Kimberley Kampers, an established name in the camper trailer industry, has introduced its ultramodern Kube camper trailer to the American market. This uniquely designed teardrop camper, with its robust construction and all-terrain capabilities, promises an unparalleled camping experience. Now available for preorder in the United States, the Kube camper is set to revolutionize road trips and off-road adventures with its innovative design and extensive features.

Design and build

The Kube camper trailer merges traditional teardrop aesthetics with modern design elements, featuring a rounded front end and a squarer, vertically walled upper body. This design not only retains the classic teardrop charm but also maximizes interior space, allowing for a more comfortable and versatile camping experience. The trailer measures 17 feet (5.2 meters) in length, providing ample room for its occupants.

One of the standout features of the Kube is its panoramic viewing capability. The interior is designed with dual-pane windows on every side, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. The 72 x 80-inch (183 x 203 cm) Australian king bed is positioned to take full advantage of these views, ensuring that campers can enjoy the scenery from the comfort of their bed.

Interior and comfort

Despite its compact size, the Kube camper is designed to accommodate up to two adults comfortably, with enough space to squeeze in a child or two if necessary. For families with pets, the entry aisle can serve as a space for a dog bed. The optional futon kit for the front entry/lounge area provides additional seating or sleeping arrangements, making the Kube a versatile option for various camping needs.

The interior height is sufficient for sitting up in bed, and the foot of the bed provides access to a front storage console equipped with a Corian countertop and an 85-liter upright fridge/freezer. The kitchen setup includes an expanding slide-out with a dual-burner gas stove, hot/cold sink, and storage drawers, all protected by a quick-rolling awning that provides shade.
