    I can't imagine what this costs. If you have to ask, you can't afford it. They don't list prices on website, they have a form to fill out. BruderX is only 6"6" wide so it is more narrow for trail use. Maybe we should start a thread and post these exotic pieces of camping heaven. Certainly an inspiration of ideas to builders and DIY'ers.
    I have to admit, in Canada there are essentially no real all weather off road trailers. Australia sure has the goods when it comes to trailers.
    So to start off the list

    I'd love to hang out at that spot in the trailer a few days...

    Love the way the tent is nice and low. thinking of an RTT, but don't want to climb up any more than 2-4 steps on a ladder.
    How do you get into the trailer box to get stuff out?

    The whole top hinges at the waistline, i.e. where the handicapped rails are, to allow right side access with the tent down. Access with the tent up is by lifting a panel under the mattress. I've never, ever seen another one with that hard cover on it. It was an extra cost option that is a PITA while on the trail, but is great when in storage.

    Were I wanting to clone this trailer rather than try to find one of them I would look at the MOAB tent and put it on an M-416 or similar trailer.

    Tvan, I would love to own one someday. Heck, I'd be fine renting one for a week.

    For me the Pioneer Mitchell trumps the TVAN (which I've lusted about for quite some time :D): Pioneer Campers

    But neither are exported to the US.

    We have six of these in the CSC club. The last three of these USA VenturCrafts were just added in the last two months. IMG_0016.JPG IMG_0048.JPG IMG_0088.JPG

    www.patriotcampers.com.au going to the camping shows in aus they are by far the best built and most capable. What i would do for a toyhauler. They are also available in the usa now i believe.

    New box, still needs some work, inside lights, gas shocks to help open the lid, switch panel for lights, drawers to hold some stuff, tie down mounts to hold everything else and more

    That is weird looking, cool concept. I like the drop out sides too.
