Multi Award winning Fremantle camper startup Cool Beans has taken the curvy teardrop trailer to a new level with a warm two-person cabin, gourmet galley, smartphone monitoring, and plenty of storage. Company owners Josh McLernon and Wade Ellis have created a bright funky teardrop with reverse D-shaped doors with tinted glass porthole windows and double dust and weather seals.
They spent three years developing the campers. A lot of people don’t have room to store their caravans any more, and they don’t want to be towing these big vans all around the place, Mr McLernon said. Towing is a breeze with the Cool Beans no pop- up/pop-down, no messing around, just hook up, head out and get after your adventures.
Our campers cool shape and design not only look fantastic but also makes them super economical and easy to tow. The plywood and aluminium body sits on a heavy-duty, fully welded Australian-made steel chassis with leaf-spring suspension and mechanical brakes. Underneath are 2 X 50litre 1x fresh and 1x waste water tanks. It has a ventilated, insulated roof with skylight and the fittings and hardware are marine-grade stainless steel. The rear kitchen includes all the top of the range appliances Like and Large Engle Platinum 60 litre, fridge, Marine Grade stainless sink, two-burner cooktop running off a, LED lighting, Multiple USB and 12V charging points for smart phones and Laptop etc, 1500mm benchtop and loads of storage drawers. Inside is a queen-size bed with built-in stitched padded headrest, with storage in three cupboards and three drawers and overhead and reading lights. The campers come with a 12V/240V power system, including AGM battery and solar and Anderson plug connections contained within a drawbar-mounted aluminium box, that can be monitored remotely via a smartphone app. People who would like a little more space can add a 3m x 4m Awning.
