Why Buy a Marlin Camper?
Marlin Campers prides itself on providing an affordable camper trailer which retains all of the important quality features for when you are choosing your very own camper trailer. There are many different areas which are important to consider, and below we will outline the areas that allow our campers to stand out from the rest.
Canvas: Marlin Campers has a long and strong relationship with Oztrail, an Australian company based in Brisbane, which enables us to provide our customers with a product of outstanding quality. Oztrail has many decades of experience in working with canvas, as their large range of swags, cabin tents and touring tents can demonstrate. They bring their vast knowledge in canvas manufacturing to the range of camper trailers, and it is this experience which underpins the 2 year manufacturer's warranty provided with all of our camper trailers. The 600gsm (or 15oz) Satproof canvas used in the Marlin Camper Trailers is industry leading. The canvas is waterproofed through a hot impregnation technique that bonds the water proofing agent to the material. This ensures that the material's water proofing is highly durable, and unlike some aftermarket or external water proofing techniques, the canvas' water proofing cannot wear off. This is particularly important as constantly opening and closing the camper trailer over a lifetime can wear some inferior waxes or treatments. The canvas we use on the roof of our camper trailers has been further improved. To darken the material, the roof canvas is double dyed. This darkening helps to keep the camper cooler in summer. The outer layer of canvas incorporates a silver thread, which assists in reflecting the heat from the sun, again keeping your Marlin Camper cooler and more comfortable. Both of these techniques are unique to Oztrail. The final word on the canvas is relating to the stitching. Not only are all of the seams double stitched, the main seams are also folded together, giving a four layered strength, and ensuring your seams stay dry. This is yet another unique feature to Oztrail camper trailers, and quality you won't see in other camper trailer tents, including the more expensive brands.
Awning Walls: Our entire Marlin Camper range can be fitted with a set of canvas walls which will double the internal space of your camper trailer. For ease of use and practicality, our walls come in four sections, which simply join together with durable Velcro trips. There are two main benefits. Firstly, not having to erect a single heavy wall means that you can put up the awning walls simply and comfortably. Secondly, you are afforded more flexibility in your setup. On a quick trip you may only need to setup one wall for a little wind protection, or you may want two walls for privacy. The choice is up to you. Marlin Campers provides two flooring options for the awning. You can install a full PVC floor which is made from the same heavy duty as the main floor of the tent, or you can opt for a mesh floor. We recommend the mesh as it again provides flexibility and many caravan park require a mesh awning floor these days, it ensures you will not kill the grass. Secondly, the mesh allows any dirt, sand etc to filter through to the ground so that you do not have to continually clean<
