    Re: Metalian Maxi or ???

    Agree none - my Maxi has served me well over the years.

    I really don't think you will find a better designed and affordable trailer that comes close to the Metalian range.

    Re: Pitching of a TTT - gas strut supports?

    It was custom made by Christies Sports - to fit a king size mattress on top and it has a larger "tent area" at the bottom.

    I have a HUGE TTT on top of my Metalian Maxi.

    Re: Definitive SA bush camp list

    Was there During December 2018. Lovely campsite.

    4x4 not needed but a high clearance vehicle a must.
    4x4 needed if you pull anything.
    The road towards the campsite is narrow and very steep.

    Yes, and won't be going back soon.

    We went over a weekend and people in the "rondavels" were playing LOUD music until very late.
