Sleeps up to 8 people
Don’t be fooled by the generous size of the Marlin Explorer as it easily accommodates up to 8 people- but can still be set up in under 2 minutes for an overnight stay.
Perfect for an SUV or 4WD to tow. The heavy- duty, semi-off road trailer is sturdy and durable, but still weighs in at just 500kg.
The marlin Explorer is our Family Camper. Based on a 7×4 trailer it fits the larger 6 person tent on top. The main section is slightly larger then the Escape, however the Explorer has a few upgrades including a thicker mattress and privacy wall with flyscreen. It also has internal and external flaps on all of the oversized windows allowing you to keep the camper dry in rain, and cool in the sunshine. These twin flaps also keep the camper darker inside, meaning you don’t have to wake up early with the sun each day if you prefer a little sleep-in.
The other major difference is the rear door that opens out to the drawbar side of the camper, this gives access to rear of the camper for a shower/toilet option. or you can purchase the rear kids room if you need more internal space.

Hinged camper construction incorporates extra heavy duty hinges for smooth and safe use of gas struts to lift the camper trailer bed-base above the trailer. These hinges are opposed for maximum strength, but allow for easy removal of the camper tent so that the trailer can be used separately. These hinges are not light weight piano style hinges, and are built in at the time the trailer is engineered, not installed afterwards.
