As many of you know Camp King started from the passion that Lucas and I had for 4WD’ing and exploring. Most products we design and make because we want to use them and we tweak them to ensure that they perform for others as well. Our recent product testing trip was to Cape York where we were able to test out a number of great products that will be heading your way in the not too distant future.
For the trip, we ran the Camp King Outback Series on the Ford Ranger. This gave us plenty of secure storage, as well as a great place to sleep at night for Lucus & I, the kids were in Swags. Our goal with the Outback series is to create a solution for the factory tub that gives you a lot of the benefits of a steel tray and canopy but without the cost and hassle.
Lucas designed a number of prototype products designed to maximise our space and allow us to have 4 people living out of the ranger comfortably. We were able to comfortably carry 2 fridges, all our kitchen gear including a prep area, cooker and pantry. Most of this was on slides so it was nice and compact. We then had a false floor that allowed us to carry all our other gear in either boxes or bags as needed.
From the trip, we learned a couple of things that we are going to change, but overall we are really happy with the performance and ease of access for everything. We look forward to putting together a saleable solution in the not too distant future, keen an eye on the website, or sign up for the newsletter 🙂
In the meantime, here are a couple of pictures of everything
