Campfire Magazine give a run down on the new and wonderful products at this year's NEC show. OPUS is a highlight in the trailer tent/folding camper review!

Campfire Magazine first discovered our OPUS Camper a few years ago, and it soon featured in a review of 'cool campers'. This time they comment "Our winner, by a wide margin, is the utterly fantastic OPUS. So, why the OPUS? Well, for its looks, its ease-of-opening, its build quality and its all-round versatility. Price isn't bad either. In appearance, it's a mix of a safari tent and sci-fi - airy, spacious and with options and accessories to suit family size ( four to ten berth) and your camping and outdoor life. The kitchens are beautiful, the beds comfortable and the sitting/dining room made for socialising. What's more, the new AIR OPUS inflates itself in two minutes. It's lightweight and low-profile and the racking system means you can load it with bikes, kayaks and more for your travels.

HiConsumption - AIR OPUS

While we love camping more than most other getaways, there's one part of it that we just don't enjoy. We're talking, of course, about pitching a tent. Dealing with the ill-fitting canvas exteriors, trying to tame the long and unwieldy poles, and driving stakes into the unwilling ground can turn any campsite oasis into a nightmare. But what if your tent could set itself up? Well, then you'd have the AIR OPUS Camper Trailer.
