    In summary the new Pilbara pop-top is built tough for serious off-road expeditions.  The Pilbara is the latest in versatility fitting in nicely between the 4.2 to 4.7m Kimberley and the 4.8 to 6.4m Tanami. The Pilbara is available in lengths from 3.8 to 6.1m in a pop-top or as a full height caravan. Thermally more efficient than our other models, the Pilbara is made from the  same compressed fibreglass panels (CFP) as the Tanami, which are 20 per cent thicker than other wall structures.

    The design of the latest Pilbara is aimed at appealing to a younger market with its bold graphics and tough styling.  However, please note these graphics are available in a range of colours to satisfy all our buyers.  The Pilbara provides adequate storage for its size and you can even throw in the Webber Baby Q!

    Trakmaster’s first Pilbara buyers have had it built as a full height caravan. The Pilbara off-roader was released in pop-top prototype form at the the Melbourne Leisurefest last October, but it looks like proving more popular as a full-height caravan. Thus, is the flexibility at Trakmaster, with the Pilbara now available in both forms. Even, the floorplan can be determined by you, making this model the most popular of the nine available in the Trakmaster range.

    Extra water tanks, solar panels, deep cycle batteries, Webasto diesel heating and larger Dometic compressor fridge/freezer are all optional extras that can be accommodated in the Pilbara.

    Take a look at the full article which details the options one buyer sort for their Pilbara off-roader.

    Introducing the all new Pilbara combining the best features of the Gibson pop-top and the much larger top of the range Tanami, giving the Pilbara serious off-road capabilities, and the space to include the comforts of a combined shower-toilet ensuite. You have the choice of a Pilbara pop-top or a full height Pilbara caravan with single or tandem axles and internal body lengths from 4.7m to 5.0m.

    The Pilbara is your true off-road van sporting tough new looks, resembling those of a Tonka Toy which we believe will appeal to our younger market. The Pilbara has an enormous ground clearance which is reassuring for those of you planning to venture into remote parts of the country, keeping all your “unders” such as pesky gas pipes, water tanks and wiring out of harms way.

    Airbag suspension is available on the Pilbara, however the most popular option with buyers is the Sugarglide trailing arm suspension featuring 150mm coil springs and large bore (40mm) single shock absorbers. This results in less stress on your van over rough terrain and is in turn passed onto the tow car.
