Aussie Swag Campers Shuts Up Shop

Article by · February 8, 2018 ·

One of Australia’s premier hard-floor camper builders has allegedly closed down. A notice has been posted by clearing house, Auctioneering Link outlining details that all of the manufacture’s assets are to be sold off on February 15. Assetts include an NQR Isuzu Truck, bandsaw machine, pan brake press, metal cutting guillotine, angle grinders, compressors, dropsaws, edge bender, drills, screw drivers, mig welders, industrial fans, ladders, scrap metal, benders, a tinnie, and office equipment.

Pictures of items to be auctioned include at least two unfinished camper trailers.

Aussie Swag has been contacted for comment, although the company’s listed phone numbers is disconnected and its Facebook page hasn’t been updated since December 16. However posts from that time give no indication the company might have been struggling.

Aussie Swag Campers is a family run business that has been building hard-floor, rear-fold campers since 1985. The company has one a variety of awards for its products, and as recently as last year was displaying an automatically opening camper with very modern features.

Paul Khoury of Auctioneering Link told ROAM that the company isn’t in liquidation, and believes the decision to close down wasn’t a result of insolvency. As we find out more, we’ll continue to update on the situation.

Recently, Kimberley Kampers has also been in the spotlight, as it put itself into voluntary administration, although it is still trading.

    Maybe closed due to trying to build bigger and better campers, as our new camper still leaks, they don’t care now. No warranty backup.

    I think it is very sad. We have had 15 years of wonderful travel with our Aussie Swag Classic and it is still going as good as the day we bought it. Always found the owners to be more than helpful with any enquiries we have had. I’m sure Chinese imports have killed them and Kimberley Kampers too but the workmanship is second to none and those who have bought the cheap Chinese imports will soon realise that they don’t stack up to Australian conditions.
