OPUS unfolds latest in luxury camping with innovative British-Australian design

The innovative British-Australian developed OPUS camper trailer will make its Novocastrian show debut at the Newcastle Caravan, Camping & Holiday Expo next week.

Local OPUS dealer Kangaroo Tent City will have the latest OPUS Ready To Roll model to show local enthusiasts the latest in luxury camping.

With its unique, pram-like unfolding mechanism, OPUS has already won praise around Australia for its innovation, convenience and value.

OPUS has been co-developed by the British and Australian arms of RV design think tank Purple Line for both the UK and Australian markets.

Purple Line Australia director Malcolm Hill said he was now taking orders for the first units built at the new OPUS assembly plant in Melbourne.

The Australian OPUS differs from UK models in many details, particularly the chassis, and our first customers have helped us to fine-tune the specification, he said.

While the top half with its clever folding mechanism is a credit to the British team, the bottom half is a triumph of Australian design with its tough local componentry.

What all OPUS models have in common is the benefit of very clever designers who started with a blank sheet to come up with something genuinely new.

Kangaroo Tent City has the OPUS Ready To Roll model on Stand 405 at the Expo, 6-8 February at Newcastle Entertainment Centre and Showground.

Standard equipment includes two double beds with inner privacy tents, club lounge that converts to an extra bed, LED lighting, fire extinguisher and sun canopy.

It has a 110 AH battery system, 12 volt and 240 volt outlets, Smev two-burner cooktop, built-in sink, 59 litre water tank, large storage box and twin jerry can holders.

The galvanised chassis rides on seven-leaf off-road suspension and has 15 alloy wheels, electric brakes, 50mm AL-KO off-road coupling and drop-down AL-KO stabiliser legs.

Malcolm Hill expects early April delivery for OPUS Campers ordered at the Expo.
