Bonetti Campers was established in 2012 by Stefano Bonetti. With his extensive knowledge as Master Mechanic in Switzerland working in different fields of automotive technologies, from cars, trucks buses, construction vehicles to recreational vehicles. Working on recreational vehicles begun when he moved away from Switzerland to California in 2006. This insight into the RV technologies of the US market opened up a way to Australia, where he worked for KEA Campers as National Fleet Operations Manager. After a short work assignment at KEA Campers in Namibia as General Manager, which gave him a great insight into the African RV market and off road conditions.
With all this knowledge Bonetti Campers started to build the Cruisinator 6×6, but after KEA closed its doors, Stefano was offered to buy the parts stock of KEA, which made Bonetti Camper as main suppliers for KEA Camper parts and most important factory trained knowledge.
Stefano’s passion for the open spaces of the Australian landscape and 4WD vehicles made to travel the world. Whilst he loved the KEA Conqueror which he redesigned the interior in 2008, he felt there can be much more achieved with a drastic design change to the better. In 2015, shortly after moving the business to the beautiful Sunshine Coast, he started to design the Cruisinator
The design specification had to cover following minimal achievements:
- Minimal modification to original vehicle roof, leaving the drivers cabin in original state
- Queen-sized bed
- Minimum of 10cm mattress thickness
- More storage
- Simple setup, by lifting the roof and that’s it.
- Custom fridge next to door, to allow easy access to stock and use fridge
- Spacious and useable cabinetry with safe locking handles
- Ability to install hot water system 14L
- Ability of fresh water tanks up to 100l
- Ability for grey water tank fitted
- Ability to fit almost any awning available
- Low centre of gravity
- Flat roof, insulated to allow stick on solar panels, height above bed 80cm
