Undercarriage

Undercarriage

Aussie Swag Campers prides itself on making unbreakable camper trailers. The backbone of any trailer is the undercarriage - the chassis, draw bar and suspension. Outback conditions will destroy equipment not made to withstand the rigours of unrelenting corrugations and bull dust filled potholes. Aussie Swag Campers have had the same chassis making team for the last thirty years, and they have seen it all. We encourage you to have a good look under our trailers to see what makes a camper built to take you anywhere you want to go and back again. Longevity is assured by hot dip galvanising the entire undercarriage, including the trailing arms.

Aussie Swag Campers are passionate about their product testing. Whether it's west for the corrugations, north for the 4WDing and bulldust or the islands for beach work, the team at Aussie Swag uses any opportunity to get out and see how their product stacks up in the real world. 

Our customers also provide an invaluable source of real world feedback and over the last 32 years countless improvements and modifications have been customer based.

Features

The Chassis 

The chassis is hot dipped galvanised 100 x 50 x 5mm RHS. Its trouble free design and construction have been perfected during the last 33 years of our campers being towed through the roughest conditions in Australia. The chassis and draw bar are engineer certified to meet ADR 62.

The drawbar is constructed from 175 x 75 x 3mm hot dipped galvanized steel RHS.

It is set up with the following features:
  • A large, three compartment storage/fridge box made from fibreglass composite panels that is the same width as the trailer body (1.7m). Two jerry can holders and two gas bottles are mounted in the front boot of this box.
  • DO-35 coupling with attachment for towing vehicle. These off-road couplings articulate in all directions, are easy to attach and give a smooth feel when towing.
  • Large, solid rubber, swing up jockey wheel.
  • Rhino coated, galvanised stone guard for stone protection.
  • Mechanical hand brake.
  • Charge wire with Anderson plug to enable charging of the battery pack when travelling.
The 195 litre water tank - Made from food grade, extra strong 10mm thick polyethylene. This eliminates the need for a steel stone guard saving weight and inconvenience. It is filled through a lockable filler on the outside of the trailer. There is an electric water pump for the kitchen sink and a water level gauge so you should never knowingly run out of water. There is also a gravity fed water tap fitted behind the mud flap for easy access while travelling.

The spare wheel with winch is located in a galvanised cradle under the trailer. The winch handle is carried inside the shower side compartment.

12 Alko electric brakes - Developed especially for off road travel. They are an efficient high performance unit and recommended for safe towing. A suitable brake control unit (pendulum style) must be installed in the tow vehicle.

Standard hubs - 6 stud, fitted with new, all terrain 265 x 70 R17 AT tyres. Other tyre sizes and stud patterns are available and can generally be matched to the tow vehicle. This is often an extra cost if the trailer wheels need to be genuinely interchangeable with the tow vehicle and vice versa.

Suspension - Suspension The trailers have CRUISEMASTER® XT COIL independent trailing arm suspension with gas/foam shock absorbers, which gives smooth, stable travel over rough, corrugated roads and tracks. The suspension has proven to last many years use in the roughest conditions. The suspension and bearings are rated to 2000 kgs, giving the Ultra a huge pay load of 550 kgs. CRUISEMASTER® XT AIR (air suspension) is available for extra cost.
