Awesome! The company I have been watching for awhile is Runaway Campers, out of Ocala FL...[/url]
Thanks for the link! That leads to another good idea. Gonna need to show the location of the trailer manufacturer for each one. That way members can see who might be closer or even in their local area.

I don't imagine this thread will be responsible for an increase in trailer sales anywhere , but if there's any chance it can help promote quality products built in our own backyards local small business owners (with a vested interest in outdoor hobbies) so much the better.

Also, any information about discontinued models/manufacturers is welcome as well. There is a HUGE market for used trailers out there, and not a whole of information sometimes. Any help we can give each other in that regard will be a welcome addition.

Re: (Mostly) Complete List of Off Road Trailer Manufacturers...

Apologies for the stagnation. Been insane at work and then I took some vacation during which I got sick due to allergies kicking my @$$...

I'll be updating the front page some more this week and into next. I promise!

Oh, and while I had my back turned Dendy Jarrett over on ExPo put the ONLY Conqueror Commander ever registered here in the USA up for sale.

Anybody got $43k I can borrow until I get this kidney transaction completed?

Damn I love those trailers...

EDIT:
Interesting thread here advising there are quality control issues with the Conqueror trailers. The thread mostly talks about the shoddy quality of the Black Series campers, but a Conqueror owner posts about his trailer issues.

I don't know the status but if still producing one of these might be what i go with: Bundu Gear: Safari-tested. Safari-tough. Off-Road Trailers
Those are actually Jurgens trailers (http://www.jurgenstrailers.co.za/) imported from South Africa. One of our own forum members, Antarctican, had an XT-140 trailer with the full cabin tent and awning setup. I think he may have sold it.

https://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...i-trailer.html


I'm also not sure they're still being imported. Rou (the South African ex-pat who started Bundu Gear here) had to pull up stakes a couple years ago, relocate to the east coast, and change their entire operation.

Also sold their [email protected]$$ GX470 that had been built into a Prado lookalike.

Met these guys at the Overland East. They are based and manufactured in FL. Bit on the larger side. Shorter version could be handled by the FJ.

Thanks, shack! I will take you up on that offer and you can expect to be featured in the 'Military Surplus' entry when I get there.

I plan to bring a lot of that ExPo knowledge over here. So often we see questions about 'off-road trailers' that get everyone's favorite choice as answers.

I have favorites too, but I figured the topic justified a potential sticky thread list just like Bumpers, Suspension Kits, or any other FJC accessory.

Maybe I'll even get this cross-posted to ExPo once it's complete and get Brady & Co to sticky it there. They have their 'Trailer Builds' sticky thread, but no list like this.

At some point I'll be able to stop using work as an excuse and get on with the rest it.
