The Invader Duo makes it into 6th place in this year’s competition, and what a great off-road trailer they have produced. The entire roof is raised pneumatically electrically at the push of a button and complete setup takes less than 2 minutes. Have a look at the setup video on the Invader website, it’s certainly something worth watching.
The closed length of the Duo is 4150mm, as is the open length. The height of this unit is 1800mm and the height when open is 2850mm. The chassis is a galvanised ladder-type with an auto reverse coupler with 2000kg rated run-in brake capacity. Suspension is a 10 blade leaf spring system with a 1800kg rated solid axle. The Duo has 3 x 15” 6 stud rims with 245 x R15 all terrain tyres and a 250mm removable heavy-duty jockey wheel. It also has 2 quick release rear support struts and a 100 litre chassis mounted water tank. The Duo also features an external shower unit.
The body is made up of seamless and flexible construction from laminated fiberglass making it lighter. It has 2 Jerry can brackets, a large nose box with, side doors and a fridge slider that can house up to a 95L fridge. There is a gas bottle bracket with a 3kg gas bottle and a slide out stove unit with a 2 plate stainless steel gas hob. Two drawers keep the crockery for four people.

Hot foil wrapped marine ply cupboards fitted with a vanity basin and a double bed with a high density foam mattress is standard. Industrial wood finished flooring and 2 seating areas with a removable portable toilet is also standard. The canvas tent has windows with mosquito netting, all-weather covers and window awnings. The Duo by Invader is a worthy contender in the off-road trailer of the year competition and richly deserves all the accolades it has received.
