Slide-On / Tray-On Campers

slide-on camper

What is a slide-on or tray-on camper ?

Slide-on or tray-on campers are a demountable camper with a caravan type body which slides on and is secured onto the bed of a table top flat tray or fit within the side walls of  ‘well’ back vehicles. Some models will suit 2WD or 4WD utes such as Holden Commodores, Falcons,  Toyota Hilux (including dual cabs) and others to suit mid-range vehicles such as the Toyota Landcruiser, Nissan Patrol and up to the Ford F series.



Various models of slide-on campers come in insulated solid wall type or a pop-top roof and either aluminium or fibreglass exterior.  It may have wind up legs, hydraulically operated or mechanical camper legs.  There is no walk through to the cabin of the vehicle.

Most slide-on campers provide standard comforts such as double bed, shower/toilet, 12/240V, earth leakage and circuit breaker, gas bottle, kitchen with 3 way refrigerator (12V/240V/gas), lounge/dinette, stove top cooker and sink.

What is the advantage of a slide-on, carry-on or tray-on camper?

  • No on-road cost.

  • nothing to tow if you don’t like towing or you can choose to tow say a boat, horse float, jet ski or motor bike trailer

  • easy parking

  • low centre of gravity

  • removable when you reach your destination

  • perhaps an already owned tray back or utility type vehicle could be readily used for this type of unit

  • less room needed for storage when not in use
