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.


Compact foot print, strong construction and light weight make GENIE ideal for all vehicles, not just large 4x4x. The low curb weight means it can be towed by vans and small cars.

Metalian Genie boasts a large drop down LHS cupboard with integrated twin burner stove and a lift up lockable storage section for cutlery etc, fully equipped with optional canvas inserts etc. On the RHS is a full length drop down cupboard with built in locking storage and fully fitted canvas inserts. Behind this is extra space for storage.

At the rear is a spare wheel, with Optional 180kg full length FRIDGE SLIDER platform. Below this is extra 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.
