The Lumberjack Sheoak is a compact camper designed for a quick weekend getaway or maybe longer with reduced set-up times and creature comforts.

Lumberjack says this hybrid makes camping a breeze when there’s no set up required. Accessing the interior is a simple process of opening one of the doors located either side of the camper to climb straight in. While the fibreglass shell provides all-weather protection, inside features include a comfortable queen-size bed, CD/DVD player and LCD screen. Windows and doors are screened and LED lighting runs throughout.
Outside, a large lift-up hatch at the camper’s rear doubles as a hard lid awning. This compact kitchen area has storage drawers and cupboards to keep utensils, condiments and pantry needs. A large four-burner gas cooktop with wind guards is provided, and the plumbed sink connects to a 65-litre stainless-steel tank.
A large fibreglass toolbox sits on the A-frame and houses a 12v deep-cycle battery and is equipped with 12v socket outlets and an Anderson plug to connect to the tow vehicle. This toolbox is large enough to take the biggest chest-style fridge freezer combo, with still room to pack more in.
The Lumberjack Sheoak has a tare of 980kg and a ball weight of 120kg. Starting with a hot-dipped galvanised chassis, the Sheoak’s independent coil suspension comes with dual shockers and 12-inch electric brakes. The roof rack is equipped with a pull-out style awning on one side, while the roof rack is strong enough to take a rooftop tent if more accommodation is required. Lumberjack expects the versatility of the Sheaoak to appeal to couples or families.
