    Just got home after spending night #101 (in 2 1/2 years - equates to one night for every 9 we spent at home!) in our wonderful Metalian Maxi! Just want to say thanks to Heinz and the rest of the crew at Metalian for allowing us the freedom to get away like this, and more importantly for the backup service - you guys really stand by your product!

    Has anyone attached a grab handle to the front of a Maxi to make maneuvering a little easier? If so please share the idea. Thanks

    Ours came with grab handles .... the rack above the nosecone. We just use that. I find making sure the trailer is level (or a little nose up) helps with the push-pull activities.

    You could also affix a 17 year old teen to one side of the trailer and you won't even have to push or pull - just don't let him see you standing around pretending to work.

    Congrats! The waiting is terrible. But definitely worth the while. Photos when she arrives.

    Thanks all,

    as my son was born last Thursday (my twin girls aged 3 are over the moon) I have enough things to keep my mind occupied until the trailer is ready... oh ja, and I decided that doing a PDBA this year would also be a good plan.... and working!

    But I cannot wait! Super excited!

    Cheers, have a great week all!

    Pleased to announce that I have recently become a happy owner of a white Maxi. It is the standard trailer with a few modifications added by me, including:
    • Replaced the HM Classic TTT with an Echo Mk3 TTT with L-shaped and kitchen awnings
    • Replaced the black steel rims with older Hilux mag rims
    • Added door pockets for the doors which did not have caddies (thanks to SWAMBO)
    • Fitted rubber mats and linings for the drawers and storage spaces
    • Fitted some lashing points to the fridge and rear drawers
    • Replaced the Royal DC battery with a Delco 100Ah LC
    We enjoyed our first camping trip (12 days in KNP) recently and must say the trailer performed very well. It is a stable tow, providing lots of packing space and everything is well laid out when camping. Future planned upgrades include:
    • Fitting a bar / bottle storage rack
    • Mud flaps
    • A frame and nose cone cover sheets for protection against stone and sand blasting (before next year’s Namibia & KTP trip)
    • Possibly upgrading the axle to 2,5t (not sure if this is required for normal use/load – will check with Heinz)
    So far, the only aspect that I need to get sorted is a shudder emanating from the trailer when braking, felt during the last few meters before stopping. I have adjusted the brakes but this does not seem to help. I spoke to Heinz and he offered to have someone look at this for me if not sorted.
    Overall, I am very happy with the Maxi. Some pictures attached
