yea now the 4 mths of research on what model you actually want, then the disappointment of what you can afford compared to what you want :)

Good luck :):):)

go take some happy pils truckster

go for it and have a ball in your trailer my tip look for some thing simple with the basics like a water tank with a hand pump, good ground clearance and not over the top in the weight ( as light as practicably possible) and has matching wheel studs with your vehicle so you will be able to run the trailer tyres as spares on your vehicle if the need ever arose

and you are a lucky bugger :D

**** I did it myself many times over the years expecting to get what I wanted for 10k, to find out what I wanted was close to 30k.

Theres threads with that EXACT thing happening in it in the camper trailer forum regularly.

People have their wishlist go out shopping to find out what they want isnt in coo-ee of their budget. Some trailers are over 40k. Then you go offroad caravans 100k+

I have a Camel Camper and it has been around Australia twice plus a couple up the centre. Great bit of kit. I got the big tent with annex and walls which gives a huge amount of room. The only advice i can give is get the trailer with the walkway at the end of the bed, at least then you wont have to climb over someone to get out of the bed in the middle of the night.

I know the feeling, i joked to the missus that we should go, expecting to get laughed at... looks like a roof top tent for the bike trailer is on the cards..... Aren't us men trained to fight for these things? kinda suspicious when it happens so easily :D
