    Default Off Trax Trailer Fan Club

    Well, by looking at all the different fan clubs on the forum and looking at the increase of people buying Off Trax trailers, I think it is time to start a fan club for the Off Trax people as well (I do not see such a thread on the forum yet).
    Please share all your trips, mods or whatever you have on your Off Trax trailers with us. Although I do not have mine yet, I already ordered the Outplay this week and will start posting pics as soon as I get it. In the meantime I will be watching this thread.

    Hi Erich

    This is an excellent idea, indeed. Will start contributing as time goes by.

    Let's start by indicating where all the Offtrax trailers are based. We are in Hartbeespoort.

    George, hopefully the thread will pick up once there are more Off Trax owners on this forum. It will be great if you can start posting some of your photo's, thanks. I don't know what I'm suppose to add here while I'm waiting for my trailer, maybe my deposit slip, hehe.

    NJ, I'm holding my thumbs. Maybe we will collect the same time.

    George, I'm in Lichtenburg, but not too far from you.

    A good start at least will be to add the link here of another thread that I have started previously just after out first trip with our Outplay. On this link you will also find pictures of how the Outplay looked back then....

    My parents have a trailer that was build by OffTrax. Not one of the usual models. A bit of our own design. Added some pics. They just added a different tent (one from Summit trailers). So far happy with the build quality.

    One also encounters less positive experiences as you go along these journeys. The attached pictures show a somewhat "battered" Outplay strapped with ratchet straps.

    These were taken when we arrived back home from three weeks on the road in Botswana in 2013. The reason for the straps was due to the rear slide that was not secured with a slide lock and when we entered the Savuti sand roads up a sandy incline, the heavy laden slide slid backwards and broke the rear door locks.

    Lesson learnt - make sure your rear slide/s is/are secured with proper slide locks.

    It is obvious that this was a challenging trip and I can truly say that the Outplay came through with flying colors. You can see that everything was covered in a thick layer of dust in the Savuti but there was no dust inside the Outplay whatsoever.

    To me the addition of the front jacks was one of the best decisions we ever made. When these are applied the Outplay stands like a rock and if you pick up issues with your jockey wheel setup these also saves the day.
