    Hi All

    I need some assistance here with final spec on the maxi.

    I basically ordered everything you can but want top know if there is anything any of you would do different from the start. ( leave out or modify)

    I would also like a bar area. Not sure if this is possible?

    Should I make any changes to suspension upfront? We plan on only doing overland trips with this trailer.

    Thank you

    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 cabinet.

    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 trips. I like the bar setup in the comfort trailer by Conqueror.


    Thanks

    I don't know if you mean the suspension to the tow vehicle or the trailer?


    Thanks

    love that idea. Looks great. Wonder if the current door will have enough space for that ?

    I am not sure whether you have read through Heinz's comments on other threads - I don't think Heinz will ever put an independent suspension in his trailers
