Ute Mate was developed by long time campers, Terry and Wendy Coad of Mackay, Queensland. Terry’s trade as a cabinetmaker and also an inventor helped create the original Ute Mate Slide-On Camper that was designed and built to suit a personal need for quick easy camping in style, that also worked as a Tradies Toolbox.
Creating interest wherever they camp led Terry and Wendy to begin the manufacture and marketing of the Ute Mate in various models to suit a range of needs and budgets.
Now a few years and many Ute Mates later we have lots of satisfied customers living the dream and travelling far and wide across Australia with their Ute Mate. Ute Mate is made completely in Mackay, Queensland, employing local tradesmen.
