Yeah, I looked up the pricing on the biggest one. The 490. Pricing between $47K and $77K.

Pretty cool, though.

Watched the video.. Wow!
I think it is very well designed and looking at the features, perhaps the price is in line with that.
I am sure something like it could be built that costs less, but then it would probably lack a lot of features and the quality would be suspect.
Thanks for posting that video btw!

OK, now I'll survive without one, but not without debilitating levels of envy.

we just did this a week or so ago.

yes, you can get Conquere trailers in the States. There is a guy in AZ that imports them as requested, east or west coast import.

For tons of info, and owners of them,

I believe the one in the video is sub 20k.

"three full size suitcases...more than enough for any wife." LOL

That thing is awesome. $44k is a lot, but it would be worth it for a hunting guide or a small family that went into the outback a lot. Also, I'll bet that's 44k Australian, which is $40,700 US. That gives you a few thousand extra to stock the bar.

It's a great deal, in that case. Popup trailers in the US are surprisingly expensive new and are usually crap quality.

That's in upside down dollars. The exchange rate is higher than it used to be but 50K Aussie is 46K freedom dollars.

The positive pressure system to keep dust out is an excellent idea.

Gotcha. I didn't even think to convert.

I like it! Now that we have our SHTF trailer candidate, what would be the best tow vehicle?

Now, how am I going to continue to camp in my old Wal-Mart tent? It simply won't do.

Worst part was, I didn't even realize how inadequate it was until I saw this. All these years, I've been camping wrong.

I'd rather build my own out of a teardrop trailer.. but I'll agree that the trailer posted by the OP is badass.

There are off road tear drop trailers also. Generally the smaller ones. Check out my link above.

Shipping + import from Aus is about $9,000USD on top of the price.

FWIW, the trailers are actually make in South Africa and exported to Australia.

I thought the Jumping Jack trailers were bad ass but this takes the cake!
