We've worked hard to hold the line on pricing as much as possible over the last couple of years but unfortunately rising production costs and in particular the falling CAD$ has really
had an impact as many of the input costs such as the tents and also many trailer parts are tied to the USD. As such, we are having to increase prices on BushRanger trailers and OZtrail trailer tents beginning February 1, 2016. Orders placed before Feb 1st will still receive the 2015 pricing (shown currently as "sale" pricing). After Feb 1st, orders placed will be at the new  pricing (currently showing as the "regular" pricing). 

An approximate 10% price increase is also expected for Echo Trailers although we are waiting for this to be confirmed by the manufacturer.

There will also be changes to our trailer lineup for 2016. As a reflection of overall demand, and in an effort to streamline production, the BushRanger 150 and 160LE models have been discontinued, at least as far as stock items go. The BushRanger 200 and 200XT models continue to be our most popular models sold. We will continue to carry the Outer Ridge Venturer tent which is used on the BushRanger SE model as well as being very popular with military trailer owners (M101 and M416) so it will still be possible to custom build a BushRanger 160, it just won't be a regular stock model moving forward.

Previously we have offered two versions of the BushRanger 200XT suspension - TorFlex and Timbren - and the Timbren suspension has proven to be the most popular option by a long shot over the TorFlex setup. As such, we have now made the Timbren suspension standard for the BushRanger 200 XT. It will still be possible to build a TorFlex model if desired, but it just won't be something offered as a standard feature. Similarly, the XT models will now come with the rear receiver hitch, and hammered paint finish options as standard inclusions.

No one likes increased prices, and we're very sorry for any extra pressure this may put on your purchasing plans, but rest assured we will continue to look for any opportunities to keep prices as competitive as possible in a fluid economic environment.

Sincerely,

Matt Broadbent - Owner
