Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Yes, our Star Vision showrooms are open during the COVID-19 pandemic. This can change, so we recommend that you call the local showroom near you to confirm opening times and stock levels. Please find our trading hours on the Showroom page.
Regarding the pandemic, we have put in safety measures to help protect customers and staff (with hand sanitizer stations, regularly spraying down surfaces, and maintaining proper social distancing practices). At camper handovers, we are wiping down the campers with anti-bacterial solution prior to handover.
We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, if and when the situation changes we will update everyone through our Facebook page, our website and our email newsletter.
All our campers and caravans are manufactured in our overseas facilities that we own. The campers and caravans are then assembled in our Melbourne workshop and go through a full pre-delivery check. We use both Australian locally sourced and imported components.
The hybrid and off-road caravans are virtually complete when they arrive at our showrooms. However, there is some minor assembly required such as the front boxes that hold the gas bottles and Jerry cans and other items like awnings, spare wheels etc. The wheels are removed with bearings, brakes etc being checked.
A range of vehicles can tow our camper trailers and caravans. However, it is always recommended that you check the owners manual for specific details regarding the vehicle’s particular tow ball capacity, TARE weight and Aggregate Trailer Mass (ATM).
The difference between ATM and the TARE weight will be your payload i.e., how much weight you can add to your camper. You will need to keep in mind that having your water tank/s filled, gas bottles loaded, Jerry cans of fuel or extra water and a fridge will take up some of this payload.
The most accurate way to ensure you are not exceeding your ATM is to take your trailer to your nearest public weighbridge and get it weighed. You should be able to find your nearest weighbridge through a Google search.
Yes, all our campers are designed for full off-road use. Our campers can pretty much go anywhere your 4WD can, on beaches or rugged off-road tracks.
They come standard with trailing arm independent suspension, twin shock absorbers and coil springs. We use McHitch universal drop-on couplings on all our models. These come supplied by us with the mating tapered tow-pin that has a screw thread at the top to lock it down and a hitch pin to provide a further level of security. We fit this tapered tow-pin to your vehicle at camper pickup. There is no need to take your existing tow ball off as we will do that as well.
