    Re: Extension to towbar

  3. Re: Steel bash plate vs aluminium bash plate

    You guys have covered much of this topic. If I may add my 2 cents.

    If you're concerned about cracking on aluminium, just use a slower bend (bigger radius). The inability to bend the 6mm aluminium...

    Re: Metalian Maxi super thread

    Hi

    Would you suggest any changes on suspension ? Rather want to ensure I do all the right things upfront. This trailer will only be used for overlanding into Africa. Not for weekend camping...

    You have one of the 20 trailers with the super deep paneled drawer which was discontinued in 2011. An idea would be to fit longer slides and use the extra fridge extension to accommodate a bar...

    Re: Wire tying tool

    Nice tool and I've noted you pinched the front down better than the other tools to get a sharp radius. Tks for this post. I learnt something today.

    Re: Nose weight.

    The static tow-ball weights are a "catchall" scenario. The problem is with dynamic loads and this depends on draw-bar length, center of gravity in the trailer and the terrain you're traversing. It's...
