Yes, less than 40 days to departure now! I can't wait...

Now that's a proper camping trailer!

The attention to detail, the high degree of customization, and the the overall sophistication of design make it a joy to see.

Having seen it in person a couple of weeks ago, I know how well Dragocena is made.

Thank you so much for posting these images.

Well, the trailer has just completed a 6500km trip to Namibia and back, including some of the worst roads I have ever driven.

 

Apart from damage sustained in a rear-end shunt on the first day of the trip, I am actually pretty happy. Most systems worked very well, and the issues (again, apart from the crash damage) will be pretty easy to fix.

 

But, the crash damage gives me an opportunity to re-design some areas... Stay tuned!

Sorry i missed your letter @@Tom Kellie!

 

The trailer handled the tough conditions admirably. And at times, by mistake, i really put it through the wringer.

 

Now i am considering what changes will be incorporated during the repair...
