Comfort And Space

Privacy screens inside the camper give you three separate living areas, and everyone has their own space. The Marlin Explorer 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.

Customisable And Australian-Made

Our trailers are a rugged and sturdy semi-off road design, but can be easily upgraded to full off road for the more adventurous. Built entirely in Australia, these trailers have been tried and tested under all conditions. Be sure to talk to us about any extra features you may need to suit your style. Our trailers are definitely not ‘one-size-fits-all’ so you can be sure you get the camper trailer you want when you order your Marlin Explorer.

Marlin Explorer- The Trailer For All Conditions

Fully water proofed canvas protects you from bad weather, while the specially- lined roof helps keep you cool and comfy in the heat of Australian summers. Maximum air flow is achieved via the huge windows all around your camper, and no nasty surprises can get through the super fine midgy screens.

Our Unbeatable Guarantee

So whether you need a camper trailer to get away for short weekends, or you want the space to enjoy an extended stay, the Marlin Explorer brings all the comforts and quality of a high end camper trailer without the costs for extras you dont need. Our 2 year warranty is our guarantee of quality workmanship, and one you wont find anywhere else.
