    EzyTrail Stirling Z camper trailer

    The EzyTrail forward folding Stirling Z camper trailer looks great to me. Does anyone have one?

    It looks HD and it's compact, relatively lightweight. Excellent pullout kitchen, etc. Only $13,500 new.

    I reckon I could live on one of these long term! Any thoughts?

    We had (still got ) the model before this one and used to tow it behind a the defender. Out on the Hwy, youd hardly notice it behind you. Easy to use, comfortable etc,, towed ours up Googs Tk even,, not that Id recommend that though,, even behind the D4.

    To do our trip/laps,, weve gone with a caravan as its minimal set up and pack up effort as opposed to any form of camper trailer set up. I want to be as relaxed as possible in all aspects,, for me, its worth every cent to have/tow a full size van.

    I would imagine that if you are living long term off grid or just traveling the set up time/effort isn't that important because you wont be mooving that often so that isn't my main concern when choosing between a van or a camper trailer.
    Comfort however is something that you really need to think about.
    An air conditioned van that is bug free is a far better option for sleeping in than a camper trailer especially in the North and it is also much better in a van during a storm/squall or during dusty/windy days.
    camper trailers are great for a weekender or for an adventure holiday But as a form of long term accommodation they are sadly lacking.

    Weve been living in our Track Topaz for over 3 years now. We have loved every minute of it. There is a strong feeling of freedom and independence. We chose a small off road van rather than a larger van so that we could go to most places without being limited by the towing weight and size. We move back to our house next month so that will be a major readjustment for us.
