We are looking at the double camper from black series and visited the Brisbane office this morning. Is there anyone who has one that can tell me with all honesty how long it really takes to set up?

Hi Andrea no sorry I don’t I used to be able to put mine up in 45 mins just the camper itself no front awning


Not sure about setup time but we warned - when we ordered Sep 2021 we were told we should have it by March 2022, then pushed out to April 2022, we asked today and they say August 2022...
Naturally they likely wouldn't get sales if they were honest with their estimated delivery dates, we really still want our camper but getting close to a year wait is pretty unfair considering initial estimates and no offer of any sort of compensation... We've even gone to the extent of booking a trip to the mainland for Christmas 2022 (we're in TAS) and are concerned.. will they even honour the new estimated date! We've already now lost the first school holidays, and another to come lost it looks like, sort of wishing we went elsewhere, very unhappy kids after showing them our 'purchase' and telling them our plans (yep lesson learnt there)!...
For us the design is perfect so we'll wait it out but - don't order and get your hopes up!
Out of interest I contacted two other camp trailer companies who use components from China and they said 12-14 weeks, which is just as long as a canopy I just had delivered took (from 'Nam)... hmmm...

We recently purchased a new 2019 "demo" Sergeant. We were wondering what size propane bottles fit in the factory racks? The website says an 8.8lb bottle, but we could not find such a thing anywhere online. Is is just a standard 20lb tank? Thank you in advance.

GIC   DM   

In the sergeant you can fit 4.5kg gas bottle holders. The water tank is 80Litres

Hi, we have just picked up a 2014 GIC 18ft camper and just wondering if you have a manual or care instructions you could share with me? We are wanting to re-waterproof it but not sure what is needed?

JJ M.  

Hi Emma . I don’t have a manual regarding canvas but I do have some experience I can share . If you’ve never had a canvas camper the first thing to do is season it . Put it up and leave it for a week getting both rain and sun on the canvas . This helps shrink the seams to water proof the canvas . If it’s not raining use a hose to keep wetting and then drying . If you find it leaks or seeps you can buy canvas reproofing Liquid from Bunnings anaconda etc . Pay particular attention to the roof . The water should bead a little if the original proofing is still ok. Also with canvas you have to make sure it’s bone dry before you pack camper away . If you’ve had to pack up wet you need to put it up to dry as soon as you get back from a trip otherwise you will get bad mould

Hope this helps JJ
