” – that takes an additional Jerry can and a second spare wheel! Excuse the test vehicle which isn’t a “Defender”…
The performance features of this off-road camper trailer are that it can travel at better speed over difficult conditions, thanks to the air-suspension and superior assisted disc braking.
For a similar specification, Kimberley is 200kgs lighter than any other in its class. It is hard to beat this low weight distribution.
