2017 Model Kimberley Kamper with 85L upright fridge

2017 Model Kimberley Kamper

Packed with many new features in 2017

No longer have to dig for that item in the chest fridge

The 85 litre upright fridge allows you to open and pluck drinks straight out. Don’t worry anymore about finding “smashed eggs” after the kids have taken drinks. The top freezer section will hold that special ice cream and make ice cubes for you every day. The old concern of “loosing all the cold’ in an upright is smashed with the 280W of available solar and the 200Amphr Bluetooth Lithium battery.

A separate Freezer for quick chilling drinks or food for all the family

On the driver’s side on a dedicated slide is a compact 12L freezer that will drop to -18 deg C. You can also use it as a second fridge. Pack more fifteen cans in here for immediate chilling or hold a rack of lamb and ice cream for a special dinner treat. This italian designed ABS finished freezer uses half the power that you would expect. Lift it out for day trips and pop in the back of the car. It is low profile and the only one of it’s type in the market.

Kick the billy – instant hot water and “no hands” auto dispense for a hot cuppa

This instant hot water station provides 100 deg C hot water after you place your cup underneath. Keep your bickie in one hand and just wait for the cup to fill then move it away for an auto dispense. This patented technology always returns the water in the tube to the 12V system and is certified in Europe for health and safety.

Sunset with your favourite music streaming from a Bluetooth Soundbar

Camping and music can go hand in hand with your sunset drinks hour. If this is your style, then our soundbar will stream your music. Operating on 12V, this system has the “standby” feature to drop back to virtually no power until you are ready to stream.

280W of Black Optima Solar – just the very best!

To power the devices above you need the maximum solar power with the latest technology. We have increased the maximum solar capacity to 280W. This is now the upgraded Black Optima Solar with high efficiency cells. The 280W array weighs less than 12 kgs. The base solar panel on the Gullwing lid is now a 70W Black Optima Solar panel. Inside the lid , you can store another 3 x 70W panels that fold out into a 210W array. These can be remote from the Kamper if it is in the shade. Just plug in and leave it charge. The 70W panel is now standard in 2017 in every model.

200Ahr Bluetooth controlled Lithium Battery

Step into the best available Lithium battery system with a 200Ahr battery monitored from your smartphone. This capacity is equivalent to 400Amps in AGM technology.

Not only do you get the convenience of higher capacity but you get a huge weight saving of more than 120 kgs compared to the AGM equivalent.

Best Outside Kitchen in an off-road Camper Trailer

best outside kitchen for off road camper trailer

This is a big statement, so what makes for the “best outside kitchen” in an off-road camper trailer? Well firstly, one that has been designed by a woman. Yes guys, we can design great suspension but when it comes to kitchens, work flow and layout, you have to engage the masters of multi-tasking. So at Kimberley we took this seriously and after extensive interviews and trial layouts came up with these requirements, courtesy of the fairer sex.

Requirements for a best outside kitchen:

  1. Safety first with no gas connections inside or near a “front storage box”. Gas bottles have to be well stored and clear of the cooking space.
  2. Have a “U shaped” cooking layout that positions you in the centre and the family around the outside of the “U”.
  3. Have a pull out dining table so that up to 3 kids can sit and eat while you continue cooking and can keep and eye on them. Preferably have this built in as stainless steel so it cant be knocked over and is easy to clean and wipe and slide away.
  4. Have this dining bench away from the gas cooktopglideout master kitchen with drawers and stainless steel preparation area
  5. Have a large food prep area in stainless steel
  6. Have the food prep area away from the cooker/ cooktop so the food prep area does not get to the dangeous “warm condition” that promotes bacteria growth
  7. Have the cooking area away from canvas and the canvas side of the trailer to avoid a buildup of residue on the canvas and for safety. (most Australian canvas is flamable, all Chinese canvas is flamable))
  8. Have drawers for plates, knives and forks, cups
  9. Have hot water “on demand” at the sink for easy washing up and cleaning
  10. Have a filter on at least the cold or drinking water.
  11. Have the sink on the “end” or “outside” edge of a pull out kitchen so your partner can washup while you are still in the cooking area.
  12. Have an exceptional LED light at the sink for washing up (and quality control inspection)
  13. Have a separate “fire pit” or “fire BBQ plate” utensil drawer as these will get dirty and black. This has to be as long as possible.
  14. Have the fridge on a roller slide that can be locked back into position with one hand or even a bump of the hip.dual split pantry in outside kitchen
  15. Overhead lighting is essential but has to be the non UV LED’s that minimise the number of insects.
  16. For cooking, there is a need for a high capacity burner for a large frying pan
  17. There is a need for at least 2 more burners for billy/ pasta boiling
  18. Some prefer a griller for toast, some prefer a BBQ plate
    Kimberley offer a choice of 4 different cooker combinations.
    A note on the number of gas bottles and gas lines. The regulations limit the amount of energy on any one gas line. So if you want to operate a high capacity large single burner you will need 2 gas lines and 2 gas bottles! The is safer and gives better management of gas refills.
  19. Pantry access to be easy and well lit at night.
  20. Need all the above for a road side stop so that the kitchen can be used within a minute of stopping.
  21. Wind protection of cooker gas rings is best done with special round wind ring protectors right at the flame point under the pot OR with side protection on a BBQ.
  22. Ideal to have an overhead “cover” for wind and weather for roadside stop.
  23. Kitchen must be easily packed away in less than a minute so “camp vermin” do not have access overnight. (apologies to visiting emu’s)easy place to dry the tea towels
  24. An easy place to dry at least 2 tea towels and/or kitchen cloths
  25. An easy place to hang a rubbish bag away from vermin on the ground
  26. A sealable rubbish container for overnight storage away from vermin
  27. Place for a fan for those hot nights that cools the cook but not the food.
  28. Easy draught skirt on backside of camper trailer in event of storage under the kitchen area.
  29. Easy wind protection from a Quick to erect awning and side wall.
  30. No “steel”; just stainless steel and powder coated alloy materials that are easy to clean and look good ten years later!
  31. Add a weber BBQ for the slow cooking roasts or easy BBQ.camper trailer weberq em
  32. If you want “no LPG” for safety or just cleanliness, Kimberley has a diesel cooker with a glass ceramic cooktop for the outside kitchen.Platinum USA diesel cooktop 3059 e
  33. And finally, open it up after a dusty trip and find it clean and easy to use straight away inside!clean kitchen after mud and dust in cape trip
