Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT SORT OF SUSPENSION DOES THE CAMPER HAVE AND IS IT EASY TO USE?
The EXP-6 uses our own designed and built independent suspension system. Our suspension design is only available in conjunction with our chassis. The suspension has over 300mm of adjustment, double that of other air suspension systems, and the most wheel-travel on the market.
Using our app on a smartphone, the EXP-6 can be adjusted on the fly from the tow vehicle. Three presets are available: Setting 1 is “highway mode” Setting 2 is “off-road mode” and Setting 3 is “extreme height”. All these are easily calibrated, adjusted or altered to your requirements from your tow vehicle. You can also make minor adjustments within each setting with a simple up/down toggle when using the app. Physical up & down switches are also located on the EXP-6 trailer itself.
At rest the EXP-6 can level out uneven terrain. You can also lower the height to suit your needs making everything easy to reach regardless of your height. Our 4 airbags operate under very little air pressure, however each airbag is rated to be capable of holding the entire weight of the EXP-6 if required.
Our suspension is softer riding and more supple than any other design on the market. We achieve this through having greater wheel travel and through the use of our 8 vertically mounted shock absorbers. Perfectly tuned they allow for a full range of movement and control. In an emergency situation each air bag can also be blocked from the system and independently filled with air, just like a tyre on a vehicle.
HOW MANY PEOPLE DOES THE BRUDER EXP-6 SLEEP?
The Bruder EXP-6 can sleep six people. The main bed on the EXP-6 is a queen-size double mattress. The bed position means that you don’t have to climb over your partner to get into or out of bed.
For families, the lounge area converts into a bunk bed for two, a further two additional beds can also be mounted into the ceiling area giving the EXP-6 sleeping for six without intruding into the main walkway. There is also the option of a zip-on rear room that attaches to the rear of the EXP-6.
IS IT EASY TO TOW AND WHAT VEHICLE DO I NEED TO TOW IT?
Making camping and towing easy is what the EXP-6 does best, leaving you with more time to enjoy the experience. Whilst built to handle extreme off-road use, the EXP-6 design also allows it to perform outstandingly on-road. Much travel occurs on-road getting to places before the dirt roads begin. During these times the EXP-6 is far more streamlined and efficient to tow than other designs. With the press of a button (whilst on the fly) it will lower into highway position and sit tucked in behind your tow vehicle and comfortably cruise aerodynamically behind an SUV Audi as well as more common 4wds such as Landcruiser, Prado, Pajero, Ranger etc. Regardless of whether your vehicle is modified and lifted or not, the EXP-6 will be calibrated to suit it perfectly. And the fact you can select its ideal height from the comfort of your vehicle (without having to get out) makes it that much easier.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SETUP AND WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
All you need to do is press a button and the EXP-6 will do the rest. It will lower to your desired height, and the rear door electronically lifts and if you want over 7ft of headroom the roof also electronically lifts (just like a car window). The whole process takes only seconds and involves pressing a button on your phone (to alter suspension if you choose) and one button on the EXP-6 itself to raise the rear door. Likewise the external awning is remote controlled. We use only the most reliable electronic equipment built for the task.
HOW DOES THE AWNING WORK?
Everything on the EXP-6 is easy, so we continue this with the remotely controlled electronic awning. Quick and easy, it does all the hard work for you and covers a vast area to keep you protected from the sun or rain.
WHAT IS THE WATER CAPACITY OF THE BRUDER EXP-6 AND DOES IT HAVE HOT WATER?
The EXP-6 holds 200 liters of water and comes with the German built Webasto diesel hot water system to heat the water. You can access this hot water from multiple places, inside and outside, including the two showers.
DOES THE EXP-6 HANDLE HOT AND COLD CLIMATES OK?
Your camping enjoyment is paramount so the EXP-6 comes standard with an insulation R-value of over 5.1 keeping you cool in hot climates and warm in cold climates. We test and travel with the EXP-6 in Australia’s north during the wet season. Temperatures during this time climb to over 45c (113F) with monsoon rain and extreme humidity. The EXP-6 entire body roof is 30mm thick and this offers great insulation from the heat, it also has internal fans if you prefer to keep air movement without air conditioning. In below freezing environments the EXP-6 is also fitted with a heater system. The Webasto heater is adjustable to suit your requirements keeping you comfortable in icy conditions.
HAS THE CAMPER GOT BRAKES?
Yes, the EXP-6 has ventilated disc brakes on all four wheels. For international clients, brakes will be specific to suit your country’s legal requirements.
WHAT SIZE TYRES & RIMS ARE ON THE EXP-6?
Standard are 305/60/18 tyres with 5 stud alloy rims. We alter this to suit client requirements.
DO I HAVE TO MATCH THE EXP-6 WHEELS TO THE TOWING VEHICLE?
The standard wheel track and stud pattern of the EXP-6 is the same as the Toyota LandCruiser 200series. Some clients like the EXP-6 to be identical to the tow vehicle along with a matching stud pattern – we can cater for the vast majority of vehicles.
DO I NEED TO LIFT THE EXP-6 ROOF TO FIT INSIDE?
No, you don’t need to lift the roof, but if you’re tall the extra height is nice. It is extremely quick and easy as it electronically lifts and closes – just like a car window.
WHAT SORT OF COUPLING DOES THE EXP6 HAVE?
It has a McHitch. The coupling simply bolts into the same hole as a standard 50mm tow ball on the tow vehicle – other hitches are also available.
CAN THE BED BE LEFT MADE UP?
Yes of course, we want camping to be easy for you so the queen-sized innerspring mattress stays made. Nothing is difficult on the EXP-6 so camping is stress free and fun!
WHAT TYPE OF ELECTRICAL TRAILER PLUG DO I NEED ON MY VEHICLE?
The trailer comes standard with a large 7 pin round plug with a high current (50Amp) Andersen Plug used for charging from the tow vehicle to the EXP-6. When your tow vehicle is running the EXP-6 will be getting charged.
CAN WE USE SOLAR PANELS TO CHARGE THE BATTERY SYSTEM?
Yes, typically we fit the EXP-6 with 600W of solar power and between 300-600a/h of lithium battery power (other options available).
IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE JERRY CANS ON THE FRONT OF THE CAMPER?
Yes, four jerry cans can fit safely within the front storage area of the EXP-6. Alternatively external jerry can holders can be fitted.
HOW MANY FRIDGES DOES THE EXP-6 HAVE?
The EXP-6 can have two fridges fitted, one inside and one outside. Both have separate fridge/freezer sections.
IS THE EXP-6 GOOD IN DUSTY CONDTIONS?
The EXP-6 is fitted with a roof mounted carbon fibre snorkel. This pressurizes the interior and storage areas with clean filtered air. Our chassis design also separates from the body from the chassis with rubber body mounts – these isolate off-road vibrations and in conjunction with our suspension system mean the EXP-6 body and door openings doesn’t shake, rattle or flex like other off-road campers and caravans on rough dusty roads or tracks. With the very best in automotive seals, positive filtered air pressure, carefully considered door openings and our chassis and suspension design, we are confident the Bruder EXP-6 is the most dustproof camper available on the market.
DOES THE BRUDER EXP-6 HAVE 12 VOLT OUTLETS INTERNALLY & EXTERNALLY?
Yes, there are 12Volt outlets found throughout the EXP-6.
CAN I FIT A BOAT ON THE ROOF?
We recommend fitting a boat on the roof of the tow vehicle. We are keen fishermen ourselves, and we prefer to travel to and from the water with the vehicle – giving the option of leaving the trailer at camp. However we can fit certain boat types to the Bruder EXP-6.
DOES THE BRUDER EXP-6 HAVE GOOD LIGHTING INTERNALLY AND EXTERNALLY?
Absolutely. At night you have many options to suit your requirements – even mood lighting. Discreetly mounted LED lights are found throughout the interior and exterior including ground lighting that lights up low areas and doesn’t affect your night vision. The lights are also adjustable so you can choose to have low, medium and bright. The External LED lights cast a wide area around the EXP-6 but should you wish to explore away from camp it even comes with inbuilt LED torches.
