So.. What is a Fly Outrigger?

The outrigger system is made up of 4x custom made flanged rod holders that attach to the roof of the camper, so when the roof flips open the flanges are ready to hold 4x flexible metal rods.

Once open this system is designed to tension the Trayon Camper Fly allowing you to have the fifth bed window open for airflow in the canvas canopy.

Not one Trayon is used the same as the next, they are used in a wide range of terrains, from Canadian Rockies in the snow, the tropics of northern QLD to the Simpson desert, Africa and everywhere in between.

Every customer requires different features and functions to suit their camping application.

Trayon has used the same tried and tested platform since 1994 with a few modern enhancements. Much of our research and development has gone into accessories and features that last as long as our campers do and stand up to the rigours of the Australian Outback.

Trayon’s commitment to continuous improvement has led to the development of the Camper Fly Outriggers over several iterations. Meticulously tested in Australia’s toughest conditions with our test fleet, these Outriggers are not just an accessory but a necessity for any camper facing unpredictable weather.

They have been refined to deliver unmatched performance in a broad range of environments and weather conditions.

Design Evolution of Camper Fly Outriggers:

  • Field-Tested: Each design has been put through the rigours of the Australian climate;
  • Iterative Improvement: The current design is the result of multiple refinements;
  • Proven Durability: Withstands heavy rain and the diverse conditions of Australia.

Features of the Outriggers

The Camper Fly Outriggers are an innovation that revolutionises how campers enjoy their Trayon. By extending the camper’s functionality, they provide a dual advantage of increased airflow and additional protection from the elements.

Features of Camper Fly Outriggers:

  • Enhanced Ventilation: Allows airflow without letting rain in;
  • Easy Installation: Custom-made flanged rod holders make setup a breeze;
  • Robust Materials: Durable metal rods tension and secure the camper fly out.

A Breath of Fresh Air – Open Your Window

No one likes a humid steamy tent when it is raining cats and dogs outside.

These Outriggers ingeniously enable the bed window to remain open during rain, facilitating airflow while keeping the interior dry. They represent a thoughtful design response to Australia’s unpredictable weather patterns to help enhance your night’s sleep.

Retrofit Camper Outriggers:

Owners of existing Trayon Campers will enjoy the fact that the Camper Fly Outriggers are not just for new models. These accessories are designed to retrofit seamlessly, adding value and functionality to their current setup.

  • Customer Support: Trayon’s team is ready to help if you encounter any issues.

Secure Your Camper Fly: Utilising Anti-Flap System

To ensure the Outriggers remain stable, Trayon recommends the use of an anti-flap system built into the Camper Fly and the purchase of a shock cord system. This can be purchased directly from approved vendors or Trayon itself. You can purchase the Tarp Tie 4 Pack from The Original Shock Loc.

This will allow you to tie your camper fly down to the metal ring loops provided which will just help stop any flapping when the wind wants to get a flap going.

It is important not to over tighten these cords as they will put too much pressure on the fly and damage it, only light pressure at the edge of the fly where the cords attach are slightly angled down and is enough to stop it from flapping.
