The coupling used by
Expedition Anhängertechnik is unique on the European market. A special AL-KO
Offroad Coupling is used here. The hitch can be mounted on the 50mm ball of a
standard trailer hitch. The advantage is its 100% freedom of movement in all
three axes of rotation. Thus the trailer has unrestricted off-road mobility.
The approval as a
light trailer (max. 750kg) eliminates the overrun brake and maneuvering
off-road becomes easy.
The chassis absorbs
all impacts and unevenness of the roadway or terrain. Ideally, none of these
forces will reach the load. If you know a classic unbraked trailer, you know that
it has a very hard or even no suspension and the load is strongly shaken.
The running axle is
purchased by KNOTT and offers, among other things, a drum brake which is used
as a parking brake to safely park the trailer.
combination is matched to that of the towing vehicle. Therefore it is not
necessary to carry a spare wheel on the trailer. In case of a breakdown, the
spare wheel of the towing vehicle can be used. Conversely, one wheel of the
trailer can serve as a spare wheel for the towing vehicle.
You can mount tyres up
to a maximum diameter of 37″ (939.8mm) and a width of 12.5″
The rim used must be
an aluminium rim. Here the choice of the offset and the bolt circle again
depends on that of the towing vehicle. Regardless of which towing vehicle the
customer is driving – Land Rover, Toyota, Jeep, Nissan, etc. any common bolt
circle is possible.
Of course, the trailer
can also be delivered with any other off-road tyre at the express request of
The trailer is
equipped with modern high quality LED lighting. All plugs are designed as
absolutely waterproof Superseal connectors. Each lighting element, no matter
whether boundary or side marker light is pluggable. If a light is damaged in
the terrain, it can be easily and quickly replaced.
The onboard electrics
are completely separated from the trailer lighting from the supply line of the
The technical room of
the trailer is located in the drawbar box. This is where the fuse box and the
on-board computer are located, which are used to query the current battery
charge status of the trailer, the filling level of the water tank, the charging
current of the solar system and much more. The drawbar box also contains the
air supply for the chassis, the water pump and the gas bottle for hot water and
The onboard system has
a modern 100Ah LiFePO4 battery for storage and supply in the camp. These
batteries are perfect for camping use and only about half as heavy as
conventional lead or AGM batteries. The on-board system has a memory system and
a flexible charging system. The on-board battery of the trailer is not only
charged via the vehicle during the journey, but also via a permanently mounted
110W solar panel. In the camp it is possible to connect an additional foldable
solar panel (e.g. 120W power). If you spend a few days on a camping site, the
trailer can alternatively be charged via the 230V mains.
USB sockets and
cigarette lighters are conveniently distributed on the trailer to either power
or charge the equipment.
