Hi All,

I am new to the forum and after plenty of research I have decided to buy a conqueror (or kavango, but leaning towards conqueror). I am yet to decide 440 or 490 and whether to get old or new. 

I would like some help from other members. Can any one please let me know if there is any major difference between the 490 2013 model vs the current model.

I looked at some used one's and noticed the latches rust easily. Is it common? 

Cheers
kams

Hi Kams

Welcome to the forum. Heaps of info and advice can be found here to help you make your decision.

The great thing about these trailers is the desgin has not changed with the exception of the introduction of the upgraded UEV range (suspension, running gear etc). The only changes between the models are upgrades in the "elektrickery" contained in them. That is the Battery Management System , water gauges, switch panels etc. so the answer to your question, no there are no major differences between the models. (If you don't like something, like the BMS, you can swap it out later).

When you are talking about the latches rusting, are you talking about the over centre catches on the tool boxes etc, the anti Luce catches on the rear support legs etc or the main door latches? Katherine first two will rust because they are not powder coated. The door catches will rust where the powder oat is mocked off. How bad were the ones you have looked at. My first trailer had some rust on the latches, but nothing I though was abnormal. My new trailer is - well new.

Cheers

Anthony
