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.

Powder Coating

Powder Coating Procedure: Completed by leading local supplier. The aluminium components of the camper are manufactured and assembled to ensure conformity to design. Once manufactured and dry fitted, the camper is disassembled into its component parts, sanded, acid washed, dipped in chromate. The camper is then sprayed with the powder coating material, baked in an oven at 200 degrees, and then once cooled, reassembled and finished.

See the Powder Coat Colour Guide for more details.

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.

fitment-1-s1e2 Heavy Duty M10 Bolts and Plate:
Recommended for off-road 4×4 use on surfaces other than smooth graded tracks.
fitment-2-s1e1 Quick Release System:
Designed to quickly lock your canopy down to your vehicle tray using off center latches. One latch for each corner of the canopy is supplied and fitted.

Deluxe Internal Design


The Deluxe Internal Design is universal and fits all camper sizes. The Deluxe Internal Design aims to satisfy the 3 criteria that our customers request: 1. Functionally Comfortable Design, 2. Meal Preparation and latest Mobility Refrigeration technology, and 3. an Integrated Electronics Package.

Weight: 50 to 90 kg

Functionally Comfortable Design

Robust Light Weight Construction:

  • Premium Marine Grade Dimple Plate internal cabinetry.
  • 1 x internal sliding table.
  • 1 x bench seat passenger side (external storage underneath).
  • 1 x cabinet seat with internal and external access (driver side).
  • 1 x full divider.
  • 2 x under bed draws that are ideal for clothing.

Strategic Weight Distribution:

  • The internal fit-out encourages optimal weight distribution by strategically locating heavier items such as fridges and batteries above or in front of the rear axle.
  • Correct weight distribution creates a more comfortable touring experience on and off-road and reduces stress to your vehicle.

Meal Preparation and Mobility Refrigeration

Meal Preparation

Most important criteria for meal preparation:

  • Ease of setup, and
  • Ease of use.

Included with Camper Deluxe Package:

  • 1 x Quick-fit detachable table with sink: 1270 (L) x 490(W) mm
  • 1 x Quick-fit detachable table: 900 (L) x 490(W) mm
  • 1 x Collapsible silicone sink, and food storage area.

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.

Mobility Refrigeration

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.

Weight: 25kg

Benefits of Mobility Refrigeration:

  • Reduced footprint where every square centimeter matter.
  • A massive weight saving of around 30kg where GVM is now more important than ever.
  • Huge savings, no fridge slide required saving at least $1,000.
  • Energy efficient cooling.
