Camper 12 months old. The amount of things that have failed, now Water leaked into the forward fold lid and is now written off. They don't want to know about it. Blocked me off their socials so I don't let people know. Been told they have had a few written off. Dont waste your time on the terrible quality
Purchased in for $28,000.
So quick and easy to set up! We upgraded the mattress. Great for beach,off-road camping. Definitely recommend.
Very easy set up!!! Boat rack a bonus and very easy to use with the gas lifts! Love cooking on the pull out kitchen!!! Very awesome camper!!! If you love off road camping or any camping I would definitely recommend

Good but ...
Have a 2018 SC-FF trailer. Good trailer but have or have had several main gripes - one is the mattress which is super hard (and uncomfortable), so have had to use a foam layer and a mattress cover to make it softer. And why a king size mattress? Everything, from decent sleeping bags to bed covers, seem to come in queen size these days. However, my biggest gripe is the noise of the water pumps! Drives me and most of the campsite crazy. Everybody knows when we are up by the noise of the pumps in the morning. How to quieten them?? They shouldn't b...e that loud. Does anyone have an answer - I'd be keen to hear it. Only other gripes are the fact that you can't access the inside without the top being up - the struts block the door from opening - and the attached fly flaps and cracks like a whip in a medium to strong breeze, making it sometimes difficult to sleep. I'm sure most camper trailers will have problems and these might not seem important but they do niggle and detract from an otherwise good trailer. So far the SC-FF has been a good choice. Tows well and set up is easy. If only I could quieten those damn water pumps!

Big Camper Purchase for me
Bought my SC-FF6 at Lismore 4x4 camping show July 17 was a bit disappointed not receiving it until late November , had 2 weeks camping with no leaks at all.
My evakool fridge did not work from start but that is not Stoney Creeks issues , was fixed after arriving home.
Annexe takes a bit to set up and mattresses very uncomfortable had to spend $300 on toppers to get some good sleep.
Structurally I can not fault it and looking forward to more trips away.
Best investment I have ever made!
I purchased my SC-FF6 from Gold Coast caravan and camping show 12 months ago! Great place to check out all the campers in one place. After crawling around on the ground looking under all the campers in my price range, I went back to stoney creek campers. The build quality of this camper is unbelievable! I ask how it would handle Cape York! Salesman said no problem, he had me right there! I’ve used my camper at least 10 times in 12 months, I have never had a problem with anything at all. So it’s service time, back to stoney creek with nothing wr...ong with it, the service guy ever so helpful and informative. I honestly could not recommend this company enough! Sales, Service, product quality! Unbelievable Keep Up The Great Work Guys! In conclusion Thank You!
Great idea terrible quality
Although they have helped with a couple I have been charged a little.. disappointed considering I didn’t need to invest that much more to get a lot better..:. We have had rust on the body (always covered); sheered bolts holding the bike carrier; extra support on the bed over the rear required even though we wouldn’t have had 70kgs - that is two children; seal at the front; broken poles; lights sparking and wiring faults.... still reliable nothing that has caused grief but would consider your purchase...
good idea- poor quality
they are a nice camper, we purchased the SC-FF6 and have found whilst the overall idea is good, after 12 months we started having to replace/repair alot, all due to poor quality add ons. Water hoses all deteriorated within 12 months ( they supplied new but we had to fit), tap on sink very poor quality, tack welds on doors to pull out kitchen have all broken. We are noticing some stitching in canvas failing. our was an early model- the dealer comment- parts are just cheap chinese items.....As an early model, most people will accept that there will be some parts that with time, they will work out they should have used something else. But how the replacement of these items is dealt with by the dealer- they simply don't care.
We couldn't be happier
We purchased our stoney creek camper scwt in January 17, have a few trips under our belt now, everything from 40oC to small hail storm and 30min of flooding rain, well in our king mattress we where not only comfy but not one leak at any time. OK so my gripes doesn't come with a hot tub (I'm working on that) no seriously my wife and I looked at every camper we could before buying and quality verse price you will be hard pressed to do better. If you want to save on weight then spend another $50,000 or so,yes when loaded they are heavy but my 4x4 ...tows it fine and no heavier than any other on the market in its category.the kitchen is layed out fine for us with everything accessible and the fridge right there. As for battery accessibility well they last at least 3 to 5 years so I think I will worry about that later if it's an issue at all, easy to access gas bottles,easy fill water tanks, this is not sounding like a condemning report I know but there is one thing after being parked near the beach for 5 days the centre hubs on the wheels showed signs of rust,bit of polish and solved.look seriously quality for price I don't think you can do better but go spend $76000 if you want we will keep $50000 in the bank and see you all at the next camp site cheers. And did I mention my new king bed.
Stoney creek campers poor service
FWIW, we bought an Australian made SC-FF6 for our family last year, after seeing it at the Bris Caravan and Camping show. We fell in love with it based on a few things (ease of set up - I can flip it open without the painful winches, hard floor which is off then ground, heaps of room, welded construction etc etc.
We mainly travel in land and rarely do beach work at all. We have sold it within the 8 months we have had it for the following reasons:
Poor design: My brother in law says it was designed by blokes - built strong but wi...thout thought eg, the trailer cannot be accessed closed up as the struts cut across the door, so you have to open it up to access anything inside while in transit - you soon learn to become a smart packer. The drawers in the front storage cabinets slide out and clip the internal seal of the door and eventually cut through it after one or two trips - suggest a simple door latch to prevent it swinging back on itself would be a useful asset. There are only 2 sets of lights in the van interior, both controlled only by a rocker switch on the control panel - so you have to hop out of bed to turn the lights on/off - a simple in line switch in proximity to the lights and your bed end (ie for reading) would go a long way. Oh, your main water tank is in front of the axle and the smaller in the rear this just adds to the heavy front loading which could have been offset if they were reversed. After a few months on the road we also noticed that the exterior front storage cabinets started coming away from the main body of the van - something was bending somewhere? Being steel makes them strong and did I mention heavy (see below), but as soon as you get a stone chip (even though we got the stone guard) it will still get them and it will rust - eventually you will start to get a great Ocre coloured streaks along your paintwork - something the alloy imports don't have to worry about. Extremely heavy: The down weight on the tow ball is IMO extraordinary even when unpacked, god help you when you fully packed up you will need a heavy duty tow ball. We ended up putting another jockey wheel on as the one on it was too short and too flimsy - the new jockey wheel was a long reach one as we found most campsites had you at such an angle that you didn't have enough reach with the std one, not only that it started to flay outwards due to the excessive weight on the front draw bar. While they do tow well, they are heavy and so expect to be dropping into your power band when on any hills. The lead for lights and brakes is way too short and so an extension is needed. Oh I hope you don't have to take your batteries out while you own it - you have about a 1/3 turning space with a open/ring spanner (can't get a socket in there) and so will take you some time to get them out. The redundant Features: The sink doesn't rely on a simple pressure switch to turn the water on an off when plugged in. You have to connect another lead so that the pump works - redundant feature IMO something the Black series doesn't have to do. When I ask the sales people why they said it was so that your water won't come on while travelling and inside your van - however your water is not connected while travelling - go figure!. Also your main pump switch is on the opposite side of the van to your kitchen.
Questions & Answers
Thinking of buying a scff6 2016 model. Anything I should be looking for?
Hi Mark P I hope you solved the noisy pumps. I recently bought a second hand SC-WT, and whilst happy with it, the pumps are insane. We have reached the point we don't use them in a campground they are that bad. I have replaced the pumps to no avail. I have added a rubber spacer to the mounts with minimal difference. I assume it must then be the piping. Any solutions appreciated as this will really complete what has been a good purchase to a great one.
I did similar things to pumps to no avail. I replaced with slightly bigger pumps (pump rate) and this seemed to work a little but not enough. I believe that the noise has to do with where the pumps ar...e located (externally and on the underside of my trailer). I think the pumps reverberate through the frame, increasing the noise ( I believe the location of the pumps used to be internal, not external). Have a friend with a Blue Wave camper and you can hardly hear their pumps! They were very surprised by the noise from mine. Stoney Creek don't seem to be interested in problem.
We bought a second hand SC-FF 2016 and the gas struts need replacing. I csn find any specifics on these units. Any suggestions?
Try camec in brisbane. Don't go to SC campers they are very poor on service and their quality is somewhat lacking
We had a similar problem with our Stoney Creek when we bought it (second hand) the guys at Stoney Creek in Ipswich were great about it and offered to regas the originals as they were found to be deffe...ctive, had the trailer serviced at the same time and could not have asked for better service, haven’t had a problem since.
