A Legacy of Excellence

Before we embark on our journey with the Outbound Storm, it’s essential to understand the rich legacy behind the name. Outbound Campers has long been synonymous with quality, durability, and a relentless pursuit of innovation. With decades of experience in crafting superior caravans, they have established themselves as trailblazers in the industry. The Storm, born from this legacy of excellence, embodies the pinnacle of their achievements – an affirmation of their unwavering commitment to pushing boundaries and redefining the caravanning experience.

Innovative Slimline Foldout Bed

One of the most striking features of the Outbound Storm is its innovative slimline foldout bed – a true game-changer in the world of caravanning. Unlike traditional foldout beds, which can be cumbersome and space-consuming, the Storm’s bed unfolds with effortless ease, revealing a spacious and secure sleeping area. Solid walls and sides ensure maximum safety and comfort, while the ingenious design optimises space without compromising on luxury. Whether you’re seeking rest after a day of exploration or indulging in a lazy morning, the Storm’s foldout bed promises a restful retreat like no other.

Craftsmanship Beyond Compare

At the heart of the Outbound Storm lies a dedication to craftsmanship and attention to detail that sets it apart from the competition. Each component, meticulously engineered and flawlessly executed, reflects the passion and expertise of the artisans behind the creation. From the robust galvanised steel chassis to the Leicht fixed beam axle, every element is designed with precision to withstand the rigours of the road and provide unparalleled stability and reliability.

A Trailblazer in Lightweight Adventure

The Outbound Storm boldly ventures into uncharted territory as Outbound Campers’ premier lightweight 4-berth gravel road family caravan. With a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of 1400 kg, a tare weight of just 960 kg, and a payload capacity of 440 kg, the Storm strikes the perfect balance between agility and capability. What truly sets it apart, however, is its astonishingly low dry nose weight of only 60 kg – a confirmation of its lightweight design and unparalleled manoeuvrability.

Engineering Excellence and Unrivalled Durability

Created with precision and engineered for excellence, the Outbound Storm attests to Outbound Camper’s unwavering commitment to quality and craftsmanship. Boasting a galvanised steel chassis mounted to a Leicht, 1.5-tonne fixed beam axle with 8-blade leaf springs, the Storm delivers unmatched durability and stability on any terrain. For adventurers seeking enhanced performance, optional shock absorbers can be added to the axle, providing a smoother ride and greater peace of mind. With mounting points already installed and a certified coupler rated up to 2 tonnes, the Storm is engineered to tackle the toughest challenges with confidence and ease.

Compact Yet Spacious

Despite its compact dimensions, the Outbound Storm offers a surprisingly spacious interior that maximises comfort and functionality. Measuring 4.4 meters in length, including the A-frame, 2.1 meters in width, and 2190mm in height when closed, the Storm defies expectations with its thoughtful layout and intelligent design. Whether you’re lounging in the comfortable dinette area or enjoying a restful night’s sleep in the spacious foldout bed, the Storm provides the perfect retreat after a day of exploration and adventure.

Gravel Road and Off-Road Capability

True adventurers know that the road less travelled often leads to the most unforgettable experiences. Given South African road conditions and the road conditions across our borders, it’s no surprise why so many new and experienced caravanners are choosing gravel road caravans as their go-to suspension.

Of course, should you prefer to venture completely off the beaten track, we advise would-be outbound storm owners to opt for an off-road upgrade, which includes heavy-duty shocks for excellent off-road manoeuvrability and stability. Owing to the clever design, the mounting points are already there! The galvanised steel chassis and Leicht fixed-beam axle provide excellent strength and durability, plus the curved front of the caravan is aerodynamic, which means it is exceptionally easy to tow.

Comprehensive Standard Features

Every aspect of the Outbound Storm has been meticulously designed to improve your outdoor experience. From the moment you set foot inside, you’ll be greeted by a host of standard features that take comfort and convenience to new heights. LED lights illuminate the interior, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere, while the two-plate gas burner stove lets you whip up delicious meals with ease. The split pantry hatch provides ample storage for all your essentials, ensuring that nothing stands between you and your next adventure.

Tailored Options for Every Adventure

While the standard features of the Outbound Storm are impressive on their own, Outbound Campers understands that every adventurer has unique needs and preferences. That’s why they offer a wide range of optional extras, allowing you to customise your Storm to suit your style and requirements. Whether you need an awning for additional shade, a shower for refreshing post-adventure cleanses, or a solar panel for off-grid power, the Storm has you covered. With options for everything from kitchen upgrades to entertainment systems, you can tailor your caravan to create the ultimate home away from home.

Unrivalled Comfort and Convenience

Step inside the Outbound Storm, and you’ll discover a world of comfort and convenience that surpasses all expectations. The spacious interior provides ample room for relaxation, with plush seating and high-quality finishes that exude luxury at every turn. The easy lift pop-up hinged roof offers excellent ventilation and plenty of headroom for even the tallest adventurers, while the rooftop sides are fitted with mosquito netting to keep unwanted guests at bay. With 27 internal storage hatches, including hanging cupboards and cavities, you’ll never have to sacrifice style for storage again.

Superior Safety and Security

When it comes to exploring the great outdoors, safety is paramount. That’s why the Outbound Storm is equipped with a range of features designed to keep you and your loved ones safe and secure on the road. The solid walls and sides of the slimline foldout bed provide added protection and peace of mind, while the lockable glass window ensures privacy and security. With its larger entry door for easy access and a sealed rear for optional accessories like bike racks and showers, the Storm puts your safety first, so you can focus on what truly matters – making memories that last a lifetime.

The Outbound Storm is a welcomed addition to the caravanning industry! The price tag is the only aspect that is more impressive than its design.

This is the perfect upgrade option for customers who have previously enjoyed rooftop tents, teardrop caravans, and small, lightweight camping trailers. The upgrade cost is exceptionally marginal compared to other leisure vehicles within its price range and product offerings.

Remember, this is a caravan (with four fixed walls and a non-canvas roof) and not a camping trailer (traditionally with canvas walls and ceiling). This means you can use and enjoy this caravan in winter and summer. The four fixed walls keep you insulated and warm during chilly winter nights. Unlike many canvas camping trailers, it can be utilised throughout the year in most climates.

Another notable feature is the slimline foldout bed, boasting generous height from your pillow to the foldout ceiling, unlike traditional foldout beds that feel like sleeping in a crematorium chamber. The main bed is comfortable, spacious, and 100% secure – again, unlike other canvas foldout beds, which pose a pest and security threat while you sleep. The window of the foldout bed section on the Storm can be locked, closed, or opened depending on your comfort level. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about someone unzipping your canvas-sleeping window in the middle of the night.

With the addition of the slimline foldout bed and the generous interior space available inside the Storm caravan, couples, families, and pensioners can all enjoy this leisure vehicle. It is perfectly poised for adventures, whether travelling with grandkids or alone. There is plenty of sleeping space available for up to four adults! This means you can take a family of four anywhere in Africa by converting the internal dinette into an additional sleeping area. Alternatively, you can reserve the dinette for you and your spouse if you prefer to eat your meals inside your caravan, away from the mosquitoes.

We’re willing to bet that you could not find an alternative four-berth gravel road caravan of this size, quality, and offering anywhere in Africa for under R500,000 as a minimum! This caravan retails under R380,000, including your 12v/220v 154L fridge/freezer, Victron innovative changer, and 105ah battery. It’s a fantastic offering and many experienced campers know it!

Also, remember that this caravan is a gravel road caravan that can be upgraded to off-road. Unlike conventional on-road caravans, it can be used to venture down to the coast as well as make many inland excursions across our borders, such as the Kgalagadi, Kruger National Park, Namibia, and Botswana.

Another benefit of this caravan is the aluminium sides, which are 100% sealed from the roof to the floor. Unlike traditional fibreglass caravans that can suffer from water ingress at their join points. Not to mention the wood rot and other problems when using your on-road caravan on corrugated gravel roads.

Many new caravanners wanting to upgrade from small camping trailers and confined rooftop tents to caravans would choose this model and design. Similarly, more prominent on-road caravan owners who no longer camp with children or grandchildren would consider this offering as the Storm is smaller, lighter, and much more cost-effective to tow.

In summary, we all share the ideal dream of caravanning. Waking up to the sounds of nature, wholly immersed in scenic beauty either by the coastal seaside or game reserve amongst our country’s big five, getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life and living.

We were not put on this earth to work until the day we drop. Remember, we are in Africa, after all. And we encourage everyone to embrace our heritage and explore as much as possible before your time is up. For us, it is the key to enjoying life to the fullest. And, with a caravan offering such as the Storm, it is absolutely possible and affordable, which means your dream is much closer than you think.

Keep reading below for a full spec sheet on the Outbound Storm’s standard features and optional extras. We have provided an enquiry form to enquire about ordering one for yourself and if you are considering trading in your older camping trailer or caravan for this upgrade. You certainly won’t regret it!

Remember, it is backed by one of Gauteng’s largest and oldest dealerships with over 20 years of experience. Kempton Caravans is exceedingly well known within our fraternity for providing excellent service and quality products with great rates of remuneration for your pre-loved trade-ins.
