Note: Coaming Rail Allowances
Individual trays vary significantly in design from manufacturer to manufacturer. Elements of the tray design that vary include: dimensions, manufactured materials, and assembly techniques. For example, the majority of trays built from aluminium and steel will include a coaming rail down each side of the tray.
The primary purpose of the coaming rail is to provide assembled strength to the tray. Commonly seen in aluminium trays, are coaming rails that are angular in shape.
The Tong camper is designed to include the coaming rail notch on each side of the camper. This ensures that the camper fits the majority of 4 x 4 ute trays in the market.

Select Fitment Method
There are two available fitment available to secure your camper to your vehicle tray: 1) Bolt Down System, and 2) Quick Release System. Bolt down system is a universal system that is suited to all vehicles. This system uses four M10 heavy duty bolts to attach the camper directly to the tray.
The other system of fitment is the Quick Release System developed by Tong Metal primarily to attach Tong campers to Tong Trays. In around 85% of cases this system can also be adapted to securing Tong campers to trays from other manufactures. Compatibility with other manufacturers trays can only be confirmed by sight inspection on the day of fitment.
If the intention is to take the camper off road into undulating country only suited to four-wheel driving, then when strongly recommend the use of the bolt down system as the most secure method of attachment.

Why detachable and not fold out tables? Safety and ease of use.
Standard kitchen benches are 900mm high. It’s a comfortable and safe height for most people to prepare meals.
Fold out tables on vehicles such as ute canopies and slide-on campers are often in the range of 1,100 to 1,200mm high. Our detachable tables have a working height of approximately 900mm.
In combination with our upright mobility refrigeration, your camp kitchen is now much more like your home kitchen.
Cold storage of food and drink in the hot Australian climate is a topic that every traveller has to consider, regardless if it is simply how to keep my lunch cold while on the job, beer cold on the next fishing trip, or while traveling to a remote location with all provisions.
The humble Esky (Trademark, Coleman Company Inc.) and ice bricks, while still a popular way to keep food and drink cold, evolved into the chest fridge (an Esky with a compressor).
Today, very few homes still have a chest freezer. Upright refrigeration technology made the chest freezer redundant because it occupies a smaller footprint, is more accessible, and more energy efficient.
In some circumstances such as caravans and motorhomes, the electric chest fridge has already been replaced by the more familiar upright refrigerator.
Mobility upright refrigeration has evolved such that it is now compatible with slide-on campers. There is now available advanced and energy efficient compressor technology powered by 12 or 24 volt systems.
Benefits of Mobility Refrigeration:
The Traveler Electrical System
