  1. Re: Bundutec RTT and Awning onto Metalian Maxi challenge

    Patriot offset their tent because the awning is fitted on top of the trailer, they don't have the space on the side like we do, because they build wider over the mudguards. We don't offset our tent...

    Damn, I've uploaded it but can't find the link. Anyone see this please post the link here.
  3. Re: Bundutec RTT and Awning onto Metalian Maxi challenge

    I'm uploading the video to youtube. Stand by. The issue becomes self-explanatory. Apologies for the incorrect reference to the awning being offset when I mean to say the tent.

    You guys were very quiet in the lead up - you had me worried. Thought maybe I was designing a trailer for 3 guys only :o.

    295mm with 14's. If you need to squeeze a bit more, a higher profile tyre or a 15 inch can get you another 30 mm before we need to do some engineering change. 295mm is higher than most SUV's though.

    Re: Metalian Genie Launch special

    The problem is the trailer is so light that when you try to push the door closed, it moved out of the way, besides as Apocalypse said, anti-luse's are not Metalian style.

    24 hours to go gents.

    Yes, we could make this fit a 60 litre National Luna fridge. The weight may shift quite a lot on such a small and light trailer - take care to counterbalance the weight a bit.

    Re: Metalian Basic Prototype trailer

    No shocks and there is no place to fit shocks. It is leaf sprung and the weight variance will not be as much as on the trailers with a GVM of 1600kgs.

    Re: homemade bending dies.

    The great point about an internal spring is that when you pull on it, the diameter shrinks and it loosens. You can also rotate the end of the spring and wind it up, which also decreases the diameter....
