Patriot wins Trailer of the Year Award - Again!

Patriot Campers’ X1 has taken out Camper Trailer Australia’s Trailer of the Year award.

Patriot wins Trailer of the Year Award

While we were out for our 4X4 Of The Year award, our mates at Camper Trailer Australia magazine were over Dargo way, doing similar things with the latest camper trailer offerings.

They conducted a thorough test of the trailers in the Victorian High Country, and at the end of their test week, the Patriot Campers’ updated X1 took the win, making it three titles in a row now for the Patriot team.

Updates to the already impressive Patriot X1 include a wider chassis and 150mm-wider wheel track that results in a 30 per cent lower centre of gravity, for even more stability off-road.

Quality EFS shocks are now standard and ROH alloy wheels are available on the Limited Edition variants, which can be ordered in a choice of colours. The internal battery has been moved to give more room in the redesigned storage boxes and the battery is now charged via a Redarc BMS1230 system.

Significantly, the roof-top tent that was standard on the X1 has been replaced with a camper trailer tent to give more covered space for users, and there’s now also the option to add a canvas patio to the driver’s side.

At the end of 2015 Patriot Campers relocated to a massive new facility at 1 Activity Crescent, Molendinar, Queensland. From there they will be producing the X1, X2, the Toy Haulers, the Patriot Super Tourers – such as Norm’s 79 double-cab, featured last month – and the mighty 200 Series.
