Frequently Asked Questions About Wedgetail Campers
Do you make one for a dual cab ute?
Right now, we make 3 models to suit single cab utes, space cab utes and also trailers. We make them to be comfortable, reliable and to have a full-size queen bed.
However... stay tuned for for an exciting announcement regarding a camper for dual cab utes. We're working on it!
I really want one on a dual cab ute. Is it possible?
Sure. Several of our customers have made their dual cab ute suit the camper by extending the chassis... one customer even has a 6x6 conversion! Then you get to keep your beloved ute and have room for a Wedgetail on the back!
A dual cab option is coming soon...
I live a long way from Newcastle. Where can I see a Wedgetail Camper?
We have a $400 Cash-Back offer to help with your travel expenses. Go here for more details on our cash-back offer.
Alternatively, contact us and we'll sort something out for you!
Can I tow a boat or trailer behind it?
Yes!! This is a big benefit of Wedgetail slide on campers.
What car do I need for a Wedgetail slide on?
As long as you have a tray that is 1,850mm wide and 2,100mm long, we can fit the Wedgetail Camper. But please check on your GVM and total load length capabilities.
Do I need a GVM upgrade?
Short answer is no. However a GVM upgrade will make the car drive better and allow you to carry extra load. Remember, if you’re going off-grid with a Wedgetail you will appreciate the extra fuel and water you can carry. We always recommend having this done on light vehicles.
What’s a “Slide In Camper”?
Slide in camper, ute camper, ute back camper, tray on camper, tray back camper, lift off camper, jack off camper… they’re all just different names for slide on campers.
"We've had our wedgetail camper for over 3 years now. We love the quality and design of the camper and also the minimal lifestyle it gives us for holidaying. Compact, simple, comfortable and a minimum of fuss."
- Brenda & Greg, happy owners of #84
Do you have different models?
Yes, we have 3 models... W, WT and WTC. Compare the 3 models here. Every camper we make has the same sturdy base frame and body. Then you choose your model, depending on what luxuries you need. We work closely with you, to make sure you get exactly what you need.
Do you make a camper trailer?
Yes. Your camper pod can be fitted onto a custom Wedgetail Campers trailer. Go here for more details on our trailers.
I already have a car fridge. Can I fit it to my Wedgetail Camper?
You are welcome to fit your own equipment e.g. fridge and BBQ.
How much do they cost?
It depends on the model you choose. Contact us for more details. Note: We have a weekly repayment deal exclusively available for Model W.
I want to go off-grid. Is this camper capable?
Yes! With 90lt fresh water tank, hot water system, on board LPG, efficient fridge/freezer, solar panel, large capacity lithium battery, dual charging methods (dc to dc and 240volt) this camper does not need to be near town… unless you do! (Some of these items are not available on all models. Go here for detailed specs.)
I want to go off road. Will a Wedgetail Camper stand up to off road conditions?
Yes, they are built tough to withstand the toughest conditions. Many of our customers have taken their campers to extremely remote places on the worst roads imaginable.
We’re thinking of travelling full-time. Can we live in it permanently?
Yes, several of our customers are doing this right now. They love the outdoor-living feel of the camper. They can be inside, yet still feel like they are outside in the elements.
Does a Wedgetail Camper have a heater?
Yes, you can choose a gas heater to keep you toasty on even the coldest nights. Model WTC includes a gas heater as standard.
Do I need to set up the whole camper to have a roadside meal?
No. With our outside kitchen you will go from drivers seat to hot BBQ and cold beverage in under 2 minutes.
Do I have to crawl/climb into bed?
No. We have steps up to the bed… no ladders! And you can sit up in bed without bumping your head.
