Gday Friar,
I'm not familiar with that brand, but for that price u must be getting heaps of 'flash gears' on it .I went to a local trailer man, [who builds them for a reconised camping mob] Mine came out at about $7000, fully off road h/d springs etc. water tank, two spares, 2 bottles& 1 jerry. It was well built, & things were put where i wanted them. If you want more info. give me a hoi on 54399343.
they are at this w/ends show in Kawana, if u can get there
Cheers, Phil

I have a Trackabout Safari and so does my Brother in law. Took ours to the cape 2 years ago via the OTL. He rolled his getting around Gunshot Ck but it was not damaged. Very happy with off-road clearance and articulation.

I took mine all the way around Oz after the cape and lived out of it for 4 months with a wife and 9month old baby.

Very happy with the trailer. Easy to erect. Quality of canvas work is excellent compared to others. What I did find a little disappointing was the quality of the suspension components. My leaf springs lost their set, shackles and shackle bolts wore out quickly and I have the hubs develop fatigue cracks. However, Hank was pretty good at the after sales service and fixed a few items up for me after my trip at no cost. I believe he has uprated some of the componentry since. Trailer frame appears bulletproof.

We paid about $7K for ours
