PATRIOT X1 CAMPER TRAILER
This lightweight unit should be able to go just about anywhere - March 2014

The Patriot X1 camper combines a galvanised steel chassis with aluminium body panels and a roof-top tent, for a dry weight from 700kg, making it one of the lightest campers in the marketplace.

patriot camper x1We love the design of the Patriot X1, because it reprises the original camper trailer concept - a load-carrying box with a tent on top that can follow a short wheelbase 4WD virtually anywhere - while incorporating state of the art construction.

The chassis is formed from laser cut, interlocked and hot-dip galvanised steel and the bodywork is laser-cut, rivetted and seam-welded aluminium sheet.

Suspension is by coil-sprung trailing arms - air springs optional - with twin dampers each side. Because the chassis and drawbar are continuous, ground clearance is unbeatable.patriot camper x1

The standard accommodation is a Hannibal Safari 1.4-metre tent, but 1.8-metre and two-metre models are optional. Yet another roof-top sleeping option is a fibreglass pop-top pod. A second tent bedroom is a zip-on option.

The standard equipment list is comprehensive: large storage box, electric 10-inch brakes, gas hot water system, 70-litre water tank, stainless steel L-shaped kitchen with fridge slide and bench, twin-burner gas stove, wrap-around awning, wet storage boxes, cargo rack, LPG bottle holder, LED lighting and Redarc BMS charging system with 120A/h battery.

patriot camper x1Options include fridge, extended drawbar, additional LPG bottle holder, swing-away spare wheel carrier, twin rear roller drawers, aluminium wheels, air suspension kit with electric compressor, 120W folding solar panel, floor mats, additional battery, stereo system and a full tent wall kit.

Pricing in early 2014 was $29,990 for the standard X1 and $32,990 for the family package unit, with 1.8-metre tent, second bedroom and twin roller drawers.
