Naand almal

Ek is besig om vir my 'n Xt140 te koop:D. Wat dink julle van hom. Wie het een en watse modifikasies het julle al gedoen.

Ek wil veral kyk na die kombuis, en om 'n gas geyser in te sit.

Groete

I don't think it's a bad trailer, however I have seen many of them developing rust in the early stages of their life.
There are new ones standing in Durban and the metal around the locks/hinges has already started to rust.
When I bought my Jurgens Xcape, I compiled a comprehensive lists of defects, some of which are yet to be repaired.
The QC at Jurgens CI is questionable in my opinion, so check it out properly before you buy.

If you don't own an FJ Cruiser you probably won't understand...
Until we meet on a dusty road someday, somewhere, keep on Cruisering....

Thank you Legend35

Luckily i am buying it in Gauteng, so the rust problem might not stick its head out. I have also heard about the lack of QC and after sale claims. I am going to check the trailer out today, so i hope for the best.

Ciske from Gomad has done extensive mods on a few, including tanks, sliders, kitchens etc.

I heard that it has limited off the shelf accessories, and if I am correct the nosecone is made of fiberglass that poses a problem with cracking :eh:
