That is great, thanks Jackie. The more info we can provide the members the better.

So what we can tell members is that for less that $5000 they can have an off road soft floor camper trailer which includes a full annex, is that correct??

Now does this come with a kitchen of any description or on board water?? And do you have a choice of colours, either the trailer or the canvas??

Thanks again Jackie for sharing this info.

Cheers Gypsy.....

Hi Gypsy, yes, for less than $4,500.... what a bargain eh! There is no kitchen in that price, and he buys the tents and trailers all in groups of about 15, them puts them together himself. So the colours on the web site is what you get. We didnt need the kitchen as we already had all the gear, so im not sure if he would put one in or not. I think, the impression i got anyway, was about suppling the basic's and keeping the cost down, and people adding what they want on to it. It does have the thingy's for a gas bottle and jerry can. We are very happy with the CT and more happier with the price.. If anyone wants to ask more questions, feel free. Will have our 1st set of photos after this weekend at Levuka.... Cheers jackie

Thanks a heap Jackie, I will look forward to seeing your pics when you post them. I will also look forward to hearing about your trip/camp to Levuka. It is one of my favourite destinations.

Have a good one Jackie.

Good for you PJ, hope it comes off for you. A camper certainly makes camping a more organised affair.

You can have it packed and ready to go, just add clothes and food and you are off.

I notice in the web page they are saying they are 750 kg but there is no mention of braking system. At that weight they I would recommend electric brakes. over 750 kg it is a legal requirement

Whilst it may not be a requirement for 750 and less I would still be putting brakes on the CT simply as a safety measure.

My first CT was supposedly only 350 and I had brakes on it and would never be without them now irrespective of the CT weight.

I think the 750kg is referring to the total permissable mass that can be supported by the trailer. I'm just reconfirming that with the manufacturer now, but I was under the impression that the actual weight was closer to 350kg all up (the tent top is 147kg).

Think you will find some manufacturers will state their vehicle total laden mass less than 750 kg to remove the need for them to install brakes. Only real test is to put them over a weigh station when loaded. if you are over the trailers rated load capacity then insurance can be an issue in the event of an accident.
