    Never had it on the scales ?

    Another owner Dendy thought they were about 1600 or 1650 ?

    Could be since they have brakes and are longer than the compacts

    Hope that helps can say it tows very nice though does not feel like even that

    Somebody should buy this- ... it is a heck of a deal and the ones in good shape are even harder to find as time goes by.

    I keep looking at your trailer. I am looking at getting my first off road trailer to use in Baja and West Coast USA. I am not handy as many of you all are and want to get something that is ready to roll without needed modifications, upgrades, repairs (water tank and charging system). I know I want solar due to being offroad Baja so that is additional expense as well. With all this in mind does it make sense for me to go for this trailer vs. a new (and more expensive) Horizon? The biggest advantage with Horizon is I can get it my way and fully ready to go with all options. However, if this trailer is same level of quality and has other advantages I am not aware of I would welcome all input. Thanks much.

    officially they call it a 2.1m x 2.1m bed

    this gives you a idea I am just shy of 6 foot and about 230lbs here in this pic



    the pic below:
    gives you a idea the size of the annex of course larger when staked out
    also it gives you a idea how the bed folds out into the annex area
    the width of the trailer is 54 inches on the top edge
    the hinge part of the bed is about half the bed width so it does not come out into the annex

    also you can see in the below pic the side door of the trailer folded down the silver door you can see between my girl and the elephant on the back is a small door to another storage area both can be accessed from inside the annex and not get in the way of the ladder
    this is the side with 4 wolf packs we used them for our clothes and found it handy when getting ready in the morning having a table and area to do so from inside the tent
    Is your little one a carrot-top...ya gotta love the reds..keep that gene going...LOL..my lil red just turned 11 yesterday...GLWS..

    Kinda hoping others might respond like Jeff

    As of course some might see me as biased

    But Jeff made solid points the charging is not a big deal I just a second charger that is a very high end one so not a issue IMHO the stock ones were ok but not as good as some others like the one I bought which was about a $350 charger
    The water tank ? Not sure whats up seam maybe ?
    But two 70 liter tanks and also why some of the South Africa guys swear on twin tanks just for a reason
    2 70 liter tanks is a lot of water

    Solar is not a biggy as that is always a add on type setup designed based ones needs

    I bought the trailer understanding no trailer is setup for anyone with out customizing every trailer build you see people do little mods to make it their own so like Jeff said what are your needs ?

    The things that sold me on the conqueror was a great ground room off the tent
    Access to all sides of the trailer when the tent is deployed which is really nice to have IMHO

    Being able to drop a side door and have the kitchen their is nice or drop the other side access to your clothes etc... The back to the fridge etc...

    Of course I am going to say buy mine sqve a few bucks and tweak it how you like

    Conqueror has a good track record in South Africa and is one of the more popular trailers down their where trailers seem to be more common place

    Hope my views help a bit and feel free pm me and can chat and I am hoping this week to get some good detail shots as it is in great shape
    I also am a straight shooter and disclose the problems I know need attention as I would hate to read a add then have someone say oh and by the way

    The Conquest is a unique trailer- Not as lightweight as the Compact, but much roomier inside and with storage than the Compact.
    The room below is LARGE! When we camped, we left the door inside the room with access to the clothes bins open (as it is behind the ladder to get up to the upper "loft bed") My son slept on an Oz Cot under that drop side door and it fit perfectly there and still allowed access to the forward door storage area.
    The amount of storage inside is HUGE. And allows for an Engel Combi 60 (fridge and freezer - both) in the rear with no problems. Be careful the lift struts as they are quite stout!

    The Conquest is one of 5 in the States. 4 that came from Jurassic Trailers in Atlanta before they folded, and on owned by Wmac in Washington State that he got from Canada.

    The thing that is great about the Conquerors is they are perfectly balanced. It was always easy to move this thing around by hand on level ground.

    It has surge brakes, so there is really no need to electric brakes or the like. They are well made and top drawer trailers. I would advise, however to keep them garaged, or covered when not in use, as the tent protective covers will age without protection from the environment when stored.

    Hope that helps answer some of the questions. Chad, have you been under the trailer to determine if the water tank has a crack in it, or if perhaps a line has just come loose?

    Thanks
