The Tvan Camper Trailer Advantage!

Imagine sleeping securely under a hard roof with no flapping canvas.

Protected from insects and the elements by strong solid walls that provide great insulation from noise, hot sun, cold nights and wind.

When the tent is deployed (doubling your living space) it’s secured to a fold out hard floor, so you’ll be up off the ground, dry and secure.

Most importantly, when it’s time to move on, your bed will remain made up and dry, even after a wet pack-up.

Camping Configurations

The 60second setup!

One of the best features of the Tvan Camper Trailer is its 60second setup. Because the tent is stowed away in the rear hatch of the van and not on the bed, the owner can choose whether or not to setup the full tent.

Accessing the bed is as simple as unlocking four over centre catches, folding down the deck and releasing the gas strut assisted hatch. The owner might then choose to shut the hatch after themselves and go straight to bed (pad locks can be fitted to prevent the catches from locking) or to install one of the two optional rear door covers.

The rear insect screen option is ideal for tropical weather as it’s manufactured from sand fly proof mesh and allows maximum air flow.
The rear canvas screen option is ideal for all touring conditions with a large entry door (sand fly proof mesh) and full canvas cover to protect you from the wet and cold elements should the weather change.

All options can be fitted at the time of setup and the rear hatch height can be adjusted to protect the rear entry.

The Tvan tent sets up in less than 5 minutes!

The Tvan Camper Trailer is amongst; if not the quickest of the all camper trailers in the market to setup and pack up. We don’t make this claim lightly, but if the correct procedures are followed, our owners can and will be able to easily, level the van, lower the tent, attach the floor and mouth to the body of the van and install the internal upright poles with ease.

Just reverse the procedure to store the tent and pack up.

The major benefits of the Tvan tent are:

    • No canvas ever packs on to the bed – Meaning no dirt or water or dust on the mattress and the bed can always remain made.
    • The customer can choose if they want to set up the full tent or just do the 30second setup with the rear canvas screen.
    • Packing the van is a breeze because you don’t have to partially or fully setup the camper trailer to access gear in or around the cabin area.

The stainless steel benchtop utilises advanced sheetmetal techniques for a premium feel, including rounded edge. The powder coated, predominantly aluminium body makes access to storage a breeze incorporating many drawers for storage of all your kitchen needs.
The Premium Kitchen boasts a Thetford 3 burner (2×1.5KW, 1×2.5KW) glass topped stainless steel cooktop with piezo ignition and matching stainless steel sink with flick style tap, draining board and cutlery drawer located below.

The kitchen utilises a lock in / lock out handle which accommodates single handed operation and slides on Track Trailer’s own design of ball bearing runners.

Diesel Heating and Hotwater

Track Trailer has used the proven OEM Webasto Diesel system to provide reliable and efficient heating for the Tvan and hot water for the kitchen and shower.
This system is common sight throughout the RV industry as it’s shoehorned it to most high end campers. This system is comprised of a glycol heat pump, heat ex-changer (for heating), tank (for hot water), diesel tank and glycol storage unit.

As you can appreciate a system with all of these components takes up a fair bit of room and often the size of these components encroaches on useful storage space and takes up significantly more space than required.

Unwilling to compromise on valuable space the Track Trailer team set about redesigning the plumbing, wiring and tanks (glycol and fuel) to repackage the entire combustion elements into 1 jerry can sized unit.

This design eliminates messy wiring or plumbing running the length of the van.

Most competitor products fit the fuel tank behind the front stone guard and the other components wherever they can, leaving long runs of wiring, plumbing etc, meaning more holes and more potential for dust ingress etc.

There are several benefits to designing this system into such a small space:

  • It saves on space & weight
  • The system can be assembled on a bench rather than fitted after construction, meaning it’s plug and play and tested prior to fitting, but also easier to troubleshoot if a customer has an issue
  • It occupies a jerry can carrying position on the Tvan rear of the axle, aiding in better weight management system.
  • The units shower output is directly alongside the shower tent
  • The tank can be filled at a bowser and easily on the LHS (away from the road).

Front Boot configurations

The Murranji comes standard with the Front Boot featuring two separately sealed compartments, one for generic storage and the other with a dedicated fridge slide and constant 12V power.

The fridge compartment also features filtered air vents This boot accommodates a spare wheel and 2x gas bottles.

There are many additional options available including, a RHS slide out tray, dual venting and power for up to 2 fridges, a fridge slide swap (RHS to LHS) for longer fridges and a optional height LHS shelf.

Drawbar frame configurations

The Yulara, Tanami and Canning are delivered standard with a drawbar frame that has provision for up to 4x jerry cans, 2x gas bottles & 1x spare wheel. It’s also fitted with large metal stone guards to protect the body and a dust cover for the spare and gas bottles.

Options also include a wood carrier and bike racks.
