Tru Blu Campers and Trailers closes, prompting ex-employees to start up on their own.
The local manufacturer with aluminium and steel expertise calls it quits after 17 years.

In a statement announcing Tru Blu’s closure on the company’s facebook page, former proprietors Maree and Tom thanked patrons for their on-going support and directed camper-related enquiries to their former employees’ start-up, based in Somerville, Vic.

"We have loved seeing the family pictures of the amazing holidays been shared in your camper trailers and have made some amazing friends over the years," the statement said.

Tru Blu Campers and Trailers produced ute backs, camper trailers and custom tradesman trailers, earning a dedicated following within the camping community for its Quail and Quail SS camper trailers featuring rear slide-out beds.

Lachlan and Jason, former employees and proprietors of the new company, Tru Blu Custom Fabrication, will leverage their combined 20 years of expertise in aluminium and steel fabrication in their new venture.
