Jon and the Burrell family own Tentworld which is a 3rd generation, family owned and operated national camping store chain with 14 retail stores Australia wide. They specialise in camping gear to suit all levels and styles of camping be it hiking, four wheel driving, car camping or glamping and more. Tentworld was established in 1968 in Toowoomba QLD which is where the head office and distribution centre operate from today.
They currently run two Hino 500 Series Standard Cab trucks - a 2013 FC 1022 and a 2016 FE 1426 which they got from Sci-Fleet Hino. They use Hino trucks to distribute camping gear between retail stores in SE QLD. They also use 3rd party carriers for interstate freight. Jon says he loves the economy they get out of the Hino trucks on the highway which they find very efficient.
“We have always found our Toyota’s both 4WD’s and forklifts to be reliable, well performing vehicles that are economic to run and easy to maintain, so when it came time to upgrade our van to a truck to help with increasing volumes, Hino was the obvious answer. We have not regretted this decision and when it came to needing more capacity, we went straight for another Hino.”
With the easing of travel restrictions due to COVID-19, there has been a rise in campers planning on taking their families out and delivering down to earth holiday experiences to their children whilst still maintaining social distancing.
“It's a lot of fun helping them choose their camping gear and getting them ready for their holiday adventure” Jon says.
