Another Invader, the Quattro, makes it into 8th place in the off-road trailer competition this year. This unbelievably spacious unit has extended living areas, big enough for 4 to 6 people. The chassis is a galvanised ladder-type chassis with an auto reverse coupler with 2000kg rated run-in brake capacity. The 10 blade leaf spring system offers good rigidity over rough terrain and the solid axle is rated to 1800kg. It is shod with three 15” rims with 245 x R15 all-terrain tyres. The Quattro has a 250mm removable heavy-duty jockey wheel and a removable lifting leg. Also present are two quick release rear support struts and a 100 litre chassis mounted water tank is standard.
The body is manufactured from seamless and flexible construction from laminated fiberglass with two Jerry can brackets. The large nose box with side doors and fridge slider for a large fridge simply adds to the convenience of this off-road trailer. It also has a gas bottle bracket and a 3kg gas bottle.
The slide-out stove unit with a 2 plate stainless steel gas hob and the kitchen unit with microwave and Teflon work surface make cooking in the outdoors a real pleasure. There is a slide out double basin for cleaning dishes after a successful braai in the bush.
There is a 220 volt AC 3 point all-weather exterior multi-plug, a 3 point plug with 2 point Euro socket in the interior, five 12 volt DC sockets (3 exterior & 2 interior) and a 105 amp deep cycle battery. Also present is a 30amp PBE battery charging system and solar charge regulator. The interior has hot foil wrapped marine ply cupboards fitted with vanity basin with a standard double and ¾ bed with a high density foam mattresses. Industrial wood finish flooring is used under foot. There are two seating areas with a removable portable toilet and a canvas tent with mosquito netting on the windows and an all-weather cover. There are side awnings and a zip-on rear and front awning, a reflective sheet and a large patio.
The Invader Quattro is robust in design, wins in the good looks department and is ready to take on any terrain your tow vehicle can handle.
