I seriously want one.... BUT about £30,000, presumably + shipping & VAT & duties (until we leave the EU), makes it seriously expensive.

They are very nice, but in my opinion not a patch on Drifta dot campers, they are bomb proof, but If money were no object then it would be a tvan track trailer, used one in Oz and they are awesome.

Looked at bringing a second hand one over but the duty and vat cripples it even second hand, we wanted to put 3 in a shipper to get shipping costs sensible.

We have searched high and low....... You could take out a small mortgage and get a nene overland camelback camper, looks good on a chaser trailer chassis, but imo expensive and not a patch on Ozy trailers. Trek overland have a trailer, looks ok, but again they don't use the space over the wheel arch which imo is a waste. 3 dog camping trailer but make sure you are sitting down when you see the price. Gorgigear camper looks good and not a bad price, but would need some extensive mods for us.

Looked at bringing one in from Aus, but a tvan second hand is circa 20k plus UK VAT, plus approx 12% duty, plus a couple of grand for shipping (with the inevitable customs drama) made the camper ££££££.

Even an awning from Drifta was going to cost me £3.5k to bring in.

So we have we decided to build our own and take as many good bits as we can and put them into our own.

Love to hear others thoughts Thumbs Up

On the patriot, was rather surprised at the feeble inverter..

I have been to the three dogs site and run their configurator, which is rather good actually.

I can build my own from the electrics onwards but no good on anything else. Will just have to wait for something half sensible to appear on eBay or the forum
