They sure managed to capture some great scenes. Hopping wild animals + (nearly) the full line-up of Land Rover product offerings + vast expanses = an enthusiast's dream escape capsule.

Unfortunately light on interior imagery. Looks very modern and judging from the last moment of video - where the woman swings a table-top in a swooping action - it does look like a well-thought out design beyond the suspension.

I wonder if the air suspension is as reliable as that on a P38.

There are more videos on their website and YouTube. Cost range from $68,000 to $79,000 "drive away" so probably more with shipping. Looks really long too compared to the Conqueror UEV's. For us here in CA with some big rocky off road climbs that long of a trailer might be an issue. Also, I'm not sure my 200Tdi could pull it off road!

I only posted the general overview. they have dedicated interior and exterior videos on their youtube page. well thought out indeed. I didn't think I would find a trailer I like better than a conqueror for a family til now.

I have yet to come across anything made in Oz that isn't reliable and durable.

Too big for a lot of the terrain up here. That one posted in an earlier thread from Australia (conquerer?) would be sweet though they are similar in price...

I'm suprised there's no mention of insulating properties, AC, gensets, or solar. For that kind of money mt wife would demand AC.

actually in one of the videos it mentions AC, and it looks like the its on the roof from the exterior shots. with 2 fridges an AC, it would need a huge battery bank. dolar is the #1 add on needed, but theres alot of flat space on roof for it without a canvas rtt on top like most trailers.

Read the FAQ section.

DOES THE EXP-6 HANDLE HOT AND COLD CLIMATES OK?
Your camping enjoyment is paramount so with the EXP-6 you will be cool in hot climates and warm in cold climates. The EXP-6 climate control air-conditioning will have you cool in even extremely hot conditions. We test and travel with the EXP-6 in Australia’s north during the wet season. Temperatures during this time climb to over 45c (113F) with monsoon rain and extreme humidity. The EXP-6 body and roof is 30mm thick and this offers great insulation from the heat, it also has internal fans if you prefer to keep air movement without air conditioning. In below freezing environments the EXP-6 is also fitted with a heater system. The outlets are deliberately positioned low within the interior as hot air rises. The Webasto heater is adjustable to suit your requirements keeping you comfortable in icy conditions.

CAN WE USE SOLAR PANELS TO CHARGE THE BATTERY SYSTEM?
Yes, the EXP-6 comes standard with 260amp of solar power, and between 200-400amp of battery power (other options available).

IS THE EXP-6 GOOD IN DUSTY CONDTIONS?
The EXP-6 is fitted with a discreetly mounted snorkel. This pressurizes the interior and storage areas with clean filtered air. Our chassis design also separates from the body from the chassis with rubber body mounts – these isolate off-road vibrations and in conjunction with our suspension system mean the EXP-6 body and door openings doesn’t shake, rattle or flex like other off-road campers and caravans on rough dusty roads or tracks. With the very best in automotive seals, positive filtered air pressure, carefully considered door openings and our chassis and suspension design, we are confident the Bruder EXP-6 is the most dustproof camper available on the market.
