Whether you’re a veteran of the RV scene or you’re looking at getting your first camper it’s likely that you’ve heard the tag line ‘Hybrid Camper’. It’s getting thrown around a lot these days but what does it actually mean, what is a Hybrid Camper?

When travelling and touring there is often a crossroad in the buying process that can separate people and limit the type of touring achievable. Do you go for the comfort and luxury of a caravan or the ease of towing and accessibility of a camper trailer or slide-on, either way can sometimes feel like a compromise. The Hybrid camper was born to combat this issue by combining the best aspects of both to create a versatile product ideally suited for the great Australian outdoors.

With our Rolls Royce engineering credentials Rhinomax Campers are renowned for producing one of the strongest chassis in the industry regarded by many industry experts as the best and  all backed up by our industry leading 5 year warranty.

Riding on Cruisemaster suspension Australia’s best off road suspension system we are happy to announce this will now also be covered by a 5 year warranty giving you the peace of mind of extended warranty cover on two of the most crucial components of your camper.

Another great review for Rhinomax Campers from the industry experts.

Caravan Camping sales recently reviewed the Defender here is a snapshot of what they said.

Typical of Rhinomax, the Defender is a quality newcomer that does many things either better, or cheaper, than its main competition.

I’ve been a fan of the way that Rhinomax does things since I first reviewed the Discovery. Its expatriated British founders came together with different engineering backgrounds, but brought a fresh vision to the rapidly-expanding hybrid section of the off-road market.

Quick and easy set-up is the name of the game with the Defender: drop down the stabiliser legs, wind out the awning and slide out the kitchen. With its automatic push button roof opening you’ll be set up with a glass of wine in your hand in minutes.
