The Camp King Difference!
Camp King prides itself on providing the highest quality products to those looking to tackle their biggest adventures.
The products that we build are Australian designed, tested and manufactured to ensure that they meet the requirements for the harshest environments around the world. Most importantly they are designed to ensure you are able to enjoy your adventures.
From Design to Delivery
To know what really makes a Camp King product tick, you have to start with what is at its core, the design. As the brainchild of Lucas Schubring, Lucas spends massive amounts of time selecting the right material, partner and manufacturing process for each of the products we sell.
Once on paper, Lucas works with a team to ensure each product is engineered to perfection before jumping in and building the first of many prototypes. Each of the prototypes is tested and modified on Lucas and Sarah’s own vehicles making sure that it lives up to their high expectations. If something fails, it is torn down and the process starts again.
By the time you are lucky enough to get your hands on your Camp King products, it has been carefully crafted by master tradespeople. Built to your specifications with your vehicle and requirements in mind with no doubt that it is anything but the best.
When you purchase a Camp King product, you are not just buying an off-the-shelf design and idea you are buying something that the founders, Lucas & Sarah, have put their heart and soul into, something that will stand the test of time and keep on standing.

“It was an absolute pleasure working with Camp King Industries with my Ultimate Amarok and Amarok Crew Car. They made an incredibly complex project really easy and came up with several brilliant and innovative ideas along the way.
The quality of the Camp King product and team, led by Sarah and Lucas, is outstanding. They are experts in their field and make superb quality, long-lasting products. As campers and four-wheel drivers, themselves, they understand what their customers need, and they deliver it. And on top of that, their trays, rooftop tents and canopies look damn awesome too! They are beautifully finished, and it’s all done right here in Australia. I can recommend Camp King Industries if you’re after a quality rooftop tent, tray, tub-topper or full custom canopy like me.”
Pat Callinan- Mr 4X4
“ We were so lucky to get some of their tents to Norway two years ago and we have been testing those under really arctic harsh conditions. Thumbs up with the whole products from design, details, functionality… perfection. It is probably the best tent in my eyes worldwide in the aluminium type”’
Carl Ronny Olsen – Arctic Exploration Overland
“Nearly 12 months’ in the making, I couldn’t be happier with my custom canopy from Camp King Industries.
Being a photographer who spends a lot of time in our great outback and remote regions, I needed a canopy of the highest quality, that not only suited my very specific requirements but was also fully sealed to keep the bulldust and water out.
There were many design changes and alterations during the process, all of which were never an issue for Lucas. My changes were always met with a smile, and I never felt like anything was too much trouble. That’s what customer service is all about.
The result: A canopy that perfectly suits my needs, built to the highest of quality that I am proud to have on the back of my ute…If you want a canopy that will surpass all of your expectations, see the team at Camp King industries.
You will not be disappointed’’
