If you would prefer not to drag a camper trailer around when you travel then have you considered the option of a ute camper? Specially designed ute campers or ute add-ons are available to change your ute into a whole on wheels.
Ute campers are like a utility vehicle or pickup truck, that replaces the tray for a small caravan that is a lot similar to a pop up caravan.
They are best designed for off-road traveling and relatively difficult terrain that other caravan’s cannot sustain. Since it is entirely mounted on the vehicle, there is less danger of your caravan getting damages or toppling over.
The main highlight of utility campers is storage, which are made to include as much storage items and equipment packed inside as much as possible. Once you plan to stop over even at a place where there is limited or uneven platform, you can still camp up with your convenience as everything takes support of the vehicle.The bed usually installed is a king sized bed that can be easily spread out from the storage. If you wish more, you can always store sleeping bags and pillows with its ample storage facility.
They come in multiple designs but they are so easy to open and close the caravan that anyone can do it, and it does not require more than one person to have everything ready. It generally comes with built in refrigerator, permanent gas connection and portable kitchen. For storage of items, it has a kitchen pantry cupboard and kitchen storage area to keep all the edibles and cutlery respectively.
There is also clothing storage along with general purpose storage. The power system is dependent on the size of battery that is installed. However for greater independence, some caravans have the option of installing a solar system so you will never need to recharge at any station. Water supply is also powered so that it can pump itself some water from any external source.
