    hubby and me got the maxi just because we could . inbox heinz and ask him to send you the drawings of both the metalians, mini and maxi. also ask him if there is anybody close to you that have a metalian available that you can view.

    if all else fails - i know we on the forum can make some plan.

    Just remember that the base cost of the trailer includes no extras and is nowhere near where you'll end up getting the trailer neatly rigged. You're easily looking at more than double the purchase price to get it to "complete" status.

    Prior to the Mini we traveled only with a drawer system in the landy - this repacked in the Mini leaves almost half of the space available still! You'd be surprised at the amount of packing space in a Mini. I wouldn't even know how to fill up a Maxi

    With a bit of luck and after Heinz (I am sure he kicked the transporter where it hurts....on the knee) organised the speedy delivery of the trailer, I should be able to kick my trailer's tyres in Henks back yard over the weekend.

    After what has happened to Kalahari Safari's son at the Zambian border trying to import a vehicle, I think I will have to import the trailer 1st and then add all the nice things. So it will be 2 drives to JHB and back and there goes my planned trip to Luangwa. Will have to make the most of it and maybe on the way back to my hometown via Bots to take in Moremi. Cant think of a better place to introduce the Metallian to the bush than staying over for a couple of nights in the Moremi...hope I get bookings

    I might just introduce "Adonis" our chef, to SA seeing that both my sons have now decided to leave the nest. He proudly announced now that Bert jr is not in the house any longer that Annemarie has been demoted to the back seat and that he will take over as navigator where Bert jr left off.......eish... then he presented his freshly issued passport with a colgate smile. He will be of great help keeping me awake whilst driving down to SA......groot oe en al!! and might just become our travel companion of the future.
