Camper FAQs

FAQs for the Bakewell Burner Camper

How does the aluminium handle the heat?

Our Campers are built using top marine grade 6mm alloy plate which has no concerns with the heat generated. There is no distortion from the heat.

How hot does the outer shell of the aluminium camper get?

Very hot, great for cooking on and keeping warm.

Does the fireplace generate good heating?

Your Camper will keep you very warm even in the coldest of places.

Will the aluminium Camper corrode?

Because the aluminium we use is the same as used for building a quality aluminium boat, it will handle coastal environments. Fresh rain water is good for keeping the aluminium clean. They do not corrode.

Is the fire easy to light?

Very easy, dry firewood is always best.

What type of cooking can be done on the Camper?

The Camper will allow you to cook with pots, pans, frying pans and camp ovens. You can also cook spuds wrapped in tin foil and marshmallows inside. And you can have your hot water available all the time in the attached water box.

What Maintence is required?

Due to the quality materials used, no real Maintence is required.

Is it easy to put together and dismantle?

Very easy and quick. Just be careful when dismantling to make sure it’s not too hot to handle. Being aluminium it will cool down a lot quicker than mild steel.

How quick does it take for the water to boil in the water box?

With the tank full and a good fire already going, it will take approximately 7min. When heating from starting a fire it will take approximately 15min, depending on the wood used and you fire starting skills.

What delivery time can we expect?

Approximately 1 week from confirmation of order. Due to large orders this can vary. Please Contact Us to confirm.
