Go for an extreme off-road adventure during the day and then curl up on a queen-size bed at night with the feature-packed Onyx model.

Cooking is made easy with the Onyx Stainless Steel swing away 2 burner stove and large drawer kitchen, electronically pumped water from the Onyx's huge 120 litre water tank, and there's a standard 2 drawer pantry and large 679 litre fridge storage box right next to the kitchen.

Enjoy a hot shower using the Onyx's Truma hot water service. You will go further as this camper is fully equipped with 2 gas bottles and 2 batteries that are fed by the integrated battery management system (BMS), and a huge 120 litre water tank.

The Onyx has one of the largest floor footprints on the market with an overall internal living area of 2.6 by 1.7 meters. With winch assisted opening and closing, you'll have your camper set up in no time, leaving you time to get on with relaxing or exploring. The tent has a double size access door, guaranteeing you can enjoy the beauty of Australia from the comfort of your camper.

The Onyx also gets an additional 130 litre under floor storage container inside plus a 20 litre bed head compartment for personal effects, so your belongings will always be accessible and close at hand.

Standard Features


Being a hard floor camper means setting up for the night is easy. Opening the roof is seamless with the use of the front mounted winch. The roof opens to become the floor, giving a huge interior footprint of 1.7 by 5.3 meters. The tent roof is Dynaproofed to 14.9 Oz and walls to 10.9 Oz, and is Midge and Mosquito proof with mesh screens on all doors and windows. Because the floor sits off the ground, you won't need to worry about water, dirt and other creepy crawlies getting in. The floor has a hard wearing Vinyl layer so it will stand up against the worst the outback will throw at it. Ask about optioning up with awnings, wall kits, kids room and ensuite, available on all models.

Body, Chassis and Suspension

Like every camper, the Onyx comes standard with a hot dip galvanized chassis for extreme off-road conditions. With fully independent trailing arm suspension rated to 2000 kg, you can have confidence that your camper will track well behind your tow vehicle attached by a TRIGG hitch, giving 360 rotation and 70 degrees of oscillation. A set of Ridepro 4wd twin tube gas shock absorbers work hard to soak up the harsh corrugations of the outback. At the rear you will also find a hitch receiver which can also be used for recovery or attaching a bike rack so you can take your mountain bike on your next adventure.

The Onyx comes with a huge 120 litre stainless steel, baffled water tank with the option to upgrade with an additional 60 litre auxiliary tank if required. There's a hand pump which pumps water from the tank and is conveniently placed near the kitchen, perfect for a quick wash up before dinner. While water is electrically pumped to the kitchen and shower via the Truma Hot Water system on demand. On the Onyx, all water runs through a water filter, and there's a water level indicator inside the camper too so you will always know how much is in the tank.

The Onyx kitchen incorporates the convenience of a swing away 2 burner stove and extra bench/prep space so you can cook dinner quicker after a long day of sight seeing. The kitchen is lit up by a large LED touch sensitive light, mounted on the back of the kitchen door. Water is pumped from the 120 litre water tank straight to the sink. Extra space to prepare food is easy with a stainless steel slide out drawer with bench. Your cutlery can also be neatly stored in the drawer at the front of the kitchen unit. The Onyx also has a 2-drawer slide out pantry that is located in the front storage box, right next to the kitchen.
