Conqueror Off Road Trailers
Mega Manufacturers has extensive experience in the design and manufacture of trailers, originally in the military
environment and later extended to the off road camping and safari market. The Company has always taken an
aggressive and innovative approach in the design of their vehicles, not satisfied with merely following current norms
and procedures. This has led to a range of vehicles where innovative design, thorough field testing and unique
manufacturing processes resulted in making the Company a leader in the African off road market. African road and
infrastructure conditions may be the most severe in the world and our vehicles is thus rugged enough to withstand
anything that may be encountered on any other continent.
Electro galvanized steel is mainly used for the chassis and body construction of Conqueror trailers. The use of natural
materials i.e. wood is totally eliminated. Hinges and latches are manufactured from stainless steel and various grades
of aluminium are used for non structural parts. Tents are manufactured from coated rip stop canvas, while nylon or
other less durable materials are avoided.
The backbone of any vehicle is the chassis. The main construction of our chassis is 3 mm steel manufactured on NC
machinery for accuracy. Other critical parts in thicker steel are laser cut. The chassis parts are then powder coated
or hot dip galvanized. Welding as part of chassis construction is virtually eliminated by using individual parts bolted
together. The occurrence of metal fatigue and stress concentrations in our chassis is very low as a result of this.
Another plus of the technique is the fact that damaged parts are easily replaced in the field.
Axle and Wheels
Solid beam braked axles are used in the trailers while a patented independent suspension with stabilizers is used in
our caravans. Heavy duty shock absorbers are used throughout. Vehicles for the South African market are fitted with
cast iron couplers with integral auto reverse brakes and handbrakes. This has proved to be the most reliable system
for severe conditions. Hubs and wheels may be fitted to suit most standard towing vehicle specifications.
Body construction is also based on modular concepts. Body parts are manufactured with NC equipment ensuring a
high degree of accuracy. Parts are then individually powder coated. The body is constructed using high modulus
polyurethane glue in all joints with a range of high quality fasteners. This method is similar to that being employed
in the aircraft industry, producing a vehicle which is light and resilient. It is for this reason that our trailers perform
very well in off road conditions because of reduced weight coupled with the elimination of metal fatigue and corrosion.
Body parts can be replaced with a minimum of effort. Automotive seals are used on all doors and special care in the
design is taken to ensure a water and dust tight vehicle. Pre-manufactured wiring looms with high quality connectors
are used for all electrical circuits.
All models can be equipped with a purpose made range of tents and awnings which is recognized as the best designed
and of highest quality in the industry. Provision for all accessories and add-ons is made during the design process
of the vehicle. Anchor points, mounting holes and routings are thus part of the basic vehicle, which make the
installation of equipment at any stage very easy and accurate. Mega Manufacturers is a well established supplier in the
market and top seller in SA with an excellent reputation. Backup and support for our products is a high priority in the
