Hi, we have had our Walkabout for almost 2 years and bought it s/hand. It is one of the larger ones and we are very happy with it. It has a pull out kitchen and is a off road model. We completed our first outback trip last year towing with a dual cab Rodeo and never encountered any towing problems in fact we really didn't know it was on behind, it is well balanced. We travelled Mereenie Loop, Palm Valley, Andado track to Mt Dare & Dalhousie, then down to Arkaroola in the Flinders. Where ever the Rodeo went the trailer went too! We did have some dust problems but have since sealed around the door better, we have added water tanks and batteries to be self sufficient. I think you will be a very happy camper!
Good luck.

2 hoots!

Dear allaussie
I bought a second-hand 2 yr old Walkabout light off road camper in March after lot's of reseach and an intention to buy a new Tambo Cooper. Stumbled across the ad for the Walkabout and changed my mind after inspection simply because the price was just too good to pass up. Not an easy decision because of the rave reviews and obvious quality of the Tambo product . Being a light off-road the trailer is a lighter spec than the Tambo however is still very sturdy and well suited to out needs. The tent canvas is of terrific quality and very well put togetherwith an excellent tent design, loads of windows, quality seams and zips awning etc. Had the tailgate modified to suit a kitchen I've built and installed. First use was at Cohuna over Easter and just returned from a weekend at Blanket Bay Cape Otway. All works brilliantly and can't wait until the next escape. Intend to add a 12 volt system and few other goodies in due course. Overall happy to recommend this product.
