Cape York Bush Kamper

New to the Australian bush the Cape York Bush Kamper is a quite unique combination of big muscled, go-anywhere vehicle, caravan and tent. Based on the reliable 70 series Toyota Landcruiser with an inter-cooled Turbo Diesel V8, factory front and rear diff lockers, ball bar and winch, off road suspension, UHF radio, long range fuel tanks, which Toyota claims delivers a massive 430Nm of earth-shaking torque, this is a very serious off-road vehicle.  The extended chassis is fitted with a customised Kimberley Kamper body with an added Gullwing storage pack.

The Cape York Bush Kamper features customised water tanks and a chassis-mounted system that allows for the optional extra of having a boat loader.

Captain Billy wants you to benefit from the value of Planet Green Sustainable Energy 120W solar panels, fitted to Captain Billy’s Eco-Bush Kamper, when discovering Australia’s outback. Most sustainable solutions are light weight, become easy to use and most importantly, have less waste.

There is nothing better than camping in a remote part of Australia on a still and starry night sitting around the flickering camp fire and listening to the myriad of natures sounds. There is great satisfaction to be able to do this for as long as you like when ever you like and without having to start-up a generator.

Captain Billy is committed to maximising sustainability. These new hi-tech Solar Panels offer major benefits to you as well as the environment. By maximizing use of the Solar Panels, you should not need a generator, thereby opening up opportunities to fully explore and enjoy Australia’s great National Parks.

All camping lights are LED which typically use 94% less power than a halogen equivalent and 40% less power than a compact fluorescent. In addition, fluorescent lights contain mercury. These high colour temperature LED lights are fitted inside the sleeping / living area and around the kitchen. They also minimise the attraction of insects and bugs. The sounds of nature without all the bites. Now, that truly is an enjoyable outback.
