Pricey new Nexus camper tops expanded 2017 premium off-road range
Along with Track Trailer’s Tvan and Kimberley’s pop-up caravan, one of the most recognisable shapes in the camper trailer market belongs to the Ultimate, built in Moruya on the NSW South Coast.
And just when you thought the X20 model launched to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary in 2014 was the ‘ultimate’ Ultimate, it now turns out to be the ‘penultimate’ following the introduction of the new 2017 Nexus model at the recent Sydney Caravan Supershow.
Taking the Ultimate range to five models, the Nexus builds on a good, lightweight camper design by adding some new toys, new exterior and interior décor and lithium power, albeit for a premium price.
While premium hard floor camper trailers models and the range-topping Tvan, Vista RV and Pioneer Mitchell models all top out in the low to mid-$60,000 range, the Nexus pushes the envelope into the next bracket, with its pricing from $73,500.
So, what do you get for hard core hybrid pop-top money?
For a start, you get a new look, with the all-fibreglass Nexus now even smarter with its two-tone white and charcoal body finish, topped with a new-look light grey canvas fold out tent section with a built-in safari roof.
Standard 20-inch five-spoke alloy wheels shod with premium Cooper off-road tyres break new ground for camper trailers, which are rarely fitted with anything larger than 17 or 18-inch wheels – usually matched to the tyre size of their tow tug.
Inside, white leather is used for the U-shaped lounge/dinette seating, with timber-look features employed in the galley, which gets a new carbon fibre benchtop housing a lidded sink and a two-burner gas cooktop. This is matched by a removable carbon fibre dining table.
Cosmetics aside, the biggest change in the Nexus is unseen and consists of dual 100A/H lithium-ion batteries (instead of twin 110A/H deep cycle AGM), controlled by a Redarc management system incorporating a battery-saving low voltage cut-off switch.
Twin 160W solar panels and a Redarc 1500W Pure Sine Wave Inverter are also standard on the Nexus, providing enough electrical firepower to keep a coffee pod machine running hot for many days on end in remote areas.
A wireless reversing camera, built-in tracks for roof racks, a gas space heater, 110 litres of fresh water storage and a 110-litre compressor fridge complete the Nexus’s comprehensive spec.
Apart from its added equipment, the Nexus still ticks all the boxes that have made the Ultimate a popular hard-floor alternative for camper trailer buyers for the past 23 years.
These include its light weight (850kg Tare), massive 570mm ground clearance and long-travel coil spring independent suspension, which means it can go pretty well anywhere behind even a medium-sized 4WD.
Plus, with its cavernous 1230 litres of storage in its front boot, you can take a lot of comfort items like outdoor chairs, a Weber Baby Q, etc. with you.
Interestingly, the Nexus displayed at the Sydney show was fitted with AL-KO’s new 3500kg capable 50mm off-rad ball hitch – the only caravan or camper trailer we saw at the show with this new extreme-terrain coupling.

Ultimate Campers says: Thanks for the nice words Michael. Just one thing though….the final paragraph has us a little confused…we don’t fit the Nexus with the coupling you saw! Maybe you were so bowled over by the best camper trailer at the show you started hallucinating!

Take your outdoor adventuring to the next level with Ultimate’s NEXUS
For the ultimate in top-quality, Australian-made campers, look no further than Ultimate’s new NEXUS model.
A great looking camper with quality manufacturing and the ability to perform in exceptionally hard impact environments, the NEXUS takes the successful Ultimate concept to its highest level of achievement.
Outwardly, the NEXUS has similarities to an upside down boat with its fibreglass body, flat transom and curvaceous, pointed bow with the huge 1340L nose cone that allows an incredible amount of storage. Thus, it comes as no surprised to discover Ultimate owners Michael and Wendy Hackett have a strong history in boat building.
Setting up the NEXUS takes next to no time, in fact, choosing the perfect campsite will probably take longer! Simply fold down two outrigger legs followed by the rear-moulded stairs, unclip the roof locks and open the gas strut-assisted roof section and you’re almost done.
With a tare weight of only 850kg, compact dimensions and super tough construction, off-road tracks present no problem for the NEXUS, and it’s a nimble rig to tow. But the real pièce de résistance is found inside: the large king-size bed that comes complete with fitted sheets and an EMP bed underlay. Talk about luxury.
The NEXUS has a terrific blend of componentry to please serious long term travellers with more than a hint of style and purpose.
The Ultimate NEXUS is priced at $73,500.

Ultimate Campers earns its name
We looked at Ultimate Campers' new NEXUS a few months ago, and in Melbourne we got to have a closer look around. The NEXUS rides to camp on a burly Duragal steel chassis and trailing arm suspension system before popping open into an elegant sleeper with king-size bed, leather couch and full kitchen. Available features even include a carbon fibre countertop and laser projector system.
If the NEXUS' AU$73,500 price tag scares you off, Ultimate offers a number of models below it, featuring the same rugged chassis construction and watertight body. The company also had the AU$58,900, mid-level XTERRAN on display in Melbourne. While the XTERRAN's overall feel and materials aren't as comfy or stylish as the NEXUS', the model does include comforts like the king-size bed and kitchen with dual-burner stove, sink and 110L fridge.
