A colleague of mine is currently looking at offroad and semi-offroad trailers and was wondering how the Campmasters perform. I promised him a verdict within 30 minutes and I know this forum won't disappoint.

The campmaster I had performed perfect and is well built. They are produced by a company in Bothaville http://www.karet.co.za" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Cassie, do they make the Campmaster brand (those that Makro sells) as well? I thought they were a separate company?

Jip.. I once phoned them to get a replacement fender for a Camp Master Trailer. You can buy from them directly but the price is basically the same as you will pay at Makro (or that is what they quoted me at that stage)

Thanks - never realized it was Karet that made them. Certainly nothing wrong with Karet's trailers.

I looked at them when I was in the market for a trailer, but found the sheetmetal abit thin for off-road use and the ones at Makro already showed signs of rust! Not sure how long they were already there, so it is just an observation, but I decided there and then that I was not going to part with (I think it was R28k) for a rust infested example....

Thanks Theunis, will keep that in mind. Could it be that the rust is an effect of the humidity? I see you're in CT?

Ek wil graag n Conquerer sleepwa he,maar ongelukkig is die waens bietjie buite my finansieele bereik.Ek het die Wildebeest trailer op die LA Sport skou gesien en het lank met die eienaars gepraat en was baie beindruk oor hoe hulle dink en ook hoe hulle bereid is om te help.Jean is ook baie ervare in die bou van trok sleepwaens en weet waar n wa moet strek wees sonder om baie te weeg.Ek glo dit is die moeite werd om by hulle in te loer en met hulle te gesels en na die produk te kyk.Hier koop jy van mense af en nie net nog n produk nie.Naverkoops diens gaan jy by hulle kry.

Sterkte.

Ek is nie seker omtrent die roes nie. My Echo3 is 'n 2008 model en wys geen tekens van roes nie. (Behalwe op die "sogenaamde" gechroomde naafdoppe..... Die bak is a-ok!

Ander ding van die Challenger trailers is dat die deur openinge vir my baie klein was.

Laaste was die gewig van die deksel (wat jy of jou anderhelf) sal moet oplig (tent en al) om by goed uit te kom! Ek het dieselfde probleem met die Jurgens XT trailers. Hulle lyk goed maar die praktiese goed pooitjie hulle! (In my opinie).

Ek probeer nie se jy moet 'n Echo koop nie! Kyk net die storie goed deur en gesels met soveel eienaars as moontlik voordat jy jou swaarverdiende geld oorhandig!

Ek wonder hoe stofdig hulle deure is. Was nou al deur die Baviaanskloof en was die afgelope langnaweek deur die Cederberge en het nie 'n krummel stof in my trailer nie!

Geniet die soektog.
