This is a bit biased as the manafacturer is a mate of mine. I have one of the early ones and am about to upgrade to a more frills model and it will another tru blu as I can't find better value for money. They are now making their own trailers which is what I know a bit about having been in the industry and what is the shiniest is not necessarily the best,and there are no short cuts taken here. Mine has done a lot of trips Gulf, Cape among a few and with no problems. Had a few minor problems with the canvas design and these have long been modified, and have better dust free covers.
The main thing I like is that it is totally free standing no poles or guide ropes, and pegs only if it gets a bit windy, we normally throw a bag in each corner for overnight stops and can be in bed in 2 minutes max. Also has plenty of windows with plenty of breeze when up north, a friend has another brand and his is stifling in the hotter climates no flow through.
Can't make any comment on the accessories available like slide out kitchens etc as mine is the basic but having seen them made they are very solid and know of no come backs.
Good luck with your choice.The Ghost

I know of 2 that have been taken back, one of which was mine! Both were so badly built & misrepresented that neither the other owner or myself could stand to keep them. He sold his unused, & I forced Tru Blu to take mine back, also unused. It took 7 months & a VCAT hearing to get them to accept it back. They are poorly built & dangerous!
I would be happy to discuss it with anybody that cares to email me ..... firstname.lastname@example.org
