Tucson T4R said:It looks interesting but I couldn't tell what the specific suspension design was. You really want an independant suspension if possible. The other challenge I found when looking at off road camping trailers from South Africa or Austrailia was the 240V electrical systems. Significant redesign and fitting is required to switch to the US 110V system.
The two companies I found that have taken care of that challenge and are importing US version are Safari Trailers and King Kampers.
I personaly own one of the King Kamper trailers and love it. One other advantage of these trailers is that they close up to a low profile with less wind drag than the one you linked to. Check em out and see what you think.
I have a lot more info and pictures of the King kamper if you are interested.
Just my two cents worth.

While Safaritrailers.com is alive and well the company went out of business about 4 years ago. Around that time the US Dollar weakened against foreign currency and basically doubled the price of imported trailers overnight. This has been an on going issue for importers but has been a boon for people like us who export.
The major issues with importing trailer are that they must meet DOT and NHTSA regulations to be sold here. Individuals can not import their own trailers unless they go through a Registered Importer and there are only about 3 companies who deal with trailers and they deal exclusively with big rigs.
King Kamper and Campa USA are the only two who import and have stock of foreign made trailers as far as I know. There are a couple of other "companies" who will arrange for a trailer to be shipped to the USA for you, best be careful when dealing with them, if they are not recognized by the DOT and NHTSA the imported trailer is subject to re export or destruction.
