Brudder EXP-6 represents the new class of “Go-Anywhere” Extreme off-road travel trailers; robust but luxurious, lite, agile, energy self-sufficient, designed for roughest possible terrain...

      In the previous page we discussed the characteristics of the Australian-made Bruder EXP-6 off-road travel trailer. Given its outstanding technical specifications, robust, modern construction, impressive suspension and very comfortable if not luxurious set of features, our conclusion was straightforward: it belongs to the new class of Super-Extreme Go-Anywhere RV. It will gently but surely follow your towing vehicle, whenever you decide to go.

If you wouldn't see it, you wouldn't believe it: so here it is Bruder EXP-6 crossing water

   ... then after crossing the water is is ready for camping :-)

       There is not much negative, one can say about Bruder EXP-6. So we had to try hard to find some weak points:

It seems that the Bruder EXP-6 is “saturated” with electronics allowing for control and monitoring of almost every trailer’s function. While it can be attractive and helpful (especially after long and exhausting day in the wilderness), it somehow stays in contrast with the modesty and sheer simplicity of the surrounding Mother Nature we intend to explore.

Similarly, the TV seems to be an example of an “over-design”, because certainly the last thing a “seasoned explorer” would like to do in the middle of Nowhere (or actually in the “Heart of the Mother Nature”) is to watch a soap opera or listen to “news” that may happen to be fake…. Let’s face it – one of the main reasons you want to explore the Mother Nature is to move from the Fake World into the Real One (but it’s just my personal opinion).

Another negative aspect of such high level of “high-tech” in go-anywhere RV is the reliability of components. Regardless of their certainly high-quality, as Mr. Murphy pointed out – “If something can go wrong, it certainly will” and we can only add – most likely it will happen suddenly and in most difficult situations!

Summarizing: When it comes to ability to drive across rough terrains, in the tandem of Bruder EXP-6 and towing vehicle the latter will be the limiting factor (regardless if it is renowned Landcruiser, Ranger etc..). The truth is, that the Bruder EXP-6 is designed to follow any path the tow vehicle can explore.

          It seems that thanks to its uniqueness and off-road characteristics Bruder EXP-6 deeply stirred international community of RV-ers. Taking this into account, the company offers models adapted to meet country-specific regulations and provides a shipping service. So far Bruner EXP-6 models have been shipped to North America, Europe, Russia and Middle East, but I guess it is just the beginning….
