Australian Manufacturer Of Hybrid Campers
Kelly Campers was born from a desire by Dave and Di Willoughby along with our Team to provide a cost effective, easy to use, secure, hybrid, off road camper.
Kelly Campers is Family owned and Bundaberg-based with over 50 years combined experience in the aluminium and stainless steel welding and fabrication industry (building and construction both domestic and commercial). We have staff qualified as pressure pipe welders and our Factory Manager has held aircraft welding qualifications having worked on aircraft for many years before joining us. We are committed as a team to providing our clients with a precise Australian built, robust camper that will safely take them wherever their dreams lie.
The Kelly Campers Story
In late 2014 we saw a need to provide people with a safe, easy to set up and pack away camper capable of going anywhere. We have been keen campers for over 40 years starting with our parents in tents then as teenagers in swags and then back to tents with a young family and eventually to a soft floor camper with teenagers. As time has moved on and our family has changed and perhaps... we have become a little bit older, we now crave ease and comfort so we set about designing a compact, fully off road, hybrid camper that filled all the requirements of easy, safe camping without limitations.
We have and still are investing heavily in research and development so that our product continues to evolve. We use our own CAD drawing program which means we design your camper from the ground up and it is then custom built to your personalised specifications and inclusions in our factory in Bundaberg which is of course home to other iconic brands such as Bundaberg Rum© and Bundaberg Ginger Beer©.
Why a Kelly Camper?
The Kelly Camper has been designed for serious off-road users with aluminium external sheeting and aluminium skeletal frame and insulated composite internal sheeting ensuring superior comfort in either hot or cold weather.
Utilising our Factory Manager's aircraft manufacturing skills we have been able to produce the Kelly Camper with an amazingly low towing weight whilst maintaining an incredibly tough all steel chassis including air bag suspension for the ultimate ride in any terrain. Your Kelly Camper can be built with the option of matching wheel track which when combined with a fully ADR compliant 50mm 360° off road hitch means you really will go anywhere in your Kelly Camper. There is also the option to custom colour match your camper’s body and chassis for that extra eye-catching look.

Made local and built Australian
We have utilised Local and Australian products wherever possible using the following quality products. Redarc© for our Battery Management System, Stone Stomper© for optional stone protection, Supa Peg© for the fantastic fox wing awning and varied attachment options, ARK© 360º off road hitch and extreme off road jockey wheel, Vehicle Components© for the best suspension and Lift Easy© for the actuators that lift the electric push button controlled pop top. By using our skills in partnership with our Local and Australian support suppliers we are able to control the quality and brilliant finish of our campers.
Kelly Campers can also accommodate larger families with the addition of a tent which can be attached externally to the awning as an optional extra.
