Since opening for business in 2011 Conqueror Northgate has become the place to go for off-road caravans and camping trailers and is one of the leading Conqueror dealers in the country. The store is owner managed by Vivian Torlage who has a passion for camping and adventure travel.
Our technical, sales and support teams are dedicated to providing you with superior service, expert advice and to assist you with all your caravan and camping trailer needs.
Our experience with stainless steel in the past has shown that this material is not the ideal material for the building of campers and trailers as it is still susceptible to corrosion. It is for this reason that we have elected to follow motor industry trends using electrogalvanized steel for all our chassis and core body frames. Aluminium is used in the construction of doors and furniture to reduce weight and all our tents are made from coated ripstop canvas, while nylon or less durable materials are avoided.
Chassis are manufactured from 3mm steel using NC machines for accuracy. Welding on the chassis is kept to a minimum through the manufacture of smaller components that are bolted together which in turn significantly reduces metal fatigue and stress concentrated areas on the chassis. An added benefit of this techniques is easier component replacement in case of damage. Once assembled the chassis is hot dipped galvanised for added corrosion protection.
Axle and wheels
Solid beam, braked axles are used in the trailers while a patented independent suspension with stabilizers are used in our caravans. All our campers are equipped with 16” wheels with options to upgrade to alloy rims. Benefits of an independent suspension over conventional solid beam axles include improved handling both on- and off-road, improved axle articulation over obstacles, increased ride heights and superior ride quality. The independent suspension offers a softer ride which translates into a better towing experience especially on dirt roads and corrugation.
Body components are manufactured using a combination of electro galvanized steel and aluminium which is punched using NC Machines for accuracy and then powder coated. Benefits of powder coating over other finishes are a higher degree of resistance to scratches, chipping, wear and fade. All parts are of a modular design allowing for easy panel replacements in case of an accident. The body is assembled using a range of high-quality fasteners and a high modulus polyurethane glue which reduces metal fatigue, corrosion and provides a more durable longer lasting camper. Recently Conqueror also introduced a revolutionary material in the construction of its new range of campers which significantly reduces weight.
All models can be equipped with a purpose made range of tents, awnings and accessories. Our awnings are recognized as the best designed and of highest quality in the industry. Provision for most accessories and add-ons are made during the design process. Anchor points, mounting holes and routings are thus part of the basic camper allowing for easier equipment installation at any stage.
