    The beauty about Venter is that each and every part they use on their trailers is available on their website or directly from their factory in Roodepoort area.

    I have a 1993 6-foot model and this is what I have done to it since 2008 when I bought it from my old man:

    1. New lid, modified to fit my old design trailer (two hinges versus 3) - this included a gas strut.
    2. New rear lights
    3. New wire harness with plug complete
    4. New 13 wheels with tyres to replace the 10 jobbies
    5. New U-bolts to secure the axle to the leaf springs after adding a spacer to lift the body due to the larger wheels

    And this is all reasonably priced IMHO so its a great trailer to keep for a long time.

    Petri,
    Ek het n Chase sleepwa laasjaar gekoop vir Nam trippie en het 6000km daarmee gedoen in Des, ingesluit 1200km grondpad. Het nou nuwe jockey wiel en nuwe stel bladvere ingesit. Neuskas en rak op neuskas, oplig deksel en ook deur agter vir toegang.

    Spasie klink reg vir wat jy nodig het, weeg 300kg en maks 750. 2 jerry kanne en watertenk plus 2 12v proppe

    Sleepwa het nuwe Howling Moon ttt op, basies net groot slaapkamer. Ek kan tent afhaal en op my LR sit as jy nie in tent belang stel nie.
    Sleepwa staan nou my garage vol en ek het sprite scout nomad, maar wou nie karavaan so ver sleep Nam toe nie.

    As jy belang stel, 082 568 9759 ek het fotos op foon, kan Whats App

    The XT series from Jurgens (65,120,140, etc) are heavily over-engineered trailers Petri.
    I can attest to their longevity and robust design - BUT you pay the price in weight, they are very heavy trailers.
    They're also quite pricey as a result, and I do think there are cheaper options out there, but the XT trailers would be a 'buy once' purchase, and it'll last forever.

    Hoor wat jy se, Mark.

    So LT65 kan mooi loop vir 'n all rounder waentjie, en daai gas en watertenk holder is nice. Die ekstra latch regs voor ook, dan kan ons die Weekender in hom saam karring.
    Hyt nice steadies ook, so hy kan 'n baie nice "base" wees saam met die Oztent(s), met stofie en yskas ens ens op een plek.

    Ons gaan hom dalk nooit eers gebruik agter die Kombi aan na Ballito nie, maar hy kan tog werk, so once in a while.

    Petri, I had very similar requirements, except I wanted to load bicycles on top, and wanted it to have a payload of 450kg, 14inch tyres, a 1.5ton axle and internal dimensions that will take 20x20L drums.
    I ended up having a trailer built to my needs, for less than what I would have paid for a similar commercially made trailer.
    It works lekker behind my bakkie and my wife's car, and if I deflate the tyres it is lekker on gravel as well.

    Hi Petri,

    Ek het so paar jaar terug vir my 'n Desert Wolf Kampa gekoop, vir 'n baie goeie prys, lyk nog eintlik nuut omdat dit vlekvrye staal is. As jy so een kan koop, hy hou vir ewig, maar is skaars om tweedehans te kry.

    Groete

    Sal waarskynlik die XT65 wees Blue. Ek wil net fisies gaan meet of die Oztent(s) gaan pas op daai carriers.
