It had been many years since I ’ d had a look at one of the campers by Victoria-based Star Vision . The company started out selling forward and rear-fold camper trailers but has since progressed to building a range of hybrid campers , such as the CX3 Pro that we hitched up in early April .
The Star Vision range is mostly built overseas but the vans are finished off here in Australia . This CX3 Pro is a 15-footer that does things differently to similar rigs in its class .
The first thing you ’ ll notice is the kitchen built into the nearside . Rather than being fitted with a typical slide-out kitchen , a cooktop , sink , cupboards and drawers have been recessed into the side . It ’ s just a matter of undoing the catches on the lid and letting it lift on its gas struts . Features such as this are rare on such diminutive single-axle rigs – and I liked it .
Within this kitchen area , you ’ ll find a couple of 12V points , 240V power , and even a stainless steel slide-out tray and cutlery drawer .
