Question and Answer Guidelines from Australian Manufactured Camper Trailers Organization

  • What is the most important component in a camper trailer? The canvas tent.
  • Why? If it leaks or has condensation or mildew problems a holiday can be ruined and the camper is not fit for the purpose.
  • How do I know if the canvas is fit for the purpose? It should comply to the Australian standard for canvas AS 2001.2.18.1987 which is also the military standard.
  • How do I know if the canvas meets this standard? Australian canvas manufactured by Wax Converters, Bradmill and Defab meets this standard.
  • Does imported Chinese canvas meet this standard? Tests by the RMIT carried out on the canvas of three-leading importers of Chinese campers show each is very similar and falls far short of the Australian standard.
  • What are the main tests for waterproofness? The cone test. Results, Australian canvas leaks less than 1 ml. Chinese canvas leaked in the RMIT tests an average of 54ml.
  • Is there another waterproofness test? The hydrostatic head test. Australian canvas averaged 53 KPA Chinese canvas averaged 6 KPA
  • Is imported 14 Oz ripstop canvas really 14 oz? CSIRO tests carried out on typical Chinese canvas claimed to be 14 oz averaged only 11 to 11.2 oz.
  • How do I know if the canvas is Australian? Look for these labels sewn into the tent.
  • Does the canvas appearance indicate quality? No. The performance properties are invisible. Only prescribed tests will give the answer. e.g. UV stability.
