    Best full-size 4 season composite trailer?

    As far as not vibrating to pieces, it is not really the independent part of the suspension that is helping. It is a more active spring rate for the load instead of the typical short and stiff trailer leaf spring. Even more important is good compression and rebound dampening. A trailer that was...

    This has been discussed elsewhere but I also wonder if the swaying has to do with trailer height and weight placement such as having water tanks aft of the axles. I would like to know what kind of real world, loaded to camp, hitch weights these end up with. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    I'm pretty sure I have seen a torsion sway bar in pictures of the Kimberley trailers also. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    That's fair. It's not really just the $15k. It's the $105k before that. Lol! Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    The Karavan is such a cool design to me. I'd love to see a US mfg attempt something similar. I have also always wondered how bad of an insulation impact the slide out beds have and could there be a reasonable way to make one better insulated than just some thin metal panels. That being said, if...

    Pause overland trailer

    You are absolutely right. I believe most people's goal is a trailer that can regularly leave pavement and not self destruct. Not something they can rock crawl the Rubicon with. If it can routinely handle levels 1 and 2 as you described and manage carefully picking it's way through some rougher...

    Another thing to keep in mind is that if your rig doesn't have the insulation properties to keep the heat out reasonably, running the AC on battery is a losing battle. Maybe nice to drop the cabin temp in the evening before bed or something I guess. Nice option to have but I can see why it isn't...

    Great Expośe on the Quality of Camper Trailers and RV’s Today

    This is the kind of stuff that makes me think about buying a used unit at a deep discount, if that happens, then gut it and build to suit my OCD and desires. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    $138k - $146k! Hahahahaha! I'm not questioning Garmin's capabilities either. I'm questioning the need and desire to pay for it in an off-road trailer. Just what I need boondocking off-grid, my trailers entire functionality down to its suspension (air bag pressure) dependent on a tablet and...

    High Altitude Trailer HT 105

    Here is some direct feedback from HAT about some of the differences between the Roamer X and XT105: "There are several differences. Length of the frame (Roamer X is longer), suspension system (Cruisemaster vs Timbren), heating system (Truma Combi vs Fogatti/Dometic), toilet system (Nature's...

    Yes, I had the same thoughts about the fully integrated Garmin system. Makes me think of cars these days. Basically no hope of working on them yourself without special training and equipment. Just what you want out on a boondocking trip. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    ROA just posted a new video of the Pause offerings. Let's get the ********** fest started. Lol! I will admit there are things that sound cool and I would like to believe a big U.S. manufacturer is capable and willing to build a quality unit. I'm skeptical though. Again coming out of the gates over...

    OFF-GRID 4-season Northern Lite camper with HUGE garage

    That's a cool rig! I have been toying with the idea of building an off-road trailer with a setup like this. Good luck with the sale. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    And yet again, here we go with a $100k price tag. Lol! All these manufacturers are on crack. How a Palomino brand thinks they can charge that much is beyond me. Sent from my SM-G991U using Tapatalk

    Hmmm. The salesman and the guy filming are horrible and don't come across very knowledgeable of the off-road trailer market. It is heavy but it appears pretty stoutly built by looks. Poking around on their Facebook page I saw a couple different floorplans I think. $100k for a Palomino product is...

    Romer, you and Brad are my two prime examples for why the Karavan is a great design. The driver side door is only a minor nitpick for me. Not deal killer by any means. I wouldn't buy a Karavan to focus on campgrounds. I do recall on here or Facebook someone who had purchased I think a Kruiser...

    High Altitude Trailer HT 105

    Again, I think the big draw of the "off-road" trailer market is a trailer that won't rattle itself to pieces if you regularly leave the pavement with it. Only a very small percentage want to "wheel" it in what might be considered gnarly terrain. Trailers outside of the off-road market just...

    Someone in the US needs to take a page out of the Kimberley Karavans playbook and come up with a well insulated and sturdy hi-lo design. I really like the flexibility of the Karavan and it would be top of my list except a couple things that stop me from pulling the trigger. I would like it to be...
