Hardon campers in Kelso, Townsville Australia assaulted me with their COMPANY vehicle on Riverway Drive at at 4:30pm on 10-6-2012.  Refusing to yield and allow a potential customer to merge, the female drive instead accelerated, waved in a mocking fashion, and mouthed "haha!" at me. 

Luckily for this incompetent criminal representing Hardon Campers in Kelso, Townsville, I was able to slam on my brakes and also drive onto the median, preventing a pileup that would have been caused by this terrible company representative. 


The matter has been reported to the police and I wrote this to ensure that no one supports this terrible, laughable excuse of a company. 

Here is some info from their hideous website:

How long does the camper take to set up?

On the second time I set up the camper and not rushing took me approximately 30mins.

Back to topWhat is included in the camper?

We have set the camper up as if we were going camping, so therefore all you need to supply is clothing, bedding and food.

Back to topHow many people does it sleep adults / children?

There is a queen size bed, a double bed and the dining area folds down to make a single bed.

Back to topIs the camper water and dust proof?

No. The fridge and a stove both run off gas that needs to vent outside in the event of appliances leaking gas.
This is in accordance with state and federal legislation.

Back to topDoes the camper have a water tank?

Yes. It is an 80 litre tank.

Back to topDoes the camper have a fridge?

Yes. It is a three (3) way fridge with freezer compartment.

Back to topDoes the camper require power?

The camper can be powered from a 15amp power point (all camping sites) or using our 10amp to 15amp step-up box
for domestic use. It also has provision for a deep cycle battery which will only run lights as the fridge and stove will run off gas.

Back to topDoes the camper come with linen?

No. The sheets fitted are as mattress covers only.

Back to topHow much storage room does the camper have?

One (1) upright cupboard (when erected), two (2) storage drawers under dining chairs, lift up lids to access
under sofa chairs. While travelling there is room for eskies, clothes and bedding up to the height of the bed ends.

Back to topDo I have to wait for the canvas to dry before I can pack the camper up?

If possible.

Back to topAre there any restrictions as to where I can go?

There are no restrictions as long as the following conditions are met:

(1) If interstate travel is required we have been given a final destination

(2) There is sufficient hire time allowed for. e.g 800kms travel per day

Back to topWhat sort of vehicle can tow the camper?

Your vehicle needs to have a towing capacity of more than 1600Kg. Electric brakes are fitted to the camper
and instructions on use will be given on pick up. Side mirror extensions will also be fitted to your vehicle to comply with Legislation (included in hire rate).

Back to topWhat sort of plug connection do I need to have for the camper?

We will have the required adaptor to plug into your vehicle, if you can let us know what style was fitted with your tow hitch.

Back to topWhat is the towing capacity for the camper?

1600kg or greater towing capacity, with a 50mm ball.

Back to topCan I tow the camper with a hire car?

This will need to be discussed with the company which you are hiring the vehicle from, and as long as there is a tow hitch.

Back to topAre there any limits to where I can take it? Intrastate or Interstate?

Not as long as we have received an interstate itinerary and have given written permission.

The minimum time is a 'weekender' which is three (3) nights, normally pick up Friday and drop off on a Monday.

Back to topWhat are the external dimensions of the camper?

The camper in towing configuration is 5460mm long 2100mm wide and 1770mm high.
