    Default Lightweight Travel Trailer Layout

    This is the best trailer design I've seen.
    It would be great if a local company could adopt a similar "bush-ready" design.

    I didn't see a stove, nor a food prep area. If he is 5'11", the overall height looks to be over 8' (2400mm), and with independent suspension, it is likely to roll-over quicker than a circus poodle. For the US, 4200lbs is light, but in SA this is 1900kgs and above the average weight of similar sized caravans. Overall nice idea for a sport style weekend teardrop. Not sure how well those rear doors will keep out dust on the road and rain in a heavy downpour. The big rear opening may also compromise the structural sturdiness of the box. Not yet in production and no price tag.

    I agree about the height. Do a mini moose test and see what happens.

    On a side note, I have seen some SA manufactured high end vans drive around camp for hours waiting for someone to leave as their (much lower than 2400mm) vans cant fit under trees to get into a site.

    These bunk beds (adjustable) and cargo area are quite impressive as well -
