In 2011 Bruce was looking to extend his families camping experiences. Having used tents and rooftops extensively for some years he was on the hunt for a better experience.
"It's a simple story really, The family was growing, I had bikes and bedding on the roof, the fridge and food in the cabin plus everything else to make a two day break or a two week trip enjoyable. It became bloody hard work setting and dismantling camp every time we wanted to move on. So I began wading through camper trailer websites, magazines, I went to a few shows and visited factories. After several months I'd only found a handful of manufactures out of the hundreds across Australia and overseas that were anywhere close to my needs and all were out of my budget. A South African web forum led me to some really interesting manufactures and It was there that I stumbled across Mission Trailers. I took a punt and the rest as they say is history.”
