Off-road trailer

Ain’t no moun­tain high enough

Echo, one of the lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers of off-road trail­ers in South Africa, re­cently launched a new mem­ber of the fam­ily, the Echo 6. This trailer will get you from Cape Town to the Caprivi with­out has­sles. If your Land Rover can make it, this trailer will fol­low in its tracks. When de­sign­ing the Echo 6, the team at Echo re­duced the pan­els, joints and weld­ing in the main body to a min­i­mum, sav­ing 40 per cent on body weight from its pre­de­ces­sors. Echo says all the in­ner com­po­nents were de­signed in mod­u­lar fash­ion which speeds up fit­ment time and helps clients to fur­ther ac­ces­sorise the trailer. Two sus­pen­sion op­tions are avail­able, the leaf spring sus­pen­sion with float­ing rear shackle, and a fully in­de­pen­dent coil sus­pen­sion for ex­port. The trailer sleeps five, but for any ex­tras such as a fridge, geyser and shower fit­tings on the tent, you will have to spend a lit­tle ex­tra. Pri­mary fun fac­tor: Make your home any­where you can find a patch of earth.

Price:P R190 000 (ex­clud­ing ex­tras) from Echo 4x4. Length:L 3.9m | Height: 2.2m | Width: 1.5m | Weight: 544kg
