Too right, Had one and loved it. They have a really great Boat rack that allows you to leave the boat on with the tent erected.

Depends whether you want a camper-trailer, box trailer or custom made fully enclosed trailer. I have an explorer butterfly top from O'briens and love it. There is a piccie in my Rig profile and some specs.

Last October I drove to Melbourne(the Big Smoke) to visit friends and to look for a 7x4 Offroad trailer. I visited at least 10 manufacturers(including O'Briens) and did not find one trailer under $3000, stock standard with ball hitch and jerry can holders. Not even a jockey wheel.

On my way home I called in at Adelaide and bought the same trailer at Modern Trailers for $1800. Heavy duty chequer plate Offroad with 16inch wheels and a jockey wheel.

If your trailer when loaded, is under 750kg in weight, you are not required to have brakes fitted.

Ring me as above to discuss. Water tank is removeable or just dont use it.Being plastic and mounted under trailer it is not heavy or in the way.
