Kriso,
If you want a top quality trailer under 10k, I reckon you should look at Tambo Campers in Wantirna, Melbourne. They advertise on this site. I am really happy with mine, as are my friends. They have great attention to detail and quality canvas work. I can assure you they are robust and strong.

However, there is no way i would get independent suspension. Trailer wheels don't drive, and you don't ride in it. Mostly though, it would be impossible to fix "on the road". I am happy with 6 leaf and rebound springs.
have fun
Ian

Sorry Ian,

I have idependant set up on my trailer and would not have it any other way. It is a very simple system with shocks and coils. After 35k of off road stuff I have replaced rubber shock bushes once. Nothing in the trailer has ever been broken, including fresh eggs bounced all over Aus.

If it ever did brake I can't see how it would be any harder to fix than leaf springs. But I did pay more than 10k and that was 8 years ago.

Thanks for your help, i am finding it very difficult to decide on what we should get, it seems that the ones under ten grand all come with the same sorta of stuff and around the same price its just which one to choose. i also would like a good convenient kitchen set up as we will be travelling for over 2 years so i want it to be easy. It doesn't make it easier that i live in NSW and i would prefer to see the campers in person and not in photos. :) Thanks again for the help and keep the tips coming.

Kanga Campers in Wadonga on the NSW/Vic boarder make a strong dus tproof camper with independent suspension. We have a trayback version and travelled for 12 months around the top without a problem. Great kitchen & simple to erect.
They make them to order.

Kriso,

Southern Cross Canvas do a good off-road camper, they are in Melbourne. You have choice of leaf or inderpendant for roughly the same cost, about $8,000 without a kitchen.
