Australians talk funny.

Damn, that is a nice trailer!!!

OMG, the suggested retail is 50k AUS. That's about $46k USD....

Just get spacers made. That is what I did. Then you can use standard trailer hubs and buy bearings/parts anywhere.

Buy a Sankey and start your build.

I made my LR patterned axle out of schedule 80 3" pipe and the end bits of a RRC. Some time with a sawzall, a lathe and a welder.... viola.
I have a pair of adapter/spacers for a 5x5.5 to 5x6.5 that I used on my M416 before I sold it. They worked well except they weren't hub centric and pushed the wheels outboard further than I liked.

I wonder if we got enough interest if we could talk them into a discount and figure out a cheaper way to get them over here. Been drooling over that expedition thread for months...

I was bopping around on Craigslist today, You know LA, San Diego, Phoenix, Reno, etc searching for RTT's just to see what's out there. Quite a few off road trailers came up. JTYOTK

Didn't search GTT's though......
