Hello everyone, My partner and myself enjoy touring the out back camping & fishing and need more storage space. So we have come to the conclusion we need a trailer. Only problem being we are not sure weather to buy a "4WD Camper Trailer" purpose built or a "4WD box trailer" and set it up ourself as required. Our trecks can last up to 2+ weeks. If anyone can has either of the above we would love to hear from you.
ohh our budget is aprox $ 6000.00

Julian, You should get plenty of advise on this issue, but I'll tell you what we did! - Two adults and Two children(now 10 & 12) never had enough room in the 4WD (currently Patrol and previous Pajero & Landcruiser) so we had built for us a OFFROAD trailer and seeing as we travel up to 4 weeks in any one time and wanted to be able to ditch the trailer, so we made a 7' x 4' x 20" sided trailer with a swinging rear tailgate that has a lowerable shelf to cook on, 365 degree swivel coupling, electric trailer brakes, extra long draw bar, super heavy duty axle/springs, offroad wheels and tyres that also suit our car, jerry can/gas bottle holders on exterior, tool box, spare wheel holder and torneau cover. When we want to do a 1/2 day side trip we take out all necessary gear and leave at caravan park or ditch in the bush schackled to a tree with a vital part missing. Good luck in making your decision, just make sure that everything is SUPER HEAVY DUTY!

Set up your own as above then if required you can add canvas later. It's a good cheap option ($2K should see you off the road) and you've always got a trailer to use at home also.
