    Default Metalian - Maxi

    Hi All

    i am in the market for a trailer and was just about to pull the trigger on a new comfort from Conqueror when I came across the Maxi. I have never seen one up close and itís scary to buy something based on a few pictures.

    The tent on the Comfort is very good. How does the tent and bed compare on the Maxi?

    is it possible to fit a 17Ē rim (5 stud) with 285/70 tyres? Would like to have the same as my car.

    any other input would be great. Thanks

    Kurt has the perfect combination in my opinion if you want a offroad trailer opposed to an offroad caravan.

    Due to my work I have some good experience with all the trailer tents available on the market. I prefer the Conqueror Trailer Tent above any other. The only other tent I would consider is that of the Bushtrotter Warthog, but I am not sure if they even exist anymore.

    I owned a Metalian Maxi for 2 years and only sold it because of the Tentco Snr Trailer tent. At the time I wanted a Campcover trailer tent, but they stopped manufacturing them around the same time.

    Had I gone with a Conqueror tent, I might still own the Maxi. The Metalian is a very well built trailer and Heinz supports the product years later. That was remarkable.

    It tows well, is well balanced and very well laid out.

    All the best with your decision.

    Dependant on how many people you have in your family I think I have the ultimate Metalian set up. Having had the Howling Moon Trailer Tent set up which is spacious and comfortable, but takes, like most TTT set ups, hours to put up and even longer to pack away I have now a Bundutec Tent 1.6m wide and Bundutec Awning. I set up in 15 min and beak down in 20min. When my kids join us camping they set up their own 3x3 Dome.

    Im in Midrand if anyone wants to have a look
