TUFF-TREK ® are the exclusive UK importer and distributor for METALIAN Off-road trailers. These 4×4 overland trailers are hand made in South Africa, to exacting standards, designed to handle the most serious terrain. Manufactured from 3CR12 stainless steel METALIAN Trailers (Body, Doors, and Drawbar etc) offer excellent corrosion resistance and strength but  low weight.

METALIAN Trailers are designed to carry you and your equipment and family where ever you wish to roam, and to do so in rugged, world class comfort.

Available by SPECIAL ORDER only / lead time varies but  normally around 16x weeks.


With simple design and light weight GENIE is ideal for all vehicles, not just large 4x4x. The low weight means it can be towed by vans and small cars.

Genie boasts a large drop down LHS cupboard, ideal for using a stove, or upgrade to our integrated twin burner stove. RHS drop down cupboard is ideal for electrical kit, recovery gear etc.

Down low is more storage space, large enough for equipment, plus battery/water tank etc. The optional 80/20 Aluminium Nose Cone greatly increases available storage space and looks great.

GENIE will be supplied with IVA certification.
