Funny got stuck on a tight spot on the other day while returning home from camping with my son and first thing he said was to ring Justin to come and help us. He’s obsessed with PC family and I’ve got to say that so do I. I have named my X3 ” Noah’s arc ” to honour his name and the joy he has every single time. Buying an X3 its like buying a piece of happiness.
Our X1n means we can go anywhere, anytime, easily and comfortably. How has it evolved things you ask? Well, we have a heap of water, loads of storage and a kitchen that functions better than the one I have at home. Anywhere the car can go our house can go. Living out of the X1n full time next year with a family of four and stoked about it!
Starting with my family when I was young, then being involved with scouts growing up, I have always enjoyed camping. Even if it was bucketing down rain and the tent was flapping around in the wind like a tissue in a cyclone, we always had a laugh and enjoyed the fresh air and peace and quiet of the great aussie outdoors, even when the ground was lumpy and uneven, spiky or soaking wet. A weekend away would normally involve snags on the Friday night, as they would keep fresh enough from the trip to camp on foot or in the sedan, some dehydrated meal like noodles on Saturday and we’d all be starving for a proper meal on Sunday night arriving home. Dessert was either lollies, some chocolate or maybe some marshmallows burnt to a fiery end on the campfire;but almost definitely a tube of condensed milk. Scout trips would always involve a long hot walk with a heavy backpack down a dodgey national park track to the campsite after being dropped off in the carpark, because that’s what scouts do, they walk to hard bit. A family trip would be the Toyota Corolla filled to the tops of the windows with camping gear and my brother and I tetris’d somewhere between a tent, sleeping bag and a gas bottle. These days my wife and I enjoy a king bed, floating on air, that is always level. We have a couple of personal fans if its a little warm and we want to stay comfortable through the night. A pitch black canvas tent, which is heaven for endless dry sleep-ins. 3 course meals, bakery fresh pastries for breakfast on the weber, chilled wine with dinner and all this for days of even weeks on end. I even have ice for my whisky at the end of a night by the fire. Fresh water showers to wash off the dust of the days outback journeys, and the privacy and cleanliness of our own private ensuite. Our X1 is 100% a camping evolution. We still enjoy the amazing history, endless landscapes and surprises Australia has to offer around every corner, we just do it in style and comfort now.
So if you don’t already know i bought a patriot x1h to use as a mobile vaccination hub that I have been utilising to help vaccinate our vulnerable and rough sleepers on the Gold Coast. (note it says the trailer is owned by a charity, but it’s not. It’s owned by me) I absolutely love it. You can see a picture in the gc bulletin. I’m still hanging to take it camping and maybe even do some medical rural outreach work. Thanks guys. Ps… If u want to send me any merch to help with storage etc or sleeping bags that I could eventually use for camping with the family would be awesome 👌
Our X2 has tackled absolutely everything, we trust in the brand and the testing Justin does we these trailers. The reliably is incredible and we travel proudly with the patriot in tow.
The stress of planning, packing and squeezing all of the camping gear into an overloaded car in the lead up to a trip has been replaced by the incredible ease of hitching the ready to go anytime X1 Patriot Camper to the car and hitting the road. Being so compact you hardly even notice the X1 attached to the car when towing. The X1 has evolved our camping with young kids back into the relaxing adventures that it should be. We couldn’t be without our X1 Patriot Camper.
We can dare to get out further and enjoy ourselves more. The comfort of the X1 and all the functionality it has makes camping an experience we never thought we could have. From making that fresh brew of coffee when we wake up, to hanging out with the kids in their tent reading books before they go to sleep. Everything in between is a breeze and so much more enjoyable
We love our X3, thanks to its simplicity and comfort we can share great memories with our family and friends. The outside kitchen is a central point for socialising and sharing a meal, while the dual access interior means we don’t disturb each other at night. Plus the awesome electronics have allowed us to charge up our stealth Electric bike without a generator. Our Patriot has allowed us to explore further!! Even through diesel and dust
My trailer has allowed me to have the perfect surfing camp trips. This trailer is the perfect size, stops me from trying to take too much stuff I don’t need & more than enough room for things I do need! I was so stocked my X1N had all the extras to make life easy like to attachment for filling up water tanks & outdoor tap shower hose/fittings to wash the salt off after a surf. Don’t even start me on the Weber Q- bacon, egg & avo wraps after a Morning surf using the swing away arm- not uppacking or packing up- you’ve made camping no longer overwhelming!
We can go to any destination that our 4 WD can go and not have all the camping gear squashed in the back -the camper has barely left the towball since we got it!
I use to camp a lot when I was younger , now married with a teenager my wife was always a hotel with room service type. I wanted to slowly get back into the outdoors but needed a set-up that was convenient, had everything and was comfortable something that I could ease my wife into so she enjoyed he experience and hopefully enjoy to make a regular adventure to do together as a family… after buying our camper and getting everything right for us my wife loves getting out she now books a monthly weekend trip and we both couldn’t be happier love our 2016 X1
Owning our X3 has allowed us the freedom to camp in some remarkable places, off the grid and away from anybody else. Camping in places like the shores of Lake Eyre , Lake Gairner & the Nullarbor have been amazing.
Our PC has allowed our family to get away from crowded private and provincial campsites, and explore the wilderness. British Columbia is blessed with thousands of acres of mountainous back country filled with lakes and streams. Anywhere we can get the Jeep, our PC follows. This picture is one of our favorite spots, on Harrison Lake, BC, Canada. Several Kms up a service road, and 4×4 only trail access down to the lake. No RV’s here. Because of the difficulty accessing this area, we often have the place to ourselves. camping and cooking lakeside, and yet only 3 hours from Vancouver! We love finding spots to set up our Patriot that puts us as close to the water as possible. this allows us to beach our boat, right beside our campsite. can beat it!
It’s funny how when you are young you think you know it all and your views will never change, that was me. Adamant that I would never tow a trailer off road, why would I when I own a ute and can pack it all on the back? However, after the first trip in the Patriot Campers X1-N I had pretty much thrown that standpoint out the window. The X1-N being lightweight with good articulation plus not wider than my vehicle meant it has never held me back off road. I am still able to tow comfortably on sand and through tight or rutted tracks. As life progresses, it gets busier, my partner and I have limited spare time so having the X1-N with its incredible amount of storage has meant we can leave the trailer packed ready to go, we get to camp quicker, the setup is quicker resulting in more time for actually making memories and enjoying the stuff that matters. The X1-N has completely changed the way I view travel and off-roading, I don’t think I could go back.
Hi, we’re Grant, Alicia & Julsi, also known as Six Overland.
We purchased and picked up our Patriot Campers X1-H late June of 2019 and have been exploring with it ever since. It took us about two years to make the decision to buy a Patriot Camper, and once the X1-H became available, we knew it was the camper for us. One factor in our decision was that the X1-H offers a versatility that fits our family’s needs. We can deploy the hardtop tent for quick stops, set up the changing room for longer stays or when privacy is needed, or add the kids’ room when we have a bigger group camping with us. Eventually, when our daughter is older, it will serve as her room, and is even big enough to accommodate a sleepover with friends! It is truly a family camper.
In addition, the Patriot Campers X1-H is built for overland travel. We have taken it through some pretty serious terrain, and with its low center of gravity, we have been able to take lines and trails that most other overland trailer owners wouldn’t even consider. Its capabilities continue to surprise us every time. This little “mountain goat” of a camper, as my wife calls it, has given us the opportunity to get into nature to explore, decompress, and disconnect. Life can get incredibly overwhelming at times, so to have the ability to leave everything behind and get away for a while is imperative for regrouping and recentering on what is truly important: family. We’re proud to be Patriot Camper owners and honored to be a part of the Patriot Ambassador team. We hope you enjoy following along on our family adventures and to see how we use our Patriot Campers X1-H. We’re just getting started, and our journey has just begun!
