Fred and Elisabeth visited Europe in September 2012 to investigate the purchase of a sturdy, light weight tent-trailer to become their home during the 5-year tour. They had explored the options of Australian, US, Canadian, French, German and Danish manufactured tent-trailers, but settled on the Dutch award-winning, glass fibre enclosed, highly versatile Zambezi Cross-Road as manufactured by Aart Kok of Heemstede, the Netherlands.

The trailer has a small fridge unit, a small chemical toilet and many other travel necessities. Its total maximum weight is 600kg.
