    You should also look at the Offtrax Outplay trailer. There is a thread here Offtrax trailer fan club. See also their website.

    I think if any one should consider buying a trailer these days , ask the question who offers the best after sales service in the end of the day nothing worse spending all the money and if it requires assistance the there are heaps of excuses.
    Also important make sure the trailer you want suits your needs go though all of them spend time before making a decision, they are all good but it might be that one thing you need the others don't have. Happy shopping

    Look at the disselboom. Will it take a loaded trailer and rough roads.
    Look at the wheel bearings. Do you have a safety factor.
    Look at the brakes. Are they overrrated.

    As with most cases these days companies are more considered about landing the sale and making promises to keep the cash flow going. If you decide to purchase a Wildebeest make sure you have a back up plan to service and maintain your new purchase as aftercare at Wildebeest is non existing.

    I've had my Wildebeest for +- 6 years and decided that it's time for a bearing service and a bid of maintenance it took them two weeks, the bearing service was not done the way I requested and as for maintenance of the rest well I got my trailer back exactly the way the day I dropped it of. They did not even bother to clean it.

    There is allot of trailer brands out there go with the brand that will go the extra mile afterwards, it makes a hell of a difference!

    Also ensure that the axle is strong enough. At least 1,8 tonne or more.
