My Metalian Maxi

Post by Stefan » 06 Apr 2018 14:02

After eyeing these trailers for a good couple of years, I've finally made the plunge and got myself a 2nd hand unit (Huge thanks to Piet who scouted it out in Kempton for me :thumbup:)

Anyway, here are a couple of pics of the rig

There are already a growing list of "Enhancements" that will still be made, and overall I am ecstatically happy with the trailer. The Tentco tent is ok, but nowhere near the quality of my Howling Moon dome

Very nice Stefan, looks like a great buy.

Can I ask a very personal question :lol:

How much moolah do they go for second hand in that condition? I have been looking for a while for a decent trailer.

Thanks gents!

Rhett, I don't mind the question at all, I've been looking around for a Metalian for a while and this one came up on Gumtree and 4x4community classifieds.

Awesome trailer. Was also looking at them a couple of years ago. But decided on the wildebeest cause the factory is just a couple of blocks from me so it was easy to visit and see the trailers
