What a horrible piece of SH--.After sales service USELESS

Tent Does not fit frame, dust and water leaks, chassis bent, These campers are made to be towed from home, Set up in van park for holiday period, then packed up and taken home. Not made for touring the outback. So if you want a good camper DONT BUY A MARS CAMPER. Show details

Average camper terrible customer service

Enjoyed our Mars spirit for a couple of years but can see the quality is cheap. Awning was horrible to put up until we made some modifications.
Please be careful with the winch as the weld in the bracket let go one night and fractured my skull leaving me with stitches. When I told Mars they said if I drove from Sydney to Melbourne they might be able to fix it free of charge. Instead I fixed it for free with a mate and a welder.  Show details

Very bad customer service. Our 2 campers are falling to bits

Can't get any response from Mars warranty team. Their campers fall to bits, fridges don't work and they won't act in accordance with their legal obligations under the consumer guarantee section of the ACL. Show details

Excellent, three years old now great product

Purchased the camper new and have completed around 4-6 trips a year since, has been down to the snowy mountains, most of the east coast and south east Queensland. Had two small issues towards the start which were resolved immediately, even offered further assistance and follow up from the Brisbane dealer. Show details

Never again!

We bought this camper for a 4 month trip around WA. Everything went wrong with it. Excessive amount of dust in everything which broke our fridge. Gas strutts gave way. Leak in kitchen which shorted out lights. Slide draws jammed. Wheel misaligned, wore out tyre. + more. Took it in for repairs, received the worst attitudes from dealer and after camper being with them for over 6 months it is STILL NOT FIXED! Show details

We understand the disappointment with the service received from the South Australian dealer which we no longer is one of our official Dealers due to other similar complaints about bad attitude when issues happened.

Happy with my 2pac

Have had my 2pac for bit over 2 years now and still love it.
I did have a couple little issues at the start all rectified immediately.
I drag it through some pretty serious offroad and it performs exceptionally well.
Couple of mates have the other "brands" that had the same issues you hear about but nothing was done to fix it.
I highly recommend mars and will buy another no question Show details

The issues here have been resolved. The first part sent wrong was personally delivered by a team member in Mildura shortly after the customer return. We learned by this review that it was still not right and followed up to amend the situation

Unhappy customer

Bought a Mars Rover Deluxe - arrived with a bunch of issues, missing gear, kitchen slide pulls out too far and can't be pushed back in without using pliers on the locking mechanism, pump stopped working on the third trip etc - in its current state our camper is useless and we're now a couple of months in trying to get this sorted on warranty and so far keep getting told "we must have broken it by using it wrong" - absolutely the worst customer service I have ever received. Save yourself a headache and buy from someone else.
