Hi Brad,

To answer your query, could you please advise the following:

1. Which model are you talking about?
2. Is the trailer new or 2nd hand (how old)
3. How many people will use the trailer (ie is it for family use)

Thanks

They're a very good unit but also with quite limited internal storage capacity.
If you need to carry a lot of gear it has to be externally on the roof rack (floor when erected).

This means unloading it all when you pull up for the night. OK I guess for fixed camping, but could become tiresome if touring.

One of my bro's has a unit and they've very happy with it and we may have gone the same way, except for the storage issue.Fidei defensor

Towed a Campomatic Ranger M3 up the Canning, Gunbarrell all through the Kimberley & Simpson for 23,000ks and 3mths with out any real problems,tows well, excelent suspension and well balanced. Campomatic have a great back up service and the trailers hold there value extremely well.
Make sure you have the same size wheels on trailer as vehicle ,same axle width, Flush water tank well before starting off.
Campomatic trailer builders are one of the very few that will do alterations to there trailers if you don,t require any thing on the current plan or if you may want to make alterations.

Ave a great holiday Allan

My mate has just purchased a camp-o-matic and we took it away for a trial on the weekend.It was a good looking unit and very user friendly.
A fully galvanised chassie is the good thing which i am not sure if the others have.
Suspension set was excellent and it towed well even at 120 km/h
It was like going away in luxury instead of in the tent.
Running water, 4 burner stove,fishing rods,no wives and plent of beer.
Cheers
