The “Scout” is another first for our team at Flying Fish Campers. For sometime now we had realised that the camper trailer market is based on very large tents fitted to heavy trailers and consequently restricted families with small to medium sized vehicles from owning a camper trailer. We also noticed that camper tents for motor cycles were very small and off course only designed for a maximum of two people, and if you owned a motor cycle camper and you were able tow it behind your vehicle you still couldn’t accommodate the rest of your family or a couple of friends. We decided the market was crying out for a family sized tent that would be light and compact enough to fit on a small trailer and be towed behind either a car or motor cycle, and so we embarked on designing and manufacturing such a tent.
First we created a strengthened folding bed base and mattress that would extend into the main bedroom area. Next we reduced the size of the main bedroom area, and manufactured a large annex roof in both height and length that could be fully enclosed as a sleeping area for an additional three adults. All this must then fit onto a small bed board. Then we wanted to create airflow as smaller tents can be hotter inside than the larger tents, so we added a rear door, aligned all three doors (inc door in annex walls) to a “U” shape making them much wider than the conventional “D” shaped doors this then allows hot air to pass through the tent. Similarly each window had to have a corresponding window to allow perfect air flow and keep the tent cool in summer. Finally we adopted all the strengthening and sewing methods used in our Adventurer tents. Two prototypes a green and a camouflage tent were both manufactured at the same time. The two prototypes then embarked on a ninety night, twenty thousand kilometre adventure around Australia being tested in all the various conditions. The testing proved an overwhelming success and production commenced.
