So a tinnie aluminium boat goes too when caravanning, touring and 5th wheeling with the Australian designed BoatHoist system. The electric front loading 12volt BoatHoist is designed to lift and secure the boat to the existing vehicle roof racks.
5th Wheeler with front loading Boathoist
It transports motor and fuel tank within the low profile framework in the upturned boat on the vehicles roof.
Then when the caravan is unhitched and fishing and adventure are on the menu the BoatHoist re-assembles into a registrable boat trailer suitable for highway.
The BoatHoist bolts onto existing heavy duty roof racks. The boat then glides (using the winch) up and down frontloading detachable aluminium arms that connect to the roof load frame and rest on the existing bull bar.
BoatHoist's Steve Scott designed the BoatHoist so that all the parts used to carry and load the boat are re-used and convert into a sturdy boat trailer. He says the system fits most RV 4WD's, Dual Cab Utes and 5th Wheel tow vehicles.
Get Around Campers uses 14 oz canvas for side-wall and roof construction in their products.
This means their new campers which were on show at the RV Camping Leisurefest at Bendigo are much cooler in Summer and much warmer in Winter because of the quality canvas and the double roof over the sleeping quarters. All their models are now available with rip stop canvas which offers increased strength and durability.
Get Around Campers trailers are relatively inexpensive, yet offer lots of sleeping capacity. This includes a queen-sized bed, plus the annex areas which has plenty of space to set up more beds. For Leisurefest goers who want a low cost holiday option camper trailers are worth a look.
